Fight for Your Life in New Uncharted 3 DLC

Brand new battlefields

If you’re a fan of Uncharted 3’s multiplayer offering, then this is probably the DLC you’ve been waiting for. While decent value, the Fortune Hunters’ Club has been padded out with some pretty uninspired content – but Naughty Dog’s ensuring that the season pass ends with a bang.

The developer’s taken to the PlayStation Blog to announce four fresh competitive multiplayer maps. These aren’t rehashes of old content – they’re brand new, and they look great.

New territories include the Graveyard, Old Quarter, London Streets and Oasis.

The Graveyard transports you to the docks from Uncharted 3’s main campaign. You’ll need to traverse ships upon rolling waves, and pay close to attention to the position of your foes in order to ensure you don’t end up sleeping with the fishes. Meanwhile, the Old Quarter buys you a one-way ticket to the sultry (and deadly) streets of Yemen. Alleys and dim rooms mean you’ll need to stay alert – or risk ending up as produce on a local market trader’s stall.

Finally, there’s the violent streets of London, with back-alleys and bars providing the perfect backdrop for all-out turf-war, and the (not so) exotic landscape of Oasis, the sun-drenched setting for your concluding face-off.

Each of the new maps will feature new dynamic events, including the arrival of an RPG-armed patrol boat in Graveyard and a drop-ship in Oasis. The pack will run you $9.99 (or £7.99) if you aren’t a Fortune Hunters’ Club member – but you still have until 17th April left to subscribe. If you’re heavily invested in Uncharted 3’s multiplayer, it makes financial sense.

While this marks the end of Uncharted 3’s content season, it doesn’t mean Naughty Dog’s stepping away from the title for good. It has promised the return of The Lab, which previously played host to a number of experimental game-types in Uncharted 2. Additionally, the developer has teased there'll be more DLC announcements down the line.

Check out the new maps in action below, and let us know if you’re still playing Uncharted 3 in the comments.

I'm still playing the single player 48% just met up w/ Elena at the airport and I am mostly underwhelmed. If I would have played this after the first I might be impressed but it pales in comparison to 2. The game feels unfinished and rushed. I climbed right thru a wall and had to fall to my death - nothing like that ever happened in 2. And Chloe's face looks flat and the kid moves funny. My wife thinks they didn't bother w/ motion capture for this game. I'm holding out hope that they put all their resources into the last 52% and I'll forget about the first half. Oh, and the difficulty is almost back to the first - stupid 3 RPG guys on the wall - Hey Scully how about you grab that damn rifle for once.
