New Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Info


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
-Emblem editor
-Weapon customization
-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.

    One word…SICK. Nuff said!!!

    You forgot the best thing. No Situational Awareness!!!. That’s right Bitches. The thing I’ve been complaining about the most is out. Now all you have left is your lack of skill.

    I cannot wait and am pleased as punch to hear that beta access will be given out for purchasing INfamous 2. I’ll be in on the beta immediately.
    This looks like a great Mutiplayer experience.

    And the music track with this trailer is AWESOME. I can’t wait for a few Game nights with the people in this blog.

    You can also invite friends from Facebook. They are going all out on the FB integration in this game.

    “-Some multiplayer missions could take days.” – Awesome. Man the stuff they’re doing sounds fantastic, I can’t wait until the beta! We’ll definitely be doing Beta game nights!

    This certainly got me interested!

    Improvements seem welcome, level design seem over the top!

    Most importantly Beta will come really early! Do you get to keep your levels in cases like this? I’ve never entered betas before ;p

    Going back and actually being able to read this (since I was at work) that “Overtime” system sounds god damn badass. The sprinting and expanded co-op sounds awesome too, and the uploading to facebook of the movies. I just hope I can save them to my HDD this time around! That way I can actually edit them without a computer.

    All in all I’m really excited about all this stuff. The multiplayer of 2 was great, without anything in it really. All this customization is great, that’s one thing more games need is player / weapon customization.

    Can’t wait! BETA!

    mcloki: And the music track with this trailer is AWESOME.

    omg, are you serious? That’s like the worst kind of music. I thought it was dreadful

    Jay:

    Come on, you have to admit the ‘I want to kill everybody in the world’ line is pretty bitch’n

  13. #13 by Markus on April 19th, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    Not my kind of music but I can see how fans of the game and that genre of music would like get goose bumps or something.

    -Local spit screen for multiplayer and you can log into two PSN accounts

    All local mulitplayer games should include this -.- Seems very basic to me. This game is looking very interesting.

    Jay, I hum that song now when I fire up Multiplayer and kill people. It’s so catchy. Somewhere online I saw the original with the proper Drake “John Williams” Score. Drake “movie” music belongs in the game and in trailers but let the ND guys have some fun and bring something a little different to these teasers.

    It’s not going to stop you playing the game and Jay if it makes you feel any better I whisper it in your ear when I stealth kill you. [FTW]mcloki.

    CAN NOT WAIT.
    Buying Infamous for this.
