Friday 10 December 2010
The third game in the
Uncharted series has been confirmed as one of the preview trailers to be shown at Saturday's Video Game Awards 2010.

After a studio tour from the series' creators, news magazine Entertainment Weekly is expecting the game to launch in fall 2011.

Hollywood director Guillermo del Toro will have a some of his new game shown, while footage relating to Batman: Arkham City, Portal 2, Prototype 2, Resistance 3, Gears of War 3, and an unnamed project from BioWare - the studio behind Dragon Age, Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic - will also be aired.
The Spike VGAs are to start at 5pm PST / 8pm EST on Saturday December 11, 1am GMT on Sunday 12. They mark the start of the end-of-year award season, which for most magazines, shows and websites will get into full swing during the last week of December.
