Brand New Uncharted 3 Details

April 8, 2011, By Christian Davis

G4 has got some amazing new news about Naughty Dogs upcoming title, Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception. You’ll still be going through dangerous adventures and various locations with our beloved Nathan Drake, but the game will mostly center on the Arabian Desert.

Here are the rest juicy new details:

  • Drake will be spending most of his time in the Arabian desert, exploring the dunes of Rub’ al Khali.

  • You’ll still be globe trotting, visiting places like London and a jungle temple.

  • You can expect “all the things you’d expect in a desert” – that includes sandstorms and mirages.

  • This creates a dynamic environment to explore, with altering geography, “We’ve done a ton of research…The way sand blows over and curls over the tops of dunes, the way it displaces and flows – it’s almost a liquid,” said creative director Amy Hennig.

  • Plot is based around Lawrence of Arabia and Iram of the Pillars – The Atlantis of the Sands.

  • Drake and Sully are seen in the Empty Quarter, looking for Iram of the Pillars.

  • Apparently, there are bike sections, “We have a strong tradition of vehicular gameplay, and we try not to repeat ourselves,” says ND.

  • Story isn’t set in stone yet, but villain Katherine Marlowe is part of a secret order that dates back to the time of Queen Elizabeth I.

  • This is not Drake’s last adventure, ND stresses that “the Uncharted franchise was never conceived as a trilogy.”

  • Previous characters will be returning, does that include both Elena and Chloe?

  • New melee combat system lets Drake fight multiple enemies at once, but also shows him picking up a bottle from a table and introducing it to an enemy’s face. New stealth moves and mechanics have been added as well.

  • Naughty Dog said, “We’ll be sure to alert everyone if a public beta is in the works this time around.”

  • Sounds exciting right? What do you guys think?
