PS4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
is coming to North America and Europe on March 18th, Naughty Dog announced today. That listing by Amazon Germany
turned out to be pretty accurate, after all.
Naughty Dog has also revealed
that Nathan Drake's latest adventure will be available as part of three special editions. The first option for Uncharted 4
is the $79.99 Special Edition, which gives you a few extras along with some in-game currency:
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Blu-ray Disc
- Collectible Steelbook case designed by Alexander “That Kid Who Draws” Iaccarino
- 48-page hardcover art book by Dark Horse and Naughty Dog
- Naughty Dog & Pirate Sigil sticker sheet
- Naughty Dog Points: A pack of in-game currency to unlock various multiplayer content
The next step up is the $119.99 Libertalia Collector's Edition, which has everything in the Special Edition along with these physical and digital items:
- A 12″ premium Nathan Drake statue by Gentle Giant
- Three multiplayer outfits: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Heist Drake, and Desert Drake outfits
- Two custom weapon skins: Golden Weapon Skin and Desert Weapon Skin
- Henry Avery Sigil ball cap
- Madagascar Sidekick outfits
If you'd rather download the game, you can get the Digital Deluxe Edition for $79.99. This bundle comes with a digital copy of the game, day-one unlock for two multiplayer customization items, and the Uncharted 4
Triple Pack. The Triple Pack is the game's Season Pass equivalent, granting you future access to a single-player DLC pack as well as two multiplayer add-ons with "new, rare and legendary multiplayer items." If you purchased the Digital Standard Edition, you can upgrade to the Deluxe Edition at any time by forking over $20.
And yes, there are pre-order bonuses. Every physical or digital pre-order will unlock the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
outfit and Golden Weapon customizations for multiplayer along with some bonus Naughty Dog Points. The big retailers also have their own exclusive bonuses:
- GameStop - "Multiplayer Booster Pack to instantly unlock a variety of one-time use multiplayer boosts, and The Phurba Dagger Taunt based on the iconic symbol from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves."
- Amazon - "Snow Camo weapon customization and the Desert Drake outfit multiplayer customization."
- PlayStation Store - "Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Dynamic Theme and the Desert Weapon customization."
picks up three years after Drake's Deception
. Nathan Drake is drawn out of retirement by his long-lost brother Sam
to find a mysterious pirate treasure. It will be the first new Uncharted
released on PlayStation 4. Naughty Dog originally planned to release Uncharted 4
this year but was forced to delay it
so the game "meets the team’s high standards but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title."
