Uncover the dark secret behind the 400-year-old massacre of a Spanish expedition as Nathan Drake follows the murderous trail of an ancient and secret Spanish sect. Caught in the middle of a rivalry between Jason Dante – his old friend – and Marisa Chase – the granddaughter of an archeologist who has mysteriously vanished without a trace – Nate races into the treacherous river basins, undiscovered temple ruins and karst caverns of Central America in search of a legendary lost city, only to find himself pushed to the edge of the Golden Abyss…

Uncharted: Golden Abyss is currently being developed by SCE Bend Studio, with development overseen by Naughty Dog. No release date has been announced yet. We do know however that the game’s events are set before Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune!

Key Features of Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Naughty Dog’s Uncharted: Golden Abyss based on news and announcements made so far.

Developers Sony Bend have stated they were keen to make sure the game feels familiar to Uncharted fans, but that it will make use of the PS Vita’s extra features such as the touch screen and panel, as well as the sixaxis function.

The gameplay is a mix of shooting and plat-forming elements, including in-depth puzzles which must be solved using various clues from Drake’s personal journal. A new feature is the ability to use a camera and photographs to identify certain locales. Exploration and puzzles are said to be a major focus of the game, as opposed to gunplay.
