Uncharted 4 doesn’t have multiple endings. It has only one ending which serves as the definitive ending to Nathan Drake’s story as of now. Even though the game has dialogue options at certain parts, they all lead to the same ending regardless of the option you choose. 

The playable epilogue places you into the shoes of Cassie Drake, the daughter of Nathan and Elena. The ending shows an older and settled down Nathan and Elena hiding their treasure hunting past from their daughter but they realize that it’s time to let Cassie know about it. The game ends with Nathan explaining their story to Cassie with Elena.

Uncharted 4 can be brutal, but only if you want it to be. If you play the game at Crushing difficulty on your first playthrough, no matter how familiar with the franchise and its mechanics, the game will be very challenging regardless.  

It is always advised to start a game at a balanced difficulty on the first playthrough and then increase it when the game is replayed. If you’re confident about completing the game on Crushing difficulty on your first playthrough, go for it. 

4. Will there be an Uncharted 5?

There have been multiple rumors regarding Uncharted 5, the most recent being Naughty Dog outsourcing another studio to make the game. Everything is speculation at this point, but if an Uncharted 5 is in development, don’t expect it anytime soon.
