Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has a single-player campaign that is roughly 8 or 9 hours long, reports reveal. The quest is full of amazing set-pieces that definitely pushes your PlayStation 3 system to the limit, so it will definitely satisfy many. But others think the single-player game is much too short for a full-priced $60 game.
Of course, the game also has a fully functional multiplayer mode that is sure to keep many busy for much longer than the single-player game lasts, and will surely inject the series with long-term replay value.
However according to reviewer Nathan Irvine from GamesRadar, who revealed the shortness of the single-player campaign, the game also includes a much harder difficulty setting called the “Crusher”. This difficulty mode does not unlock until after you beat the game once, so players will be unable to fully complete the single-player without playing through it at least twice. And the tougher difficulty is likely to give the single-player quest a bit more length.
The Uncharted 3 release date is fast approaching! The game will be released exclusively for PS3 on November 1st, 2011 in America, on the 2nd in Europe and Japan, and on Nov. 3rd in Australia.
Here’s a new trailer for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception showing of the “Desert Village” gameplay from the single-player campaign.
