is here with a video update on the Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer experience, covering the Buddy System and Treasures below!
To quote: When you're venturing into hostile territory, it's important to know that somebody is watching your back. The Buddy System in UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer ensures just that.
As we hit week two of the Subway Taste For Adventure competitive multiplayer experience, we're excited to detail the finer points of the UNCHARTED 3's Buddy System and how it impacts the pacing and flow of competitive multiplayer matches.
In addition to good buddies, good booty will also make your multiplayer experience more layered and enjoyable.
PlayStation.Blog spoke with Game Designer Robert Cogburn to learn more about how to make friends and earn treasure in UNCHARTED 3's multiplayer experience. Check out this video for some in-depth information about buddies and treasure:
If you still haven't gotten down to Subway... well, what are you waiting for? We just added two new maps to the experience and will continue to roll out updates and content as we march towards launch (November 1st!).
We will be rolling out another newly revamped map (any guesses as to which?) starting next week that those of you heading to New York Comic-Con
this week can preview and play.
To get into the action, it's as simple as purchasing any specially marked 30oz UNCHARTED 3 themed cup from a participating Subway, heading online to the Subway Taste for Adventure
website and redeeming the Subway code printed on your cup. You'll be granted a PlayStation Store download code redeemable for the full competitive UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer experience!
Aside from being able to win some seriously cool prizes like trips to adventurous and exotic locations and collector edition copies of UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception, you will be one of the very first to play our full competitive multiplayer experience.
What's more, all aspects of your profile progress earned during the Subway Taste for Adventure
carry over into the final retail copy of the game, so jump in to get your multiplayer battle plans ready!
