This game was released on November 04, 2011 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is a highly anticipated action-adventure game developed by Naughty Dog for the PS3. The third installment in the series will follow the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake and his partner Victor Sullivan as they search for the legendary city, the Iram of the Pillars. The game will take you to various locations around the world, including Europe and the Middle East.

Uncharted 3 will introduce a number of improvements and new gameplay elements. For example, the game will feature a melee combat system that allows you to fight multiple opponents at the same time and crush enemies located below you by jumping down on them. Drake’s Deception will also offer numerous online multiplayer and co-op improvements, as well as support for stereoscopic 3D.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception preorder bonuses

Pre-order Uncharted 3 before the launch and get access to some sweet multiplayer weapon mods and medal kickbacks. The following stores are each offering different incentives:

United States

  • Amazon has the Carpet Bomb Kickback which allows you to throw three grenades at once to blanket your opponent or take out a group of enemies with multiple explosions, and Clip Size Mods for Para 9 and G-MAL, which increase the ammo clip size for these weapons and let you shoot more before having to reload.
  • Best Buy will grant you early access to the Regeneration Booster, which, like the name implies, boosts your healing power to recover from wounds faster.
  • GameStop preorder bonus is the Creepy Crawler Kickback which gives you the ability to turn into a swarm of deadly creatures for a limited time and overwhelm your enemies.
  • Walmart is offering the Callout Mod for AK-47 which allows you to equip your AK-47 with a laser sight that enables your entire team to see the location of the opponent you are currently targeting. Sounds like it’ll be useful for multiplayer.

Reserving a copy of the game at other participating retailers in the US will get you an Uncharted 3 PSN avatar & static theme for PS3.
