Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will feature conversation trees. Speaking to Eurogamer, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann revealed that the fourth installment of the treasure-hunting action games will include dialogue with optional responses. This would be a first for the series, as previous Uncharted games have kept dialogue scripted with no player interaction. Druckmann pointed out the scale of the feature will be limited and will not be a primary gameplay addition.
“The thing I want to make sure we’re clear about is that we’re not making Mass Effect,” Druckmann elaborates with a wry smile. “Uncharted has a very specific story, it has a very specific ending that’s very definitive to the franchise. But every once in a while we felt a dialogue tree would really bring you more into the scene.”
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 26th.
