The PlayStation 4 exclusive title “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” was released at midnight, 10 May 2016, to fans at Funan Digital Mall in Singapore.
Fans turned up as early at 3pm to queue for the eagerly anticipated game. Besides the collection of the pre-ordered “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” Limited Edition PlayStation 4 bundle and game editions, pre-order customers and members of the public participated in an obstacle course challenge, aptly titled the “Nathan Drake Challenge Time Trial”.
Inspired by the treasure-hunting journey that game protagonist Nathan Drake had to go through, game enthusiasts competed in a 15-metre long obstacle course to win exclusive “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” premiums. The fastest competitor for the challenge walked away with an Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Bundle (worth SGD 599).
Adding on to the suspense of the game, the first 99 pre-order customers in the queue were rewarded with a Funko POP! Uncharted: Nathan Drake figure worth SGD 19.90. The subsequent 200 pre-order customers also took home exclusive Uncharted T-shirts. Uncharted fans also got a chance to experience the first three installations of the highly acclaimed series at the event.
Unchartered 4 will mark the end of Nathan Drake’s journey and will also be the last game launch at the popular tech aficionado and gamer destination, Funan IT Mall, which will close its doors for redevelopment. Teoh Wah Keong, Marketing Manager, Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch said, “We’re incredibly honoured to partner this iconic IT haven to host their final event, aptly for this prolific game launch – making it especially significant.”
Tan Pei Cheng, Centre Manager, Funan DigitaLife Mall, agreed, “As Singapore’s iconic IT mall, Funan DigitaLife Mall has hosted about 30 major game events in the last 10 years and PlayStation has been a huge part of it. As the mall prepares to embark on the future as new-generation integrated development #BeyondIT, it is fitting to crown its legacy as the definitive launch pad of major game titles with one grand large-scale game event before the mall closes for three years of redevelopment.”
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is now available for the PS4.
