Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta Gameplay Footage

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
It's time to play everyone's favorite interactive game show, " Will they be sued?" This Uncharted clone looks to capture some of the gaming beauty found in Naughty Dog's flawless series and put it into an episodic, downloadable format for XBLA.



Being developed in Saudi Arabia, Unearthed definitely..."borrows" from Uncharted, but I don't want to knock the game too much before it comes out, and neither should you. It seems awfully ambitious for an arcade game, and if the developers tap into the game's potential, gamers may have a new series to look out for. The game promises diverse gameplay including exploration (like in Uncharted), shooting (like in Uncharted), climbing and ledge traversal (...Uncharted), melee takedowns (yes, Uncharted.) and vehicle sections (you know, like in Uncharted).

All jokes aside, it is nice to see a lesser-known developer, especially from a region not known for gaming, trying to make a name for themselves. No release date has been announced yet.
