With all the amazing footage shown at the Video Game Awards and later on the Jimmy Fallon Show, we know how fantastic Uncharted 3 will end up looking. But how about the story? Sony have released the fact sheet for Drake’s Deception as well as a few great looking screens.

Drake is back on the trail of his ancestor Sir Francis Drake, leading him right into a conspiracy spanning centuries. Drake must now trek through Europe and across the Middle East in search of a lost city known as “The Atlantis of the Sands”. The game will also delve into the history between Drake and long time partner Sully, giving gamers an insight on how these two came to be friends. Players will also be able to take on enemies in a number of new ways, from hand-to-hand combat against multiple enemies to new stealth options. Naughty Dog will be introducing new physics in the game and new environmental effects with the desert such as mirages and sand that drifts, displaces and flows realistically.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is set for a November 1st, 2011 release date and should be an easy contender for Game of the Year come 2011.
