It’s been a while since we last heard from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Thankfully, Sony and Naughty Dog have heard the cries of Nathan Drake’s man-crushing fans, releasing a new trailer on the official PlayStation blog that highlights the game’s feminine antagonist, Katherine Marlowe.
Judging from the trailer below, we dont think its over-stepping bounds to preemptively label this lady a total bitch-face. She’s like the evil doppleganger of a Judi Dench/Helen Mirren cross-breed. Maybe there’s even some shades of Ms. Doubtfire in there as well? But that’s just wishful thinking on our part.
Straight from the horse’s mouth, here’s a little background info on Katherine Marlowe:
"Marlowe is definitely not one you want to get in the way of, or worse, double cross! To give you some background, 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. 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 cutscene 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 in the past."
