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!

The coop missions in Uncharted 2 were awesome fun. It would be awesome if there was a way to incorporate a coop campaign, but not if it twists the story too much.

I read the EW article this morning and although I knew it was coming, I still was very excited to see more on the project. I’ll say this now and I don’t even care what games come out next year (we all know thats a lie: Infamous 2, KZ 3, all the Move games, DCUO, LBP 2 etc. etc.cant wait but still..) 60+ Game of the Year 2011 awards. I’m calling it now.

BTW: You guys really need to add a mobile commenting feature so I can say something as soon as I get your tweets! I was at IHOP when you guys updated your blog! lol

wow @_@ Looks like Nate’s going f**king bada** in this one, did someone kidnap Elena ’cause he looks like he’s out for blood in these pics.

I’m guessing there’ll less clumsy humor in this one.

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

OMG, if that happens, I dont need any other christmas present. mark wahlberg is horrible and is the complete opposite of Drake.

Thanks for the reply Arne Meyer.

That’s good to know. I feel like this series is going to live up as much as the MGS Series and others that are as good.

Also, I just posted a new Idea in PlaystationShare. Hope you guys check it out. It would be much more fun to not have to be playing by myself during holidays of which family comes over to my house. I would be playing Uncharted by myself because it’s for one player. They would want to play but I can’t let them play because it would be fair to my other fam members, and taking turns on where people die is not much fun anymore.

With that said, Splitscreen offline and online with guests in your house will be lovely. Hope you consider this idea one that you can try to get in the Uncharted Universe.

AND ALSO IN 3D!!!! You guys are trying to force me into getting a new TV aren’t you! Now if Flower was patched to support 3D I’d be buying a 3D TV the day Uncharted3 is released!
You guys are just the best!

Reginthorn said:

December 9th, 10:36 am

Is this the big announcement you guys had for the VGA’s?

Einhander138 said:

December 9th, 10:36 am

One thing to say ND:

Ditch the multiplayer and focus on making a solid, long *SINGLE* player game.

Multi-player ruined UC2.

Keep MP *away* from my *SINGLE* player games.

No MP means I will buy this day one. The inclusion of MP means I will buy it UC3 used when I can find it for $20.

It’s your choice whether you want my money or not.

wheeeee *jumpintothemonitortokiss*

Thanks guys from Naughty Dogs!

I am not sure, if is on the 12th December show the Sony from new Game on the screen, isn’t true? at time?

It is could to see, who Nate his Age little bit middle of the Age, not younger as than from Uncharted’s Drake Fortune and Among Thieves… then I tell who he is too sexy… *lol* But I am first female videogamer ;)

Einhander138 said:

December 9th, 10:39 am

And don’t listen to the people asking for local MP, splitscreen or anything else. They are brainless, drooling morons.

Concentrate on making a good *SINGLE* player game instead of including trendy aspects that people won’t use a month later.


HughJackmanfan said:

December 9th, 10:40 am

and I forget to say, I hope not when Game in Freeze or more Bugs and we wish good game and long Story. If is game too short then we let’s know why.

letherclad said:

Finally my favorite series is back! can’t wait!

jwood87 said:

December 9th, 10:42 am

Thank you ND, this is one of the best franchises ever… Please don’t compromise the Single player campaign just to satisfy people complaining about multiplayer or to put it in 3D… These games are great just the way they are!!!

epsilon12 said:

December 9th, 10:42 am

omg…i hope the graphics are better now!!! i love uncharted!

Einhander138 said:

December 9th, 10:43 am

@221 You’re exactly right. Unfortunately, they compromised UC2 with the inclusion of pointless MP. It was a flat out slap to the face of people who like single player games.

Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson and won’t continue to spit in the face of people who enjoy certain kinds of games.

jadjohnny said:

December 9th, 10:43 am

OMG OMG OMG!!! Now We are talking about… best news all day long!

better prepare a great collector/limited edition this time around… you heard Sony/Naughty Dogs… it’s not a wish, it’s a order xD

Way to tease us with almost nothing you guys, but regardless, I can’t wait! any release date?

jonboi24 said:

December 9th, 10:44 am

Can’t wait for this game. Its going to be hard to surpass Uncharted 2 but I believe in you guys. Just wondering when you say “confront his deepest fears” does that pretty much confirm there will be clowns in the game?

Seriously guys water, snow/ice, and now sand whats next for Uncharted 4, underwater or space? Or will he confront a new challenger, like a female equivalent who raids tombs?

Myke-Myke said:

December 9th, 10:45 am

Wow! I can’t believe you guys are letting this out of the bag already! I can’t wait for this.

Was this, Uncharted 3, suppose to be the big reveal after the VGAs???

AG-WarFighter said:

December 9th, 10:45 am

WHy do you guys do that im pissed you announced killzone 3, uncharted 3 the most EPIC STUFF EVER HERE why not at a event like VGA or something! WHY!!!!!!!?? WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


GTerholli said:

Please make it M for MATURE!

UltraRazpacho said:

December 9th, 10:46 am

Wow, didn’t see that coming.

ODINGameslayer said:

December 9th, 10:46 am

WHY oh WHYYYY does every game have to shoehorn in multiplayer? UC2 gained nothing from it. Ditoo for co-op–way overrated.

Notwithstanding, both games are two of my all-time favorites, and I’m sure that 3 will be no exception.

I just wish devs would use that effort to add more GAME content instead of wasting resources on a finite MP experience.

DrkNvmbr said:

December 9th, 10:47 am

This is awesome. Glad to see there’s a third one coming out. Now I really have to beat the second one. If it wasn’t for my old PS3 dying and taking the hard drive with it, I would have already beaten it.

hesido said:

December 9th, 10:47 am

Do you guys sleep at all?

Go_Buddie_Go said:

December 9th, 10:47 am

@Einhnader138: Well, if it’s single player you want. Go play Fallout New Vegas or Final Fantasy 13. Whether you like it or not, Multiplayer will be featured in a ton of games including games with previous iterations not having multiplayer(Ex: Dead Space 2, Uncharted 2, AC:Brotherhood, Bioshock 2).

On topic
This announcement has me very happy and I know Naughty Dog won’t disappoint, I’m a huge fan of their work from Crash to Jak and Daxter to Uncharted. I’m also hoping there will be a midnight launch.

2011? i think it will be 2012… but if it is 2011 OMG so many games for Playstation only!!! next year will be awesome year for playstation…

Ahmed13 said:

December 9th, 10:49 am

There must be some kind of mistake. Your main character doesn’t look anything like Mark Wahlberg.

Seriously, though, I understand you give up some control when licensing the IP, so perhaps you cannot force the director to cast Nathan Fillion or Bradley Cooper or someone else in the role. But you don’t have any input regarding the movie’s plot?

Oh well! At least we’ve got UNCHARTED 3, which I know will be fantastic.

Einhander138 said:

December 9th, 10:50 am

@236 And none of those games (DS2, UC2, AssBro, Bioshock 2) needed their pointless MP modes. Go online now – who is still actually playing BioShock 2 or UC2? Nobody.

They need to focus on making a good *single* player game instead of appeasing the drooling morons who think this is going to be like Call of Duty.

I’d rather see the game not come out than have it include MP.

Uriel_Itachi said:

December 9th, 10:50 am

Whoa Uncharted 3, I need to catch up, I still haven played the second one. XD

Northstar77 said:

December 9th, 10:52 am

Love this series. Would love some campaign co-op that would be real tight. Loved the Multi-player in 2. Not sure what people thought the multi-player took away.

Einhander138 said:

December 9th, 10:53 am

@242 The MP took away time, money and resources from the single player mode.

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

ODINGameslayer said:

December 9th, 10:55 am

@241: Bioshock 2 MP…lol

If we MUST have MP, in the name of mercy, PLEASE don’t have MP trophies. Or.. at least handle it the way you did for UC2.

I seriously don’t wanna level grind. Seriously.
