Earlier this month, the Hollywood Reporter provided an update on Sony Pictures' Uncharted film, saying that production would proceed with I Heart Huckabees director David O. Russell having signed on to write and direct. But that live-action extension to Sony's highly acclaimed PlayStation 3-exclusive action adventure franchise isn't the only way gamers can experience Nathan Drake's travails beyond the games.

Today, Del Rey Books announced Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth, a novel based on the Naughty Dog-developed franchise that is due in fall 2011. Christopher Golden has been tapped to bring the novel to life. Golden's previous work includes novels The Ferryman, Strangewood, The Gathering Dark, and The Body of Evidence series. He has also penned books and comics related to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel TV series, among other works.

The Fourth Labyrinth follows game protagonist Nathan Drake on an all-new treasure-hunting adventure. While Del Rey did not go into plot specifics, the book publisher did indicate that readers will follow Drake through the labyrinth of Daedalus, the ruins of Crete, and "a secret crypt deep in the heart of China."
