Holy balls, Nate! Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has just been revealed in a just-published Entertainment Weekly report.

It will take place in the desert, as previously thought, and will feature Nathan Drake as he searches for a lost city which will see him at he Arabian Peninsula and the vast wasteland of the Rub’ al Khali Desert, with deception being a key theme to Uncharted 3’s story.

“When we first came up with the idea of sand, you see everyone’s eyes light up here and go, ‘Yeah, that’s going to be really hard — let’s do it!’,” said Naughty Dog main writer, Amy Hennig.

“We’re a bunch of nerds. We just look for something that will be a technical, artistic challenge, and allowed us to push into an area of the world and history we’ve never tapped into before,” added co-president, Evan Wells.

Story will also centre on the relationship of Drake and mentor Sully.

More time will also be spent on the game’s multiplayer, according to EW, and its co-op. But Wells says U3 aims to take on the “big boys.”

““We want to take on the big boys of the multi-player genre,” he said.

“It has become something here at Naughty Dog that will become an important part to all our games.”

The EW report also has the game confirmed for a late 2011 release.

The first teaser trailer for Uncharted 3 is below. It will get its full world premiere at the VGAs this weekend.
