It would be safe to label this video as a road map for the inexperienced, novice Uncharted multiplayer combatant. Robert Cogburn, Game Designer at Naughty Dog, leads viewers through “The Way of the Iron Fist” as he details the minutiae of running, gunning, climbing, stealth and melee in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception‘s multiplayer component.
Throughout the entire month of October, thanks to a promotion that came by way of Subway, Sony and Naughty Dog have put on an early multiplayer access event for Uncharted 3. Fans can buy a large drink from the sandwich hocker, snag the code on the cup, enter it into their PlayStation 3 dash and hop into the multiplayer trial from there. Everything players perform and unlock, including character progression, during the month of October will stick once the game officially launches on November 1st.
They’ve updated the content players have been able to experience throughout the month, and they are set to do so once more for the fourth week of this experience’s offering. From the same post that contained the video above on the PlayStation Blog, Eric Monacelli, Community Strategist at Naughty Dog, explains their next addition:
For week four, we’ll be rolling out the revamped Museum map. If you were lucky enough to attend our AMC events and make it to the final round you might have gotten a chance to play on this map. If not, you’ll have a few days of practice ahead of you before the full retail release of Uncharted 3.
As October wraps up and November 1st steps forward, most PlayStation 3 gamers will be queing up their bucks to run out and buy on day one. Will you be diving into Nathan Drake’s newest adventure when it releases next week?
We’ll have more on Uncharted 3, including the coming post-launch support from the developers, in the coming weeks.
