Is this coming out in the U.S?

Yep.

That's what i actually want to know. It says PSN, XBL so i assume it will and seeing that it is in English, i don't see why it wouldn't. As much as a rip-off it is, i will most likely play it and maybe even buy it (wwhen it's discounted). Yeah i know it could end up being complete crap, but I will give them a chance.

No reason not to play it. I think too many gamers try to bring politics into gaming. I'll play anything that looks like it could be fun. Glad to see other like minded gamers are out there.

Its interesting how many people point out that this is an Uncharted ripoff, yet nobody points out that Uncharted is a Tomb Raider/Indiana Jones ripoff.

@Wenis

Oh come off it. Nobody cares if Drake is a treasure hunter with a smart mouth and a knack for getting the ladies. Being a treasure hunter doesn't make Uncharted a TR rip-off and the personality doesn't make him a IJ rip-off.

His shooting/gameplay mechanics are still a hundred times better than any tomb raider game, and his slight resemblance to a movie character doesn't affect anything.

If it weren't a Playstation game, I'm sure you would give such a stink. This "Unearthed" game is a rip off from the nearly identical character roles, identical gameplay concept, and ridiculously similar name to steal some brand recognition.

Im Arabic and i meet the dev of this game and i can tell u.. his game way difference than Uncharted.. his game r puzzle game in fact the shooting in most part is for multiplayer.
Quagmire  +   1312d ago
Its apparant with the disagrees that people are too close minded to try anything new, despite having similarities to games they enjoy.

I for one will try and support this game, after all its fairly uncommon for Arabians to develop games, and this seems like a great opportunity to do so.

Quite sad really.
subtenko  +   1312d ago
So they finally spoke about it...LOL go on youtube and you can see the videos have more dislikes than like, and people are callin it out in the comments. I think even with what the devs said, they gave kinda a bad impression to alot of people.

A good point someone posted-

"If it's supposed to be different, why did you call it Unearthed with simmilar logo & choose a Drake look-a-like and simmilar cast? " - VonBraun..

The similarities arent just your usually game similarity's... they're more-so than the average ones found in a few games.

Agree or Disagree if you Agree
Heartnet  +   1311d ago
HE clearly states in the Article that Unearthed means so Arabic phrase haha.. wait till you actually play it start saying its a rip off..

But then again theres no point arguing with some1 whose already made up there mind no matter what changes :)
manman6  +   1313d ago
No matter how much they try, their game will be compared to Uncharted and Tomb Raider.
-Alpha  +   1312d ago
Which is a good thing for them since it has gained them a lot of publicity.

It's in their hands to make a worthwhile game, and that's what people will be most interested in. You never know how it could turn out and I'd rather give this a go than another shooter

And why is that so different than top games that are being released now.

Every time Gears or Forza gets mentioned you always here Uncharted or Grand Tourismo being brought up and vise-versa.
HeavenlySnipes  +   1312d ago
The top
games you mentioned are only brought up by fanboys because they are the best games in the genre for each platform. None are clones of another game, whereas Unearthed looks to be a Uncharted clone in name and character choice, also in plot.
DiffusionE  +   1312d ago
The multiplayer footage was funny as hell.
Brownghost  +   1312d ago
its great for arabic publishers to try something new like game developing and i support them
Quagmire  +   1312d ago
Damn, why the disagrees? Racism most likely...
Brownghost  +   1312d ago
Cause I'm Arabic and people act like uncharted is a pure ip but it stole much from tomb raider
Lazy_Sunday  +   1312d ago
No, because while Uncharted may seem to borrow from Tomb Raider, Uncharted is a fresh and brilliant IP because of it's cinematic qualities and personalities in single player--and that makes Tomb Raider look like shit.
You could also say that Uncharted stole from Indiana Jones, Gears of War and National Treasure, but then again, that's a lot of things to steal from, and they're all pretty different. You might want to say it was inspired by those things to make a unique game, because that's what it was. But what these devs are doing is different.

Don't even think that these disagrees are out of a racist mindset. These disagrees are because these devs are flat out stealing a formula and making it look bad. To support these devs is to support unoriginality, the least they could do is borrow from multiple things and improve upon those elements, but instead they steal from one single game to make money. This is not something we should support in this industry.

Surprised nobody's hating on NearSpace Orbit VanGuard Alliance (NOVA 1 and 2 on iPhone and iPad) for ripping the shit out of Halo though. Or Gameloft for that matter. Though, devs should be making quality mobile ports for just this reason.
THC CELL  +   1312d ago
This game will be different but not better, no game apart from maybe tomb raider remake will be as good as uncharted series
Cloudberry  +   1312d ago
It reminds me of crossing between Prince Of Persia, Uncharted, and Tomb Raider.
Chaostar  +   1312d ago
This game is a joke, just another 'popular for being crap' curiosity, like that Friday song. Will the comedy value be worth buying this for?
admiralthrawn87  +   1312d ago
yeah the difference being this one sucks and uncharted is awesome
Harelgur  +   1312d ago
GOTY right there
TheGamingArt  +   1312d ago
Yea... it's different because it's worse then bargain bin material
Michael-Jackson  +   1312d ago
Then why does the pic I see right now scream Chloe, Drake and Sully?

It's funny when asked in the interview:
'What’s the inspiration? Was Uncharted a large part of it?"

and they deliberately dodged the question.

If it's supposed to be different, why did you call it Unearthed with simmilar logo & choose a Drake look-a-like and simmilar cast?
Phantom-Deutschland  +   1312d ago
lack of imagination......cheap hipe.....what else?
Phantom-Deutschland  +   1312d ago
this game already fails in every way.
look at the characters....damn thats shAit!
Rashonality  +   1312d ago
its good to see people trying, but they should have started with a less "ambitious" project and with an original idea.
i mean its not like the market have shortage of shooters not to mention good one.
this project clearly doesn't have good budget nor extremely talented people, they should have started with an easier genre something like point and click or a hybrid or even something completely new and atmospheric, something with really good story and characters, stuff that overshadows the fact that they're using pre-historic technologies.

in other words they should have focused on the other aspects of the game so they can prove that the only thing that is holding them back their technologies they're using and their budget.

"We're not inspired by Uncharted"
Just look at the name of the game...
Possible Sequel:
Unearthed 2: Among Arabs
Pikajew  +   1311d ago
Game of the year!
StifflerK  +   1311d ago
They definitely ripped off Uncharted with the basics, you'd have to be blind not to see it.

That said , for an PSN/XBL game, it doesn't look all that bad.
