Uncharted 3 patch adds alternate aiming options

Monday, 28th November 2011 04:20 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Naughty Dog has addressed fan complaint by patching in new aiming options for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – but only for single-player.

The new aiming option was listed in the 1.02 patch notes on the Naughty Dog blog, but apparently does not apply to multiplayer.

Uncharted 3 has been the subject of much complaint thanks to changes to the aiming used in the previous game. Naughty Dog went so far as to invite a pair of fans into the office to demonstrate and explain the problem, describing the feedback obtained as “super helpful“.

Fan reaction to the patch is likely to be mixed, as competitive players will be disappointed at being unable to use the new aiming options in multiplayer.

Several other adjustments to multiplayer have already drawn community ire, with tweaks to player speed nerfing the Fleet Foot ability considerably to great discontent – except from those on the receiving end.

    That was fairly fast, good show. Ive still not picked this up, too many other good titles to keep me going just now.

    It doesnt apply to MP because it didnt need the changes there. MP’s aiming is the same as in UC2, i.e; Faster and more responsive compared to UC3′s SP.

    I’ve found the gun play to be pretty weak in U3. Wasn’t sure why, maybe this will help. Good work ND

    It does not matter. I finished this game without the patch and everything is absolutely fine with the AIM.

    you need to be super casual to think that it is hard to AIM. Why are you playing games if you can’t even aim for F sake? The only difference between 2-3 is that AIM is a bit diferent, but it’s not makes game harder or anything.

    @6: “It doesn’t matter, because i don’t have a problem with it.”

    Gotta love that mindset.

    Well there you go people who skipped this FANTASTIC game because of so called crappy shooting mechanics.(Like Erth said I played through entire campaign without a problem with shooting) Now no reason not to add this stellar game to your played list. When I play through on crushing i’ll give the 2nd option a swing through to see how different it was really won’t matter though game was still amazing(SAND EVERYWHERE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD)
