Do You Think This Rickety Bridge Will Hold Nathan Drake?

Yes? No? Find out by watching this trailer for Uncharted: Golden Abyss.


While Naughty Dog is working on Uncharted 3, Uncharted: Golden Abyss is being made by Sony Bend. This game takes place before the events of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (the first game in the series) and utilizes the PlayStation Vita’s touch screen for climbing. You can swipe a path for Nathan Drake to climb across. The game also has gyroscopic controls for a camera mini-game shown at E3, but not in this video. And for fans of the series, Sony Bend kept the original controls.

  • Wow a new female character to go along with Drake, she is a good match. This also seems like another awesome title. Day 1 for this most definitely. I hope it has some additional mode along with story, cant see how I can rack up over 300 hours of playtime in this game like I did with Uncharted 2 though.

  • Christian Wright

    this game alone justifies a vita purchase for me. now i need kingdom hearts for a 3DS purchase which i also hope is kh-themed. (~ ̄▽ ̄)~ maybe a bundle….yeah right (¬▂¬) we never got that badass zelda one

    • Surely you mean to hope that that list of titles in development for the PS Vita comes to fruition and we see a Kingdom Hearts for the PS Vita…

  • Yu_TheKing

    Definitely hoping this is a launch title. Can’t wait to see what other features they have in mind for this; hopefully it will have me hooked like the Uncharted 3 Beta

    • I was sure Uncharted Golden Abyss has been and was and is consistently reaffirmed as a launch title. Oh and Uncharted 3 cant come soon enough, I cant wait to play more of the multiplayer co-op, that mode is teh hotness.


  • Shinji Kazuya

    Dammit! Why must you give me a reason ta get a Vita at launch?! WHY???!!!

  • I”m glad it is a prequel, it makes the entry level simple for me who doesn’t have a PS3.

  • When has a rickety bridge ever held?

  • cmurph666

    Uncharted: The Return of Eddy Raja~!!

  • Kris

    As long as Amy Hennig’s involved, I’m interested!

  • IB2004

    Didn’t think this would get alot praise cuz alot of gamers in my area hate prequels and sees them unneccesary

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Drake can never catch a break. I swear his back must look like a worn pin cushion, cuz there is always someone backstabbing him at some point. Anyway, look like another hit game!

  • Marissa Chase, huh? Meh, she’s no Chloe:) She does bare a striking resemblance to how Elena looked BEFORE they changed her design though…

    At any rate, this is pretty cool. Especially for Sony Bend, whose last game – Resistance PSP – just didn’t really show off that they had the stuff to do a game like Uncharted justice. Although I suppose they COULD be recycling a ton of assets from Naughty Dog’s first two games. It would be interesting to compare the Drake models from Golden Abyss and Drake’s Fortune to see if they’re the same. Still, even if they are, it’s impressive that a handheld could do that.

    Trailer looks a bit dark and muddy to me but hopefully it’s only the video.

  • zweii

    Its says “This video is private.”


  • PrinceHeir

    hmm im interested on how this game takes place in the UC universe???

    is it between Uncharted 1 to Uncharted 2 or Uncharted 2 to Uncharted 3???

    he looks like the one in Uncharted 2 so im guessing this take place before Uncharted 3(he looks very different in that game)

    sadly i won’t be buying a Vita or a 3DS 2-3 years after it’s release. gotta play some of my huge backlog games consisting of PS1, PS2, PS3, Nintendo Wii, Gamcube and soon to be DSi(yes just the DSi no 3DS for now)

    same can be said for PS4 and Wii U :P

    • Fans believe it takes place before Uncharted 1, I was under the impression that it was mentioned that it doesnt directly lead into the events of any game though. 

      • PrinceHeir

        soo basically a what if  it happen Uncharted game??? huh :P
