Naughty Dog has released a teaser trailer for a newly announced Uncharted game coming exclusively to PlayStation 4.

During the prime of the PS3 the Uncharted games easily established themselves as one of console’s flagship franchises. That said, you could understand many people expecting that the PlayStation 4 would inevitably play host to a treasure hunting, banter-laden adventure of its own. It would seem those suspicions were valid as Naughty Dog, the developer behind the franchise, has released a teaser trailer confirming that a new iteration, simply dubbed Uncharted, is in the works exclusively for the PS4.

The teaser itself isn’t much more than a camera shifting its way across some old looking paper while drawings and writing appear, forming a map. While this is happening an ominous voice monologues about chains that “can never be broken” and how someone (we’re assuming a plucky hero voiced by Nolan North) left him to rot in a “hellhole.” While the developers haven’t said who this character is, they’ve confirmed that the actor behind the voice is Todd Stashwick and that he will play someone in the actual game.

Beyond these details, Naughty Dog wasn’t able to reveal anything more about the game. “Our goal is to continue what we’ve done in previous console generations and once again deliver the best in storytelling, performance capture, technical innovation and graphics on the PS4,” said the studio. While we have little doubt that Naughty Dog will deliver on this ambition, we can’t help but be curious about where this new game will take the series. We won’t spoil anything, but Uncharted 3 did a fair job of tying up Nathan Drake’s arc rather nicely. Our suspicion, in turn, is that Mr. Stashwick’s character is going to be seeking revenge on Drake for some past slight, giving the hero an excuse to throw his perpetually perfect hair into the fray once again.
