Naughty Dog and Sony put on a very popular press event at the Game Developers Conference last week. The subject: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
Besides showing off the game’s stereoscopic 3D mode, they also introduced the world to Katherine Marlowe, the thorn in Nathan Drake’s side and the villain of Uncharted 3. Check out the trailer above for more on Marlowe or hit the jump to learn a little more about her backstory.
About Katherine Marlowe:
Marlowe is definitely not one you want to get in the way of, or worse, double cross! To give you some background, Katherine Marlowe is the coldly calculating leader of a secret society whose roots date back over four hundred years to the court of Queen Elizabeth I. She has a long-standing rivalry with Nathan Drake over Sir Francis Drake’s ring – something they both contend is rightfully theirs and is also the key to an ancient mystery. As you can tell from the cutscene above, Marlowe is a much more cerebral enemy than Drake has confronted in the past, using both psychological and physical tactics to get what she is after. Marlowe also has the assistance of her team of highly trained agents in this secret society – they are far more elusive and dangerous than the hired guns Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan have faced in the past.
