It seems that Naughty Dog just can't wait for the Spike VGAs this Saturday. After Entertainment Weekly spilled the beans on Uncharted 3 earlier today, Naughty Dog themselves have now put out a press release giving us all the juicy details.
What we now know is that Nathan Drake will be searching for the mysterious "Atlantis of the Sand" where, along with mentor and BFF Sully they will battle against "occult treachery of a shadowy clandestine organization and its ruthless leader". Thank you, press release, for that generic statement. Naughty Dog has also listed several key features of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
- Bigger set pieces and more explosive adventure, driven by Naughty Dog's signature storytelling and cinematic presentation.
- Competitive and co-op multiplayer return with brand new experiences and massively expanded feature sets. The UNCHARTED universe provides online players with a unique Action Adventure multiplayer experience, bringing the cinematic elements of the single-player campaign into multiplayer.
- Nathan Drake can now take on opponents in more ways than before: hand-to-hand combat with multiple opponents, contextual melee attacks, and new stealth options. UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception also features expanded and diverse traversal moves with deep gunplay.
- Naughty Dog introduces new physics, visuals, and environmental effects. UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception features new innovations in sand, fire, smoke, and water dynamics and effects. UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception will be playable in Stereoscopic 3D.
Eep! Deep gunplay?! Why?! Gunplay is what ruined Uncharted 2 for me. This game should not be a shooter, I mean how many people did Nathan Drake murder in Uncharted 2? Uncharted 3 should focus on the platforming and puzzle solving, maybe some hand to hand combat, but not gunplay.
Of course what's all this without stuff to look at? So the folks at Sony's PlayStation.Blog have also released three new screenshots
