UNCHARTED 3 Complete Official Piggyback Guide Out Now, Drake’s Journal Coming Soon

Eric Monacelli's Avatar Posted by Community Strategist, Naughty Dog


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.

Nolan North, the voice of Nathan Drake himself, also chronicles the adventure of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception in a brand new book that goes behind the scenes of the making of Uncharted 3. The 128-page Drake’s Journal, which will be available shortly after the game launches on 11.1.11, provides an exclusive, in-depth look at life in a motion cap suit, bringing to life the outstanding performances of all of our fantastic cast members. So if you’re curious about how a video game character comes to life, there is no better authority than the actors themselves and the stories you’ll read in Drake’s Journal.

Love the Drake’s Journal idea. I’m definitely getting that. Passing on the strategy guide, as I like figuring ou t things for myself however. Great idea with Drake’s Journal, cannot wait for that!

I refrained from watching Uncharted 3 videos, managed to not play the beta, and couldn’t participate in the Subway multiplayer (Canadian); but I will be all over the game tomorrow at 10AM sharp from my local Future Shop! Collector’s Edition (with SteelBook) here I come!

Any idea whether the Hardcover one has Treasure Locations? If it does, then I’m definitely buying it.

    Treasure locations are included, yes. But they given in a way so you can avoid them if you don’t want spoilers!

Tremulan777 said:

October 31st, 3:32 pm

@9 I really think so those strategy guides usually cover almost every aspect of the game.

jazzyrider said:

October 31st, 3:33 pm

What are the prices for each? I’m thinking of picking up the collector’s edition since its hardback and comes with a CD!

    The collector’s edition has an MSRP of $29.99 US. You can pre-order Drake’s Journal for $19.96 so order fast because it goes back to it’s MSRP of $24.95 after that. The links are in the last paragraph in the blog post.

preordered my CE strategy guide through amazon for a great deal. only thing that sucks is i can’t get it on the same day as the GOTY for 2011, Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception!

the CE strat guide itself will be a valuable treasure to add to my collection!

Capshot18 said:

October 31st, 3:39 pm

On Amazon, for America, for the Preorder, Hardcover is 18 and paperback is 12.
After the preorder, I think hardcover is 30 and paperback is 20.

full online game mp does not have everything! no subway stuff, no negative boosters , and plenty of stuff missing including clown masks. they can be found in lan though, why is it that?

    Can you drop us a note about this in the forums? Not sure. Please describe it as much as possible there. Thanks! http://forums.naughtydog.com

    Quick note about this, you’ll get all that stuff in online MP as your rank up and progress through the Multiplayer. With LAN a lot of that is already unlocked because the player progression is different.

jazzyrider said:

October 31st, 3:48 pm

Thanks for the Amazon heads up! Gonna preorder it now!

pickupdoctor said:

Uncharted 3 is awesome, I finished the game yesterday. Got it early because of AMC event in LA. Now I am planning on playing it in 3D mode.

Game is spectacular, graphics are superb. Fire, Sand, Water pure magic.

Can’t wait to explore the Multiplayer and new DLC.

I’m working the midnight release of Uncharted 3 at my Best Buy, but here’s the kicker:

I’m going dressed as Drake.

I’m hoping to unbox my own copy of the collector’s edition I pre-ordered so I can wear the ring/belt buckle. I may not have the physique that Nate does, but a valiant effort will be had; half-tuck FTW!

I will be goin to the midnight release at Best Buy in Fairfax, Virginia

Naughty Dog please add more outfits, gloves, shirts, shoes, etc. to buy, I wanna earn a million online and spend all that money on extra stuff

angelspawn77 said:

Going to the midnight release! How much is that Special Edition book? I bought it for God of War 3 and want to for Uncharted 3, but depends on the price, GOW3 CE book was 30$.

Nice! going to gamestop tonight to pick up my copy with my exclusive perk! Sucks though that I didn’t pre order the collectors edition, but I still will love Uncharted 3

this might be a super nub question but what is a online pass

    Online pass is the same as PSN pass. You’ll get the voucher code in your retail copy of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

    No plans for that as of yet but keep checking back!

Im bummed out since I wasnt able to get into NYC today (darn snow that killed the trains in NJ to NY) for the midnight launch at the Sony store even though I already have the game preordered at game stop. I really wanted to get that exclusive DLC!

Shinra_Soilder said:

October 31st, 6:08 pm

Nice. I might consider getting the CE strategy guide if only to get that CD. I just love the music of Uncharted. I will most likely get Drake’s Journal since I already got the Forth Labyrinth the week it was released.
Question: Any speculation on when the soundtrack for Uncharted 3 will be released?

    Be sure to check back here this week for more news on that!

D-Squad3 said:

October 31st, 6:19 pm

Can you please tell me why that cover for Drake’s Journal isn’t the cover for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception? It looks so much better and stays in the same feel of the Uncharted 1 and 2 Box Art. I really hope the cover for Uncharted 3 will have a reversable cover.

D-Squad3 said:

October 31st, 6:19 pm

Also, that CD should’ve came with the Uncharted 3 Collector’s Edition, I’d rather have the soundtracks on a CD than a belt buckle.

GameOver1994 said:

October 31st, 6:32 pm

Can’t wait to get my Uncharted 3:Collector’s Edition copy tonight! :D
So stoked!!! Thank you, Naughty Dog! I can’t wait to see all the extra content you didn’t add to the Subway Promo(to prevent spoilers of the whole MP.), Its going to be awesome!

P.S.-Happy Halloween! :P

angelspawn77 said:

October 31st, 7:06 pm

Thanks for the reply and oh man, I want it so bad, 100$ on the CE for Uncharted 3, then next week 80$ on the MGS HD Collection CE. That is so much money, but that guide is so awesome. I’ll think about it, hopefully its available after launch and they don’t go fast. I’ll buy it next week for sure if they don’t sell out.

Motherboop said:

October 31st, 7:21 pm

Just finalized my pre-order at GameStop, and picked up the Collectors Edition guide while I was at it! Can’t take it with me until midnight though :( Just 1 hr 40 min until it’s game time, and I’m off work for 3 days to knock it out!

race2winnet said:

October 31st, 7:44 pm

So frustrated that my local Game Stop decided NOT to do a midnight release! The reason? They feared for their safety being open at midnight on Halloween! Seriously.

xBuTcHeRx said:

I’m getting the game midnight! Going to the Best Buy at West Hollywood! :D

Why does Elena look like a cross-dressing Legolas in U3? Did she visit a butcher of a cosmetic surgeon since U2?

just picked up my copy from gamestop about to play this beast of a game

eilegz said:

October 31st, 10:18 pm

as much as i like uncharted 3, the current subway beta, i think that the addition of online pass its a step back from uncharted 2….

The fact that the game now its cripple to only work for 5 devices tied to my psn account seems a very big limitation for me and it brings a detrimental experience of what sony offered to its customers…

yesimasian2 said:

October 31st, 10:30 pm

can’t wait to get my hands on the guide … one of my favorite guides ever is Piggyback’s MGS4 … no one does it better … also, anyone else agree that Piggyback has absolutely one the most clever logos out there?

pandacastro said:

Will both books be available in stores?

Piggyback quite possibly makes the best guides ever. I really hope that as time passes they begin to replace BradyGames guides. The difference in quality is rather significant.
