I'm fine with this as long as the tone is closer to the first 3 games i'm down. I didn't love Sam but didn't hate him either.

Why do people dislike Sam???
It's the final Uncharted, and instead of focusing on the characters we loved they threw a new name into the mix that dominated over everything bar Nate.

Hoping for a Chloe & Cutter appearance in the DLC but I won't hold my breath.

Nice. Sort of like infamous kept the universe but focused on a side character. Wish we would see more of this, alternate perspectives on the same universe.

Eh. I didn't hate Sam or anything but I'm not down for a whole campaign with just him and no Nate.

If they were looking for a character to spin off into a starring role, Chloe would have been about a thousand times more appealing.

I guess they went with the more predictable route.
A side-story with Cloe and Cutter would've been nice to give the characters a proper farewell, but I'll take it, curious to see what Sam and good old Sully are up to.
I'd really like this to be something like Mass Effect's Citadel which was a perfect send-off for those characters.
I hope Elena makes an appearence at least, really gonna miss her, Emily does such a great job with the character and has such a soothing voice.

But Sam helped explain why Nate is who he is.

Not sure if I want this tbh. I didn't really grow super attached to Sam even after playing the game once and watching my friend play a second time.

There's an optional conversation in the waterfall during the Towers chapter where Sully mentions an old friend in Brazil. That, and Brazil is a very big country with a LOT of dense jungles you could hide treasures in ;)
I've completed the optional conversation trophy, but must have forgot Sully mentioning that.

Yeah, I'm ready for an amazingly looking Amazon jungle level :)

Give Sam a chance people. Don't write off a standalone story before you have even seen it.

I'm down for anything that ND will create. Left behind was great as well.

Not only that
On the chapter Sam and Nate are exploring Evelyn's house as kids there is Also a Brazil reference. They play with one of those spinning globes and Sam talks about wanting to go Brazil and about the Amazon rainforest and stuff

Im sure it will be t(here)

So it might not be Sam focused?

Someone made the point earlier in the thread but Naughty Dog's potentially last major Uncharted-related thing being focused on Plot Device Drake would be a bummer.

Even Cutter/Chloe could be a fun way to close out the series.

It has Sully so am in, but I also wanted Chloe, she at least deserves a send off ND.

Edit: Missed Shinobi's post, yay there's hope! Sam is fine, but he shouldn't be the final story of the (ND) Uncharted games.

Just to clarify my earlier post, I quite liked Sam but I don't want my final Uncharted experience to be with him.

He's a fine character (though his arc is totally ridiculous) but I hope we get some action-orientated prequel story with Nate.

Then again, that kind of goes against where we left him and even though a prequel would be cool I'm not sure I'd want to go back to swashbuckling Nate after the end of UC4.

But dammit, I want my action!

The spoiler tagged part makes me sad. I was hoping that character would be the main character for the DLC.

Darn, I was hoping the DLC would revolve around Nate going through a divorce battle with Elena so that he could be with his one true beloved, Marisa Chase.

Really baffled by how much hate Sam is getting. I mean sure, he's an arragant, slapable goit, but that's older brothers in a nutshell, and I'm incredibly excited for another story with him, especially alongside Sully.
Exactly .
Can't wait to see what those 2 characters can do together .. the possibilities they are clearly there.

So much Sam hate. It makes me sad.

Was this the only DLC they're going to do? I thought I read something about them doing 2 or 3 story DLCs. It would be cool if another one featured Chloe or Elena. I thought Elena would make for a cool DLC if she got caught up in some stuff while getting the permit or scoping out Malaysia. Something like that.

I'd much prefer DLC featuring
Cassie. The DLC could work as a 'backdoor pilot' for the character. Depending on how well-received it is, Naughty Dog could then go on to make her own series of Uncharted games.
