- Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli
has posted up a video today introducing fans to the Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer experience!
To quote: Just a few days ago we teamed with Subway to launch the full competitive multiplayer experience for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception in the United States.
We are pumped to see everyone online one month before the full game's release on November 1st.
The PlayStation Blog spoke with Game Designer, Robert Cogburn
, to learn more about what you should do when you first log on to the full competitive multiplayer experience.
When you first get online to play there are some very important menus in your profile to navigate. Not sure what kickback or load outs to use? How do you get more cash and rank up? Want to know Robert's suggestion for the best guns and load outs for new players? Check out the video for answers to these questions and more valuable information:
Even if you have already jumped headfirst into the action, be sure to watch the video as it will provide some great pointers to help amp up your experience. If you still haven't made that trip to Subway hopefully this video whets your appetite to get there and dive into the complete Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience.
It's as easy as picking up any specially marked 30oz Uncharted 3 themed cup, taking the code printed on that cup, heading online to the Subway Taste for Adventure website and redeeming that Subway code. This will generate a PlayStation Store code good for a download of the full competitive Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience!
Don't forget that not only do you get to be one of the first people to play the full competitive Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience, all aspects of your profile progress earned during the Subway Taste for Adventure
carry over into the final retail copy of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Over the next few weeks, we'll be rolling out additional updates to the full competitive Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience, including new maps and level cap increases. To kick off the second week of the promotion, we'll be adding two brand new maps to the multiplayer experience on Monday, 10/10.
So you'll have a total of 8 competitive maps to explore! There also will be more videos with tips and info that will help maximize your Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience. Consider them your field guide and survival guide during the Subway Taste for Adventure and into the full retail release of Uncharted 3.
In-depth details about upcoming updates, the profile carry-over and its finer points, will be forthcoming as we roll up to the launch of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on November 1st. So stay tuned to the blog for the latest info and good fortune hunting!
