Extended Uncharted 3 trailer releases with more footage and sand

An extended trailer for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has just released. When compared to the tiny teaser released earlier this week, this extended version features about two minutes of additional footage and a lot more sand.

Uncharted 3 finds Nathan Drake and Sully searching for ‘The Atlantis of the Desert,’ a lost city full of mysterious secrets and phat loot. The sandy environments featured in the teaser is marks a change for the jungle-friendly platformer.  “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 Creative Director Ann Hennig in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Other, less sandy, environments have been confirmed by Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer, in addition to the return of online multiplayer and co-op modes. And if you’ve got the tech, you can look forward to following the exploits of Nathan Drake in stereoscopic 3D.
