It’s nearly the summer solstice and we’re going to bring the cycle to a close on a happy, historical note. Our final themed DLC drop includes items for our Ancient theme. These will be available via the in-game store or the PlayStation Store over the coming week globally! Purchase the Ancient theme bundle to get the exclusive Egyptian Mask for Chloe.
Our community has embraced the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play and our player base continues to grow. We are stoked to witness that growth and see UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer being played fanatically in countries all over the world.
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month and we’re honoring this with some animal themed items for your UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer characters. First off, we have some very special and limited DLC available for purchase this month. Pogo and Trumpet, our resident Naughty Dogs, are now immortalized on custom t-shirts and weapons. All proceeds from the sales of these items will go to the SPCALA, a charity that supports the prevention of cruelty to animals.
The PlayStation Community forums have become a fertile, creative home for the discussion of the various Naughty Dog franchises but our UNCHARTED community has been truly remarkable. It’s a great place to meet some new friends and offer up your ideas about what you like to see and do in game.
Naughty Dog, purveyors of fine action-adventure games including the upcoming survival action game The Last of Us, made a bold move yesterday. They decided to make the core multiplayer component of their most recent game, the globetrotting epic Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, free.
In a world of microtransactions and freemium stigmas, gamers naturally had questions about this decision. Why Free-to-Play?
After a few months of dropping hints our secret is ready to be made public. We are extremely fortunate to have some of the most devoted and amazing fans in gaming and we wanted to introduce those fans, and the world of UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer, to as many people as possible. We also wanted everyone who plays our multiplayer game to engage with it in a way that best suits their own unique play styles. So, it’s time to go big and grow our community even more. With that, we’re thrilled to announce that UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Multiplayer is going Free-to-Play!
As 2013 starts to dawn and we all know we survived the 2012 phenomenon we wanted to wish you a very happy holidays from Naughty Dog studio!
2012 was jam packed with breaking news about The Last of Us and fresh content reveals for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. On the Uncharted 3 front, we recently announced our holiday items and we’ll have even more content inbound in the New Year. Additionally, we have some very exciting information about multiplayer around the start of next year. Get ready for all the big news by checking back to the PlayStation blog and Naughty Dog blog once 2013 hits.
When we announced UNCHARTED 3 we set out to make the multiplayer component as robust and compelling as any other multiplayer game out there. We took lessons from our summer beta and the Subway Taste for Adventure and used them for our launch. Since launch, new design ideas and community feedback have been applied to every patch we’ve released. Our newest patch is lucky number 13, and we’ve planted some fresh ideas deep into the game. Patch 1.13 for UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer has been months in the making — it’s our biggest patch ever.
Patch 1.13 will be available today, August 7th. If you’re not a fan of reading, check out the patch notes video below for some of the new update’s highlights.
We have unique new multiplayer DLC that will start rolling out to users as part of the PlayStation Store updates, starting on August 14th.
