Playing a game as your favorite hero? Cool. Playing a game as yourself, mo-capped and rendered beautifully? Awesome.
One lucky gamer will be immortalized in gaming history with their very own in-game multiplayer character for Uncharted 3. To become a game character, you have to prove that you ‘have what it takes’ in three online audition rounds hosted on Facebook here. Ten finalists will then fly to L.A. to compete in the live final in front of judges (presumably Naughty Dog). The winner will get to go to Naughty Dog’s studio and be made into a game character that will be available in a future update. To be a finalist, you have to have the most votes, and considering the top videos already up there have less than 100 votes, it’s anyone’s prize.
So, are you as good as Nathan Drake?
The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 18th March and entrants can share their auditions with the hashtag #asgoodasnathandrake
To give entrants a bit of inspiration, and learn more about how Uncharted was created, Sony produced three make.believe videos.
