Coming Soon: UNCHARTED: The Fourth Labyrinth and UNCHARTED from DC Comics

Like UNCHARTED

If you’re like me, you’re literally crawling out of your skin with anticipation to “uncover the truth” with Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan when UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception arrives on 11-1-11.

Helping to make the launch of our favorite game series all the sweeter, and further expanding the lore of Drake’s travels, be sure to visit your favorite local book and comic stores to reserve these two outstanding adventures in print entertainment for Uncharted!

UNCHARTED: The Fourth Labyrinth novel

First up, and on sale October 4th, 2011 is UNCHARTED: The Fourth Labyrinth, written by author Christopher Golden who recently shared with us:

“I had a blast writing UNCHARTED: The Fourth Labyrinth. Mystery, suspense, mythology, pulp action, sinister plots, beautiful women, and treasure — when it comes to the world of Nathan Drake, what’s not to love?”

For those of you clamoring to learn more about the adventure in store for Nathan Drake, we’ll share with you this excerpt from the back cover of the book:

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.

UNCHARTED: The Fourth Labyrinth comic by DC Comics

Up next, and on sale November 30th, 2011 is a new six-issue UNCHARTED comic book series by DC Comics. The comics are being written by Joshua Williamson with pencils by Sergio Sandoval and covers by Tony Harris (not to mention a variant cover for Issue #1 by fan favorite Adam Hughes). DC’s SVP of Digital of DC Entertainment, Hank Kanalz, had this to say about the upcoming series:

“We’re creating a hi-octane, adventure comic that adds to the official canon of the Uncharted franchise. The book will be entertaining for both fans of the game, and new fans who read the comic and then want to play the game.”

As far as timeline, the comic book series takes place before both UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception and UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and will find Nathan Drake discovering that the legendary Amber Room was hidden by another great explorer, Sir Richard Byrd, where legend has it that many, many years ago, Byrd hid the Amber Room in the fabled Agartha (a legendary city that is said to reside in the earth’s core, often referred to as “The Hollow Earth”). Drake competes with a new adversary to find clues that will lead them on a journey to the center of the Earth — and a breathtaking new adventure.

The UNCHARTED video game franchise continues to expand into a globally recognized entertainment brand that resonates with fans across a broad spectrum. The demand for new and exciting ways for fans to remain steeped in the adventurous world of UNCHARTED, even when away from their gaming console, has generated an entire slew of goodies that touches upon almost every facet of entertainment, pop culture, and collectible! From UNCHARTED video games, action figures, clothing, statues, posters, gaming accessories, comic books and novels; for many of us, our holiday wish list can be completed by sending our loved ones a link to this blog post!

I can’t wait to read these both these stories, folks — hit me up if you feel the same! I’ll be sure to answer as many questions as I can in the comments.

Hell… A realm and theme we simply don’t see enough of in games these days. Forget military games, bring back the horror and mystery of other realms that actually encourage imagination I say (i.e. doom, quake, and now uncharted it seems). :P
