Uncharted 3: World of Deceit Concept Art

1 min read


Over the weekend some concept screens for Uncharted 3 were found on Albert Ng’s personal blog. According to Albert they were simply some concept art he put together for his architecture class and were in no way indicative of the next version of Uncharted.

But can we believe that? According to PlaystationLifestyle Albert Ng works for Tyler West Studio who are responsible for conceptual art for popular AAA videogame titles, they have done work for Sony, EA and Activision to name a few so it’s not a big stretch to think that he has put together these screens for Sony and Insomniac (Doh: Naughty Dog).

So believable are the images that Amazon France actually used it as their placeholder image on their site.

So that’s all the reasons why these images are true and the only thing that leads me to think that they may be a school project is that he made quite a big mistake on them. If you check the letters in “World of Deceipt” on the first image you will see that the last 3 letters don’t have that scratched look like the rest of the letters do.

There is no way that would pass Insomniac’s [Naughty Dog]’s quality test so either these are incomplete concepts or they are in fact just for a school project.

But then again why would an architecture student need to list possible traps and gameplay elements in the last image? Possibly it’s related to the class and possibly not… who knows.

    The story has been confirmed as a fake.

    “The big story this morning has been the apparent revealing of Uncharted 3: World of Deceit. After Amazon France posted a listing for the title along with some concept art, stories have run wild on the game, the setting, and whether the concept art and title are true. Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer has made a comment about this topic.
    For those that have hope this is true, you’ll be sadly disappointed. The concept art, title, and everything shown is not a representation of Uncharted 3 in any way, shape, or form. Everything linking back to the Uncharted world is fake and it was only used as a source of inspiration.
    Arne Meyer posted on the NeoGAF forums:
    “The guy used the Uncharted universe as the basis for mock work for one of his classes and even listed it as such where the pieces were posted: Uncharted 3 pieces I did for architecture class.
    So, totally fake and I didn’t even have to say so. Nice try websites who should actually read the sources of their scoops and do some smart investimagating before posting. It’s not rocket science.”
    Just as Uncharted 3 was called here, the gaming world has been a victim of deceit, but the small glimmer of hope that it was true shows how excited gamers will be once the title is formally announced in the future. For the concept art that caused this commotion, you can view all of it in the media gallery located here. ”

    Did you not read the article? It pretty much says all of that and then goes on to discuss whether it could still be possible and he is just covering up the issue.

    And all the ‘concept’ artwork is listed in the article as well?
