Uncharted 3 is Real! What We Know So Far
Well it finally is official, Geoff Keighley of GameTrailers and Entertainment Weekly revealed the first details of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. The game is still in the hands of the acclaimed developer Naughty Dog who is taking this franchise to the next level.
The story of the game is going to revolve around Nathan Drake's partner in crime Victor "Sully" Sulivan. Deception is going to be a huge theme in the story with Drake deceiving others as well as himself. The game will take place in the Arabian Peninsula with many of the environments being full of sand. That right people, first the jungle, then the arctic, now it looks like its gonna be deserts for this threequel. As always, history is an important part of each Uncharted story. This one will exploit the life of T.E Lawrence A.K.A the "Lawrence of Arabia".
Naughty Dog is going all out to make sure the cinematics are even more epic and lifelike. There is an even more expansive use of motion capture to make both the cutscenes and animation of characters in game even more realistic than before.
There is also promise of even more expansive multiplayer and co-op. Nothing has been revealed about them but stuff will be revealed in the months leading to its release.
