Uncharted 4: Assassin's Creed-themed easter unveiled by one of the animators

Uncharted 4

Easter eggs are a constant in the gaming world. Developers love to insert them and fans love to track them down, thus demonstrating their knowledge. Now, on the occasion of Easter, one of the animators who worked on Uncharted 4 and Uncharted The Lost Legacy reveals that the two games feature an Assassin's Creed themed Easter egg.

The Lost Legacy is better known, as there is also a trophy attached to it and it activates very quickly. Less well known, however, is that of Uncharted 4. As you can see in the video below shared by the animator in question, Jonathan Cooper, you have to reach the top of a specific building and wait several seconds without touching the buttons or levers of the controller . At that point, the game will begin moving the camera around Nathan, away from the character, in a style very similar to the Assassin's Creed tower synchronizations.

Cooper further states that part of the reason why such Easter eggs have been added in Uncharted 4 and Uncharted The Lost Legacy is a willingness to apologize to the Assassin's Creed Black Flag team for inadvertently putting a concept art from the Ubisoft game in an Uncharted 4 trailer.

If you want to find the easter egg too, you have to go to the clock tower in chapter 11 and climb to the top. Finally, we would like to point out that the Uncharted film has been postponed, even if for a few days.

Uncharted 4 Has a Hidden Assassin’s Creed Feature Many Never Knew Existed

Easter may be over but there are still plenty of eggs to be found in video games.

Recently, there seems to be a surge in Easter Eggs being found in the popular games we all know and love. Whether it’s from The Last of Us Part 2 or It Takes Two, those sneaky little treasures are popping up all over the place and we love it.

It’s hard to believe that years after a title’s release, inquisitive players still manage to find easter eggs secretly tucked away inside a game’s nooks and crannies. While some take some work to uncover, others sometimes need a little hint from the developer.

Assassin’s Creed enters Uncharted 4’s World

Animator Jonathan Cooper who worked on the Naughty Dogs Uncharted series, as well as The Last of Us and Assassin’s Creed, recently found himself in a conversation on Twitter surrounding the topic of Easter Eggs hidden by devs in a game.

Cooper decided that this was the best time to disclose a little secret animation he had hidden in Uncharted 4 when he was working on it.

Hidden in plain sight

Cooper stated that he hid an Assassin’s Creed synchronization in Uncharted 4 that sees Nathan Drake standing on top of a clock tower just like in the Creed titles.

We’ve already learned about the Assassin’s Creed Easter egg in Lost Legacy but most players had no idea that Uncharted 4 had exactly the same one, too.

Cooper said that one of the reasons the synchronization easter egg lay mostly uncovered for so long is that the animation only kicks in when players don’t touch their controllers for some time.

Where can you find the Assassin’s Creed Easter Egg in Uncharted 4?

The clock tower is located in Chapter 11 – Hidden in Plain Sight. The main door to the tower is locked, but if you travel around it to the right and walk across the ledge, hop over to the pillar, you can then climb up onto the ledge and up the side of the tower.

That’s after you’ve been inside and completed the puzzles, of course.
