Uncharted: Drake's Fortune News

Uncharted film taps new director

Shawn Levy of Night at the Museum and Real Steel to helm.

The Uncharted movie has found a new director with Shawn Levy, the man who helmed both Night At The Museum films, Date Night, and Real Steel.

Uncharted remasters to be available individually next month

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection wonderfully remastered Naughty Dog's groundbreaking treasure-hunting adventure trilogy (back when it was still a trilogy), but it was rather costly if you were only interested in one or two of the collected titles. That won't be a problem come 16th November in Europe as Sony will start selling each remastered entry a la carte.

What we don't know is the price point. Chances are it will still be a lot cheaper to purchase the Nathan Drake Collection, especially as the anthology has come down in price since its release last October. Right now several sellers on Amazon UK are charging £30 or less for it.

Still, the individual titles might be worth it if you just want to play one of the games. But which one? Uncharted 2 is the fan-favourite, but our Oli Welsh seemed particularly fond of Uncharted 3 upon reassessing the series, while there are the rare holdouts who still favour the original adventure above all.

The Uncharted movie gets a June 2016 release date

The Uncharted film will be released on 10th June, 2016, the Hollywood Reporter has announced.

We still don't know who's going to play Nathan Drake, but King of Kong and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is helming the project. Previously American Hustle and Three Kings director David O Russell was going to direct the film with Mark Wahlberg in the starring role, but that was cancelled when The Illusionist director Neil Burger stepped in. Of course, that too didn't stick.

Last we checked, Safe House and Stolen scribe David Guggenheim was set to pen the film.

Worth considering if you have old HDTV.

Sony has confirmed to Eurogamer what some of you have been arguing about in our forum - that the European version of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune doesn't support 1080i resolution after all.

Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells has just completed a live interview with you about Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and a host of other things - including confirmation that he would like to do a Jak game for PS3 and his views on next-gen console development and the recent Manhunt 2 fiasco.

Uncharted demo unlocked

Moaning works!

Naughty Dog has very kindly fixed the problem that stopped us all playing the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune demo on the US PlayStation Store, so now we can all use our pretend accounts to grab it.

US Uncharted demo locked

No joy for PAL gamers.

Cream of the Croft.

If you checked out Ellie's recent in-depth look at Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, you'll know that it's one of the more promising prospects on the exclusive-craving PS3 this Chrimbo.

Despite fairly obvious similarities to 'er with the big 'uns, the creator of Crash and Jak insists our chiselled hero Nathan Drake is much more than a brainless Larry Cruft knock-off. You can now judge for yourselves in three tasty gameplay vignettes we've just whacked up on Eurogamer TV.

Videos one and two show off combat - the first has Drake sploshing around in an underground, well, tomb, rapidly switching between weapons, going hand-to-hand, and cobbing grenades at nasty types. The second heads outside and into ruins for more happy slapping. Finally, the third clip offers a taster of the puzzle-solving you'll encounter in the course of your grave-robbing escapades.

Will have pirates, too. Yarr.

We mentioned recently that a modeller had lifted the lid on Naughty Dog's PS3 project, referring to it as "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" in his online portfolio.

That information, which miraculously disappeared from the internet, has been confirmed by Game Informer in preparation for its April cover story, which claims to: "take the wraps off Naughty Dog's next creation - Uncharted: Drake's Fortune".

Sony wasn't available to comment on this recent development, though we expect little more response than US sites received before: "We do not comment on rumors or speculation. No official announcement has been made."
