Some details about Naughty Dog and Drake's Fortune

The recently not-so-secret Naughty Dog title for the PS3: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune has come up on the latest issue of Game Informer. Here's what the folks at the NeoGAF forums have discerned from the article.

  • Winter '07 release
  • Single-player, apparently
  • So far, 50 minutes of cinematics (GI said that the game's presentation actually makes the PS3's price not as difficult to understand... or... something. It's impressive, they say)
  • Animation scheme allows for unique ways of doing things -- an example used was for taking cover behind a pillar. There were nine screenshots of Drake hiding behind the same pillar, each time in a completely different stance. The final game is said to have 3,000 animation modifications for doing such actions.
  • SIXAXIS allows for balancing stuff, like crossing a narrow log or whatever
  • Drake will visibly grow tired when running, shown in his running animation and facial features. How neat, I grow visibly tired from running too!
  • Soundtrack, graphics, special effects... all are looking insanely gorgeous.

Game Informer sums up the premise and gameplay this way: "It's Die Hard meets Indiana Jones, with gameplay that goes back to Prince of Persia and Tomb Raider and gun segments like Gears of War. Ultimately however, it's a new genre that's unclassifiable at this point." They talked about their hands-on time with the game, too. It sounds like a lot of fun. Probably because I'm biased about exploring ancient ruins. Awesome stuff. Looking forward to this one!

5. I really look forward to this game!

This is the difference you get in games when developers actually care about creating something unique that takes advantage of the systems hardware unlike the crap that EA puts out!

With this coming from Naughty Dog it is going to be worth my $60.
