I received a nice surprise in the post today:
It’s a promotional pack for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune entitled The Chronicles of Sir Francis Drake. It came in what I first thought was a book but when I opened it up it only had a couple of pages about Sir Francis Drake.
When I looked a bit further, it was hollowed out and in it was what you see in the image above which are a map, a picture (not sure of what ), a page from Nathan Drake’s diary and a booklet about Uncharted.
Pretty cool, eh?
As you probably know, PAL PS3 owners couldn’t play the Uncharted demo that is on the NA PS Store, due to a bug.
Strangely, I was met with the black screen of doom when I tried the demo, not the “insert disc’ message. If you still want to try the demo before the game’s PAL launch then we still have 2 weeks to wait:
Sony Europe has confirmed that a playable demo of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, released on the US PSN Store yesterday, will hit UK PS3s on November 22.
I’m going to give the demo a miss now. I’m buying the game regardless, so when I play it, everything will be new and I won’t end up thinking “I’ve already done this on the demo”, like I did with R&C ToD.
The animation in this game is very natural and lifelike. It’s quite amazing. The motion capture seems better than Heavenly Sword as well. Even the environments look very lush and alive. There are tons of things to unlock as well to keep you playing again and again. I can’t wait to play the demo this Thursday!
On the official PlayStation blog, Game Director Amy Hennig announced that a demo of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune will hit the NA PSN next Thursday (Nov 8th).
C&VG seem to think 4 levels will be available to explore. I hope that isn’t the case as I’d prefer not to have played through a decent sized portion of the game before I bought it.
If it is 4 levels then I will give the demo a miss. I want to experience things properly in the full game rather than have to wade through 4 levels I’ve already played to death via a demo.
That’s the problem with the web being such a big part of people’s lives today. So much info is revealed via videos, images and articles that by the time you get round to playing the actual game, there’s a good chance you’ve seen almost everything a game has to offer.
