Naughty Dog and Sony have just announced what Uncharted 3 will be up to at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con and it’s safe to say that they have an Uncharted-palooza planned for convention attendees.
Sony’s Playstation Comic-Con booth will have six demo stations running three-team deathmatch starting on Thursday, July 21 and running all the way to the end of the convention on Sunday. This is located at #4237 and Naughty Dog may even throw in some co-op adventuring on the Syria map that was added at the end of the recent multiplayer beta.
The Playstation booth will also be giving away a limited number of Comic-Con exclusive t-shirts featuring a cartoony Nathan Drake and PSN codes to download multiplayer character torso item or a mystery weapon skin.
Uncharted 3 will also be featured at the following panels according to the Playstation Blog.
UNCHARTED 3 Panel – Room 25ABC
Our panel at Comic-Con two years ago for UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves was a unilateral success – you won’t want to miss the one we’ve got lined up for this year. On Friday, July 22, at 4:00 PM, we’ll be kicking off the UNCHARTED 3 panel in room 25ABC. You’ll want to show up early to get a seat! The panel description is below.
Developing Interactive Entertainment: The Performance Capture Techniques of the UNCHARTED Franchise and Today’s Film Industry
Join UNCHARTED 3’s Creative Director Amy Hennig, Cinematics team members Josh Scherr and Taylor Kurosaki, and cast members Nolan North, Richard McGonagle, and Emily Rose to discuss the influence of theatrical techniques and styles from the history of film that have helped the team continually produce industry-leading and award-winning interactive entertainment.
We’re also giving away an exclusive blue variant of our SDCC 2011 t-shirt at the end of the panel. The UNCHARTED 3 panel is the ONLY place you can grab one of these t-shirts, so be sure to show up early to ensure you get into the room – capacity is limited to about 400 people according to the SDCC floorplan. Of course, each t-shirt will also come with either a Multiplayer character torso item that matches the shirt OR the corresponding mystery weapon skin.
The Uncharted franchise will also be featured at the DC Comics booth (#1915) where the first Uncharted comic book will make its debut. Written by Joshua Williamson with art by Francesco Francavilla, the comic will send Drake on a quest to the center of the earth in search of the legendary “Amber Room.” The cover art is done by Adam Hughes who will also be on hand Friday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at AA4 to and Saturday at the same time at AA3 to sign limited-edition Uncharted cover poster.
Mezco Toyz also will have a Nathan Drake figure at its booth (#3445) which won’t be the only figure on display as Square Enix Play Arts -Kai- will have a Darke action figure on display at booth #3829.
