Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – E3 2011 Preview

All of Naughty Dog has been looking forward to tonight ever since we announced Uncharted 3 with Entertainment Weekly and showed it for the first time at the SPIKE VGA show back in December. And just a few minutes ago, if you were watching the SCEA Press Conference on any of the live streams, you go to see what we’ve been working so hard to be able to show you!

At the SCEA Press Conference, our Co-Presidents, Evan and Christophe, took the stage and with just a short intro, launched into the first live demo of Uncharted 3 ever shown publicly. The brief Cruise Ship sequence shows just a small slice of one of the most challenging scenarios we’ve concocted for any of the Uncharted games – as a massive, moving environment of the Cruise Ship gets turned on its side mid-battle, Drake has to scramble for his life. This sequence showcases the next level of our physics and water technology – and you’ll see video of this sequence later this week.

The Cruise Ship isn’t everything we’ve got up our sleeves – Naughty Dog is bringing more content to E3 2011 than we ever have before. We’ve also brought a ton of PS3 systems all hooked up with a massive chunk of the Uncharted 3 competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes – those are all on the floor of the SCEA booth for all E3 attendees to check it out. Do drop by!

Speaking of multiplayer, at the SCEA Press Conference, Christophe announced that PlayStation and SUBWAY struck a partnership that will allow Uncharted fans throughout the United States early access to the COMPLETE Uncharted 3 competitive multiplayer experience. This partnership starts in October and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with more details later on this year.

We’ve also prepared what I think is one of our best trailers to date of any of the Uncharted games. Check out the Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception E3 2011 trailer above!

One more thing, if you happen to come by the SCEA booth this week, we’ve giving out a limited number of E3 exclusive Uncharted 3 t-shirts! The awesome t-shirt design was created by the excellent Cory Schmitz and this is the only time you’ll be able to grab a t-shirt with this design on it. Each t-shirt will also come with a very special, very limited PSN voucher code good for one of three Uncharted 3 in-game items once the game ships in November:

  • The t-shirt design on a torso item for your customizable multiplayer character
  • Mystery Skinned Weapon #3
  • Mystery Skinned Weapon #4

I’m also going to be attending several of the reader meetups and events throughout the week and I’ll be bringing a few t-shirts and codes with me – keep an eye on the Naughty Dog Twitter to see where I’m headed.

If you remember, we handed out t-shirts and codes just like these back at PAX East and they were extremely popular, to say the least. If you can’t make it out to E3 this year, don’t fret!

Have a great E3 everyone – I’m looking forward to a crazy, yet awesome week working the show floor!

  • Holy crap, you guys know how to put a trailer together. Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Did anybody else get the chills like I did?…

  • I’m getting a 3D tv *just* for this game.

    Already saving up for that :P

  • Sharingan_itachi


  • This is just going to be awesome. Best sequel ever and most probably game of the year!

  • Gonna be game of the year for sure. But side note, shes gonna be pissed when she finds out what hes really afraid of(hint: was told at the end of Uncharted 2). Its clowns, he hates clowns.

  • Day one buy and my personal GOTY already!

  • WOW! Most impressive game that has been announced so far. I don’t see any multiplatform or Xbox or Nintendo exclusive beating this, only another PlayStation exclusive.

  • How do you guys pull it off? This trailer looks amazing! The game is a day one purchase for me, I love you guys at Naughty Dog so much, will you marry me?

  • this game is going to be FREAKING AWESOME!

  • He’s the baddest man on the PlayStation, ladies love to call him Nathan!
    He’s Kratos with a gun, mother f***er you know the drill! GAME OF THE YEAR!

  • Nice to see Chloe and Elena are back!

  • Game Of The Year 2011 – Called it!

  • Jawdropping . It seems more like a movie than a game . Anticipating !

  • Ohhhhh my goshness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chloe and Elema are back! I heart NaughyDog forever. Thank you for making my day!

    I need a tissue. ;_; I want that game! I WANT THAT GAME!!!!!!!!!!!


  • NaughtyDog* Oh my bad. >_>;

  • The90AngryRonin

    Chloe! Elena! Sully! Nate! Evil British woman! Evil British men! Naughty Dog might as well control the world now, they don’t need to anything more. UC2 was quite possibly the greatest game I’ve ever played and they’ve improved on it. That’s like improving on perfection. It’s not possible but ND has done it.

  • Don’t fret? I live in a tiny little town where nothing big ever rolls through. Argh! Exclusive stuff like that kills me.

  • Definitely a Day One purchase! I cannot wait to play this!! :D

  • A+ 10/10 ..like you guys didn’t already know :) Naughty Dog hasn’t made a bad game…. ever. The scenes in the desert / on the horse / hanging from the freakn plane….. look amazing. #1 game on the PS3, and even after all I’ve said about this game.. it’s still better than that. Maybe the best game (technologically and in terms of pure action/adventure FUN) of the past 5-10 years.

    PS: The gameplay of the “titanic” looked amazing as well of course, great tech guys, great work. Can’t imagine how much work goes into making all that happen (with the boat flooding and the walls swaying/turning/breaking etc…

    PPS: Please make more respawn team modes for the online… like Socom or Counterstrike…. (which are very popular and stand out from ALL the other shooters out there for those reasons…)

  • Amazing cinematography ! its just WOW !

  • Elena!!! I am NOW officially pumped for U3! :)

  • *clicks -LIKES- Tridon’s quote* :D

  • How do you do that without people just going and buying Subway, getting the multiplayer and then not purchasing the full game? Is there an activation code required that if you don’t use it by the start of Novemeber your multiplayer ends? I’m curious on how that works.

  • ClassicSpyroFan

    HOLY SHOOT!!! Now thats what I call epic! cant wait for the Beta!!!!

  • I seen Drake riding a horse… Controllable? Sweet!

  • UC3 amazing underwater scene WOWed me for sure!

  • the trailer is mindblowing for me even tho im not the biggest uncharted fan out there.just says it all on how much this game is gonna pick up.just the trailer is gonna bring a lot of hype.

  • This is definitely day one buy and GOTY material

  • Uncharted saves the Sony E3 conference, again!!! I’m going to get Sony’s new 3D tv plus Move package to play U3. Although, hmmm, I do need a bigger screen for Nate.

    OH, Chloe back?!!!!! Yay!!!!! You are not stupid, Naughty Dog. Not stupid at all.

    Sorry to be a jerk, but couldn’t you have Evan be the spokesman instead of Christophe? Christophe is better eye candy, but seriously, hard to understand the accent. I’ve been listening to Christophe for years and still don’t understand 50% of what he says.

    Ps: Sony blogger, I’ll completely understand if you censor me. I know it’s not cool to be impatient with thick accents, but geez, this was a press conference in my home town and here we only understand hispanic accents.

  • MUST HAVE. Glad to be a PS+ member heard the beta was 6/28 for PS+

  • Wow. Watching this makes me half excited that I will be playing this game this year, but half angry that this franchise is almost niche. This is the game by which all other “realistic” games should be judged, yet so many gamers have no idea just how beautiful and well rounded a game can be. I hope Sony’s marketing department shoves this game in peoples’ face as if it were Barack Obama in an election year.

  • @45 what do you mean about it being a niche

  • cant wait i can see it know game of the year
