Get out your party hats folks because Uncharted 3 is a comin’.
Titled Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception, the new episode in Nathan Drake’s adventures will take place in a setting that involves having a lot of sand in your underpants. A lot of information has been spilled, and we have more of it posted for you after the jump.
We also have a short teaser trailer and some BIG images. Hit it.
Here’s a bit of info taken from the announcement on the Official Playstation Blog:
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 â€œAtlantis of the Sands,â€ 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 Drake 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 acclaimed 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.
Want to see some awesome images that can be enlarged to the size of a small moon? Thought so. Have fun.
This image below was massive (6656 x 2510) but it wouldn’t let me upload the whole thing, so instead, if you want the really, really, really big one, you can get it here.
Here’s another one that’s not so big, although I can’t say the same for Nathan Drake who looks like he ate too many cupcakes. Desert or dessert? You tell me.
Fun times. Below is the teaser video. Don’t expect lots of details, but I’ll bet that if you watch it in HD and pause it a whole bunch of times you will find something interesting, here goes:
Even better yet, for all 12 of you out there with 3DTV’s, you will be happy to know that Uncharted 3 will be releasing with full-blown 3D HD goodness. Even if you don’t have a 3DTV, don’t let that stop you from using it as ammo in your next fanboy war.
The following was also posted in the reveal on the US Playstation Blog:
UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception continues to evolve all of the core principles we laid out for the UNCHARTED franchise, most important of which is creating an unmatched and extremely compelling interactive cinematic experience. In addition to having a compelling story and authentic characters that all of our fans can relate to as key facets to creating this type of experience, we push ourselves and the capability of the PlayStation hardware through constantly refined gameplay mechanics and technology innovation.
Our dedication to creating the best interactive cinematic experience can be seen in our last two games – UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune and UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves. We’re especially honored and humbled that both titles have been so successful, selling nearly 8 million units combined and earning more industry awards and accolades than we can keep track of. We’ve set the bar very high for us to outdo the past successes of our previous UNCHARTED games. We’re looking forward to taking on this challenge to top ourselves and create a truly unforgettable interactive cinematic experience that everyone can enjoy.
Excited? I’m so damn excited I think I’m going to go back and play Uncharted 2 again. So, what do you guys think about what’s been shown so far?
