Lawrence of Arabia Inspires Next Year's Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
from Kotaku

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will draw inspiration from the life of T.E. Lawrence's days as an archaeologist in the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula when it hits the Playstation 3 late next year, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The magazine reports that the game will play with the theme of deception while also focusing on Nathan Drake's relationship with father figure Victor "Sully" Sullivan. Of course, the game also has the daring treasure hunter doing what he does best: Looking for some lost and fabled loot.

This time around Drake will be hunting through the Rub' al Khali Desert searching for a legendary lost city in the sifting sands. Naughty Dog tells EW that they chose the desert (a location rumored since last month) because they wanted to deal with the challenge of animating the fluid landscape. They join Jager Entertainment and Spec Ops: The Line in that desire to play with sand animation.

There's a bit more in the story, like the inclusion of "backward climbing" and the ability to fight multiple people at once. Naughty Dog also promises to continue their work on the game's still-not-quite-all-there multiplayer.

I'm pretty excited that they're using Lawrence as an influence, the man did so much in his lifetime, and he contributed a lot to the world. I'm eager to see how all they intend to incorporate him, beyond some of the more obvious ways.

Currently, I'm reading the Seven Pillars of Wisdow: A Triumph by T.E. Lawerence and it's incredible. It's really huge book, but its worth it. I think it's about 140 somthing chapters. Yeah pretty big and I am soo excited to see how they are going to incorporate his work into the game. As long as they don't go full throttle on just his work, I'm fine. But still, pumped for it! Very Happy
