A new promotional video for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has appeared today to confirm the bonus content given to anyone who pre-orders at Gamestop. Don’t let yourself get too excited by the reveal, however, as you may find yourself in for quite the disappointment when you check out the clip.
The trailer demonstrates the exclusive taunt that players will be able to use in Uncharted 4‘s multiplayer modes. The taunt involves tossing the Phurba Dagger – an iconic item from Uncharted 2 – in the air before catching it with a dash of panache. You’ll get far more than a fleeting glance at this in the trailer, too; the whole thing is nothing more than a compilation of the animation over and over again.
The Gamestop pre-order does also include some single-use multiplayer boosts, as well as the game’s standard pre-order outfit and golden weapon skin. Nevertheless, this so-called exclusive is a seriously underwhelming addition, begging the question of why it’s even worthy of its own trailer. If nothing else, perhaps we can hope that this spells the beginning of the end for retailer-exclusive game content?
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is due for release for the PlayStation 4 on May 10.
