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!

Love the Uncharted series. I can’t wait for this one.

mywhitenoise said:

December 9th, 9:41 am

Also, please stop the Uncharted movie from being made. At least pick of a different writer/director.
Marky Mark and his funky bunch (DeNiro and Pesche) are NOT the stars I wanted in Uncharted. Nathan Fillion!

im sooo happy!!! great news day… what really would make this day better is that the Uncharted movie gets canned and Amy Hennigs takes over and we have Nolan North and the rest of the uncharted crew play there characters

man one can only wish for such a thing

December 9th, 9:42 am

wow the franchise sold 8m

so that means 5m copies of UC2 now and around 7m LTD

i think they will release it during Queers of war 3 release just to kill off x360.

PS3 would have overtaken x360 in WW sales by december 2010 or march 2011 at the worst

UC2 won 150 awars . this one will have 300 awards and 99% at metacritic

Sony… Put Drake everywhere!!! Entertainment Weekly is a good start. Uncharted series deserves better sales. Naughty Dog definitely comes thru for its fans so we should return the favor so make sure everyone and their mother knows about this.

I want a LBP2 Machinima tools parody of this too!

Little skeptical as to the way Drake looks in that bottom picture. His face looks a lot broader, which is odd. He looks more like Sam Fisher than Nathan Drake. D:

¡¡I’m so excited for this!! Uncharted is my favourite video game franchise ever; even ahead of God of War. Naughty Dog is one of my favourite developers too, if not my absolute favourite. I’ve been a huge fan since Jak & Daxter and Crash Bandicoot. This game looks so good. My brother and I squealed like little girls when we read this. Thanks, Naughty Dog. I have faith in you that you’ll make yet another ground-breaking, remarkable experience for Drake, Sully, Elena, and the players.

It’d be great if there was local multiplayer as well with co-op and four player split screen deathmatch, plunder, etc.

God, I can’t wait though. Uncharted 2 was a flat out masterpiece! Looks amazing, ND, keep up the great work!

Ekisperto said:

December 9th, 9:57 am

Excellent, Uncharted 3 will be The Game of The Year for sure. I’ll be waiting for it. What will be the maximum online level this time?

Played the 1st and second. This is really the only game this gen that’s kept my full attention. I don’t even really beat any games anymore. Most get boring fast. But Uncharted doesn’t.
