At the end of today’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End demo, Nathan Drake comes across a new ally who turns out to be his older brother. At least, that’s what his line, “Good to see you’re still alive, little brother” suggests.
Following the video’s debut at Sony’s Las Vegas-based PlayStation Experience event, voice actor Troy Baker took to Twitter to confirm that it was his voice we heard when that line was spoken.
“Good to see you’re alive, little brother.” Yes, that was me. Damn proud.

This certainly doesn’t come as a surprise, though, as Troy Baker has become the new Nolan North. In fact, Troy has recently appeared in a handful of major releases, including Tales from the Borderlands (as Rhys), The Crew (as Alex Taylor) and Far Cry 4 (as Pagan Min), not to mention Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (as Talion) and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (as Jack Mitchell).
Furthermore, he’ll be back for Batman: Arkham Knight when it launches next year, portraying acid-covered Two-Face in Rocksteady’s third and final game starring the Caped Crusader. That is, in addition to a notable role as Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. What a busy guy.
