Naughty Dog and PlayStation have released a new video about the making of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which tackles the art design and character development.

Editor's Note: This post was written by Game Informer Associate Editor Elise Favis 

The video includes interviews with several of the games designers, developers, and voice actors, from art director Roph Ruppel to voice actor Nolan North.

Ruppel gives insight onto Nathan Drake's character development over the course of the series, and how technological advancements now make it possible to present small details like wrinkles and other facial aging qualities on Nathan. "As we got better, and as the platforms got better, we can see [Nathan] not only get more complex and more sophisticated, but he also is aging," Ruppel said.

Voice actors Nolan North and Emily Rose also speak about their attachment to characters Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher, and how it has grown through the years.

Nolan North explained that, "Wisdom comes from experience and time, and Nathan Drake certainly has had enough experiences that lends itself to a lot of wisdom if he's paying attention." 

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is due for release May 10, 2016. You can check out our hub for the game from our February 2015 coverage.
