Hindu Leaders Ask Naughty Dog To Be Respectful Of Religious Sentiments In Uncharted Lost Legacy

The Uncharted 4’s expansion ‘Uncharted:The Lost Legacy’ has received a statement from Rajan Zed, the President of Universal Society of Hinduism. While he welcomed the exploration of Hinduism and it’s beliefs in Video Games and other medium, he also expressed concerns about it being taken lightly and not given due respect.

I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s something we’re excited about on the gameplay side, this kind of contrast of an urban setting and a rural setting; a tighter ...
