Today Sony European Product Manager Phil Lynch has unveiled a release date for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Game Of The Year Edition, specifically September 19, 2012!
To quote: We've very happy to announce the release date of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Game of the Year Edition as 19th September 2012. Developed exclusively for PlayStation 3 by Naughty Dog, the Game of the Year Edition combines Nathan Drake's third critically acclaimed adventure, with additional pieces of multiplayer DLC, handpicked by the team for the release.
A quick recap for newcomers: Drake's third adventure catapults our hardy adventurer headlong into a dangerous search for the fabled "Atlantis of the Sands", taking in the mean streets of London, a burning French chateau and the heart of the Arabian Desert. It's a journey that pits him and his mentor Victor Sullivan against the occult treachery of a shadowy clandestine organisation and its ruthless leader, Katherine Marlowe.
When the terrible secrets of this lost city are unearthed, Drake's quest descends into a desperate bid for survival that strains the limits of his endurance and forces him to confront his deepest fears.
