Uncharted 3 – Drake’s Deception: Comic Con video released
The team behind Uncharted 3 – Drake’s Deception has a video out that shows the voices and likenesses of the characters. The panel showcases Drake in the section “The Well”. There’s an octagonal secret entrance and Drake, Sully, and Elena remove it after some verbal exchanges between Drake and Elena. While the first half of the video doesn’t have the raw excitement, suspense, and action hardcore fans equate with the Uncharted series, and by extension its sequel Uncharted 3, the Comic Con panel chose to highlight the verbal exchange between the three characters as an example of taking character dialogue to the next level.
Previously, video game’s storylines were relegated to the background. Now, they are becoming core elements of the game. With Uncharted 3, the focus is also on how the characters’ dialog and actions/reactions are made central to the storyline and interwoven into the game experience. If Uncharted 3 delivers on this key focus, it definitely will set itself further apart from its competition. Check out the full video to get more of the nuances that set the Uncharted series apart from similar franchises.
