By Eric-ND

Spyder joins Uncharted 3 Multiplayer

A few months ago Sony teamed up with Naughty Dog and to hold the UNCHARTED Audition. It began as an online competition run with slightly different rules out of the US and the UK, which opened the competition as a whole to a global audience. The competition played out via online video and image posts that were voted on by the community over the course of a few weeks. The voting culminated in an audition being held for the sixteen finalists, representing seven different countries ranging from America to Greece to Belgium, on the Sony Pictures Lot. The audition held some pretty high and cool stakes. Sixteen competitors were selected from seven different regions around the globe for the chance to help design a multiplayer character for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.   The audition was staffed by a panel of judges who are experts in what it takes to be Drake. Nolan North, voice of Nathan Drake, and Emily Rose, voice of Elena Fisher, joined Naughty Dog’s own Read more...

| Uncharted 3 The Lab: 3 vs 3 Sniper-Pistole Plunder | 2012 Jul 04

By arne

Uncharted 3 The Lab: 3 vs 3 Sniper-Pistole Plunder

We just pushed out an update to The Lab playlist in Uncharted 3 multiplayer just in time for the Independence Day holiday here in the United States. Jumping into The Lab will see you pitting in tense 3 vs 3 Sniper and Pistole only matches of Plunder! As part of the update today, we also changed the filter for DLC - based on your feedback - to favor Flashback Map Pack 2. Anyone who has Flashback Map Pack 2 downloaded and installed (and your DLC filter on) should be seeing those maps come up way more frequently in matches. One more thing - cinema files recording during the previous episode of The Lab will playback a little weird. The gameplay will play back fine, but the scoreboard won't be accurate and will try score the game based on Plunder. Don't freak out. With the July 4 Independence Day holiday tomorrow in the US - we hope to see a bunch of you on trying out The Lab. Happy Holidays!   Read more...

| Flashback Map Pack 2 Update | 2012 Feb 24

By Eric-ND

Flashback Map Pack 2 Update

There have been many forums posts and comments about Flashback Map Pack 2 and certain glitches that had been found while playing. The reason you saw those bugs is that the version that was posted on February 22nd on the European PS Store was an earlier version of the map pack that wasn’t final. For this reason we requested the content be taken down from the EU store temporarily. It was removed and replaced today.  This is important - EU PLAYERS – The correct and final version of Flashback Map Pack 2 is live. You will need to re-download it from your PS Store. You can do this by viewing recent purchases via the Download List (top right hand corner of your PS Store) and then selecting the Flashback Map Pack 2 content for download. The version of the Flashback Map Pack 2 that went live in all other regions outside of the EU is the final version. Those regions will not be required to re-download. They will only be subject to the following changes. During the Read more...

Everybody’s Working for the Weekend

The first weekend during the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta also happens to be a long holiday weekend. We’re expecting a higher number of players than during the week – as is typical in our experience – so we wanted to make sure that everyone knows where to leave us feedback. We can’t stress this point enough – we want to hear from you about anything and everything you like, dislike or any issues you encounter while playing the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta. The best place to do that, and make sure that we get it, it to post it on the Multiplayer Beta discussion forum on NaughtyDog.com here. Many of us have been playing in the Beta with you during the week and we’ll be on this weekend as well – see you online! Read more...

REMINDER: The Lab - M - 32 Hammers Only

Welcome back to final “The Lab” weekend in April! I’m sure everyone has been carefully reviewing all the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception multiplayer details we revealed earlier this week and – I hope – you are all looking forward to getting some hands on when the beta hits on June 28, 2011. However, that’s still a couple of months away – and our episode of “The Lab” this weekend can take care of that online multiplayer itch. “The Lab” is a special, limited-time playlist for UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves multiplayer that is active every other weekend. “The Lab” playlist features one or more custom-tuned gametype variations chosen by our game designers to test potential new settings, try out alternate gametypes in a real-world setting or just mix things up for the sake of variety. “The Lab” is open from Friday, April 22, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?) through Monday, Read more...

UNCHARTED 3 Multplayer First Look!

We're extremely proud and excited to finally start revealing our plans for the multiplayer modes in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. There's a massive post that just went up on the PlayStation.Blog that just gives you an idea of how much information there is to share, and really, we've just scratched the surface. We wanted to have the opportunity to give you the definitive guide to all of the information we've shared with the media since our Multiplayer press event last week. Before we get started, make sure to check out our Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Trailer below or directly on our YouTube page. It is your crash course into all of our reveals -- and there's even more if you watch closely. There's so many features and ideas for multiplayer we packed into this trailer, that repeat viewings will shed light on things you may have missed the first few times around. The music selection for this is a custom Naughty Dog remix of "Kill Everybody" by Skrillex. Cinematic Production Read more...

REMINDER: The Lab - Snipers and Pistole

Welcome back to “The Lab.” Our final episode of “The Lab” in March features the return of Snipers & Pistole, a popular gametype variation we removed from the All Competitive Types playlist a month ago. “The Lab” is a special, limited-time playlist for UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves multiplayer that is active every other weekend. “The Lab” playlist features one or more custom-tuned gametype variations chosen by our game designers to test potential new settings, try out alternate gametypes in a real-world setting or just mix things up for the sake of variety. “The Lab” is open from Friday, March 25, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?) through Monday, March 28, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?). The removal of Snipers & Pistole from the All Competitive Modes playlist was our way to try to mix things up a little bit outside of running our “The Lab” weekends. We removed a Read more...

“The Lab” - March 2011 Schedule

Okay, okay, so we missed posting the March 2011 schedule for “The Lab” earlier this month like we should have. We blame the dangerous proximity of GDC and PAX East for our delay. We hope you didn’t miss our tweet notifying you of our first “The Lab” weekend in March last week – if you missed the update, you may want to also follow our Twitter stream. Along with the “The Lab” you have to look forward to next weekend, we’ve recapped the description and information for the first “The Lab” weekend in March in the schedule below. If you’re new to “The Lab,” welcome! “The Lab” is a special playlist we will be running for a limited time on designated weekends, roughly every other weekend. You can access “The Lab” playlist within the set of playlists found in Matchmaking in UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer. During each weekend “The Lab” is active, we’ll be running a Read more...

UNCHARTED 2 playlist update and “The Lab”

If you've spent any time in the "All Competitive Modes" playlist, or selected this variation in Custom Games, there's a chance you may recognize this weekend's episode of "The Lab" - RPG - 7s Only - from the "All Competitive Modes" playlist as RPG's. Why would we put RPG - 7s Only, which you can already find in an existing playlist, into "The Lab" you ask? Because we have updated some of the gametype modes within the "All Competitive Modes" playlist. The update to "All Competitive Modes" removed the RPG - 7s Only and Snipers & Pistole gametypes entirely from rotation. In their place, we've added two gametype modes from "The Lab" - No Power Weapons and Desert 5 - Shootout. The current "All Competitive Modes" playlist now includes: Chain Reaction Plunder Turf War King of the Hill Pistol & Grenades No Power Weapons Desert - 5 Shootout We'll be keeping an eye on how the playlist changes shake out - we're thinking of making a couple more updates to the playlists Read more...

By arne

Triple Cash THIS weekend!

This weekend is a long weekend for many of us in the United States, as we celebrate the Federal Holiday that is known as Presidents Day on Monday, February 21. It’s also been about a month since our last Double or multiple Cash weekend and I’ve been hearing more than a few people ask when the next such weekend will happen. That weekend is now. We’ll be running Triple (3x) Cash in ALL playlists from Friday, February 18, at 10:00 AM PST (what time is that in my city?) through Tuesday, February 22, at 10:00 AM PST (what time is that in my city?). When we ran the last Triple Cash weekend in early January, a few people here and there were wondering why we chose to do 3x cash instead of the usual Double Cash. After running some mega cash multiplayer events in December, it felt to some of us that we set a little bit of a new expectation with multiple cash weekends and that it was a downer to take you all the way back down to “just” Double Cash. Feel Read more...

REMINDER: The Lab - Shotguns Only

Welcome back to “The Lab.” For our first episode of “The Lab” in February, we’re bringing back the most popular gametype variation from the original three episodes of “The Lab” from way back in June 2010 – Shotguns Only. Here’s some trivia, Shotguns Only was the favorite gametype of nearly 45% of the over 2,400 players who voted in our front page poll, handily beating out Sniper Extermination and 2 vs 2 Team Deathmatch, both tied at about 27% of the total votes. “The Lab” is a special, limited-time playlist for UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves multiplayer that is active every other weekend. “The Lab” playlist features one or more custom-tuned gametype variations chosen by our game designers to test potential new settings, try out alternate gametypes in a real-world setting or just mix things up for the sake of variety. “The Lab” is open from Thursday, February 10, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time Read more...

“The Lab” - February 2011 Schedule

We’ve into the second month of 2011, and we’re only EIGHT months away from the release of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. I know everyone is also looking forward to seeing what we’ve got in store for UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer and we’ll be scratching the surface of what I think is an incredibly deep multiplayer offering in due time – I mean it can’t be too long now right, since we’re running out of months before release. In the meantime, our focus is still with UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer and our “The Lab” series. For February we’re mixing things up a little – one of the very first “The Lab” gametype variations, Shotguns Only, returns for a standalone weekend. For the second “The Lab” weekend, we’ve pulled out an existing All Competitive Modes gametype variation. If you’re new to “The Lab,” welcome! “The Lab” is a special playlist we will be running Read more...

REMINDER: The Lab – Sniper Extermination

Welcome to our second episode of "The Lab" in 2011! As the studio continues to work hard on UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception, "The Lab" will spend the next months revisiting some of the best and most popular episodes from 2010.  "The Lab" is open from Friday, January 28, at 10:00 AM PST (what time is that in my city?) through Monday, January 31, at 10:00 AM PST (what time is that in my city?).  For this episode of "The Lab" we're bringing back a community favorite gametype variation from a very long time ago - June 2010 to be exact - with Sniper Extermination. All players will be equipped with only Dragon Sniper rifles - NO sidearms - as you play through this variation of the Elimination gametype. You've 99 bullets but only one life each round, and the first team to completely exterminate all players on the other team wins the round. Best of five rounds wins the match.

“The Lab” – January 2011 Schedule

Welcome everyone to 2011 and a brand new of year of “The Lab” in UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer! If you’ve been playing UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer for the past six or so months, you may recognize episodes of “The Lab” we’ve listed below for January. As the studio continues to work feverishly on our next game, UNCHARTED 3, we’ll be easing up on the workload of our game designers so they can kick ass at making UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer awesome. We will help them out by focusing “The Lab” more on gametype variations we have already tested and deployed successfully. While this means we won’t be able to explore some of the hundreds of gametype and playlist suggestions you’ve given us, we’ve been able to map out our schedule for “The Lab,” Double (or greater) Cash Weekends and even some updates to the Playlists for the forseeable future. We’re still dedicated to making an effort to keep things Read more...
