Speaking to Rolling Stone just a few days ago, Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann revealed some interesting cut content from Uncharted 4, on top of talking about the sexist playtester that they had to throw out.
The entire interview can be found on the Rolling Stone website, where Druckmann reveals that he has a “list of things that we cut from the game that I’ve been keeping.”
After being pressed further on the matter, Druckmann states that “there used to be a cooking sequence, where you were actually mixing in ingredients. You could make the food too spicy, and they would have different dialogue, depending on how spicy you made it. That got cut.”
“In Scotland, you could do a snowball fight. This was actually fully working. You could pick up snow anywhere and throw it at Sam, and he would throw snowballs at you. But tonally, that just felt wrong.”
“You could play fetch with the dog in the epilogue. There was a ball when you walked outside, and you could pick it up and throw it, and the dog had A.I. to actually pick it up and run back to you.”
This isn’t the first time cut content from Uncharted 4 has been brought up by someone who worked on the game. Troy Baker previously revealed that a set piece he was “massively in love with” was cut from the finished product.
