Let Nolan North ruin Uncharted 2s Tibetan village scene for you

Oh, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Why do we love you so? Well probably being one of the best games ever made probably has something to do with it. And we’re not the only ones – Nolan North, the man behind Nathan Drake’s voicebox and swagger also has a soft spot for the series’ sophomore entry (most notably because that train scene got him a cameo in a Star Trek movie). Oddly, for a game with so many stand out action set-pieces, it’s one of the game’s more sedate moments that sits fondly in his heart…

In the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, North describes what it was like to motion capture the enchanting stroll through that calm mountain setting. “Well, the village, it was interesting. This was kind of just one of those things where they let me riff as we walked through,” he recalls. “I just remember walking up to these people interacting with me: ‘Hi! Hi.’ You know? There are chickens jumping around and… it was such an interesting place. Like here when [I] walk up and I’m like ‘Anybody speak English?’ – I literally got to say whatever I wanted.”

The latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, with four collectible covers (featuring Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Fallout 4, The Division and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst) and a limited edition subscribers cover featuring The Last Guardian, is out now.
