Over on the PlayStation Blog, Lead Game Designer Neil Druckmann of Naughty Dog posted that Uncharted: Eye of Indra is now up and ready for download.
Episode One of the “Motion Comic” is being given away for free in order to “whet your appetite.” Then, in November, you’ll have to pay for the rest of the goods – pricing has yet to be revealed.
Uncharted: Eye of Indra actually serves as a prequel to the events of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Below you’ll find the blog posting in its entirety.
UNCHARTED: Eye of Indra – First Episode on PSN Today
Posted by Neil Druckmann // Lead Game Designer, Naughty Dog
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.
