Naughty Dog has released preliminary patch noted for Uncharted 3 update 1.11 which will be released at the end of the month, which also hails the return of The Lab.

Here’s what is coming with the patch:

  • The Lab returns and we begin the playlist with a T-bolt/Pistole-only map. We will be rolling out other game types as the year progresses.
  • The Lab will contain treasure drops from whatever the base game type is (the T-bolt/Pistole map is considered Team Deathmatch).
  • Elimination Mode has been added.
  • Elimination mode will contain treasure drops from Team Deathmatch.
  • Message of the Day returns – a daily message will pop up with news, tips, and other information.
  • If you leave a game, disconnect, or turn off your PS3 mid-game, it will be counted as a loss.
  • Kill and deaths no longer count towards your career stats in Plunder and Team Objective modes.
  • The technical hooks to make the Game of the Year edition (EU) work properly with DLC were added.
  • In Team Deathmatch mode the Airstrip and London maps now are listed with “No Intro” variations. If these variations are selected you’ll start those maps with no convoy events.
  • The Long Ranger Medal can now be earned by achieving 3 kills at 50 meters in a match instead of 3 kills at 70 meters.

The following custom game settings are now available via a menu in Custom Game mode called “Advanced Settings.”

  • Respawn Time.
  • Buddy Spawning toggle.
  • Health Multiplier – by percentage.
  • Sprinting toggle.
  • Weapon Mode (Default, Basic Weapons, Pistols, RPG-7).
  • Medal Kickbacks toggle.
  • Boosters toggle.
  • Grenade Throw Back toggle

Similar to patch 1.09, all cinema files created pre-patch 1.11 will no longer work once patch 1.11 is released. Therefore, if you want to preserve your cinema files, upload them onto YouTube before downloading and installing patch 1.09.
