Today out of nowhere, the developers at Naughty Dog have given us more juicy tidbits on Uncharted 3 multiplayer system. The system is completely revamped in several ways both unique and not so unique ways. Take a look at the list below and see what they have in store for us!
-New competitive mode, Three Team Deathmatch 2 vs 2 vs 2.
-New competitive mode, Free for All.
-Late joining is enabled to ensure you get into matches quicker
-Local spit screen for multiplayer and you can log into two PSN accounts
-Buddy system where you can share treasure with a buddy and spawn near them.
-Full character customization, even named characters
-One time per game use paid booster system (a la killstreaks but only used once and cost money.)
-“Kickbacks” are like contracts to where you fulfill a goal to get a bonus of some sorts.
-Some multiplayer missions could take days.
-“Power Plays” activate when one team is losing significantly to help give them a boost. While the underdogs get buffs and the winners spawn times are lengthened, the winning team has an opportunity to rack in money at this time.
-If games are too close, “Overtime” will activate to allow for either a come back or a larger win. If the game is STILL close after Overtime, “Sudden Death” will activate which is like elimination, no re-spawns.
-Upload cinema replays directly to Facebook.
-You can now sprint in multiplayer.
-Co-op does exist and has been greatly expanded upon.
-Multiplayer Beta June 28th.
