Sony Co-Director Chris Reese of Bend Studio has announced that Uncharted: Fight for Fortune launches today on PS Vita.
Below are the details, as follows: Last month I announced Uncharted: Fight for Fortune, an original PS Vita title building on the Uncharted universe, was going to launch exclusively on the PlayStation Store in December. I'm here now to let everyone know that you can download it today!
Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is an action-adventure turn based card game featuring all the heroes and villains that you have met throughout the Uncharted games, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss on PS Vita, which directly ties into your experience in Fight For Fortune.
The learning curve for card games can be steep, but rest assured we spent a considerable amount of time in the early design of Uncharted: Fight for Fortune to make sure it was going to be easy to learn, engaging and a whole lot of fun to play. You will be playing within minutes of booting up the game.
The first thing you will probably want to do once you launch Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is kick off the Fortune Hunter single player campaign. This campaign features more than eight hours of gameplay that will be spent playing against various characters from Uncharted, and the first couple games will teach you everything you need to know - with a gentle learning curve.
Games you win in the campaign will unlock not only Trophies, but also new items including characters, weapons and armor, artifact cards, and player avatars and backgrounds. Use them to customize the game to suit your personality, and use the items to create powerful combos to devastate your opponent.
Speaking of unlocks, everyone who's played Uncharted: Golden Abyss, in the last month can start powering up and collecting cards for use immediately in Uncharted: Fight for Fortune!
You'll just need to make sure that Fight For Fortune is installed on the same memory card as your Golden Abyss save, and you will be good to go. Already collected everything? No worries, just launch Uncharted: Golden Abyss to receive your cards and they will all be available automatically in Uncharted: Fight for Fortune.
If that wasn't enough to keep you busy, Uncharted: Fight for Fortune also includes competitive asynchronous multiplayer. Play against your friends in the same room with a Pass & Play option, or over a WiFi / 3G connection via matchmaking competitions. Impress your friends and start making a name for yourself on the leaderboards (which reset monthly) today.
Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is available today on PlayStation Store for $4.99. It includes all your favorite heroes, villains, weapons, and artifacts from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and the motion comic Uncharted: Eye of Indra.
Although you'll have more than 100 cards to unlock and Trophies to collect, we didn't stop there. Available immediately are expansion packs for $1.99 $2.99 each that bring both Uncharted: Among Thieves and Uncharted: Drake's Deception to the table, bringing along with it expansions to the single player campaign, more unlockables, and of course even more Trophies to earn.
Download the trial today and find out for yourself what this new Uncharted experience is all about. I look forward to putting your new-found strategies to the test online!
