According to the Sony marketeers, Uncharted 3 will offer “bigger set-pieces and more explosive adventure” which seems a bold claim considering the landmark action and storytelling offered by the second game of the series.
We’ve also been promised deeper multiplayer aspects with more cinematic elements making the move across from the single player modes.
Perhaps most interesting are the promises of an expanded combat system: “hand-to-hand combat with multiple opponents, contextual melee attacks, and new stealth options” are all on the table. That sounds like perhaps Naughty Dog have been playing with RockSteady’s Arkham Asylum and noticed how free-flowing, multiple-opponent combat can be done really well. The stealth aspects will also be very interesting if done well (and we’re sure they will be).
Finally, the press release suggests updated visuals, even though Uncharted 2 remains one of the best looking games available. New particle and fluid effects could look even better in stereoscopic 3D!
