Developed by Naughty Dog (Jak and Daxter, Crash Bandicoot), Among Thieves continues the adventures of wisecracking treasure-hunter Nathan Drake, a distant relation of famed explorer Sir Francis Drake. The game will introduce both competitive and cooperative multiplayer to the series, as shown in the video demo below.

The first game in the series, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, has sold more than 2.6 million copies worldwide. It is also being adapted into a film by Sony-owned Columbia Pictures, with Hitman 2 scribe Kyle Ward writing the screenplay.

To promote the sequel, Sony will hold four Uncharted-themed events at movie theaters in the Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle areas on October 5 and 6. Attendees will be able to play the game on the big screen, compete in multiplayer tournaments, and have a chance to win a Fortune Hunter Edition of the game. Not available in stores, the Fortune Hunter package includes the game, a replica of a dagger artifact in the game, an art book, and a collector's case signed by the developers.
