It’s been two years since Uncharted 3 was released. Our community is simply amazing and we’re looking to make it stronger than ever.

By Eric-ND

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer – Double XP and Block Mesh Lab Map Update

UPDATE (Oct. 18): we will be delaying this event until next week due to technical issues. We're sweetening the deal tho...read on... Happy Friday! future Tuesday (Oct. 22)! We revised the Lab calendar to reflect some changes to the Block Mesh Lap Map schedule. We’ve reached a point where finishing up incomplete (and not yet fun) Block Mesh maps was impacting our two year anniversary plans. Therefore we amended the Lab calendar to concentrate on what’s in store for the anniversary. If you’re crying about the schedule changes, dry your eyes; we think you’re going to be very happy.   This week the Lab will see the return of Lead Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Designer Robert Cogburn's (@RobertCogburn) first Block Mesh Map. If you didn’t get a chance to play it when it was first released, it’s a ton of fun. Check it out. Are you looking to level up? A Double XP event will be happening from October 22 at 2:30pm PST until October 29 at Read more...

Uncharted 3: Oddball Themed DLC

The UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play launched a few weeks ago and we’ve seen a healthy uplift to our community to tune of over three hundred and fifty thousand downloads of the Free-to-Play client to date globally.

To keep that momentum going, as promised, we’re making new DLC available for purchase every month until June 2013. This month we’re recognizing Extraterrestrial Abductions Day – or a day around it anyway – by unveiling our Oddball themed character parts for your UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer characters. Why Oddball? Well, these character parts defy classification as they don’t quite fit among the numerous other parts we’ll have coming out over the next few months, and Extraterrestrial Abductions Day is a bit of an odd holiday anyway. A full rundown of everything that’s available with Read more...

Uncharted 3 Lab Update: New Block Mesh Lab Map

Happy new Lab Tuesday! We have a wild one this week for you. Game Designer Kurt Margenau’s (@KurtMargenau) fascination with zip lines spawned a block mesh Lab map concocted from the deep recesses of his mind that we’ve affectionately named “Flying Spaghetti Monster.” Kurt’s “Flying Spaghetti Monster” will be available today before 630pm PST. Get ready for some fast-paced motion and rambunctious skeet shooting of your multiplayer opponents.   There are a few updates to Uncharted 3 Multiplayer this week as well. We have rebalanced three-team deathmatch power weapons and starting spawns. All teams will now have a fair chance to get to the power weapons on the map from their starting spawn. We’ve also added death regions to certain levels unscrupulous people had been exploiting via a glitch. Check out those changes once the Lab is live. Next Tuesday, after the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA ends, we’ll be retiring Read more...

Uncharted 3 Lab Update: Team Objective T-Bolt and Pistoles Only

The new lab this week involves the Team Objective game types. You’ll be armed with a T-Bolt and Pistole only. The lab is available now. Load up the Lab playlist and get ready to crush those objectives. We’ve made some live updates to Uncharted 3 Multiplayer. Matchmaking will now search for players within a wider range of rank. For instance, if you’re level 75, we will form a match for you looking for players ranked 40 and higher. This should help matchmaking happen more quickly. We want to drop a quick reminder about profile resets. It’s a rare occurrence that’s been happening to a few players. It typically occurs after accepting the EULA when it pops up again. As we said last week, we can likely retrieve your account data if you contact us as soon as it happens. If you see your profile data has been reset at all, please don’t play past level 10 on the same account. Send us a direct message us via the forums right away and wait until we Read more...

Uncharted 3 Stats Update

Since launch of the UC3 stats, search has gone through logging into PSN before you were able to take action looking up your friends and competitors. There were a few reason for having this user flow at the time, but today I have updated the search of UC3. No longer do you need to log in to view a users stats. No longer - if you want - do you need to go to the search form to view a users stats. First off, you still need to log in to view your own stats, reason for this is PSN login is the only way I can predict its your stats to show. So the update for search goes as following. If you like the current flow, you can still input a users PSN id - case sensitive - into the form and view their stats. For those you know those they want to search you can now just append the user PSN id - case sensitive still - at the end of the URL and their stats should appear. You don't not need to be logged into naughtydog.com to search a user anymore. You can view my stats without logging in Read more...

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...

| 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...
