Are you ready for a new Nathan Drake adventure?

Synopsis and Features
Dark secrets are hidden inside the dense jungles of Central America. Drake’s long-time friend, Jason Dante, needs help to uncover those secrets. Drake is sceptical, but teams together with Dante on his mission. As he travels deep into an unknown territory, Drake gets attacked by many enemies and he has no idea how they reached there. Trying to uncover all the mysteries surrounding him, Drake has to separate the lies from the truth while also fighting for his life.
Developed by SCE Bend Studio with additional help from Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, Uncharted: Golden Abyss will keep you up for hours at night with its engaging gameplay. The single-player mode in the game will take you across the beautiful forests in Central America that are surrounded with mountain ranges, ruined temples and many other things. You have to move carefully as one wrong step can kill you without warning. The game is engaging to play as you can swing from ropes, make death-defying leaps and more.
The puzzle-based gameplay has been tweaked as you now have to put together maps, match symbols to open doors, take charcoal rubbings of artefacts and others. The touchscreen on the back of the PS Vita enhances the interactive aspect as you will have to use the controls several times to get Nathan out of dangerous situations.
There are a variety of weapons at your disposal that you can use to silence your enemies. These include pistols, sniper rifles, grenade launchers, rocket launchers, machine guns and many others. The animations in the game are smooth flowing as you will feel the recoil when you shoot bullets at your opponents. As said earlier, Golden Abyss is all about strategizing before acting. You will succeed a lot more if you plan your attack before going guns blazing in front of your enemies. This also enhances the excitement factor in the game.
If you like exploring or are a fan of collectibles you are in for a treat as you can search for a lot of hidden items in Golden Abyss. You can exchange collectibles with other players from across the world using Near: a social networking application exclusive for the PlayStation Vita. The Black Market option in the game will help you in finding some rare collectibles that are not easy to find. Treasure Map DLC is available for the game and adds a treasure map for each chapter, allowing players to easily locate collectibles in the game.
