Predictably pretty

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.
