PS3 answer to Tomb Raider looking nice

Screens of Naughty Dog's Lara-flavoured adventure game, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, begin to shine

We're pleasantly surprised by these new screens of Naughty Dog's latest work - Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is looking very good indeed.

Previously known simply as Big, it follows the lead character, Ethan Drake, on a mission to prove he's a descendant of Sir Francis Drake (eh?) and find his treasure.

Naughty Dog is keeping quiet on the bigger picture but has revealed that Ethan's exploits will take him through an Amazonian jungle, ancient temples, and even out at sea on a derelict warship.

You can see, just by looking at these screens, that Naughty Dog is aiming to make Drake's Fortune somewhat a technical masterpiece. Drake himself will apparently be put into motion with over 3000 animations. The game will also feature absolutely no loading times past the initial boot-up, streaming all those hi-res textures and detailed environments right off the Blu-Ray disc.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is due for release in November.
