Gamersmint: Naughty Dog released some screenshots for Uncharted 3 recently and we have noticed something on one of them which suggest that Uncharted 3 is going to have singleplayer coop missions where you can team up with a friend.
uncharted visuals having coop will test the PS3 to the limit
Hopefully since you are always with at least 1 person in the games.
Actually not always. Uncharted 1 & 2 both had their momements when ND was alone. I think Uncharted 3 will also. Campaign co-op takes control of the story and what happens to the characters, which is bad IMO and can affect the story in a negative way. I don't think U3 will have campaign co-op. Other than this loose rumour, there no other indication that it will.
A separate co-op campaign is ok with me, as long as it actually has a story and isn't a bunch of random missions like Uncharted 2's
ps3 has no limits. No need for ps4 even.
PLEASE! look, i'm a big fan of the PS3 and Naughty Dog, but that isn't what they meant. of course the PS3 has limits. i don't think we are close to that limit yet, but it certainly does. what ND was referring to was the fact that they can do anything they want on the hardware edit: on the PS4 comment. i think Sony are going to attempt a 10 year lifecycle 'without' a crossover. to put it another way: a 15 year lifecycle with a ten year crossover. the MOVE and 3D is specifically in place to allow for this
I think with the state of the economy game companies are in no rush to see a new generation of consoles. Considering all three have plenty of life left. Even the Wii continues to chug along. I have never been more satisfied this far into a gaming generation than I am with this one. Game developers continue to push limits and release a crazy amount of games. Uncharted 3 proves that the PS3 has yet to hit it's stride. In another 2 years we may see the graphical limit but for right now developers continue to push further.
It is possible since Drake and Sully are the mains of UC3. Can't wait.
yeah, looks like they fixed it though.
On-topic, that would be awesome but I am not sure how it'll work out, if there is coop, won't there be the need of someone accompanying Drake at all times? That's possible though since there was someone accompanying Drake at all times save the final boss battle and few sections throughout UC 2 aswell.
It would be an awesome addition to an already superb game no doubt.
its called add another character for the player leave story the same
I think it's just a screenshot from a different angle.
if you'll notice it focuses on Sully and if he wasn't a playable character in the game, I don't see a screenshot like that released for him. Maybe ND teased it intentionally but right now it could mean anything and like you mentioned, a different angle also is possible however I would bet that it's because Sully is a playable character in the game.
This is probably just a camera angle change to show Sully saving Drake while Drake is climbing up. As I recall, UC2 had quite a few places where the camera angle would change mid-gameplay.
"Curiouser and curiouser". 10 points to the first to tell me who said that?
I don't mind it would be nice for co-op to be included but might just be a section playable as Sully while Drakes off cahooting.(or just a screen from an angle)
Either way I am so hyped for this and can't wait for the multiplayer.
EDIT* and..........the phantom disagreer is back, hey there little buddy!
@ mantisimo Wasn't it Alice from Alice in Wonderland who said that?
10 points dude!
Don't understand the disagrees for my above comment but hey if you like to click without commenting then I guess thats OK by me.
LarVanian, yes it was
LIES ND has not said anything, this game is getting overhyped way to early
The game is certainly not getting overhyped. This particular feature is getting overhyped. People believe you need to have co-op in everything now for it to be a complete experience or some crap like that. Well I say bullshit. Uncharted's story line is a single person experience, and it should be left that way. I personally believe this is just a screenshot from a different angle is all.
Well, when it's the sequel to a game that received several "Game of the Year" awards, people are going to notice that the game exists. :)
I hope it dosen't. I'm sick of Co-Op in games, it ruins the overall single player experience. I don't mind the online co-op that was in Uncharted 2.
I'm sure I'm not the only person who dosen't want to be stuck with a partner for the whole game.
The screenshot could be of a short in game cutscene, maybe you get to control sully while Nathan is doing something.
I agree. I don't think a game as story centric as Uncharted should have co-op in the main game.
I just bought a PS3 Slim with Uncharted and Uncharted 2: AT and I've never played a better game. I love my new PS3. How can Naughty Dog improve the visuals when UC2 already looks so good on our LED-TV. I'm so happy guys. Sony: make.believe. ;-)
Play MGS4, and there you have the better game.
Well thats purely opinion. Although I agree, I love MGS4 more so than Uncharted 2. Both are very amazing games though. Having a PS3 only means you get to play both, as well as other great games.
Play SoTC and you will have played the best game ever made:D Just my oppinion though.
Why so many disagrees on this site? It's just my opinion.
You'll get used to it. I see you just joined. As you can see, I mentioned my opinion as well and look what happened there. I don't care really.
ah ok thanks for the quick info. yes I just joined.
Theres a sad group of trolls out in force today Fox that's all, but if you ain't got anything coming up on your platform of choice except kinectimals 2 then you do turn a little bitter.
campaign co-op for uncharted sounds dodgy but hopefully they can pull it off
I want U3 without co-op :(
Me to, at least for the main campain.Im all for separate coop missions though. Do you think it will have splitscreen for these coop missions and mp? It might, guerilla managed to put in killzone sp and ND basically made the ps3 dev tools i think they can pull it off.
hope no i like the coop that they did in 2 where is was just different objectives they should keep that
i think very possible. since they said UC3 focus on relationship between sully and drake. a big hint.. hope that doesnt spoil single player experience tho...
Since the game is 3D, they have two produce to sets of images anyway, I could easily see how ND could put that in there :D Online co-op is rubbish anyway, so I don't care about that ;P.
I hope co-op is there, but that screen-shot could be a cut scene.
I hope theres split screen coop. I hate playing with people and passing the controller back and forth
Indeed, thats how me and some of my friends did it. I did work, but with splitscreen it could have been even more awesome. I wonder if someone will ever make a ps3 game with 6p splitscreen.
Only game that can play 6p that I know of is madden :/
Sorry guys but Naughty Dog have confirmed that U3 will not have campaign co-op..
Maybe a second coop mode would be good, but keep it out of the main campaign. It would restrict the gameplay too much.
That's exactly what they're doing - Keeping the same type of co-op they had in U2 and just expanding it. One of the naughty dogs confirmed in an interview that they wouldn't be putting a campaign co-op in U3
.... I see no evidence that supports this claim.
Actually enkeixpres here's some solid evidence that supports my claim: "We have to say it stung a little to hear that there's still no cooperative gameplay in the story mode, but if Naughty Dog amps up the competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes significantly in Uncharted 3, we'll get over no story mode co-op." http://www.gamefaqs.com/boa... http://uk.gamespot.com/ps3/... So that's GAMESPOT and GAMEFAQS both confirming there will be NO CAMPAIGN CO-OP IN UNCHARTED 3!!! There are also many more that have interviewed ND in person that have revealed the same thing!! Hope this ends all these silly rumours going around!!
I wasn't replying to you.. I was replying to the article.
co-op for the main campaign would suck.
The problem with co-op story campaign is each character must always be there throughout the story. So, no matter what happens in the story, all the co-op characters have to be around. As long the story is written that way, it will work. Another method that I think is silly is have multiple Drake "clones" when playing co-op like Dead Rising 2. I think that takes me out of the story when there are multiple Drake "clones" when playing in co-op mode. Also, the AI for other co-op characters need to be good enough to help but not too helpful if played solo. That is trickier to do as several co-op story campaign games have proved. Will be interesting how ND can do it if co-op story is in U3.
It WILL have online co-operative play.
Yes this is TRUTH. But it probably wont have the singleplayer campaign playable as co-op. I most certainly hope it doesn't.
Why do I feel like I've seen a similar/identical headline submitted a couple dozen times since this game was announced?
get the co op in there, add to the replayability, why not
Actually, I kinda hope that it doesn't have main-story campaign co-op. I feel like it'll take away from the story itself, even if it is just at certain parts in the game. Either way, it'll be an awesome experience.
there will be no campaign co-op its been stated by ND themselves however the co-op part of the game will be improved greatly apparently made more epic, longer and more focused
i find it hilarious that someone could draw such conclusions from that picture...but on the note of co-op, there was co-op in uncharted 2, im sure they will bring it back...
I hope that co-op is the same as Uc2 with more levels (like an entire game's worth) that's rele all thats needed to make me happy.....splitscreen would'nt b in Uncharted's best interest
This would be a very welcome feature. And it almost seems like a shoe-in what with all the rumors and potential. If not i know the game will be amazing none-the-less.
In context, co-op is a real plus. Uncharted def lends itself to this sort of play. KZ3 is also taking a step in the right direction, there is nothing better than sitting down with someone who is also good at a game and working through challenges together. Interesting if true, can't wait.
