Video Game Music of the Week - 258
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (PlayStation 4)
A Thief’s End, Cut To The Chase, Reunited, For Better Or Worse
The fourth entry in the Uncharted series was the first to release on the PlayStation 4. While it follows many of the traditions set forth by the original three games, there is a very obvious shift in tone, which is especially noticeable in the games music.
A Thief’s End
This track plays during the opening credits in the game, which takes place just after the second chapter. The song features the main Uncharted theme that's found throughout the series, however this rendition features a much more serious tone.
Cut To The Chase
Cut To The Chase is an action track that plays immediately upon beginning the story in Uncharted 4. Both the game, and music, through you directly into the deep end, making for an interesting Prologue, before jumping back in time to detail how you make it to that specific point.
Reunited also features the main Uncharted theme melody, but in a very different way. It is very similar to the first song, A Thief's End, in that it maintains a more serious tone, especially when compared to the music of the original trilogy of games in the series.
For Better Or Worse
This track really represents the specific story between Nate and Elena during the course of Uncharted 4. It's a slow and relatively quiet track that features some very emotive tones and touches, helping to build upon the intense emotional themes in the story.
