To quote: Do you know what Nathan Drake is most afraid of? How about why, when, and where he first met Elena Fisher?
Uncover these truths and much more via Drake's first two critically acclaimed PS3 adventures when they arrive as digital downloads on the PlayStation Store.
UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune and UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition will land on the PlayStation Store in the downloadable PS3 game section on June 26th.
In UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune, a 400-year-old clue in the coffin of explorer Sir Francis Drake leads Nathan Drake on a wild adventure to a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Here Drake hunts for the fabled treasure of El Dorado. Learn the backstory of the colorful cast of UNCHARTED characters and the ancient secrets El Dorado hides.
UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition is the winner of over 200 Game of the Year awards, and one of the most highly acclaimed video games of all time. In this sequel, Drake is drawn back into the treacherous world of thieves and treasure-seekers.
A mystery artifact propels him to undertake an expedition to the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala where he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse against a fugitive war criminal. Pushed to his limits, Drake is forced to risk everything.
Soon you can have two of Drake's most epic adventures waiting on your PS3's XMB, available at the tap of a button! Look for them on PlayStation Store June 26th.
