You may have seen this sandy, sun-soaked footage of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception before—Naughty Dog showed at Eurogamer Expo, but yanked the footage from YouTube. But now you can see it again in great detail and high-definition clarity. Hooray!

Since this appears to be some mid-to-late-game footage, be wary of spoilers, though most of what we see of Drake in action is comprised of massacring dozens of dudes with an assault rifle. Still, it's probably worth watching for the sand physics and keffiyeh animation alone.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception comes to the PlayStation 3 on November 1, 2011.
