Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception doesn't hit stores until November 1, but Sony and AMC Theatres are giving eager gamers a chance to play the game early on the big screen: first at one of a handful of AMC events around the country, and then at home.

Those who don't go to the event will need to wait until November 1 for a copy of Uncharted 3.

From October 18 through October 20, AMC locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, New York, and Dallas will host Uncharted "Play It First In 3D" events that will let gamers do exactly that. The events will host multiplayer tournaments for Naughty Dog's latest PlayStation 3 exclusive, a look at the development of the game from the studio, and PlayStation-themed giveaways throughout the night.

That portion of the event will cost $25 to attend, but gamers who pony up $60 for the Uncharted 3 Premium Pass will also have a copy of the game shipped to them via FedEx on October 25, a week before it hits stores. For more details on the event and which theaters are participating, check the AMC Theatres website.

Uncharted 3 will focus on protagonist Drake's search for a lost city, with the wily adventurer finding his way to the Arabian Peninsula and its bleak Empty Quarter. In addition to the new multiplayer overhauls, the game will feature stereoscopic 3D capability, new stealth and melee maneuvers, and more. The game will debut alongside the first novel based on the series, Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth.
