Update: Naughty Dog Announces Uncharted 3!!!

In what is the single best piece of news to hit all year, Naughty Dog, via Entertainment Weekly has officially announced Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.  The game will take place in the Rub’ al Khali desert on the Arabian Peninsula.  Drake will be searching for the lost city of Iram of the Pillars, AKA “Atlantis of the Sands”.  The storyline will also involve Drake’s mother and father somehow.  Apparently the game’s title is supposed to be a clue about how what Drake believes about his past isn’t exactly true.

Update #1:

Well that didn’t take very long did it?  I’ve got a massive update for all of you including the official announcement trailer.  So let’s jump right into the details.

I already mentioned the game’s location, but I didn’t touch on anything else.  Naughty Dog says they’re putting just as much effort into the online multiplayer as they’re putting into the single player.  They specifically said they want to compete with the big boys in terms of multiplayer.  They didn’t offer any other details than that.

Returning characters include Nathan Drake, of course, and his good buddy and mentor Victor Sullivan.  Will any of the female leads make it in, I’m almost positive they will.  Naughty Dog isn’t talking though.

Finally the latest bit of news we have for you is the projected release date “TBA 2011”.  Naughty Dog says one way or another Uncharted 3 will be ready for retail at some point next year.

Now sit back and enjoy the official teaser trailer for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

Oh there is just one other small detail.  U3 will fully support high-resolution stereoscopic 3D.  This will likely be the game that convinces me to go buy a 3D TV.  Uncharted plus Avatar, count me in!

It’s now time to check out all the new media, including a placeholder box art.  Enjoy and leave a comment already!

I can’t begin to tell you how exciting this announcement has made me.  I’m literally giddy at the moment.

  1. Damn right I’m excited! I’ll be in heaven if it’s as good as Uncharted 2! Now imagine if it’s even better!

      That’s awesome. The music was wicked too. Talk about a teaser. I can’t wait to see live action. Apparently there’s going to be a demo for all of us to see come next week. It would be an AMAZING Christmas gift if Naughty Dog released that to the masses in the next few weeks. Talk about a hype explosion.

    1. Not really sure myself, but with this series I’ve always wondered what a true co-op mode would be like. They played around with the idea with U2, but it would be neat to have a more fleshed out story mode or something. Whatever they do, I’m taking the day off of work for this one.

  2. God damn I hate teaser trailers!!!!

    Haha,
    But yeah! Back when everyone was playing MW2 online I was enjoying Uncharted 2’s online. I really enjoyed it so nice to see they want to make it even better!

  3. Sweet stuff. I actually played a bit of UC2 yesterday to get me back into the game. Had no clue how to play it since it had been a year but I can’t wait for this one either.

    1. Steven, play an all new game it’ll be that much easier for you. I tried to do something like that with Gears and we all remember how that turned out, don’t we ;)
