There's no Mark Wahlberg soul crushing news for those "in the videogame know" this time, but this time things regarding the UNCHARTED franchise as a whole are looking up as the inevitable 3rd game has finally been officially revealed. Titled UNCHARTED 3: Drakes Deception, Nathan Drake is indeed venturing into the desert ( just as rumors would have you believe prior to today from several sources). The Arabian desert to be exact, Nathan will be accompanied by returning character Victor Sullivan as they look for the "Atlantis of the Sands."
- 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.
Bigger, better, and with nearly 100% less water, what do you think so far? Is the desert a good direction to take the franchise?
