No need to scan that headline twice and make sure you read it right – UNCHARTED 3 is real.

This morning, Entertainment Weekly revealed the next chapter in the critically-acclaimed, top-selling UNCHARTED franchise – UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception.

UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception continues to evolve all of the core principles we laid out for the UNCHARTED franchise, most important of which is creating an unmatched and extremely compelling interactive cinematic experience. In addition to having a compelling story and authentic characters that all of our fans can relate to as key facets to creating this type of experience, we push ourselves and the capability of the PlayStation hardware through constantly refined gameplay mechanics and technology innovation. Our dedication to creating the best interactive cinematic experience can be seen in our last two games – UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune and UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves. We’re especially honored and humbled that both titles have been so successful, selling nearly 8 million units combined and earning more industry awards and accolades than we can keep track of. We’ve set the bar very high for us to outdo the past successes of our previous UNCHARTED games. We’re looking forward to taking on this challenge to top ourselves and create a truly unforgettable interactive cinematic experience that everyone can enjoy.

So, if you’re wondering what UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception has in store for you, we wanted to share some early details.

UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception

UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception features the return of famed fortune hunter Nathan Drake and follows him through a gripping, action-packed storyline that will take you all over the world. In his search for the fabled “Atlantis of the Sands,” Nathan Drake and longtime friend and mentor Victor Sullivan set off on a daring trek into the heart of the Arabian Desert. But when terrible secrets of this lost city are uncovered, their journey becomes a desperate bid for survival that will force Drake to confront his deepest fears.

Throughout UNCHARTED 3, you’ll be taken to spectacular new locations around the globe that will showcase all of the work we’ve taken on to take acclaimed physics, particle and visual effects to a new level.

Competitive and co-op multiplayer will return as a key ingredient to the UNCHARTED 3 package, where all of the new features we have planned will combine with our signature single-player cinematic gameplay to create a unique action-adventure multiplayer experience that can only be found in the UNCHARTED universe.

Oh, and there’s one more thing – UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception fully supports high-resolution Stereoscopic 3D.

We’re looking forward to exploring it all with you in the months to come. Be sure to hit up your local newsstand tomorrow and pick up a copy of the December 17 issue of Entertainment Weekly – you’ll find a ton of additional details on UNCHARTED 3 and the new art shown above in glorious, full color print. Enjoy!

  • Thats furking AWESOME.
    I cannot wait to see more. although, its weird that this wasn’t revealed at the VGAs, but revealed none the less. AWESOME.

  • bluefire132

  • BrianMcGuinness


    Kidding. Can’t wait.

  • MariusElijah

    OMG!! OMG!!!!!!! CANT Breathe


  • Woohoo!

  • utopianacht

    wow… I really can’t wait.. and will preorder right away XD

  • Awesome!

  • Very nice, very nice indeed. Now all I need is the VGA’s this weekend to announce a new SSX and I’ll be set for next year. A new Katamari wouldn’t hurt either. :)

  • ND.
    I love you.
    But you and my coffers are enemies.

  • Need. New. Pants.

    Hurry up 2011!!!

  • I wish the teaser showed more. ; ; Next year is going to be insane.

    • Arne Meyer

      You’ll get to see a little bit more really, really soon. :)

  • I give you my “O” face! :O

  • I own a 3DTV, so obviously, this is good news, but if it means compromising anything in the 2D visuals, I’d rather not have it. Not for this game. It speaks volumes of 3D without the need for 3D :D

    • Arne Meyer

      It’ll look great in 3D — we’ll have more on that in the coming months.

  • Mercenary09

    Wow Sony is outdoing themselves in 2011! LBP2, KZ3, Twisted Metal, Resistance 3, R&C All 4 One, and now Uncharted 3! Amazing!!

  • oh baby jesus…. this is going to be EPIC

  • Naughty Dog have done such an exceptional job on the first two. I can’t wait to see what they’ve done with the third.

  • Looking fantastic so far. Uncharted is my favorite franchise and it looks like this will keep that intact.

    Congrats to ND for taking on challenges, like snow and sand, instead of trying to shoehorn another story into the same environment.

  • Tombstone_5_0

    WOW, number 3 already?!!

  • great looks like another year of being addicted to one game, never going to get through my entire library.

  • I take it that the Press event the day after the VGA’s will be an event for Uncharted 3, Correct?

  • dboyjealous

    OH……..MY…..GOD!!!!!!!!! I WANT RIGHT NOW!! going to pre-order this! i dont need gameplay, i know its going to awesome, and its going to deliver!!

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    Local multiplayer (split screen) and Move support please.

  • nice!

  • This is toooooo early. I’m still playing Uncharted 2. I don’t think it’s time for Uncharted 3 unless you guys brought up your Online Multiplayer skills up to Bungie’s level which I think no one is going to touch their level of dedication with online features.

    • Arne Meyer

      We’re still a long ways (relatively, in a game development sense) from releasing Uncharted 3 — by the time it’s out, you’ll be ready for it!
