Sony had to alter the new Uncharted 4 story trailer – here’s why

Naughty Dog has been quite the badly behaved canine. 

The new story trailer for the fourth instalment of the superb adventure series Uncharted teased gamers with over two minutes of footage - but a single shot that appeared to take a playful swipe at Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series has resulted in Sony having to change the footage.

Here's the new trailer...

Pretty great, right?

In the original release, a picture hanging on the wall around 1:36 caught the attention of Assassin's Creed head of content Azaïzia Aymar. A painting of a beach and rock arch was actually a direct copy of concept published for Assassin's Creed Black Flag...

Uncharted's Nathan Drake has always employed a roguish comic streak throughout his adventures - but Ubisoft might not have seen the funny side of it.

Uncharted 4 arrives on PlayStation 4 on 26 April
