Uncharted 4 for PS4 is scheduled to be released on May 10th.The talent featuredin the game has already let some spoilers slip.
Troy Baker, the voice of Sam Drake let the cat out of the bag when he mentioned that some of the content has been removed from the game.
"Games are a very iterative process, and the same thing can be said for pretty much every game that comes out. There was a huge set piece in Uncharted 4 that I was massively in love with, that had to get cut. Because it was either the game shipped broken and that scene is in there, or we put out a better game and that scene isn't there. No one will ever miss what they didn't know," he said in an interview with GamersFTW.
‘Set pieces’, in-game events,aren’t typically included as part of the gameplay mechanics; the most popular one was in Uncharted 2 –it was a memorable part of the game where you dodged enemies and a gunship, all while on a speeding train.
There’s nothing unordinary about content being cut off; however, what’s unusual is to hear about it before the release. Baker didn’t specify what exactly was removed, so there may yet be room to hope that the ‘set piece’ will be available later as downloadable content (DLC) or as an unexpected Uncharted spin off, because Naughty Dog states that this is going to be the last we see of Nathan Drake.
Additionally, in ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ Baker was also the voice actor for the character Revolver Ocelot. He feels that Uncharted 4 could’ve been better with the content that has been removed,but he couldn’t say the same about the Hideo Kojima’s final Konami game.
"With Metal Gear, I wish there'd been more that had been cut. I feel like there's times when Ocelot would tell you: 'remember, if you want to shoot the gun, pull the trigger'. You know, it kind of got the point where we were over tutorialising the player, and I think that players today, especially Metal Gear players, are really smart, are really savvy. I don't think there's ever anything wrong with me as a player going 'I don't know what to do'. Because now I'm really invested in that game. So I think you can always cut. I think you can always cut."
