Epic Campaign Sets, New Physics For Uncharted 3 Multiplayer
We all know Uncharted is always about the unparalleled single-player campaign, but developer Naughty Dog has made it plain that multiplayer won't be ignored.
In fact, concerning Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, the talented studio has often said they intend to make it the "go-to" multiplayer game for the PlayStation 3. So what are they doing to improve and enhance this option, which began with the last installment? Check out a NowGamer interview with Naughty Dog game director Justin Richmond. He talks about using the "epic set pieces" found in the campaign and the use of "innovative in-game events" to set the multiplayer apart. He also confirms co-op support although we don't have any specific details as of yet. Then there's the new physics:
"For Uncharted 3, we are using a bunch of new systems, including one that lets Nathan Drake climb around on objects which are using physical simulations to determine their animation. This opens all kinds of possibilities for neat climbing and physical puzzle based gameplay. Traversable physics objects are just another layer that allows us to further ground Drake in his world. The more things in the game react how the player expects them to react, the more they can buy into what is going on and the more they feel connected to the character."
Um...is there anything these guys can't do? Even I might get into the multiplayer for this one. And that's saying something.
