The embargo's lifted on Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception press coverage and as expected the accompanying media is ace.
The third game sees Nathan Drake adventuring to Arabia's Rub' al-Khali desert, following the footsteps of T.E. Lawrence in search of their prize in the Atlantis of the Sands, alternatively known as the city of Ubar, Iram of the Pillars, and the City of Brass.
According to Kotaku, Deception's exploration of the desert will feature "sand in all of its forms, drifting, blowing over the dunes, the displacement of sand, how it flows, sandstorms, mirages, heat haze-all that you would find in the desert."
Naughty Dog's main goal for the third game is to improve the 'cinematic experience', it's said, and Drake's packing new moves including backwards climbing, brawl-style combat and contextual melee.
There are also plenty more "humanizing" tweaks and touches to the way Nathan behaves in the game world, including more tangeible interactions with the environment such as Drake holding onto a stair railing during a run to steady himself.
