Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has a very elaborate Easter egg that involves Nathan Drake playing an emulated version of Crash Bandicoot, one of the first games that developer Naughty Dog ever made. It’s one of the more in-depth Easter eggs in recent memory. We won’t spoil the scene for you, but it’s well worth a watch.
You can see the sequence here in this YouTube video from Hexoradon (via GameZone–spoilers here). It is possible Uncharted 4 has even more Easter eggs; as we learn more, we’ll report back with new details.
Uncharted 4 launches on May 10 exclusively for PlayStation 4. Reviews for the game started to show up today, and critics are handing out high praise. It is the last game in the series Naughty Dog plans to make and the final one that stars Nathan Drake. However, there could be an Uncharted 5.
“In its writing, in its design, in its understanding of what makes games unique, Uncharted 4 is something to aspire to,” critic Mike Mahardy said. “It’s a shining example. And we’ll be talking about it for years to come.”
