Despite being delayed from its fall 2015 window like originally planned, anticipation for the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is growing and luckily, fans now know when they can experience the final chapter in Nathan Drake’s journey.
Sony revealed in a new post on the PlayStation Blog that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will release on March 18th, 2016, along with providing a hefty breakdown of pre-order bonuses and what fans can expect in the highly-anticipated game’s various collector’s editions.
Two limited edition versions of the game will be made available with the Special Edition and the Libertalia Collector’s Edition. First, the regular Special Edition (MSRP $79.99 USD, $99.99 CAD) will include a collectible Steelbook case with special artwork, a 48-page hardcover art book, a sticker sheet, and a pack of in-game Naughty Dog points for the game’s multiplayer.
Upping the ante is the Libertalia Collector’s Edition ($119.99 USD), which will include everything in the regular Special Edition alongside a premium 12″ statue of Nathan Drake, three exclusive multiplayer outfits (Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Heist Drake, and Desert Drake), two custom weapon skins (Golden Weapon Skin, Desert Weapon Skin), a Henry Avery Sigil baseball cap, and outfits for the Madagascar sidekicks.
For those that are digitally-inclined, a Digital Deluxe Edition of Uncharted 4 will also be available ($79.99 USD) that includes the Uncharted 4 Triple Pack, which provides “future access to the first-ever, single-player story add-on for the Uncharted series and two multiplayer packs that will unlock new, rare and legendary multiplayer items.” The Digital Deluxe Edition will also include two multiplayer customization items.
The Triple Pack will also be provided as a separate add-on to purchase for Uncharted 4, essentially acting as a Season Pass to future content for the game. Those that have already pre-ordered the game digitally can upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition for an additional $20. Pre-orders for the Digital Deluxe Edition will go live on the PlayStation Store later this week.
As a final note, pre-order bonuses for both the various physical and digital editions of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will include the Drake’s Fortune outfit for multiplayer, a pack of Naughty Dog points, and a Golden Weapon customization. Sony also broke down the various pre-order bonuses that will be retailer-specific:
- Pre-order at GameStop to receive the Multiplayer Booster Pack to instantly unlock a variety of one-time use multiplayer boosts, and The Phurba Dagger Taunt based on the iconic symbol from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
- Pre-order at Amazon to receive the Snow Camo weapon customization and the Desert Drake outfit multiplayer customization.
- Pre-order via PlayStation Store to receive the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Dynamic Theme and the Desert Weapon customization.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will release for PS4 on March 18th, 2016.
