Sony has officially announced Uncharted: Fight for Fortune for the PS Vita. The game is an action-adventure turn-based card game, launching via the PlayStation Store on 4 December at a price of $4.99. Details of a European release are still to be confirmed. Here’s the first Uncharted: Fight for Fortune trailer:
Chris Reese, the co-studio director at Uncharted: Fight for Fortune developer Bend Studio, explained the game in more detail on the US PlayStation Blog:
“The core gameplay in Uncharted: Fight for Fortune involves creating a team of Faction cards featuring heroes, villains, and mercenaries from the Uncharted universe, then using that team to defeat your opponent while defending yourself from their attacks.
“Each Faction card can be equipped with powerful Resource and valuable Fortune cards, which enhance their stats and give them special abilities. Once you’ve selected and equipped a card, it’s time to head into battle! During combat, attacks either reduce the health of opposing Faction cards or the health of your opponent. Defeating an opposing Faction card removes it from play, while reducing the health of your opponent to zero wins you the game.”
Players will be able to make use of any artefacts collected in Uncharted: Golden Abyss, while planned launch day DLC will offer additional Fight for Fortune cards.
