Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Revealed for 2011

uncharted 3

In the grand Internet tradition of revealing things days in advance of when we’re supposed to find out, Sony and Naughty Dog have popped the cork on the official reveal of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception before the first legitimate trailer goes up Saturday on Spike’s Video Game Awards show.

In a post on the Official PlayStation blog, Arne Meyer, Naughty Dog’s Community Strategist, dropped some knowledge about the upcoming Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Like the previous game, globe hopping will be a main attraction but most of the plot centers around the search for a so-called “Atlantis of the Sands”. The game will pull inspiration from many sources, but Lawrence of Arabia is once that’s getting touted a lot. Players will also get to explore the relationship between Drake and his long-time partner and mentor Victor Sullivan, which is good news if you’re into some potential stubble-on-mustache action.

Also returning are the co-op and multiplayer modes that made their debut in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but this time around they’ll be a bit more robust. Single player also includes some new gameplay mechanics like being able to go toe-to-toe with multiple enemies. Naughty Dog also mentioned that Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will be available in high-definition stereoscopic 3D so you can have a little motion sickness with your platforming.

Not much else has been revealed aside from the potential release date of late 2011, but I expect that Saturday will uncover more about Drake’s third adventure. So, are you guys excited about the return of Nathan Drake? What do you want from Uncharted 3? Go!

  1. [quote comment=”14979″]OMG OMG OMG!

    More multiplayer, more co-op, more Nolan North and more Elena.[/quote]
    This

    Also I hope there are more parts in the game where you can sneak your way through like the first mission in Among Thieves and who doesn’t love Victor “god damn” Sullivan.

  2. Talk about the sequel no one was asking for… yeesh

    Kidding, the Uncharted franchise is beyond spectacular. Its hard to explain to my friends in an Xbox Live party how great an experience the second game was. My playstation has been broken for a couple months now but between this and Sly 4, Im gonna be tearing parts out of my Wii, PC, and alarm clock just to try to jerry-rig something up

  3. To reiterate Anthony:
    OMG OMG OMG!
    Uncharted 2 was my fave game of this gen so I’m literally jumping up and down with excitement and, yes, I’m “into some potential stubble-on-mustache action”.
