Looking back - UNCHARTED 3 at E3 2011

As the launch of the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta draws near, we look back on our E3 single-player campaign reveals.

June 24, 2011

We only just wrapped the very hectic, very awesome E3 Expo just a couple of weeks ago – and we’ve been working tirelessly on putting the finishing touches for what I can only believe to be the mouth-frothingly anticipated Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta. We’ll have a full, in-depth look at everything and anything you want to know about the Beta within the next few days, so you can get the scoop before it launches.

Speaking of which, the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta will be available for all owners of specially marked copies of Infamous 2 and for current PlayStation Plus members on Tuesday, June 28. We’ll be sure to give you a not-so-subtle reminder when it’s ready to be downloaded.

Enough about the Beta! I’m here because we’ve been so busy, we didn’t get a chance to give you a quick look at all our single-player reveals from the week of E3.

We had two massive reveals to kick off the week. Putting together an E3 trailer is one of the most hectic, but also one of the most rewarding tasks we take on in the weeks before the show. This time around we not only had to put together an awesome, cinematic trailer, but we had to also put it out in 3D for the SCEA Press Conference! If you happened to have missed viewing the Uncharted 3 E3 2011 Trailer – and clearly, you did miss it, as the video hasn’t hit 1 million views yet – I’ve embedded trailer below for easy viewing.

 

As part of the opening of the SCEA Press Conference, Evan and Christophe got on stage to introduce the on-stage demo of The Cruise Ship. Christophe also mentioned how we’re partnering with Subway to give away the entire Uncharted 3 Multiplayer experience in October, prior to launch. More on that as October gets closer. In the meantime, check out this pristine, direct feed video of the Cruise Ship demo.

Later on during the week, the PlayStation.Blog grabbed me to do a quick, totally live interview about the Cruise Ship demo, multiplayer and a question submitted through Twitter. The PlayStation.Blog was good enough to repost the video last week.

Finally, we released a bunch of Uncharted 3 single-player and cinematics screenshots – you can check out the full set on our E3 2011 Flickr set here.

Whew! And that only covers our single-player campaign reveals at E3!
