Uncharted: Golden Abyss Dev. Interview

One of the games talked about yesterday as part of the NGP blowout was Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Unfortunately, outside of the new name, not much info was given.

Luckily, one of the developers behind Uncharted: Golden Abyss dropped by the EU PlayStation Blog shortly after all the announcements, to hand out a few of the details previously unknown.


To make sure you don’t miss anything, you can check out the full video interview below but we’ll give you a couple of the bigger announcements first.

For starters, Golden Abyss takes place in Central America and will include a brand new character to go along with the series’ staples, Drake and Sully. The story is actually meant to be somewhat of a prequel but it doesn’t directly tie in to the main Uncharted story in any way.

Last, Bend Studio is making it very clear that this is not a half-hearted effort. All the voice actors from the main series are doing the voices in Golden Abyss and overall there are over 3,000 character animations in this game. While they didn’t mention exactly how long it will be, they certainly made it sound like it should rival its console counterparts as far as single-player content goes.

We also included a few new screenshots at the bottom of the post, in case you missed them earlier.

  1. Only game I wanted to come out on NGP for me to get it and now its a release title. I can see me in a queue by the end of this year :D. May also get wipeout HD as one of the free games since its cross compatible with the ngp one.

  2. Looks ace!

  3. This does look very well polished but the NGP is going to need a few games like this at launch to justify a £200+ price tag (not saying it will cost that much, just if)

  4. I saw this earlier, really want this, although Wipeout 2048 has just overtaken it with the announcement of cross-platform multiplayer.
    I’ll definitely be getting both, hopefully on launch day too.
    Sound Shapes could be up there too with more info…

    Oh God, I don’t know where I’m going to get the money from…

    • You could always work part time as a man wh*re

      • Exactly, cue loads of male giggolos :P

      • Haha.
        I’m a student- I already try that for free! :P

  5. Still reeling from how good this looks. Anticipating first footage/trailer at this year’s E3 which will hopefully outline the story and characters.

  6. I’m really looking forward to this game which is the biggest reason for me to actually get the NGP/Vita.

  7. same here I will get the NGP just for this. is that. bad?

  8. In the second and third screenshots drake looks like he has been pulled from the PS3 verison, impressive indeed. Although the scenery isn’t up to the standard of the characters.
