UNCHARTED 3’s Lead Designer on 3D + the New Villainess

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager


As you’ve no doubt seen already, Naughty Dog chose GDC as the place to reveal Nathan Drake’s antagonist for UNCHARTED 3. The calculating Katherine Marlowe is clearly a different type of villain than the brute force Lazarevic or deadly accurate Navarro.

Watch now as U3’s lead designer Richard Lemarchand tells us more about this villainess, as well as the talent behind the role. He goes on to tell us about the positively jaw-dropping implementation of 3D, and how its development pays dividends even to players who don’t yet possess a 3D display.

Did you hear Richard use the word “stereoscopy” in a sentence? It speaks wonders of the English schooling system.

I hope there is a collector’s edition, contrary to my constant whining about every game these days getting a collector’s edition.

so awesome.

sales aside, uncharted is a truly one of the greatest franchises around and still so new really.

my two favorite new franchises have to be uncharted and dead space.

I hate to be “that guy” doing the off topic post, but where’s our White Knight Chronicles 2/WKC PSP post? Both games were announced for Europe yesterday, it would make sense that if they’re being localized we’d see them as well. Don’t make us wait too long for an announcement! :)

JoGam said:

March 10th, 11:54 am

Yeah is used that word. LOL. While watching the video I read “Did you hear Richard use sterocopy” and I was thinking huh, then he said it. I laughed out loud.

If you guys decide to make a collectors edition i think you should add Drake’s necklace.

Can’t wait for this game to come out, big fan of the series and I’ve bought all the Uncharted things that have come out on psn including skins and even the eye of indra comic which was great. Seriously guys, I hope you guys are planning a collectors edition, don’t do it like with Uncharted 2 that you had to win the collectors edition and that was the only way.

Of course you could always have both, a special one and one available to the public for pre-order because I know im getting it! Can’t wait to hear more news, love how you guys aren’t stingy with the news, any bit of news is great no matter how small.

When will the videos work on IPOD/IPHONES so the PS BLOG APP won’t become obsolete? I mean seriously, I don’t need super hd for my iPod. Although it might be nice.

I like the new villian.

It’s something unexpected and different.

Glad Naughty Dog is taking some risks with some of the characters.

I’m looking forward to Uncharted 3.

Show me the multiplayer/co op.

Single player I want it to saved for when I play it.

No more spoilers for me.


Please Sony/Naughty Dog if your listening release a Collector’s Edition for Uncharted 3.

As a fan I want one.

I’ll pay top dollar for it.

Just release it.

Come on gamers let’s tell Naughty Dog we want a collector’s edition to be made.

Uncharted 3: Collector’s Edition
-Game (Obviously.)

-Sound Track.

-Art Book.

-Action Figure Display Model.

-2X Multiplayer for the first week of release.

-PS Home Avatars.

-PS Dynamic Theme. (Not one on PSN Store but a new one something exclusive to the Collector’s Edition.)

Not fair…it’s like 235 days to go!!
The game looks stunning – love the idea of a totally different villain. Each and every news snippet and trailer is eagerly anticipated but it’s just making the wait harder.

I’d just like to add my vote for a buyable Collector’s Edition and I think the idea (from a previous post) of including a Drake’s Necklace would be awesome.
