A new PlayStation Network newsletter went out tonight containing an early synopsis of the story behind Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Naughty Dog’s upcoming sequel to hit PS3 action/adventure Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. The new wintry setting is apparently the Himalayan mountains, specifically a lost city hidden in a valley known as Shambhala. Below is the description from the newsletter. More details are in the January 2009 Game Informer, and the official unveil trailer will premiere this Sunday during Spike TV’s Video Game Awards.

Down on his luck, Drake is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers he had sought to leave behind. When a mysterious artifact propels Drake on an expedition to find the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala, he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse against a fugitive war criminal who is after more than just the fabled riches of the lost city. Caught in a web of deception and plunged into an increasingly deadly pursuit that tests the limits of his endurance, Drake will be forced to risk everything — but has his luck finally run out?
