Uncharted 3: The Lab and Community Update #2

Two Block Mesh Lab Maps are available now in custom games as well as The Lab playlists. Join in a special community event with some Dogs. Also our colorful theme continues in the Tournament!

Happy Tuesday! We launched UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play last week and we’ve seen a healthy uplift to our community to tune of over one hundred thousand downloads of the Free-to-Play in one week in North America alone. We’re excited to see our community grow and stoked to keep expanding the world of UNCHARTED to as many people as possible.

As a way to say thank you for all your continued support and give newcomers additional ways to play the multiplayer we’re adding Block Mesh Lab Maps #1 and #2 to The Lab this week. Also, both maps will be available in the Custom Games option. That means you can now play Game Designer Junki Saita’s (@dirt_herder) inaugural Block Mesh Lap Map and Lead Multiplayer Designer Robert Cogburn’s (@RobertCogburn) block mesh map creations as often as you’d like. We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of videos you’ll be making using these maps.

Our colorful theme continues and you can earn the Rainbow Gun and Rainbow Shirt as Tournament rewards. If you hit the gold tier you can earn the rare Bronze Mask for Drake. You get the very cool Shade Raptor Mask for Drake and Shade Dive Helmet for Talbot by achieving Platinum status. Use your tickets to enter into the weekly Tournament and unlock these items as a testament to your skills.

SilverDefender invited the Naughty Dog crew to play the EU community and we’ll have some Dogs playing online this Saturday, March 9 at 12noon PST. Visit the EU community events page and this thread for all the details. We hope to be holding many more events with you in the coming months.

EU users who are experiencing issues with earning XP in UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play after purchasing the UNCHARTED 3: Multiplayer Competitive MP- No Level Limit or the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Game of Year Digital Edition we have sorted out the issues and we will follow up with the proper corrective measures in the forums. A reminder: XP doesn’t accrue on your profile past level 15 UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play until you unlock it. Only the money you will have earned will still be accumulated.

If you’re looking to remove the ads from UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play you’ll need to purchase one of the following core components: Single Player Experience, Co-Op Adventure Mode, No Level Cap, or the DLC Map Packs. Please note you won’t earn XP past Level 15 until you purchase either the Level 25 limit or the no Level cap unlocks.

The Lab calendar will remain the same for a few months but we’ll be adding to it in the future. Visit the Lab calendar on your Uncharted 3 stats page to learn about upcoming Labs and future multiplayer events. See you online!
