OMG I hope it's Atlantis! it'll be amazing.
dam i was going to say this and @ bad its not a huge part of under water swimming sine uncharted is made of sections one being finding the place two being getting to the place three destroying the place and or getting out
Uncharted 3: Lost in new york!! lol! how original huh?!
The only one country with 22 different cultures & Languages. It will suit PERFECT for 50GB bluray
one problem he bump into kratos, and the shit hit the fan
nah, they'll join forces. Drake steals the teasure while kratos beheads his enemies.
Yeah, im pretty sure Pope has it right. They would be fast friends. Destroying everything in there wake. And stealing all the treasure in the process. The only problems i can see them having is who gets the girls. xD
Drake is to much of a smart ass for Kratos and him to be friends. Scenario: Drake- Sup Kratos, you do something new with your hair? Kratos- *RAGE!!!!!!* And they lived happily ever after
haha true.. drake's attitude would make kratos mad real easy
What doesn't piss Kratos off?
Hold on, Atlantis and Antarctica are the same thing so that's only 3 choices :) http://www.apollonius.net/a... http://www.helium.com/knowl...
I desperately hope it's Atlantis. Too much of a chance the supernatural element would be giant spiders if it's other places like the desert. You can argue mummies but still. And I would hate* if there were spiders in one of my favorite series, let alone one of the most realistic looking series. Atlantis would be cool though.
Atlantis is stupid, how are you supposed to shoot underwater? And dont give me BS about places being air locked. Imo, Egypt would be the definite best place. Its got everything an adventurer wants, i mean, just look at the Indiana Jones and Mummy films. Plus a few mummies here and there for the added 'supernatural' uncharted trademark effect will work quite well. We've seen what naughty dog can so with water/jungles, then ice/snow, lets see how well they do with sand and snowstorms. it will be beautiful.
Do you think that's actually an issue?
i agree i mean atlantis would be cool and great if they can make it work but egypt is just so much easier i would love to fight mummies
how bout we just go to all of these places and make it a 25 plus hour game?? like drakes looking for another tresure and he whent to all of these places finding clues hell add italy and whatever else u want it can happen?
Yeah, Egypt would be a pretty rad place. With all the mysterious and ancient culture, it would be a great place for U3 Another suggestion could be Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, or Inca civilizations(where they lived)
Dude, did you even play drakes fortune? There was Mayan/Aztec coming outta the ass.
I agree with you. Africa seems like the next place on the list, and Egypt is full of lore for them to exploit. The only thing is that it may be a lot like the movie "The Mummy" which isn't a bad thing since they were actually good movies. I just want new cast members, along with cameos from everyone else.
The problem with Atlantis is that it's under water...will you have a huge portion of a game under water swimming? Pyramids: too barren: not enough cover for shooting I think. Same with Stonehenge...only 1 circle of rocks. They did an amazing job of snow in Uncharted 2, but a doing it all in snow again in Antarctica (which has no buildings as far as I know) would be boring. Nope...I think they need to go to Greece or Syria...great ruins there and a lot more scope for combat.
@BadCircuit *The problem with Atlantis is that it's under water...will you have a huge portion of a game under water swimming? * Not necessarily. If Nate finds a huge underwater palace/castle that's still fairly intact and water free (like a big pocket of air), then there could be plenty of room to explore without him getting wet and that's where most of the shooting could take place. In Tomb Raider: Underworld, there's an entire level like that and Lara rarely gets underwater.
I agree...Syria would do nicely. Damascus, Aleppo, Crusader castle of Krak De Chevalier, ruins of Palmyra...and sand like one of the guys below suggested!
Alien artifact found that unlocks a portal to an ancient city on a abandoned alien homeworld.
But then the makers of STARGATE would sue!!! ;)
Never heard of it.
The movie where archeologists dig up an alien portal that takes soldiers to another galaxy?
The spin-off series that lasted 10 years?
The sequal series (featuring ATLANTIS on an alien world) that ran for 5 years?
I would not mind Egypt
i am hoping it is egypt too. there are lots of myths to use for a game plus it continues to have new elements added. uc1 did the best water and plants and uc2 did the best snow it is only right for uc3 to do the best sand and wind(sand storms). if they don't do that it would also be cool if they did something completely unexpected like going to japan. they can make it like the eye of indra were drake isn't facing anything supernatural just normal criminal.
Yeah Egypt would be the bomb! Mummies, curses, old tombs, pyramid exploring and just think how beautiful the sand would look.Considering the snow effects were insanely good.
Cool if they did something for like the Garden of Eden? I like what the_only_lol_king said too. You know what I really don't care just give me UC3! It will be amazing no matter what :D
God can your knees be any more raw than they are at the feet of Naughtydog at this moment in time? U2 is a pretty boring game. It drags beyond belief at about chapter 19 and won't let go. I am on my 2nd run thru, by this late in release, on the 1st one, I had beaten it no less than 10 times. Easily. The 2nd one is just down right dull at times. And the entire last section of the game is just ballz boring. The Monastery and stuff and the final battle. Oh my god how lame and boring and cheap is this stuff? I did like U2 and enjoyed it my 1st time thru but this 2nd time really took it all out of me. Thank god I started on Hard and unlocked Crushing after my 1st run thru cos' I couldn't stomach another session. As for locations in the 3rd, anything but snow and Atlantis. Two profoundly stupid ideas. Make it a desert. More than likely, with how generic things get with follow ups and given Naughtydogs past don't for 1 second think or rule out them taking Drake back in time or into the future. Wait and see. They have done it with all their games barring the ski game they made and the Way of the Warrior game.
Well damn, if it was that bad, why'd you play it twice? Just to be a trophy whore? Your entire comment is just negativity.
lol uc2 boring you might as well tattoo ms on your ass. only a 360 fanboy would say something that dumb just look at all the game has done and you can see why you're a joke. 96 on mc, over 150 awards and over 3.5 mil sold you don't do all that being boring and dragging on. run along kid we don't need idiots like you ruining a peaceful dissussion.
Second playthrough of a game you find 'boring'?? You're a masochist then?
EDIT @ below: Missing the point much? You played it - Didn't like it - Now your playing it again.
Seems a contradiction to me.
It's amazing that people here just can't accept an opinion or the fact the game didn't do much for "some" people. Get over yourselves guys. Just because I thought it lacked over the first one doesn't mean you all have to. Take your made up sales data and your critical praise and spoon feed it to someone who cares. "To redsquad above" I never said I didn't like it. It's good. Better than most games that come out but it wasn't as good as the 1st to me. I'm sorry you're having problems understanding different opinions.
anywhere will do, i will buy it day 1
already being worked on.. they don't need your opinion lol
maybe a sand place get some dynamic sand kinda like water ya know?
Atlantis would be great they could have a mission where your diving underwater and underwater shooting combat etc until you reach the city then they have like underwater caves/environments. Really this gen dont see enough games with playing in/with water with Naught-Dog talent I know they could do something amazing.
egypt would be excellent becuz of the tombs,exploring all 3 pyramids,probably having mummies or egyptians as villains
I love something like a whole new setting, epecially somewhere in Africa, e.g Saudi Arabia. Imagine Nate in those arabians clothes, talking to his camel through the saharah deserts and being witty to the locals. Naughty Dog mastered snow, now they should move on to sand. I love Naughty Dog games and the Uncharted franchise, its like the magic of Indiana Jones all over again. Diving underwater would rock too. :)
I don't care where it is, I just want it.
nathan drake is now the new indiana jones. the lost tomb of shambala lol, i hope they go with atlantis and or alien stuff this time, just to see how sarcastic he can really get with ufo stuff.
Indian temples scenery, bustling streets and ornate buildings. I think India would be a great place to set it.
Egypt will be a nice location but don't even mind atlantis if it was
I say start in Egypt and then go to Mexico and deal with all the pyramids. That could work the alien angle because of all the theories of how the pyramids were built. Or vice versa.
I don't want it to be like the first Uncharted where you pretty much go in circles for a few chapters.
I hope they'll do something more ambitious than Atlantis - that just sounds really typical, kind of overdone. A desert setting would be awesome, though.
Overdone?? What games have gone to Atlantis??
I'm sure he didn't necessarily mean games. But shitloads of movies and books have been set in Atlantis. Or even somehow throw the word Atlantis in there somewhere.
Of course. Everybody knows Atlantis - something like Shambhala is more of a mystery. They even put their own spin on El Dorado in the first game. I want them to surprise me, not take me through a place I've been before.
I'd imagine that ND will not tie themselves to any one location and that it will be more of a globe trotting affair. (Even more than Among Thieves.) Egypt would be a good end game location though. With Egypt you have compelling scenery, cool backstory potential, and curses because we all know that uncharted loves the supernatural. Atlantis is too much of an underwater Shangri La.
I think he should go to a few locations around the world to find more ancient treasures and stumbles upon a clue about Atlantis. But Atlantis doesn't technically have to be 'underwater'. What if it was frozen underneath thousands of feet of ice in Antarctica. They melt all the ice and its perfectly preserved underneath. I know its a little far fetched lol.
As I said above, TIME TRAVEL will be U3's hook. I just have a feeling. I hope not but damn I bet they'll do it. Given Crash 3 did this and JAK3 did this.
Time traveling will either turn out to be awesome or absolute crap.
U3 will take place in Area 51 :D
Since UC3 will probably come out late 2011 or sometime in 2012 then they could tie in the 2012 end of time theory. That would send Drake into Central America looking for some hidden Mayan secret that will prevent the world from ending. Maybe the clock just needs rewinding :-)
or looking for one of the mysterious 13 crystal skulls
That's it, I forgot about those. He'll have to go find them all to save the world
SPOILER FOR AC2 Thats exactly what happens at the end of Assasins Creed 2
What about Japan? Or Greece? And BTW Atlantas is a city. Just because Atlantas is under water doesn't mean more swimming. You could remain inside the whole time
Star Gate - SG1 anyone?
Atlantis looks like a real possibility since you have the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle to tie it to. damn cant wait !!!!
Somewhere in Peru or south america. That would be awesome Like with the aztecs... though #1 covered that to quite a degree
What I think would be cool would have some sort of alien artifact being discovered from the Sikhote-Alin meteor crash in Russia...and then like someone said earlier it somehow leads to Area51 to deal with badguys/aliens. Or maybe the ark of the covenant or noah's ark.although it would be a lot like indiana jones.
Picture this guys, Nate & Elena are in Egypt/Middle East/Africa looking for clues about King Solomon Mines. Then they stumble upon some artifacts that bring them to Rome/Vatican or any other place in Europe and this is really big - The Garden of Eden. It should be somewhere in modern days Iran/Iraq/Syria. This way, you get all the sand in Africa/Middle East, cities of Europe and finally lush garden/greens in the Eden. We are going to get some snow in Killzone 3 anyway. Sully will show up as usual, having retired in Morocco (Casablanca, maybe?). Eddy Raja apparently is not dead, working with Somalian pirates now. His boss will be the antagonist and at some point of time, Eddy will be Nate's ally. He still hates Nate's guts, though, haha. Sounds far fetch? Hey, so do El Dorado, Shangri La and Atlantis.
You guys are all really dense you know that? each uncarted game not only has an exotic location and mythical twist, but there is also a famous explorer that is matched up with the setting and story. you know, like Columbus, Magellan, Cortes, etc? your ideas need more thought behind them. like a Magellan/ Africa match would be perfect for the next adventure because Africa has varied climates, war torn countries, exotic wildlife, elephants, etc. and the grueling story of magellen lends itself to lots of mystery and speculation.
My vote would be towards either the search for the Holy Grail.
I want to be able to find the Ark of the Covenant.
