Uncharted Novel, Comic Book Series In The Works

Nate and Sully on the run.

Sony has today announced plans for an Uncharted novel and six-part comic book series, exploring two perilous new adventures with one of modern gaming’s most iconic protagonists, Nathan Drake. The novel, titled Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth, will be penned by American author Christopher Golden who has lent his talent to a number of book tie-ins for series such as Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Daredevil, Hellboy, and the X-Men. The book will be made available on October 4th; both Amazon and Play have priced The Fourth Labyrinth at £4.49 a copy.

In the ancient world there was a myth about a king, a treasure, and a hellish labyrinth. Now the doors to that hell are open once again.

Nathan Drake, treasure hunter and risk taker, has been called to New York City by the man who taught him everything about the “antiquities acquisition business.” Victor Sullivan needs Drake’s help. Sully’s old friend, a world-famous archaeologist, has just been found murdered in Manhattan. Dodging assassins, Drake, Sully, and the dead man’s daughter, Jada Hzujak, race from New York to underground excavations in Egypt and Greece. Their goal: to unravel an ancient myth of alchemy, look for three long-lost labyrinths, and find the astonishing discovery that got Jada’s father killed. It appears that a fourth labyrinth was built in another land and another culture—and within it lies a key to unmatched wealth and power. An army of terrifying lost warriors guards this underground maze. So does a monster. And what lies beyond—if Drake can live long enough to reach it—is both a treasure and a poison, a paradise and a hell.

From November 30th, DC will be launching the comic series, written by Joshua Williamson with pencils from Sergio Sandoval. Set before Among Thieves and Drake’s Deception, the six-part saga will take Drake and companions to very centre of the Earth.

    Don’t like reading that much – pictures are better, so am more interested in the Comic series. Also, although more and more people seem to me making and reading the game-novel crossovers, i think the comic work better..

    Bothered. Franchises spilling over into comics and novels are not up to scratch I find.

    I’ve been getting into game novelisations lately so I’ll be getting this one for sure. I just finished the Bioshock: Rapture book last week and was pretty impressed!

    Very rarely would i be interested in this type of thing.

    I’m actually quite excited about the comic.

    As much as i love the Uncharted games this is not something i would be interested in. Seems a bit contrived just to cash in on the IP.

    The whole point of Uncharted is to solve puzzles etc and follow the story line. Not interested in the comic.

    I’m up for anything Uncharted related so I’ll definitely be buying both book and comics.

    I generally don’t bother with this kind of thing, but this has really piqued my interest.
