Uncharted Fjord? PlayStation Norway reveal tomorrow

Wednesday, 21st March 2012 07:49 GMT By Johnny Cullen

PlayStation Norway’s Facebook account has led to a splash page that likely has Uncharted connected to it.

The picture of Nansen that PlayStation
Norway teased on Facebook.

The Facebook page posted a picture of Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, with the word “uutforsket” across it. In English, it means “unexplored”.

Nansen explored Greenland, and also took part in an expedition that took him to the North Pole between 1893 and 1896, according to his Wikipedia page.

He died in May 1930.

Tied to the unexplored tagline is a Sony splash page, uutforsket.no. While this could be anything, it’s clearly reminiscent of Uncharted, what with the style of music playing and the map in the background.

The splash also points to a reveal tomorrow, March 22, at 20:59.

We’ve contacted Sony. As noted in the comments below (thanks, Benjamin), Sony Denmark did something similar before the release of Uncharted 3. Through a social campaign, users could follow the adventures of fiction Danish explorer Wilhelm Von Bernhoff to help find treasures.

The last big Uncharted release was Golden Abyss on PlayStation Vita last month, while the last game in the main series from creators Naughty Dog was Drake’s Deception last November.

Naughty Dog has now installed two teams, one of which is working on new IP The Last of Us, headed up by Uncharted 2 vets Neil Druckmann and Bruce Stanley.

Its unknown what project the Uncharted team, including celebrated writer Amy Hennig, is doing post-Uncharted 3. It’s set to end its DLC commitment to the game’s multiplayer next month.

Thanks, Ole Marius.

    They did the same thing in Denmark before the release of Uncharted 3. It was a social campaign in which people could follow the trails of the Danish (fictional) treasure hunter Wilhelm Von Bernhoff.

    The purpose was to solve riddles and use clues to find a treasure hidden in Copenhagen.

    Here’s the website: http://www.uudforsket.dk (the text says “The campaign is over”)

    ^ “Over” in Danish is ‘Slut’? Slut!

    Anyway, same address, same music. Seems theres more chance this is related to a competition then a game.

    God no. I don’t want that. They really over-do it. Give the guys three years minimum, because if the release of Uncharted 3 told us one thing, its that people get sick of getting sequels to fast.

    It’s got to be a social campaign for Golden Abyss, right?

    ^ Most likely, seeing as it took ND 2 years to release a new UC, and that they’d no doubt want to release Last of Us first, it seems almost impossible this is a new game, unless its some kind of spin-off, but even that seems unlikely. Also, its blatantly reusing the address and music from an older social game, so yeah.

    Spin off for some other console. 4 Uncharted titles on a single generation can’t be good. 3 was okay 4 would be too damn much (CoD?).
