Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
If you’re an Uncharted fan you might already know that this November Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will be coming out, November 1st in America and November 4th in the UK and Ireland. What you probably don’t know is that you could be playing it as early as the 28th of June. Anyone that buys Infamous 2, or is a PlayStation Plus subscriber, will have the chance to play a multiplayer beta of the game. Don’t worry, if you don’t want to buy Infamous 2 or pay to become a PlayStation Plus member you just have to wait until the 5th of July when it becomes available on the PlayStation Network.
This time around the plot focuses on Drake and Sully as they try to find a lost city known as the Atlantis of the sands. The game takes place in a desert settling. Naughty Dog chose to have this game based in a desert as a challenge, as sand is extremely hard to animate. The attention to detail shows and has really paid off, visual the game is a masterpiece. Also the addition of a split screen multiplayer mode pushes the franchise forward and sets it up to be as successful as the previous two instalments.
Many features have been added to the game, including the ability to fight more than one enemy at a time and automatic ammo pick up. The AI has been improved greatly; Drake and Sully now function as a team rather than simply a player and a computer. The AI becoming more intelligent works against you as well, now enemies can form groups to attack you together.
All signs are pointing to this being one of the best games of 2011, but we won’t know for sure until we get to play it ourselves. What do you think? Leave a comment and vote below to let me know what you think. Also don’t forget to subscribe.
