And another retailer rumor regarding a leaked announcement of a game has come to fruition. In case you missed it, a South African game retailer, BT Games, posted preorder information in both their stores and online for a Game of the Year edition of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. BT Games has had a stark history of blowing the lid off of game preorder embargoes and being right 100% of the time. Chalk this one up as another point in their favor, as Sony confirmed today that yes, there is an upcoming Game of the Year edition for Uncharted 3.
The GOTY edition will include all 14 DLC packs currently available. The press release has listed them as follows:
- Classic Skins Packs 1 – 3: A huge total of 25 skins for the Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience including fan favourites such as Nathan Drake as he appears in the original Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, or Winter Drake as he appears in Tibet during Uncharted 2: Among Thieves; even minor characters such as Cameraman Jeff make an appearance.
- Multiplayer Accessory Pack: Allows players to play skinned as a Capture Trooper from another PS3 exclusive, Killzone 3. Also includes the ISA and Helghast helmets accessories.
- Flashback Map Packs 1 and 2: Includes eight maps that bring reworked, dynamically improved environments from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves into the multiplayer of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
- Drake's Deception Map Pack: Four new multiplayer maps – The Graveyard, Old Quarter, London Streets, and Oasis – each incorporating its own dynamic events.
- Fort Co-Op Adventure: Additional content for the co-op adventure online game mode, Fort takes players on a journey through the fortress first seen in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune to seek out Nathan Drake.
- Co-Op Shade Survival: Take on wave after wave of some of the toughest enemies from the Uncharted series, the fiery Djinn. This co-op game mode provides a good multiplayer challenge that rewards quite handsomely.
- Doughnut Skin Pack: If you've ever wondered what Sully would look like if he really let himself go, this is the skin pack for you. Five characters from the franchise are depicted in larger-than-life form.
- Rogues Skin Pack 1 and 2: Tired of playing as Nate? Unnamed henchmen and hired goons more your thing? This is what you've been waiting for. Play as 14 minor antagonists from Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
No word as of yet when the GOTY edition will be gracing store shelves, but BT Games has an estimate of mid-May. They've been right thus far, so who am I to judge them wrong now?
