Key Features of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, based on news and announcements made so far.

Advanced Melee Combat & Stealth
The advanced melee combat system allows players to brawl. Naughty Dog stated that players can take on many enemies at once and use the environment against their foes. Whether it’s “grabbing a chair, slamming an enemy into a wall or removing their gun and dispatching them that way” players can imaginatively combat enemies.

There will also be an expanded repertoire of stealth movement! For example, Drake can jump from above for a silent kill. This improved feature allows for “enhanced backward climbing” too.

New Weapons
Gameplay demos have revealed the inclusion of the Sawed Off Shotgun, a new weapon to the series. However, Drake still uses the .45 Defender from Uncharted 2, and an AK47. Sully also uses his signature Wes-44.

Multiplayer Expansion
The multiplayer element in Uncharted 3 is said to expand on what was established in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

New weapons and game types have been confirmed, as well as weapon and character customization! Co-op has again been split into three modes, Hunter, Adventure and Arena and new game modes include “Free For All”, “Three Team Deathmatch” and “Hardcore”. Medal kickbacks and power plays are new additions and the maps are said to be more dynamic on the whole!

The money that players earn during the story mode will be available for transfer to multiplayer, and vice versa. Gamers can make use of their cash to buy new weapons, as well as upgrades for online-play.
