Semaphore’s obvious homage to the Uncharted franchise Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta will fire onto the PlayStation Network on 29th May, the developer has announced. The episodic title – which puts you in the boots of Faris Jawad – promises to send you on an expedition throughout the Middle East on the trail of a famous Muslim explorer.

The title will feature a “unique mix of platforming, melee fighting, shooting, and stealth gameplay”. It will also include optional PlayStation Move support. There’s no word on a price just yet, but we’re guessing that it won’t break the bank. On the one hand, it’s nice to see a Middle Eastern studio take a shot at such an ambitious project – but this does look a lot like a budget Uncharted, doesn’t it?
