Uncharted NGP: Set Before Drake’s Fortune but Not a Prequel

Earlier today it was said that Uncharted for Sony’s upcoming portable, NGP/PSP2, will be set between the events of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. However, those initial reports seem to be inaccurate. Arne Meyer , Community Strategist at Naughty Dog, clarified the situation to help Uncharted fans better understand the story placement Uncharted NGP will have in the grand scheme of things.

Explain the definition of prequel to me again? Because this is set before, but it isn't.... BRAIN HURTS!

I think what they mean is it isn't leading into the story of Uncharted 1. IDK much about this game, but i think what they mean is it won't feature many of the characters in 1 or anything like that. It may be set before it but other then the main character they have nothing similar in story.

Not sure though. Most game prequels lead into the original title eventually.

otherwise yeah i have no idea what he means then.

Edited: oh lol just finished reading it, guess i wasn't to off.

"Reason we're making the distinction is that it's not a direct lead-in to the story of Drake's Fortune, which many people would expect if you said "prequel"

It's not a direct lead-in to Drake's Fortune. So they aren't classifying it as a prequel.

I kinda like this. I planned on going back and playing Uncharted 1 and 2 before 3 comes out, but if this comes out near the time 3 releases I'll pick it up and play it first, and then work from here on up. it'll be fun!

ohh NICE! i thought it was uncharted 1 ngp version!!! but now i am even more excited :D

MightyMark4273529d ago

Nice can't wait for this one :0 A reason why I should get NGP on Day One

DeeZee3529d ago

Makes sense to me, you guys have to remember that ND considers each Uncharted game a "standalone" story. So actually, Uncharted 3 isn't even a sequel to Among Thieves. Just another event in Drake's life.

So this means no Elena or Choloe?

hazelamy3529d ago

it could feature chloe, she was like an old flame of drake's wasn't she?
this could tell the story of their first meeting, and the hijinks that leads to.

BlackKnight3529d ago

Don't think so, when Drake met Chloe on the beach, it looked like a first time meet.

Harry on the other hand, Drake knew of before.

MidnytRain3529d ago

Drake and Chloe shook hands and introduced themselves:

Chloe: "Chloe Fraser."
Drake: "Nate... Nathan. Nathan Drake."

It is possible, they did know each other but they pretended not to as she didn't want Flynn to know she was connected to him.

maybe Eddy's sister? maybe story takes a place in comic that searching some treasure from someones penthouse with Eddy???
