Well, it sure has been an interesting morning, don’t you think? About 3 hours ago, Entertainment Weekly were the first to reveal what you probably knew was coming anyway – that the next UNCHARTED game has been in development here at Naughty Dog and it will be called UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. We're really excited (and can now breathe a sigh of relief) to have announced UNCHARTED 3 -- we're absolutely looking forward to working hard on the game over the next year and telling you all about it along the way! You can get further details about we’re able to currently share from my blog post that just went up on the PlayStation Blog. A brief, top line look at all the info that’s been released so far is copied below.
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 him 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 our 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.
Our announcement has now put a lot of things we’ve been planning carefully for a long time in motion, and you’ll start seeing a lot of that over the next few weeks. As you can see on the Entertainment Weekly article, you’ll want to watch the Spike VGA 2010 show on Saturday, December 11, for more UNCHARTED 3. Beyond that you’ll start seeing a ton of content being placed on the PSN Store, many, many articles and more. We’ll be sure to point you to all the new news that is coming out, just in case you somehow happened to miss it. I don’t think that will be much of a problem… Be sure to check back there on NaughtyDog.com or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to stay up to the minute on everything and anything UNCHARTED 3.
