Naughty Dog on Uncharted 3 Going F2P: It “Takes Away a Huge Barrier That Exists for Many Players”

Yesterday saw the release of a free-to-play version of Uncharted 3′s multiplayer on the PSN, allowing you to rank up all the way to level 15. While free-to-play is nothing new to video games, it is a little strange that Naughty Dog would spend their time implementing this, especially when they are hard at work on The Last of Us and, hopefully, Uncharted 4.

I almost forgot about The Last of Us having multiplayer, hopefully they show it off soon.

Yeah me too, I wonder what they're going to do for multiplayer. Can't be exactly like UC multiplayer.
They have less than four months now to show it. The reveal must be soon.

Do you think they will make a Beta?

You'd think so but with the release so close, I'm not sure.

I don't see it in the NA store yet.

I seen it there yesterday. Try to search for it.

Got it awesome. I had to go to free to play then another free to play icon and there it is. Thought it'd be on "what's new".

It's 6.7gb, but it states that other modes of play need to be purchased or something like that.

Somehow I missed the reveal of the multiplayer in this one! Thanks for the heads up. ND cannot disappoint.

It seems a bit late to me.

I don't even have enough room on my HDD for UC F2P. :(
Skate-AK  +   601d ago
Delete some installs!
kingPoS  +   600d ago
Try deleting the game data associated with your oldest game save, or what ever you play the lest.

It's a great way to introduce new players into the UC MP world.
Hydralysk  +   601d ago
I think it's a nice idea, buy a PS3 and you can play an online shooter without having to purchase the game.

Now if only we could somehow get Tribes: Ascend to work on consoles...

Don't forget MAG. That got Awesome recently
kevnb  +   601d ago
they would have to make that play more like halo, unless of course they start letting people use mouse and keyboard ffs.

They should do this with all multiplayer games that suffer from low players. Shadowrun on the 360 would be a great choice.

level cap at 15 :(
cloud495  +   601d ago
I wonder if in the future there are going to be options to buy either the campaign or the multiplayer separately. Sony might be testing this. They've done it with Killzone, starhawk and now uncharted.
For example 25usd for campaign and 25USD for multiplayer which is free to play until a lvl cap. And 40usd for both.
This is a great option for people who couldn't care a bit about multiplayer or the people who don't give a damn about the campaign mode.

This game can now be found for about 20 euros or less. You don't have to sacrifice storage space and you get an awesome singleplayer campaign bundled with it... I understand some people don't want to pay, but why would you buy an expensive ps3 in the first place if you think 20 euro is too much for a game.
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   601d ago
Huge barriers that include actually buying the game XD
matrixman92  +   601d ago
if you have the online pass downloaded...there should NOT be a lvl cap, and you shouldnt have to watch ads everytime you search for a match. Its just stupid
kingPoS  +   600d ago
Unfortunately because It's a separate sku online passes don't work on the FTP version.

Wow they have ads now? I didn't know they put those in. I always thought those YouTube clips were a nice touch on the disc ver.
matrixman92  +   600d ago
yep...everytime u are in the process of searching for a match, a fullscreen ad comes. idk if it was just extremely unlucky, but I saw the driveclub trailer like 10 times in a row
kingmushroom  +   601d ago
Im thinking for the last of us, their gone put us in a death match and throw in one life pack .
ginsunuva  +   600d ago
You mean the barrier of... paying for stuff? Oh no!!!!..
