Uncharted: Drake's Fortune will not be getting new trophies, only a re-badged version of the existing medals.
Naughty Dog, developer behind the PlayStation 3 hit Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
, has confirmed that the new trophy support coming to the game as part of Sony's achievement-alike system will not offer any new content in the game. Instead, the trophies will simply be a re-badged version of the already existing medals function within the game.
Medals in Uncharted
are given to players after certain feats, such as slaying a bunch of enemies or getting a bunch of headshots. However, according to Naughty Dog spokesperson Arne Meyer, Sony's trophies will just be a re-badge of the developers own system when it comes to Uncharted
There are 47 medals in the game to find and the only new addition to the game once trophy support is added will be a Platinum Trophy that players can get when all other trophies/medals are collected, Meyer told IGN
What's more, as with all other Sony games using Trophies, the achievements will not be available retroactively. Instead, even if you already have all the medals, you'll have to play the game from scratch and unlock them all again in order to turn them into trophies. Meyer admitted it would have been nice to issue awards retroactively, but wasn't possible. Apparently the fact that players cna move saved games around on the PS3 caused worries that people might cheat the trophy system.
There's still no date of when the trophy patch will touchdown for Uncharted
, as developers are having to add trophy support in to the entire PS3 back catalog one-by-one.
