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.

The Uncharted movie has a new screenwriter

Sony taps The Grey and A-Team scribe Joe Carnahan.

The Uncharted movie now has a new screenwriter, so we know it's still in development - even if it's sounding unlikely that it will hit its previously reported June 2017 release.

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.

Uncharted: Fight for Fortune review

Gaming's favourite chancer gets carded.

Fight for Fortune is the Vita's Uncharted card battling game. Every one of the series' characters, from Drake to Francis Drake to Draza, battles over treasure using tropes from the series ("CAVE IN!", "Sully's Sea Plane"), all in card form. How does this end up? Well, (full warning, this review's about to peak) it's a little thin.

I'll start by telling you how it works, though don't expect anything familiar. I'm about to slap you upside the head with some very obtuse card mechanics, so make sure your tongue isn't resting between your teeth. Maybe close your mouth entirely.

You and your (most likely AI) opponent are dealt a range of 12 character cards, divided into Heroes, Villains and Mercenaries. You're going to be playing these cards into your choice of five slots, with the aim of using them to chisel your nebulous opponent down to zero health.

$5 card game Uncharted: Fight for Fortune announced

Gives you something to do with your Golden Abyss artifacts.

Vita card game Uncharted: Fight For Fortune has been announced proper on the PlayStation blog. It's due out 4th December for $5. The Euro date and price are TBC (uh oh).

Fight For Fortune works with Vita Uncharted game Golden Abyss as well as standalone. Basically you build a deck of cards and use those to battle opponents, taking turns. It's billed as an action-adventure game on the blog, but err I don't see any action-adventure in the video.

As you go, you earn more cards and power them up by collecting artefacts in Golden Abyss. A patch will retroactively rewarded you for those you've already collected.
