Uncharted 3 confirmed for 2011

[UPDATE] Drake's Deception will be set in desert, inspired by archeological adventures of T.E. Lawrence; 3D support confirmed; First live demo on Jimmy Fallon Dec. 13; first trailer inside.

For months, rumors of a third uncharted game have percolated, thanks to premature product listings and overly imaginative artists. Now, though, the game has been officially outed, thanks to a preview in Entertainment Weekly magazine.

Nathan Drake is headed to Arabia for his next adventure.

The official title of Naughty Dog's next game will be Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, and it will arrive in late 2011. Though details were light on the game's story, it will reportedly focus on the relationship between Drake and his avuncular mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan. This time around, a search for a lost city will take the wily adventurer to the Arabian Peninsula and its bleak Empty Quarter.

The magazine also reported the game's plot will be partially inspired by the exploits of famed British adventurer T.E. Lawrence. Said exploits won't be of the military variety that earned him the nickname of Lawrence of Arabia, but rather the archeological career he had before World War I.

That's not to say there won't be any shooting in Uncharted 3. Gameplay details dropped in the article include expanded co-op and multiplayer modes, improved reverse climbing, and the ability to shoot multiple enemies at once. As rumored, much of the game will be set in the desert, with the developers at Naughty Dog putting a visual emphasis on sand.

[UPDATE] Sony has now officially announced Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, and has confirmed it will support stereoscopic 3D out of the box. The game will also feature the ability to engage multiple enemies in melee combat, and will also sport new stealth abilities.

As with its predecessors, Uncharted 3 will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. The game will debut alongside the first novel based on the series, Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth, but not the film based on the series. That project, directed by David O. Russell and starring Mark Wahlberg, is set to shoot next summer.

[UPDATE 2] Via Twitter, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon producer Gavin Purcell is now saying a live demo of Uncharted 3 will be conducted on the show on Monday, December 13.

@shahabgb Dude you really need to do some research and varify your facts. PS3 has had less hardware problems than 360 and it took less time to correct them as the problems for 360 still continue today. Developers you mentioned did not say the PS3 had problems only that it would be a bit more diffictult to develop for the system(Activision was famous for saying that...Bobby Kotick). GT 5 took so long because of how large the development was they added over a 1000 cars, this takes time to make and get the licensing for. The multiplatform games you mentioned actually look and run better on the PS3. Take Final Fantasy XIII as example... MS released PS3 images for the game claiming this is what the 360 version looked like and SE had to apologize for it, this game did not look anywhere near as good as the PS3 version. You have been blinded by you bias toward the 360 this makes you a fanboy. Please do what Ex-Darkblade asked and leave us alone!

@mrhagane Also, you forgot to mention that GT 5 took so long because they were adding more than 1000 cars to be used in the game. As GT tends to use real cars the problem can lie in licensing taking time and just making the cars in the game itself.

"dmc4 , assassins creed , red dead redemption ... you will see the difference completely..." did you know there are really huge different capability between two console? one game developer a spend more than a year just because to make one xbox game, especially if you want to make games for 2 console. of course they don't have time, so they need a balance between the 2 game on 2 consoles to save the time. any way most of multiplatfom game (especially "dmc4 , assassins creed , red dead redemption ...) the different score from the review only 1 or 2, so your comment about "you will see the difference completely" in longer be valid. Do think ubisoft, capcom, and 2K are stupid developer game? they can balanced the game for 2 console, even they must face so called "ps3 hardware problem". anyway IF there is a complete different between 2 game in 2 console, ubisoft, capcom, and 2K WILL NO LONGER RELEASE A GAME FOR PS3. lol :D c'mon!! stop become liar and give a TRUE fact.

@shahabgb the story of ps father? On April 26, 2007 It was announced that Kutaragi would RETIRE (NOT FIRED) and instead take up the role of Honorary Chairman. Taking over his position will be current SCEI president and CEO Kaz Hirai, who had been promoted to president and CEO. (source wikipedia)

@shahabgb "i was a ps2 fan , but ps3 no thanks just for you know i am an old school gamer from atari's firs console" lol :D you doesn't seem like "an old school gamer", from the way of you think, you just like a kid who hate ps3 because your mom doesn't let you to buy one well your age must be more than 20 right now... but shame... your opinion and your mind just like a KID who can't see the fact "6 years for gran turismo 5 and thats what realised still like ps2... isnot about ps3 s hardware problems?" would not in making games, making it fast or slow depends on the ability of developers team and the producer? ps3 hardware problem, ah c'mon!! Your comment was not accompanied by the fact that clear if you know? lol, if ps3 has a "hardware problem" so that every single ps3 game will spend more 5 years to make one game? Your comment was not accompanied by the fact that clear if you know?. it is funny, GOW 3 spend more than 4 years because santa monica studo want "upgrade" the game but "NOT HAVING HARDWARE PROBLEM". even naughty dog only spend 2 year to make uncharted 2.

Can't wait Uncharted is just an amazing game and it looks like they just keep making it better and better :] haven't played Uncharted 2 yet but want to get it before 3 comes out. but what about the girl? will she be in it her and Drake were funny in the first one :D one thing I like about Uncharted is they do a nice blend of humor with the action/seruisness. (epic fail on spelling to tired to fix) either way REALLY looking forward to this sounds like its going to be another great Uncharted game.

Why are we having console wars on the page announcing Uncharted 3!! I also own all three consoles and both hand helds. The PS3 and XBox both have their pros and cons. They are both amazing though. XBox live is better than PSN and achievement points are better than trophies but PS3 has MUCH better exclusives and is a blu ray player. Graphics are awesome on both systems. So lets all calm down and get pumped for Uncharted 3!!

@shahabgb, what the hell? Now you sound like a little kid. One, you don't make any sense. Second, your so called "facts" on why Xbox 360 is better than PS3 are completely false. Please go away. Many of us don't like to argue with kids. Just to give you a warning, I can report on your trolling in this comment area. So, if you don't want to get reported, please leave us alone.

@ blackace "It's better to be a PS3, XBox 360 and Wii owner in 2011. lol!! I'm definitely getting this game." ************************************************************************************ 2011 spells 3DS, not Wii- the immense amount of exclusives and third-party support for that handheld device is astonishing. (And the same exact thing should be said about the PS3, although this deviates from the intentions of my post.) "Fixed"? =P

@shahabgk I sure wonder how much it can take for you to realize multiplatform games are ported. Even Resident Evil 4 could've looked more amazing on PC, yet it was ported over from the console versions. Now please, go play on your system rather than acting like a douchebag online. - Really gives a great picture of you as a gamer and your so praised system when you argue more than you play on the system itself. Grow up and understand that we can all like whatever we prefer. Too bad if it's too much for you to realize. In either case, I'm going to ignore you from now on, tired of your immature behavior.
