Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception info. …we don't need a better or more alluring introduction.
Thanks to details gathered from the Official PlayStation Magazine (via SystemLink ), we learn more about the gameplay and environment; in addition to what we already knew (Drake in a dynamic, realistic desert, for instance), there's the following:
— Drake and Sullivan are in the Empty Quarter, looking for the Iram Of The Pillars, a kind of Arabian Atlantis.
— Bike sections are all but confirmed. There's a newspaper cutout in the teaser trailer that mentions motorcycles, and Naughty Dog says "We have a strong tradition of vehicular gameplay, and we try not to repeat ourselves."
— Villain Katherine Marlowe is part of an secret order that dates back to Queen Elizabeth I.
— "Of course, there are recurring characters from previous games." (Elena, Chloe…?)
— A new melee system, with features like Drake picking up a bottle from a table and smashing it over an enemy's head. There are also new stealth moves and mechanics.
Last but certainly not least, we take great solace in knowing that Naughty Dog doesn't intend for Uncharted to be a trilogy. If it were, it would have to end with this game…and we'd be sad. But they say Drake's Deception will "most likely not be his last outing" and Naughty never thought of it as a trilogy.
Sooooo good to know. 🙂
