Bruce Straley, who co-directed The Last of Us and Uncharted 4, will not have the same role on The Last of Us 2, sources tell Kotaku. His longtime creative partner Neil Druckmann is directing the game.

I’ve taken nice shots in Uncharted 4's photo mode, you’ve probably taken some too, but professional real world photographer Ray Soemarsono has us all beat with these incredible images.

If you’ve started playing Uncharted 4, by now you’ve probably gotten up to that scene. The secret one. You know, the one in chapter four.
Most big video games these days are the result of a team of dozens, if not hundreds of people working on them. Amidst all that collaboration, what can one, single human being point to and say “this, this is mine, I made this?”
Last year during E3, hundreds of thousands watched as Nathan Drake walked into a Madagascar market and then... froze in place thanks to a controller error. Now, you can do it yourself.
