Step aside Gabriel. Go back to bed Lazarevic. It's time for a new villain to shine in what is bound to be one of 2011's biggest and most exciting games; Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. We know where Drake is going, and we know some of the story themes that will played with, but what about the villain? Naughty Dog has kept mum on the subject, up until now that is. Thanks to a video posted on revision3, we now know who Drake's arch nemesis will be in this third outing. Readers wishing to stay on a media blackout would be best to avoid this report.
According to the video posted, the main antagonist for Uncharted 3 will take a step away from the testosterone fueled manly men in favour of an older Helen Mirren look alike, as can be seen in the picture below. Sadly, this is all we know, though fans are bound to start thinking of possible connections between this character and the already established franchise cast.
It is worth nothing that the Uncharted series has often made an attempt to have their in-game characters modeled to somewhat resemble their real world voice actors. With this character looking like a splitting image of Helen Mirren, could it mean the skilled actress is lending her talents to Drake's Deception? I guess we'll find out in the near future.
