Do you know what Nathan Drake is most afraid of? How about why, when, and where he first met Elena Fisher? Uncover these truths and much more via Drake’s first two critically acclaimed PS3 adventures when they arrive as digital downloads on the PS Store. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition will land on the PS Store in the downloadable PS3 game section on 27th June.

In Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, a 400-year-old clue in the coffin of explorer Sir Francis Drake leads Nathan Drake on a wild adventure to a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Here Drake hunts for the fabled treasure of El Dorado. Learn the backstory of the colourful cast of Uncharted characters and the ancient secrets El Dorado hides.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition is the winner of over 200 Game of the Year awards, and one of the most highly acclaimed video games of all time. In this sequel, Drake is drawn back into the treacherous world of thieves and treasure-seekers. A mystery artefact propels him to undertake an expedition to the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala where he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse against a fugitive war criminal. Pushed to his limits, Drake is forced to risk everything.

Once the PS Store updates on 27th June, all this DLC will only be available via purchase on the PS Store or when you buy the digital version of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition. Mark your calendar for 27th June and be sure to practice your witty comebacks, daring leaps, and fortune hunting tactics as Nathan Drake’s first two blockbuster hits will be just a download and a button press away!

  • That’s what I’ve been wanting for a while (as well as Uncharted 3 in digital form though it’s almost permamently in my blu ray drive).

    Having problems with my PS3 lately though. Last week the drive got corrupted and had to reformat the lot. Spent the past week with the PS3 on most days and even nights to download all my stuff again. Just finished this morning. And guess what? During automatic updates something happened and my drive got corrupted AGAIN. Going with a basic set up now til I figure out what the hell’s going on with my PS3. Redownloading all the Uncharted 3 stuff and looking forward to Doctor Who later tonight but damn I’ve lost all trust in my PS3 (and my internet connection’s overused. Must have downloaded over 350GB the past week all for nothing)

  • What are the pricing details? Will it be announced in Jawad’s Head-Up Store Update post?

  • How much will they cost?

  • I hope they are very sensibly priced. There are many people who refuse to buy the horrific grey and yellow Platinum boxed versions of the games (and any other games in those boxes), so there is definitely an opportunity to sell lots of digital Uncharted providing the pricing is good. PS+ discount would be nice too.

  • nice to see we are getting uncharted 2 DLC for free also, thanks :)

  • Like the other comments above, pricing will be the decider on whether i should purchase this. Remember you can pick up Uncharted 1&2 via the platinum edition for quite a cheap price.

    Will there be a plus discount?

  • just excused to play uncharted 1 again that was such a gd game and made me come a fan of uncharted

  • Price? Might buy Uncharted 1 again if the price is good.

  • will the save data from the disc versions work with the digital versions?

  • @1 why don’t you buy another ps3 the quite cheap now, who doesn’t already own these games uncharted is the best Sony exclusive also I think uncharted has spoiled most other tps games for me been playing max Payne 3 and I hate it the health system the painkillers are so out dated.

  • Uncharted 3 DLC absolutely free? For everybody? It’s awesome! Just one question: If I download it today, will I be able to play it after 27th June? Forever?

  • Uncharted 2 dlc is fantastic, I bought the gameplay-based expansions two years ago and they were worth every penny (at half the usual price, it was a steal!).

    It’ll be great to get these skin-based packs for zilch!

  • Sorry I mean Uncharted 2… I’m so happy that I make mistakes.

  • mattias… Uncharted 2 DLC.

  • Hi..

    Great offer..

    Although I have one question, I have already downloaded them when the offer was temporarily for Plus members, so I’m assuming they will be shown as already “bought” in the store. What happens now regarding the ownnership of these DLCs ? Are they going to be added to my account not bound to my Plus subscription ? What will happen if my Plus subscription comes to an end ?

    Hope I was clear.

    Regards,

    • If I might field this one on Phil’s behalf, you’ll be pleased to know that the Uncharted 2 DLC was always yours to keep FOREVER as part of your Plus subscription, so you have nothing to worry about.

      See you all soon!

  • Bealinato, yes I know :-)

  • If the price is higher than the retail price after so much time has passed since when U1 and U2 were released.

    Well if it happens, no support from me. I already got them, but would support ND if they and Sony can price them fairly.

  • would love to buy these but need confirmation on if the disk media game saves will work?

  • many thanks SCEE and ND. you did great by giving us this treat.

  • There are reports from some users that in the Portuguese store the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Golden Guns is not even listed. Will these be available eventually as well ?

  • @15 KlotX I think I can answer that for you. I got the u2 dlc from ps plus too and mine has expired. For me the red cart is shown which means you owns it.

  • @Phala1234: that’s it then.. thanks a lot for clarifying the issue :)

  • Finally! Been asking for Uncharted DF Digital release for months now.

  • Resistance and Killzone titles next, please!

  • Nice option to have, personally i doubt they’ll sell many, unless there (doubtful) being given away, ie very cheap… there again i suppose not everyone has played these games, again doubtful though.. Or pherhaps haven’t allready spent ‘real months’ worth of time doing so, thats possible.. so ‘maybe’ a few sales to those people, plus everyone who just wants them on their hdd.. even though they’ll ‘probably’ rarely find the time to re-play them.. i am kinda curious about the saves too, esp for charted2.. well the profile save anyways as i have around 17 mill,, be a shame for those who are getting them If they Have to start from scratch… Still as allways with ND, best of wishes and hope you do good.

  • I might get 2 depending on
    -price £15 at most
    -if save files are compatible
    Also whats the file sizes on both? Thanks.

  • I’ll be buying it for it being on the HDD, I’m just about done with buying discs now, might as well get ready for DD because that’s all you’re gonna have eventually. Maybe not next gen but eventually.

  • DLC is not free yet in Austria.

  • I JUST DOWNLOADED ALL THE FREE UNCHARTED 2 DLC THANKS NAWTYDAWG/SONY

  • @ Carnivius_Prime that’s why it’s always good to have retail games on disc, direct downloads are way too much hassle especially when things go wrong like in your case, i won’t be looking forward to the prices either, for both games they should be no more than £30 for both games at least(the double pack costs £24 right now for both games), anymore than that then that is just a rip off.

  • Never had any corrupted drives, but that’s probably just it, his drive is fault, broken. Drives do eventually die out though so if he’s had it more than 5 years or so then its likely.

    Go for a SSD if you can, they’re ridiculously fast, which will give load times a massive reduction over the blu ray drive.

  • DLC not yet free on the South African PS store

  • @ 32 same the dlc on Australian store also isn’t free
    but i noticed sometimes the store updates again the next day
    so maybe it will be up soon.

  • Slight problem with the free DLC. It doesn’t seem to work with the Platinum version of the game (BCES-00727). I go to Multiplayer and it tells me I don’t have any DLC and would I like to go to the store.

    Does it work with the Platinum version or ONLY with BCES-00509?

  • Hmmm… solved the above problem. Seems the AU Store only got the downloads for BCES-00509. On the UK Store, it gives you downloads for either BCES-00509 or BCES-00727.

    How do you get the Golden Guns DLC though?

    That’s mentioned in the announcement, but not actually available in the PSN Store.

  • I had a look in the US PSN Store, it’s labelled as “Golden Weapons” DLC, but it’s not available in the AU or UK PSN Store!

    Could someone please look into that?

  • Why exactly did I get all this at full price then? :p Oh well atleast I got to play it earlier :p
