A truly great book is hard to find. Once you find one, it may lead you on some wild adventures. A good strategy for those adventures is even harder to find, so we teamed up with Piggyback to give you some help. Beautifully designed and thoughtfully written, the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Complete Official Guide will be a secret weapon in your gameplay strategy, giving you a deeper understanding of the game and adding to your overall experience. The standard edition is available with a complete game walkthrough, hi-res maps, in-depth extras, and a full 64 pages on the multiplayer mode alone. The hardbound collector’s edition is a massive 272 pages with an exclusive 16-page Naughty Dog Cast Gallery, access to the Piggyback in-game multiplayer emblem, and a free CD with ten tracks from the official UNCHARTED 3 music score. The guides are designed to be spoiler controlled, so you can read them with peace of mind as you embark with Nathan Drake in his quest to uncover the truth.
The official guide is available now. If you’d like to check out what’s included in the guide before you order, you can visit the Piggyback website and check out a free downloadable 24-page PDF preview.

Believe it or not we’re now in the final week of the Subway Taste for Adventure, UNCHARTED 3’s full competitive Multiplayer experience! Not only are we in the single digits as we countdown the days until the release of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception, but we also recently revealed our launch trailer and the final UNCHARTED 3 TV Spot. If you haven’t watched those be sure to check them out!
We hope you’ve found your time online playing the Uncharted 3 full competitive multiplayer experience enjoyable and wanted to share a video that includes hints on how to effectively use melee, cover, evasion, aiming, and other skills while playing multiplayer. Moves like executing stealth kills and doing an edge grab are great ways to earn medals and achieve a medal kickback quickly. You’ll learn about this and much more as Robert Cogburn returns to talk about the Way of the Iron Fist (or how to use melee and other techniques to your advantage in multiplayer). Check out what he had to say to the PlayStation.Blog in this video:
Nathan Drake’s adventures are never easy: There’s danger around every corner! As you may remember from our casting call, Spike TV developed a blockbuster reality competition that brings that action to life in the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Race to the Ring TV special that airs on Spike TV Monday, October 31st at 11:30pm Pacific Time (10:30pm Central).
We were stoked to hear from so many wannabe Drakes out there. After we sorted through the mountain of die-hard UNCHARTED fans that entered, we chose five lucky contestants — all with very different backgrounds — to participate in a competition worthy of an UNCHARTED adventure. The competition will test the limits of their endurance, strength, accuracy, and agility while pushing their knowledge of Drake’s adventures to the extreme. For a taste of the action, check out our preview video for the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Race to the Ring Special above.
Here in week three of the Subway Taste for Adventure UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer experience, we’re hitting our full stride. We’ve played in some great matches, seen fantastic emblems and have been wowed by colorful, custom character designs. There are many ways to make the UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer experience uniquely your own and we’re thrilled every time there’s an “Oh snap!” taunt thrown up just for fun.
Taunting, customizing your characters, and creating your emblem are just a small portion of what you can do to create your own multiplayer experience. The PlayStation.Blog caught up with Game Designer Robert Cogburn to acquire some in-depth information about how you can play, create and share UNCHARTED 3’s multiplayer experience. Learn about some of the other cool stuff you can do in-game in the video here.
Last night at five select AMC Theaters from coast-to-coast and now here online we are stoked to premiere the launch trailer for UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. Launch?
