Uncharted 2 Confirmed, First Details Released

A sequel to Naughty Dog's PlayStation 3 action title Uncharted: Drake's Fortune has been confirmed by way of a video teasing an upcoming trailer.

GameInformer has also released some details of the sequel, officially titled Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Protagonist Nathan Drake will predictably return, facing a quest that revolves around 13th century explorer Marco Polo. The game will feature a new emphasis on story, as well as a "free climbing mechanic" and stealth gameplay.

Following the original's 2007 release, Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells told Three Speech that fans could "pretty much count on us doing one in the near future."

The trailer will debut on Spike TV's 2008 Video Game Awards ceremony on Sunday, December 14. The teaser is copied below.
