Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Preview - PS3

Naughty Dog, famous for developing the early Crash Bandicoot games and the Jak and Daxter series, are back again, this time with a third volume of critically acclaimed adventure/platformer, Uncharted. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is due for release on the 2nd November, but is only available on PS3 due to Naughty Dog being a part of Sony.

Series protagonist Nathan Drake is thrown into a lengthy quest sending him and his mentor Victor Sullivan into the core of the Arabian Desert in search of the 'Atlantis of the Sands'. When Drake learns of the city's terrible secrets, things turn against him and he's left in a fight for survival, confronting his greatest fears. It looks like there's going to be a twist in the tale, too, with voice actress of Elena, an in game journalist, Emily Rose speaking to Ology said this about the ending, "The final scenes of Uncharted are definitely worth all of the play time and the stuff that we wrapped up before I finished my last part of Haven when I was back home was literally Nolan and I looking at each other like, "Oh my gosh, are you kidding me? That's amazing. I did not see that coming."" Make of that what you will.

New to Uncharted 3 are improved physics, graphics and environments. New combat moves have been introduced as well, along with new stealth actions and new opponents, offering a more complete package when it comes to conflict. Naughty Dog have kept the amazing cinematics that they have become famous for, however, and claim to have even managed to incorporate them into online multiplayer, too.

There is now a new collection of online game modes, with the possibility of having up to ten player competitive multiplayer. 5 vs. 5 Team deathmatch, 2 vs. 2 vs. 2 three team deathmatch and 8 player free for all are all available.

So far it looks promising for the game, with ShopTo marketing manager Philip Driver stating on the topic of the games pre-order figures, "The interest in Uncharted 3 is awe-inspiring," and that was back in 2010! Amazon recently announced that Uncharted 3's pre-order figures are better than those of Uncharted 2, which have increased by just fewer than 500%.

People have been won over by the beta, so if that's anything to go by it looks like this game is certainly worth getting.
