Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Moves Closer to Gold

Hello again! The countdown is on and we are only two weeks away from a Gold Master. We’re down to the point where every minute matters. The QA departments are working around the clock (and around the globe … in Europe and Japan) looking for any last bugs that we need to get cleaned up before we can ship.

Things are hectic around our studio as we’re trying to juggle several tasks at once. Not only are we trying to wrap up production on the game, but we’re also working frantically on helping with the package design and the strategy guide as well. We’ve also scheduled one last impromptu focus test this weekend in our office so that we can check to make sure that any of the last minute tweaks we’ve made to certain aspects of the game haven’t thrown off any of the previous game balance tuning that we’ve done.

Richard Lemarchand was up North in the Bay Area doing a whirlwind media tour on Thursday and Friday of last week. He stopped by the offices of many magazines and websites to show off the latest build of the game and to give some last minute updates before we send off the final disc for review. Be sure to keep an eye out for coverage and gameplay footage online. This preview from IGN is one of the first I’ve spotted.

We’re also preparing to create another trailer to be released in the coming weeks. Taylor Kurosaki, our video editor, is working on selecting the music to use in the next one and planning out the flow and the structure to tease the story just enough without giving too much away.

The final mixes of sound, music and dialog are all being added to our cinematics and it’s really coming together nicely. We’re also getting back all of our localized assets so that we can ship Uncharted simultaneously around the world in 13 languages!

For more information, be sure to visit the official game Web site.

@ 200 Blueangel – Hey I know that you love that boxart. I think its pretty cool but in no way is it cooler than the other one that #188 DarKaoz showed us on here. Another thing that’s incorrect about the one that you found is that the girls hair is brown and that was the early concept for her. They changed awhile ago to a dirty blondish.

@ Evan Wells – I hope that you are still coming on here to check our posts dude. Or that atleast you tend on making another post on this blog because it would seem that a big debate right now is the box cover for this game. I know that we don’t have any control over which box art you choose but it would be nice to atleast know a direction that you guys are going in. If you do read this could you possible respond on here or with another blog post about the box art cover?

Thanks man,
Lh

@200: Want to know how I can be absolutely positive that what you linked is not the boxart for Uncharted? It doesn’t even have the up-to-date character model for Elena!

That boxart you linked is just lame compared to the other one.

Can or anyone answer whether or not the screen tearing issues will be addressed? Just seen some of the jeep footage, incredible, but the tearing was noticable. Otherwise FANTASTIC WORK.

Hi, there will be a spoken portuguese or at least subtitle?????
Wasn’t this game going to be 60 fps?
But why the change to 30? The special moves (there is special moves??) or the movements of Nathan (that’s his name or is Drake) when you can batle with him are easy to do??
I don’t understand about the ps3’s hardware or gaming developement, but i heard someone saying that the cell put cgs in real gameplay, i mean the player plays movies?
I can’t wait for the demo and the game, cause it’s going to be the best game for a long time in very aspects. Wonderful game, wonderful job Naughty dog!!!!
The game will support 480i??

@ everyone – I went onto the offical Uncharted website and found that the “explore” option is now available. My question for you guys is how do you get through the iron door with the wheel on it? What do you have to type in the machine to make it open? Any help would be awesome!!!

Thanks,
Lh

@ Memo – I don’t know if you just got here but the online deal is nothing big. He said that the replay value of this game will more than make up for it. I suggest you read both blogs

Peace,

HI EVAN !

MAYBE IT IS TOO LATE TO DO THE CHANGES, BUT JUST WANT TO SAY THAT THE LOOK OF THE EXPLOSIONS IN THE BETA DISTRIBUTED TO THE PRESS ( IGN, 1UP ETC. ) IS REALLY BAD. KEEP THE SAME EXPLOSION LOOK AS THE E3 2007 TRAILER !

I REALLY DON’T LIKE THE MUSHROOM TYPE OF EXPLOSION.

THANKS.

[QUOTE] The countdown is on and we are only two weeks away from a Gold Master

That was October 8th and it’s now two weeks from that date :) I think uncharted is going gold any time now? Please let us know if it is ok?

Great game !

Uh, I guess mushroom type of explosion is for some big, sersiously explosion, not for the the small explosion like grenades’ . Most of graphics are great, but I hope the developers do some more work on explosion(especially on the water) and add some more dynamic water reflections.

+ VictorW on October 23rd, 2007 at 4:45 am said:

I meant add some more dynamic water reflections when enemies falls into water or explosion on water surface.
