This photo of Nathan Drake is an excellent reminder that waiting for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is going to be worth it.

Naughty Dog's recently Tweeted image of Nathan Drake from Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a reminder that gamers grow and get older, but that doesn't necessary make aging a bad thing. Drake has certainly aged from when we have last seen him, but he also looks much more lifelike than before. The image was used to tease the closing of Naughty Dog's 30th Anniversary celebration with a lecture in 3D modeling. As you can tell by the photo, Drake and Uncharted 4 will be a big part of the talk Naughty Dog will be giving at this lecture.

While not drastically older, we're glad to see that Naughty Dog isn't scared to let their characters grow in terms of age. Joel from The Last of Us was older than the average game protagonist and it looks like Drake is now in his mid 30s based in this photo, which puts him in the same age range as the gamers who grew up on the Atari 2600 and NES.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will launch sometime in 2015 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
