5 locations we'd love to explore in Uncharted 3

Liked Uncharted 2's gorgeous (if overpopulated with weird Yeti men) snow environments? Of course you did. Well, there's potential good news for all those that love a bit of the digital powered stuff, because Uncharted 3 could feature a snow-covered Norwegian town according to a German website that's allegedly being run by Sony.

As much as we love the idea of catching hypothermia with Drake again, there are other mystical places we'd love the enterprising adventurer to explore. So if you've ever wondered what would happen if Nathan braved the pyramids or lost city of Atlantis, keep reading.


The legendary underwater city would be a perfect location for Uncharted 3 to visit. Mysterious and ancient, rendering it would give developer Naughty Dog a great chance to flex its programming mastery. That, and we just want to see a bit of Drake wet t-shirt action again. Don't judge us!

The pyramid strewn deserts of Giza would no doubt look incredible running on PS3. Naughty Dog have already nailed snow and water. But we really want to see it give sand a crack. Just imagine how tense having shootouts in the middle of a raging sandstorm would be. Plus, Drake could totally steal Tutankhamun's hat while he was at it.

Loch Ness

Searching for Shambhala is all well and good. But really, who cares about finding some precious stone when our heroic trinket stealer could be visiting Scotland's dreary climes in search of its scaliest 'and definitely not fake' citizen.

Lost's island

Because we just can't let go. And we're sure that golden stream is probably worth a few quid for whatever lucky explorer could stumble across it.

Meiks' front room

Seriously, I've no idea where my damn remote is. If there's any man you want braving the depths of a sofa to find an elusive TV-controlling bit of plastic, it's Nathan motherf*cking Drake.

But enough of our nonsense, where would you like Uncharted 3 to be set? And are you excited about the prospect of another treasure-hunting adventure? As ever, let us know in the comments below.

    Ok I know that LOST comment was a joke, but the polar bears were explained in season 3, four years ago. Sorry, just a hang-up of mine, I'm tired of those bears getting mentioned everytime LOST is, as though they were some integral part, they were in like 3 episodes.

    i love the atlantis and egypt ideas. thinking of ND rendering sand kinda tightens the pants a bit. as long as they keep making good games i will keep buying them. i have played through uncharted 2 about 5 times now and i just love it.
  • philipshaw - May 27, 2010 10:54 a.m.

    Your front room would be great; it would be like the start of Heavy Rain. Also the Lost Island would rule

    atlantis definatly not. can anyone think of a game where you swan alot and it was fun? Im with the Mediterranean feel for uncharted 3 but i would be up for where ever drake goes
  • Amnesiac - May 26, 2010 8:34 p.m.

    Giza, definitely. A desert environment with a lot of treasure and the potential for some supernatural craziness? Sounds like Uncharted to me.
  • Setre - May 26, 2010 7:12 p.m.

    I actually think Atlantis would be pretty cool. I bet the supernatural element would be fish people, which is also cool.
  • Evil_AppleJuice - May 26, 2010 6:37 p.m.

    Actually I think Giza is pretty probable. Sand would be Naughty Dog's new huge achievement. Plus, every game has had some unnatural monster in it. Why not mummies? AND Giza has been a haven for treasure hunters since they were built thousands of years ago.
  • Skykid - May 26, 2010 6:28 p.m.

    Egypt, Greece, or Rome would be great too. I would like to see some Angels & Demons, Drake style.
  • Skykid - May 26, 2010 6:14 p.m.

    Last one was HILARIOUS! lololololololololololol :)))))))
  • ultimatepunchrod - May 26, 2010 5:17 p.m.

    @reverandglass yes. this. but seriously i think something in egypt would be cool. because we've seen the snowy mountains and we've seen the jungle. so im thinking the next might be the desert. or something with rome or greece would be cool
  • reverandglass - May 26, 2010 2:58 p.m.

    so long as he doesn't team up with the son he never knew he had to investigate the curse of crystal skulls I'll be a happy camper. Giza or Greece ftw.
  • KnightDehumidifier - May 26, 2010 1:49 p.m.

    In a culmination of Sony's two top franchises, Nathan travels to Greece to find a set of enchanted blades that can give a man the imbued power of the most devastating God in all of Grecian mythos. However, a fiendish mercenary wants to claim the weapons as his own, and unleash a wave of destruction over the world with the unobtainable might that downed the Gods.

    I just hope the story doesn't totally shit the bed like it did at the end of Uncharted2
  • db1331 - May 26, 2010 12:10 p.m.

    Ever since your "One Letter Off" article I can't read anything about Uncharted without reading it as "Unsharted". Thank you GR.
  • ChuckB - May 26, 2010 10:50 a.m.

    Giza was the best.
  • Wriggly - May 26, 2010 10:31 a.m.

    I could actually see them going to some sort of desert for the next game, and as pretty as the I thought the snow levels were they were terrible.
  • rockstarsean - May 26, 2010 10:31 a.m.

    Atlantis and Giza would be epic, loch ness would probably involve too many gift shops for my linking...
  • bluscorp - May 26, 2010 9:49 a.m.

    I'd prefer Chloe and Elana in my room.
  • WillisTron - May 26, 2010 9:48 a.m.

    I want to play this game so badly
