The story focuses on the hero’s relationship with his mentor and father figure, fan fave Victor “Sully” Sullivan, and has him searching for a legendary lost city that will ultimately take him to the Arabian Peninsula and the vast wasteland of the Rub’ al Khali Desert, also known as the Empty Quarter. (Said legendary lost city has been known by various names, including “Iram of the Pillars” and the “Atlantis of the Sands”; click the link for more backstory.)

Exactly. Not only do they make an amazing game, but they tell a great story too. U2 was truly an interactive movie for me. Can't wait to see the locales that will be visited in this one.

Day one purchase, I don't even need to hear the details.

Too many systems and games....not enough time or money!

Fantastic news! ND could take on the challenge of setting the game in an empty room with blank, white walls and it would still be a winner.

Of all the game series I enjoy, Uncharted is by far the safest bet on quality. No need for reviews or even previews as I don't want to ruin the experience. All I need to know is the release date!

Naughty Dog is remaining cagey about the release date for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, but expect it to drop around the same time that the first Nathan Drake novel, Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth, hits next fall

uncharted-3

My mom works for Sony, and she brought home a copy of "Starhawk BETA"
I quickly slipped it into my trusty PS3, and started playing.

Great point. I was totally oversaturated with previews before Uncharted 2 released. Set pieces like the moving train would've been that much more "OMG!" the first time I played had I not known it was coming.

Amazon lists these details:
"An interactive cinematic experience that blurs the lines between games and Hollywood films.
Nathan Drake's journey will put you through new challenges and take you to stunning locations around the world, from a derelict chateau in France, to the merciless Arabian Dessert.
Epic single player campaign with evolved signature UNCHARTED gameplay.
A new breed of Action Adventure Multiplayer that brings the exciting cinematic elements of the single-player campaign, into the multiplayer.
Experience the thrill of UNCHARTED in stereoscopic 3D

A search for the fabled "Atlantis of the Sands" propels fortune hunter Nathan Drake on a trek into the heart of the Arabian Desert. When the terrible secrets of this lost city are unearthed, Drake’s quest descends into a desperate bid for survival that strains the limits of his endurance and forces him to confront his deepest fears.
"

Pretty cool to hear it'll be in 3d. If anyone will do the tech justice, it's naughty dog!

Amazon also has it listed with a Dec. 1, 2011 release date.

Day one purchase, and with that I'll probably go on a media blackout for this one. I did for U2 a bit, skimming articles and not reading sections that seemed to contain too much info.

I think I may have to do the same. I did the same as you for U2, but there were parts that I would have loved to been in awe of had I not seen something on it already (like the train sequence Zook noted).

There are plenty of other games that I've put more hours into, but no game has topped the experience I had with U2. Can't wait.

I don't ordinarily like to say this, but I totally called it!

The explorer in whose footsteps Nathan Drake follows this time around is T.E. Lawrence:

Which is exactly what I proposed back in this rumor thread:

Based on those criteria, I'd like to see an Uncharted set in Northern Africa (Egypt, Morocco) or in the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Jordan). Not sure who the explorers might be, though (T.E. Lawrence?).

Looks like I get my wish!

Heh, going back even further, I also wanted the next game set in Africa :

Quote:


BTW, if our resident Naughty Dogger jlanier is still around, I have a free suggestion for the plot of UC3... this time have Drake and company follow clues left by Ponce de Leon in a quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Maybe Drake's mom also had the exploration bug in her, and wants to find Drake's dad who disappeared looking for the FoY. She convinces Drake to help her out, and he wants to help her stay safe though he doubts the FoY is real. Throughout the adventure, he does the muscle work, she does the mental work.

Their mother/son quirky back-and-forths would provide the bulk of the character development, with a few added side characters as well. Scully argues with himself as to whether to make a move on her, but in his humorous grumpy way, he often decides against it since she's fat and wrinkly. The two insult each other (for laughs) for most of the game.

Maybe one action scene is a flashback as they talk of mom teaching a six year old Drake how to fight bullies (dad was thought dead by Drake and mysteriously is absent). You control Drake in this difficult encounter. Another interactive flashback is a daring mini-adventure featuring Drake's mom as a young woman, where she also meets Drake's dad who was her friendly adversary at that time.

The present quest for the FoY would have new enemies of course. For instance, in a side trek into Africa they can fight off bands of pygmies who shoot poisonous blow darts at you, and include encounters against enraged, charging elephants, tigers, gorillas, etc. where you must use tranquilizers to put them down. Standard thugs with guns looking for the FoY would be frequent as well. Maybe take Drake back to the ocean and have a vehicle battle between high speed boats and pirate ships.

The final area can be guarded by a three, acrobatic Amazonian bosses who are hard to target due to their gymnastic skills, and can heal themselves by taking a dip in the fountain. Perhaps Drake is beat down, and only after his mom drinks from the fountain does she become young enough to take on the whole tribe with crazy acrobatic moves of her own (you distract the Amazons somehow so she can gain the upperhand). Eventually she saves the day. Scully is of course overly excited to see her in her new condition when the battle ends; of course she rebuffs his advances.

Having earned their respect by defeating them, the Amazons ask that the young mom stay as their sister. They show that they've captured Drake's dad, who found the fountain and is now young himself. The curse of the fountain is that for the price of eternal youth, those who drink of it must stay near its area of influence for eternity or they will die.

After an awkward reunion, Drake's parents say that it wouldn't be natural to be stuck in one spot forever, being the wandering spirits that they've always been. Together at last, they hug and kiss, and give wise words of encouragement to their son. They then choose to bravely head out into the sunset where a crying Drake, held back by Scully, knows that they will meet their fate after disappearing over the horizon.

Wow, Fall/Winter 2011 is going to be incredible -- Gears 3, Uncharted 3 and possibly ME3.

Update: There will be a live demo on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, Dec. 13.

Rather than the announced Arabian setting, I actually was referring to your post mentioning North Africa when I said I suggested Africa as a setting as well. I guess that's what quotes are for, to avoid confusion. Next time I'll use them.

damn it.. it's going to be hard to go full black out on this for a year.. I wish I hadn't seen that falling building part at E3's presentation for U2... It was insane playing through it but it would be mind blowing without anticipating it.

Another stellar year for PS3 and games it seems. R3, KZ3, U3, BF3 -- hehe interesting pattern going on there..
