Behind The Scenes With Uncharted 3

Remember the recent announcement that a new PS3 exclusive reveal was set for the day after the VGAs? Well, good news, bad news. The bad news is – it wasn’t Starhawk. We thought it might be Starhawk (our source said LightBox’s follow up to Warhark is definitely ready for a reveal), but it wasn’t Starhawk. In fact, it wasn’t a new game at all.

By the looks of things, the event in question was just Sony showing off more of the recently announced Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. That’s the good part.

Here’s a behind the scenes look at the guys at Naughty Dog talking about the next chapter in Drake’s legacy as a new cultural icon. Warning (or, you know, whatever the opposite of “Watch now if you want to know more about the game!” is), we do get to see some new stuff going on in the background.

  1. Awesome video and I love it’s 2 player production which did this. They also did the entire first season of Penny Arcade TV, the brilliant behind the scenes on Infamous 2 and much more.

  2. I’ve never felt such an urge for news about a game as I’m feeling now for Uncharted 3. Wathced thsi yesterday, very interesting stuff, Especially love the gameplay-glimpse at 2:14, looks amazing!

    • I just can’t wait to play Uncharted 2! I should be able to pick up a copy rather cheap now.

      • Ah, I envy you. The first playthrough of Uncharetd 2 is amazing, whether you play it in `09 or `10.

      • …But when you play it for the 10th time in 2 weeks, you start noticing the faults… like the mirrored glitched reload rifle animation…

  3. Very interesting, I love seeing how stuff like this is made and I love insights into the Devs.

  4. Haha! Love the YouTube clip “capture” above. Can you replace the strapline with “dealing with the death of a loved one is hard”?

  5. Match made in heaven: the people who make it love making it and the people who play it love playing it!
    On a side note, I hope after U3 they can find a space in their time to go back to Jak and Daxter, and it’s not just good memories for them…..

  6. “our source said LightBox’s follow up to Warhark is definitely ready for a reveal” That is all I need to know to keep the spirit of Starhawk alive. But as you said even though that is a bit depressing any trickle of U3 news is pretty epic

  7. It’s going to be a long year for me on an Uncharted3 news blackout

    • Drake and Sully settle down together and adopt a Somalian boy. There we go. No need to avoid spoilers now.

    • Actually, Chris, it’s a video about ND and there’s close to NOTHING about the new Uncharted 3. There’s a smattering about the VGA trailer if you’ve seen it.

      More than anything, it’s a once-again fascinating insight into one of the finest devs around.

  8. Naughty Dog are Pixar of the videogame industry.
    P.S.: Look at 5:23, it seems to be mo-cap for shaking off clinging enemies (Spider. Why did there have to be spiders)

  9. ah i love behind the scenes work. its always a joy to see someone who loves there work doing there thing

  10. I can’t wait for this & Arkham City. Uncharted 2 is probably my favourite game ever.
