Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Confirmed

Recently, EW visited Naughty Dog, at their Santa Monica, California offices to take a look at the next installment of the Uncharted series and wished that next year was right now. Not a lot of information was given out yet since it’s very early but the screenshots and trailer do look nice.

According to Naughty Dog’s creative director Ann Hennig, the theme of deception plays out in multiple ways throughout the threequel, from Drake doing the deceiving to Drake being deceived to some mysterious deception about Drake’s very identity. The story focuses on the hero’s relationship with his mentor and father figure, fan fave Victor “Sully” Sullivan, and has him searching for a legendary lost city that will ultimately take him to the Arabian Peninsula and the vast wasteland of the Rub’ al Khali Desert, also known as the Empty Quarter. (Said legendary lost city has been known by various names, including “Iram of the Pillars” and the “Atlantis of the Sands”; click the link for more backstory.)

Seems like we will have to wait for the VGA’s on the 11th before we get any further information. The Official Uncharted Website has been updated but doesn’t have a lot of information just yet, Naughty Dog promises that more info is coming soon. I wonder how this game is going to look with support for full high-resolution Stereoscopic 3D?

    I bet Nathan isn’t even a Drake. They did kind of hint at that in the first game.

    Can’t wait to see what they do with blowing sand on the desert levels. Looking amazing in my head already.

    I can imagine Uncharted 2 level Train Wrecked with snow storm replaced by sand storm. I’d be just yellow more granular snow, sand, there you have it.

    I”M BAAACCKKK!!!!!! Man this wasnt a good yr for ps3 exclusives but what a year. So many good games from Heavy Rain to God of freakin War 3 evn Blacks Ops was good. Next yr will be evn better with the release of ME2 finally coming to ps3 to Infamous 2………

    Now lets get back on topic. All i gotta say about Uncharted 3 is GOTY. Move over Gears 3, Uncharted 3 will be the best game next yr(hoping that is does come out nxt yr). Even was only rite that they went to the desert. U1 was all jungle, U2 was snow. Bet money U4 will be in the air LOL! Man im so pumped for this game. There suppose to be revealing the trailer at the VGA’s and for those who didnt know. Naughty Dog will be showing a live demo on Late Nite with Jimmy (dont kno his last name but hes a real funny guy)

    Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Now ppl will see that it deffiitly isnt uncharted 3 on dec 12th lol but im mad as much i want this game to come out i think this will hurt resistance 3. Uncharted has gone through a greater success and well resistance wont seel much if this comes out close to it. I mean look at kz3, r3, lbp2 infamous2, agent, and well a crap load more now uc3. I mean come on. Sony needs to be smarter.

    When is Nathan Drake going to stop flying? Every airborne craft he gets on crashes.

    If I was a pilot and Nathan Drake walked on board I’d have to say “Nope! Get off the plane Drake!”

    Nathan Drake and Crashing Planes is like Peanut Butter and Jelly lol

  21. #22 by derrickgott007 on December 9th, 2010 [ 871 Points ]


    I hope Nathan makes some reference to the crashes in UC3, such as “Can I ever make it to where I’m flying, please?” or “I’m taking a bus next time”

  22. #23 by Ace on December 9th, 2010 [ 23465 Points ]

    Nathan seriously needs some flight school.

    Anyone else notice the car on fire next to the plane? Im guessing there is much more to this picture than just a plane crash

    Luke… drake looks just like you

  25. #26 by Luke on December 11th, 2010 [ 27382 Points ]

    I am still pissed I didn’t get the role in the Uncharted movie Oly

    @Kennygk Not sure if that’s a car to be honest, looks like parts from the plane.

  26. #27 by kennygk on December 11th, 2010 [ 26128 Points ]

    @Luke I’m !00% sure there’s a flipped over car to the left of the naughty dog symbol
