Sony and Naughty Dog have just released the reveal trailer for Uncharted 3‘s multiplayer beta. The trailer highlights the customization and gameplay variety present in the next in the Uncharted franchise. The song behind the trailer gets creepy…
Drake’s Deception will, as the trailer indicates, offer up a massive host of guns and equipment. Everything like completely customizable, which has become an absolute key to success in today’s battle for multiplayer gaming supremacy. Naughty Dog has clearly seen what other series are doing when it comes to personality, and they’ve elected to put their own spin on the action with Uncharted 3. From the preview for the multiplayer reveal written for PlayStation.Blog by Naughty Dog’s Community Strategist, Arne Meyer:
New to Uncharted 3 multiplayer is character customization. Both heroes and villains skins will have a hundreds of customizable parts, from accessories to shirts and pants to a deep weapon customization feature. Even named characters, like Drake or Sully, will get plenty of options to make your character your own. Hand in hand with customization is our emblem editor. If you’ve worked with emblem editors in other games, you’ll be pretty familiar with the one we’ve implemented in Uncharted 3. Our emblem editor extends the level of customization of your online profile with hundreds of decals, three layers, rotate and scale functions – you’ll see your final emblem on your character and even possibly in the environment during matches.
This preview spends a good deal of time describing the new features, locales and gameplay that Naughty Dog is looking to achieve with the multiplayer portion of their hotly anticipated sequel. According to Meyer, one of the key focal points in development has been set pieces and size, two factors that Naughty Dog is hoping to expand and highlight.
If the multiplayer trailer above is any indication, the studio is absolutely on the right track. This multiplayer beta begins on June 28th, 2011.
