Uncharted: Eye of Indra - First Episode on PSN Today
Naughty Dog's Lead Game Designer Neil Druckmann has revealed that the first episode of Uncharted: Eye of Indra is hitting PSN today.
To quote: I hope everyone's digging UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves. It's awesome that so many of you are already playing through the single player campaign for the second time, or even multiple times.
For all of you wanting more Nathan Drake, you're in luck - hitting the PSN today is UNCHARTED: Eye of Indra - a four episode Motion Comic - it's an original prequel story to UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune. We've been working on this baby for the past year and it's been brutal not being able to talk about it.
For those unfamiliar with them, a Motion Comic is essentially an animated comic book - you watch it like a movie. Characters move, there's some 3D effects, and cool panel transitions.
Expect some of your favorite characters and voice-actors from the UNCHARTED universe to show up throughout the story. Other than Nolan North reprising his role as Nathan Drake, I can't announce who else shows up in the story as that'll spoil some of the fun.
We're launching the first episode for free to whet your appetite and the rest of the episodes will come out in November. Be on the lookout for an upcoming announcement about an awesome pack-in that we'll include with future episodes.
Alright, enough out of me, go download the first episode and see what Drake was up to a few months before he used Elena to raise the coffin of Sir Francis Drake.
I watched the Uncharted: Eye Of Indra motion comic yesterday in amazement of just how excellent it is, and what makes it even better is that it must be a series of motion comics, as it says to be continued at the end of that episode.
I definitely believe that the series of Uncharted: Eye Of Indra motion comics should have been unlockables in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, in which you would unlock a particular episode for progressing so far into the game or achieving something in particular.
