Could Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Take The Franchise To Britain?

PushSquare: "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is set in the desert. We know that. But Naughty Dog's never been the type of developer to set a game in one specific place. The Uncharted franchise is known for its globe-trotting (perhaps loved all the more for it), and in the game's debut teaser trailer, there certainly appears to be a number of hints that the UK is on Nathan Drake's agenda."

Some good observations. However, it's worth noting that a ton of countries accept British pounds as legit currency. Here's something I stole from a web site that explains it better than I can:

The Isle of Sark also uses the pound though it is largely independent because it remains a feudal holding of a single hereditary family who holds absolutist power. Still, it is a great vacation spot.

The British Overseas Territories of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands also still use pounds. These are small island groups in the south Atlantic near Antarctica. Speaking of that icy continent, Great British pounds are legal tender in the British Antarctic Territory, although only about two hundred people live there, as scientists studying the Antarctic. Several other British Overseas Territories use a currency called the pound but is not the same as the Great British pounds.

The Gibraltar pound, Falkland Islands pound and Saint Helena pound are separate currencies, but their value is tied closely to the pound sterling. These islands are great tourist destinations and Great British pounds are easily exchanged for the local pounds and many places on the islands still accept the British pounds. Pounds are also used on the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. These are two British naval bases that were ceded to Great Britain centuries ago and are still active and used by the British military today.

I didn't actually know that! I'm going to assume that the other converging observations point to the UK though.

Interesting stuff though. Good post.

Considering that Lawrence and the three other explorers written in the journal all come from the UK, it's likely.

There's also one of two known daggers of Lawrences in the UK in a museum. It's a golden dagger, not the one shown on the table, though Naughty Dog may rewrite that bit just for the sake of making it easier for them to reference the dagger he's seen wearing in most photos.

The other dagger is owned by a private party in San Marino, California. I can't find any reference to what it looks like.

Good article on the daggers:

ND(Nathan drake) will be all over. I just saw the 8 minute IGN break down video of uncharted 3's 35 second vid. Apparently he's going to be going through a hell of a lot again so I wouldn't be surprised. The uncharted series is just pure awesomeness/epicness/ anything good. I remember when people were comparing Uncharted to tomb raider....yea...slaps got handed out too..

Exactly. There are all of these discussions about the game taking place in the dessert, however, as we saw in Uncharted 2, Naughty Dog will most likely take us to multiple different settings. Just think about all of the different settings there were in U2.

golsilva3499d ago

exactly there will definitely be multiple settings in uncharted 3, but obviosuly the desert setting will be the main one. like near the beginning of uncharted 2, there might be a city scene involved, most likely in Britain. If so i wonder how the setting will be done such as fog.

its between Saudi Arabia and oman what we call Rub alKhali "Empty Quarter" there's lost city in there called Aram. The Qur'an (1,400 years ago) mention about this city and allah send wind to punish them bucz they belied Hood, the city found in '90

"6: Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with 'Aad - 7: [With] Iram - who had lofty pillars, 8: The likes of whom had never been created in the land? 9: And [with] Thamud, who carved out the rocks in the valley? 10: And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes? - 11: [All of] whom oppressed within the lands 12: And increased therein the corruption. 13: So your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment."

They came to Puerto Rico to shoot some pictures and video when they were making the first game…

I wonder what a modern day urban setting would look like in Uncharted, with cars on the street and people walking around.
