Nathan Drake will be gorging on sun, guns and fun in the Rub' al Khali desert, one of the many destinations featured in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. First footage of Drake's (potentially spoiler-ish) desert-going adventure is now in the wild, excavated from the recent Eurogamer Expo.

PlayStation 3 owners looking to go in completely fresh may want to avoid watching the off-screen footage exported from Eurogamer Expo 2011. This appears to be later game content, as demonstrated by Naughty Dog's Richard Lemarchand and Uncharted voice talent Nolan North. But it is very, very pretty, and perhaps worth a peek if you don't mind seeing what Uncharted's developers are capable of with digital sun and sand.

Uncharted 3 hits the PS3 on November 1, 2011, but some lucky people have the opportunity to get their hands on it a little earlier.
