Uncover the truth in UNCHARTED 3!

Arne Meyer's Avatar Posted by Director of Communications, Naughty Dog


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!

Can I please get a response Naughty Dog……I’ve tried numerous times to get a picture of the event where I won the Fortune Hunter Edition. It was in Rosemont, IL and they took pictures of the 1st-3rd place teams and said pics would be on the blog. I want a copy of that pic if at all possible, Thanks Sarno1605

This is great news! Uncharted 2 is personally my #1 best PlayStation 3 game. I’m positively sure Uncharted 3 would not let down. Mid 2011 release date hopefully?

I just hope that they include ALL DLC for free for players who buy it. It pissed me the hell off that I got Uncharted 2 in May for $60 because I couldn’t afford it full price whe it first came out(with DLC to have to be bought which was another $20-$30 ($80-$90 total), then a month later they come out with another edition FOR THE SAME PRICE, with all the DLC for FREE! ($60). If they play that dumb ass card again, I’m NOT buying the 3rd game and I’ll wait for the 4th game until I buy the 3rd one. That was NOT cool of them.

ssmarcos3 said:

December 10th, 2:27 am

it would be so funny if the fourth game was a racing one because they did that with the crash and jack franchises

jdneul said:

December 10th, 2:45 am

wooooow if the gfx are as ggod as some of the art up there my mind will be blown away, pure madness

jdneul said:

December 10th, 2:55 am

Also please do some move support that would be brilliant for the move adopters, if you make it optional then it will not affect dual shock users (hence everyone wins)

2011 is going to be a beastly year for PS3. I’ve probably put in more hours into Uncharted 2 than any other game in the past few years, probably keep it rolling all the way till 3.

A) You are 100% wrong. MP does not benefit single player games, period.

B) Learn to spell benefit.

Awesome is all I can say! I’m gonna make my PS3 wallpaper the first image. I downloaded it from the facebook site in its original size. Man the detail is fantastic. I noticed that there is a horse shoe on his belt buckle. This is new from UC2. Arne, what is up with the different belt buckle?

Uncharted is the best franchise on any console period.

DarthAltair said:

December 10th, 12:55 pm

Hey will this game have co-op single player?????

LilZohan said:

December 10th, 1:23 pm

Wow!!!!!! i have loved Uncharted 2 since i got it last christmas! i havent ever gotten tired of it, whether it be single player story or the amazing online gameplay. There is only one complain- where’s the 2 or 4 player split screen? I would definately love having this feature on the new uncharted because if im ever hanging with the guys they get bored just watching me play all the time. Online is amazing and fantastic!!! is there anyway to just use the same online multiplayer gameplay and also add a splitscreen gameplay similar? Because thats the last area this game actually needs. Uncharted 1: full single player / Uncharted 2: single and online multiplayer / UNCHARTED 3: single player, online multiplayer, and splitscreen 4 controller deathmatches!!!! it just sounds right. I hope this can be made into a reality somehow.

Love all thats going on with Naughty Dog! Dont stop!
Thank you!

RockLeeX said:

December 11th, 3:56 am

I DEMAND 4 player splitscreen offline (hopefully online too) for co-op AND competetive!

I also DEMAND that players can play co-op for the actual campaign!

Please make my dreams come true!!! :'(

Uncharted 2 MP is my favorite MP and the single player experience is unforgettable so yeah Uncharted 3 has already made me think it’s better than the first 2 combine!

Dear Naughty Dog, I heard about the Uncharted 3 Drake’s Deception but I have a few questions about the game. Will we be able to play the beta if you get inFamous 2 ,and how long does it take to complete story? Will the game be rated T for Teen? The reason why is because I’m a big fan of Naughty Dog ,and would like to see the game franchise rated T instead of M. Also, will there be DLC for Multiplayer.

Thank you for your time,


P.S. Could you please answer this question if you play the beta at E3.

PredAl13n29760JZ said:

Please have Elena Fisher be in the game.

I also signed up for updates and gave my email and didn’t get anything about the theme. Maybe these things aren’t ready yet? I also noticed that when you ask for birth date there is no month of April, woooops!

I am in awe of what this game might and hopefully will be reading up on some T.E.L to get myself prepared can not wait I need to be put in a coma for a little under a year.

Same here. Not valid. Sounding much like the LBP2 Beta Code issue:
