Still climbing after all these years

Sony released a lot of details surrounding its portable Uncharted game today, including its official name, unique control schemes and some fresh in-game screenshots.

Now known as Uncharted: Golden Abyss, this latest installment in the franchise retains the same heavy focus on platforming and gunplay while adding new gameplay elements via the touchscreen and motion controls.

In the video released along with the game's announcement, Sony Bend shows off some of the touch screen controls, which include sliding your finger up and down to zoom in and out of a sniper scope, finger dragging to chart a path for Drake to grapple and traverse, and interacting with objects like doors and items by simply touching them. There is even a return to the motion controlled balancing acts of the first Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
