Uncharted 3 – “biggest patch ever” lands on PSN today
Naughty Dog has announced the “biggest patch ever” to hit Uncharted 3 will release today, and new multiplayer DLC will start “rolling out” on the PS Store August 15.
Patch 1.13 for multiplayer “has been months in the making,” and there’s more coming: as mentioned above, a brand new multiplayer DLC will be released through the PS Store starting on August 15.
“The upcoming DLC can be unlocked either by earning the necessary in-game levels, completing specific treasure sets, or if you’d rather unlock a certain item quickly you can purchase it in the PS Store,” said the firm, adding the update will contain 137 pieces of content.
The release of the patch also marks the release of the new Tournament System, a points-based competition with three reward tiers granting in-game weapons or items. Once a weapon or item is unlocked, it’s usable until the next tournament period.
Players can “buy into a tournament using tournament tickets,” if they run out of the ten tickets per tournament allotted, via the PS Store.
Uncharted 3 will also be the recipient of a new “experimental block of mesh maps,” which will be released via The Lab after patch 1.13 releases. The maps contain colored block mesh that designed to provide “some wild and distinct multiplayer gameplay.”
A schedule for the upcoming labs will be posted in the near future, and a full list of DLC items which will be available on the PS Store will be posted on the Naughty Dog blog starting August 14 – the same day a new batch of trophies land for the game.
