Naughty Dog and Sony Computer Entertainment have released the first trailer for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves which you can check out at the bottom of this article.
The trailer has already been confirmed by Naughty Dog to be 100% rendered by the in-game engine. In other words, the level of visuals seen in this trailer should be on par with what you’ll see playing the actual game.
This first teaser trailer depicts Nathan Drake slogging through the snow and discovering some sort of artifact. The full-blown trailer is set to premiere exclusively during the 2008 Video Game Awards. That is scheduled for Sunday, December 14 at 9PM on Spike.
Around the same as Spike reveals the first full trailer, Game Informer will release their January issue with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves featured on the cover. Early details revealed in teaser text promise the sequel revolves around the 13th century explorer Marco Polo and his voyages. New gameplay features will include a free-form climbing mechanic and stealth gameplay.
Drake’s Fortune is considered by many to be the heir to the adventure archaeologist crown with Tomb Raider losing some of its appeal. Drake’s Fortune set the bar high, but we have the utmost confidence Among Thieves will take the series to new heights… literally.
