Does Nathan Drake Look Older in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception?

GB: "We are thrilled and over joyed by the revealing of Uncharted 3. Not only that, we broke some exclusive information for you guys. I was just observing the screens for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and I found that he looks a bit older. I mean Naughty Dog has always potrayed him as a young and an acrobatic character, but he seems to be aging. Check the screens above."

Yep he does, he reminds me of Sam Fisher froom Conviction.

Dark_Charizard2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

It looks to me like Drake is nearing his end.

ExplosionSauce2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

It's not Naughty Dog's fault that Ubisoft changed Sam Fisher to look like Nathan Drake's older brother for some reason.
Haha :P

Focker4202845d ago

He looks alot more rugged and aged a bit. Less like a pretty boy and more of a wise (and badass) man. Based on the one line from the trailer it sounds like hes taking things alot more serious than in the past.

I loved the younger Drake, but I'm really liking where the newer Drake is headed. It adds a ton of depth to his character. I wonder if Elena will be making a return (I sure hope so)

Red_Orange_Juice2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

you can say he's been through a lot

Dark_Charizard2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

He's nowhere as badass as the AMERICAN BADASS


Now that's badass!

Focker4202845d ago


Really?? Fake wrestling is the best you could come up with?? People still watch that crap?? Are you 8 years old or something??

On a serious note did anyone notice the jeep to the left of the plane?? I wonder where that came from....

Dark_Charizard2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

Wow, what's the need to get personal, huh kid? I mean at least he's more real than a video game character.. lol!

And just fyi, the average wrestling audience during that era was 18-36. Get your facts straight, Gamer Who Lives In A Screen, aka Focker420!

If you've not gone for a wrestling event, do now.. they probably come to your location often. Or do you live in Indonesia? LMAO. It's funny how a physically weak, spectacled worm like yourself is making fun of The Undertaker..... hah!! Pathetic.

zeeshan2845d ago

He does look older than UC2's Drake but then I saw this picture...

Maybe, it is the shadows and dirt on his face that makes it look as if he has aged.

I want Drake to stay the way he was in Uncharted. Cheerful, goofy and yet brilliant!

ThanatosDMC2845d ago

It's just the growing facial hair.

inveni02844d ago

I thought he looked older and his face rounder.

Just found a huge crisp blow out screen of Drake from UC3.

He looks old and pretty worn from the headliner image but the same from UC2 here. Idk. Jaw still looks a tad bit heavy though.

HeavenlySnipes2845d ago

then it is officially the best looking game ever. Look at the smoke and the sand. Holy Sh*t!

Pandamobile2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )


It's a press render..

On topic:

How do you walk away from a plane crash like that and still look that sexy :P

LF912845d ago

He doesn't really look that much older if you look at the image Dante112 posted, He just looks like his filled out a bit and hit the weights.

ExplosionSauce2845d ago

Real people can gain and lose weight.
So you never know :P

R2D22845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

@Pandamobile - ask Steven Segal

Nathan put on some weight - I would too if there were no competition.

UC2 epic train battle<UC3 epic plane battle

hot4play2844d ago

Anybody else seeing the parallels between Uncharted and Jak & Daxter?

Jak1/U1 - tropical setting, "light" atmosphere
Jak2/U2 - city setting, "darker" tone
Jak3/U3 - desert setting, matured characters, possible big revelation to wrap up the trilogy

He does look older but I hope they dont make him age too rapidly. I still want Drake to live long. Without him theres no Uncharted....unless...

Cenobia2845d ago

Imo, he "looks older" because he is dehydrated, sandblasted and sunburned, which would kind of make sense.

I do not think they are purposely aging Drake to eventually kill him off with old age.

phatak2845d ago

Rage_S902844d ago

lol i feel your pain dont forget things like rage and dead space gona be the hardest goty of all time

Andronix2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

He does look different. But then he looked slightly different between 1 & 2. I guess it's down to different lead artist. But yeah, from these shots he looks a bit worst for wear. Less handsome, different features. Looks like he is gurning.

Redlogic2845d ago

I am going to bet that it is just the graphics engine has had an upgrade giving Drake a bit of an older look but not necessarily a intentional one.

AKS2845d ago


Nathan discovers that rather than a decendent he is actually a clone of the original Francis Drake, which is causing him to age rapidly. Luckily, Sullivan helps him steal nanomachines that save his life after Nathan defeats his evil twin brother and survives an unexpected viral infection. True story...


Rage_S902844d ago

lol you've been playing too much mgs my man

if thats even possible....

lazysey2844d ago

Thus given the sub heading "Drakes Deception"

halocursed2845d ago

The jaw looks a bit heavy in Uncharted 3, Drake is definitely showing signs of aging but the game is going to a bundle of wholesome awesomeness with candies and probably better than pr0n!

norman292845d ago

Is the sun pink? Of course he'll look older the game is being released years not days after the last game, he aint no Tomb Raider who looks the same each time.

Prcko2845d ago

yep,well it's future right?
so he needs to look a litle bit older

MidnytRain2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

This is true. Anyone who saw him in Drake's Fortune will probably say he's in his mid-twenties. In Among Thieves he looks as though he's in his late twenties or early thirties; although that might have just been the visual upgrade or slight redesign, but he does look different. This makes sense for UC3.

SuperStrokey11232845d ago

Yep, i was thinking the same thing. I guess we will find out if that is true right away it appears though

DoomeDx2845d ago (Edited 2845d ago )

Lol give it a few days, and we will get another ¨We want the old looks back!¨ petition

Like they did with Infamous 2

electricshadow2845d ago

Ehhhh, I don't think so. Compared to inFamous, Drake's look hasn't changed as much as Cole did when they first announced Cole's new look. Drake, so far, does look different, but not drastically. Either way, I like the way he looks.

BYE2845d ago

If that happens, I will personally drive to the petition starter's house to slap him in the face.

Focker4202845d ago

Cole was a massive change from the original. From how he looks, to his clothes, and the way he sounds. It was a completely different person.

Whereas this is the same exact Drake, just slightly older. You wouldn't look at him and go thats not Nathan Drake, like with Cole in InFamous 2.

rezzah2845d ago

In the case of Dante (DMC), NO ONE hated the fact that his look has aged. Why? because it was part of the storyline.

But when you look at DMC Reboot...Its like comparing a apple to a banana. Where as the age difference comparison would be like a bigger apple to a small one.

BkaY2845d ago

nah... difference is they changed bad ass cole to pretty boy cole...

and how come its same dude with difference face... thts just plain stupid... but here case is different...
