Uncharted 3 trailer: Villain is Helen Mirren lookalike

New video unveils Uncharted's bad guys

Naughty Dog showed off a new Uncharted 3 level at GDC last week and revealed that the game's 'bad guy' is a Helen Mirren lookalike with a sidekick who's similar to Jason Statham.

You can see the new Uncharted villains below via the brand new video, which offers a few glimpses of the female antagonist talking to a suited Nathan Drake.


"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," the PlayStation Blog explains.

"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 cut-scene 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 before."

Last month, the studio likened the motion capture and voice acting procedures used for Uncharted 3 to that of a Hollywood film.

It was also reported today that Robert De Niro is open to the possibility of starring in a movie based on the PS3 exclusive franchise.
