I’m thrilled to announce that I will be playing a significant character in the upcoming Uncharted for the PS4. http://t.co/mZba98FcIH— Todd Stashwick (@ToddStashwick) November 15, 2013
A "significant character", ey?
Haven't seen it mentioned yet in any post in this thread, unless I completely overlooked it. Did anyone pick up on the part about "Every betrayed us all". At first I didn't pay much attention to it, but by the 3rd time I watched the trailer it begain to stick out to me that Every, could be a name. A simple google search and what do you know:
"Henry Every was a seventeenth century pirate who was called “The Arch Pirate” and “The King of Pirates” by his contemporaries, staged the most profitable pirate raid in history, and was never caught – retiring to enjoy his wealth. He also betrayed a lot of his men, and his wealth wasn’t found. He did operate around Africa, as well as India and the Caribbean. It’s important to note that the time Every operated in was long after Sir Francis Drake."
This along with the pirate looking character models, gives us some good stuff to speculate on.
Yeah, there are strong hints regarding a pirates Uncharted game.
Libertatia (also known as Libertalia) was a possibly fictional anarchist colony founded in the late 17th century in Madagascar by pirates under the leadership of Captain James Misson. Whether or not Libertatia actually existed is disputed. It is described in the book A General History of the Pyrates by Captain Charles Johnson, an otherwise unknown individual who may have been apseudonym of Daniel Defoe. Much of the book is a mixture of fact and fiction, and it is possible the account of Libertatia is entirely fabricated.
According to Johnson's description, Libertatia lasted for about 25 years. The precise location is not known, however, most sources say it stretched from the Bay of Antongil to Mananjary, including Île Sainte Marie and Foulpointe. Thomas Tew, Misson, and an Italian Dominican priest named Caraccioli were involved in founding it.
Building upon the legend, Skol brewery released a beer, Libertalia whose advertising is largely centered around the island's history of piracy.
The pirate utopia's motto was "for God and liberty," and its flag was white, in contrast to a Jolly Roger. They were anarchist, waging war against states and lawmakers, attacking their ships, sparing prisoners, and freeing slaves. They called themselves Liberi, and lived under a communal city rule, a sort of worker owned corporation of piracy. They had articles (shared codes of conduct), and used elected systems of re-callable delegates.
Misson was French, born in Provence, and it was while in Rome on leave from the French warship Victoire that he lost his faith, disgusted by the decadence of the Papal Court. In Rome he ran into Caraccioli - a "lewd Priest" who over the course of long voyages with little to do but talk, gradually converted Misson and a sizeable portion of the rest of the crew to his way of thinking:
…he fell upon Government, and shew'd, that every Man was born free, and had as much Right to what would support him, as to the Air he respired... that the vast Difference betwixt Man and Man, the one wallowing in Luxury, and the other in the most pinching Necessity, was owing only to Avarice and Ambition on the one Hand, and a pusillanimous Subjection on the other.
Embarking on a career of piracy, the 200 strong crew of the Victoire called upon Misson to be their captain. They shared the wealth of the ship, deciding "all should be in common." All decisions were to be put to "the Vote of the whole Company." Thus they set out on their new "Life of Liberty." Off the west coast of Africa they captured a Dutch slave ship. The slaves were freed and brought aboard the Victoire, Misson declaring that "the Trading for those of our own Species, cou'd never be agreeable to the Eyes of divine Justice: That no Man had Power of Liberty of another" and that "he had not exempted his Neck from the galling Yoak of Slavery, and asserted his own Liberty, to enslave others." At every engagement they added to their numbers with new French, English and Dutch recruits, and freed African slaves.
While cruising round the coast of Madagascar, Misson found a perfect bay in an area with fertile soil, fresh water and friendly natives. Here the pirates built Libertalia, renouncing their titles of English, French, Dutch or African and calling themselves Liberi. They created their own language, a polyglot mixture of African languages, combined with French, English, Dutch, Portuguese and native Malagasy. Shortly after the beginning of building work on the colony of Libertalia, the Victoire ran into the pirate Thomas Tew, who decided to accompany them back to Libertalia. Such a colony was no new idea to Tew; he had lost his quartermaster and 23 of his crew when they had left to form a settlement further up the Madagascan coast. The Liberi - "Enemies to Slavery," aimed to boost their numbers by capturing another slave ship. Off the coast of Angola, Tew's crew took an English slave ship with 240 men, women and children below decks. The African members of the pirate crew discovered many friends and relatives among the enslaved and struck off their fetters and handcuffs, regaling them with the glories of their new life of liberty.
The pirates settled down to become farmers, holding the land in common - "no Hedge bounded any particular Man's Property." Prizes and money taken at sea were "carry'd into the common Treasury, Money being of no Use where every Thing was in common."
I was watching SpikeTV.
They showed the dlc of TloU.
Then came up with the phrase: "we have one more thing to show you".
At this very moment I knew it would be Uncharted.
I have so much love for this franchise =)
sorry for my bad english, I'm from Brazil.
But I hate pirate stuff. Nate doing stuff with ancient pirate stuff, sure. He did it about all the time. But playing as pirates? Nah.
But you don't know who we're playing as. ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!
Yar need a lesson in de art o' spekulatin, matey! Jump on de brig of spekulatin', or I be hangin' you from de poop deck rafter, I will!
Oh... If there's no Drake, Elena, Sully or Chloe, I'm going to be sad. I love those characters, they are light hearted and can crack jokes, but still serious at the right times. And the guy talking sounds really dark (If it's a villain, it's all good though!).
Well, since Amy Hennig seems to be working on it, I'm sure it will be a great story either way.
was she working on Uncharted 3 ??? because the story in 3 was below average.
