Watch this Uncharted 3 multiplayer gameplay video witch included some new gameplay footage.
But that "carpet bomb" doesn't look like fun. I mean, wont that abusable ? or will there be some sort of limitation ?
I see a limitation.. ND already nurfed the grenades in UC2 because of the sheer amount of spam. I would guess this is either a slot option (perk) and usable only one time for every life, or a killstreak of some sort (hope not)
does look kinda dirty, still cant wait for the beta
didnt ND say these "killstreaks" would only be allowed once per match?
Not killstreaks, "Kickbacks"
Looks like Uncharted 2 MP... and thats great, my only problem with that multiplayer was that weapon strategy was kinda limited, spam headshots with semi auto rifle, spam close distance bullets with uzi, shoot and run with shotgun, lol it was really repetitive. Still fun but im expecting a lot in UC3
Yeah, I'm definitely excited for the beta but, C'mon....that carpet bomb was pretty weak. I would get pretty pissed about that.
I think I've seen a naughty dog guy talk about this in an interview: they are "killstreaks" there are 2 different kinds, and both are shown in this video, one is a triple grenade which explode all at once, and the other is more like a "chain-grenade" which don't blow up all at once. If I remember correctly one is a streak of three and the other a streak of seven, seems weird. the other killstreak we see in the video is the green smoke thing, it makes everybody look like a skeloton, so you can't differenciate friend from foe.
The developer has stated these are medal kickbacks that u can "buy" once u have enough medals earned, and use only one time. Once used, u have to earn all the medals necessary again to "buy" it and then u can use it again. This is not at all like killstreaks. U won't get these abilities in the match. U have to earn medals, buy, equip before the match, and use only once during match when u see it necessary.
Ok, so I went back and did some research, and you were right about those "medal kickbacks", they are given by getting medals, which are obtain by doing in-game prowesses, like killstreaks. once you get the right number of medals you can use your medal kickback. it's explaned quite well in this video: http://www.ign.com/videos/2... how I understand it, you do get them before a match, you get them while your playing. I think they'll be quite limitied as alot of them require quite a few medals.
like homefront instead of points you get medals
they are not going to be "killstreaks" but more so "medal-streaks". in COD you kill an X amount of people to get a bonus, but in UC3 you have to get X amount of medals to get that bonus. source: interview
It is a kick back. Kick backs are abilities that can be activated ONCE per match. One trades in a certain amount of medals they've earned in order to use a kick back once. Everyone chooses one kick back before the match and have the choice to use it during the match if they have enough medals to trade. However it can only be used ONCE per match. So basically it isn't something that'll be abusable. I hope this clears things up.
i love that song
i hope that carpet bomb is just a killstreak that you can just use once, then you have to stack up kills to use it again. hope they balance it all out, because i have plans to play uncharted 3 online this time, and not just single player.
It's based on medals not kills so I think Kickbacks will be harder to get. I hope they balence it out as well because I want to play Uncharted not Uncharted COD. I don't want to be taken down every 20 seconds like the fast paced COD.
That carpet bomb looks like a killstreak... i'm a little worried
Looks awesome cant wait! anyone know the song name?
Music is by Skrillex 1st song = Rock N' Roll http://www.youtube.com/watc... 2nd song = Kill Everybody = http://www.youtube.com/watc... Bubbles?
Nope because you asked for them!
LoL @Greg Miller from IGN getting owned around the @2:00 mark. Sucks how a journalist gets to try out the game rather then us excited actual gamers... OT: Looks pretty sweet but man I am getting sick of that song being overplayed in every video now.
Greg Miller plays a shit load of PS3 man, he is definitely a gamer. Whether he is good or not i'm not really sure, this was his first time playing this game though which is more than either of us have played so cut him some slack. I'm sure there is new things to learn, plus he was going against other people not AI.
Uncharted 3 cannot be to different from UC2 so he is still bad at the game.
I'm still a little worried how things are going to work, I want it still feel like Uncharted. I know people asre like "You havent played it" but when theres videos of what it actually looks like, the quicker you say something the longer the developers can look at it and decide if they want to change it.
My god, I can't wait for this game....at least the single player. Sorry but Uncharted 2's multiplayer sucked so bad you could tell it was just tacked on and Uncharted 3's multiplayer doesn't look any better.
I think it only sucked for those who sucked at it. I loved it even with all the tweaks they did, u just had to adjust & it was fine.
It's fine to say you didn't like it, but to say it was just tacked on is absolutely stupid. Uncharted 2 multiplayer was EXTREMELY polished, very stable, and supported with a bunch of content and updates that is still played by thousands upon thousands of people today. Well not today, but you get what I mean.
I agree with all of your points, although the loading into MP thing sort of made it NOT extremely polished. I also didn't like it too much after the damage update. But, hopefully, UC3 rapes the second outing's MP.
For Naughtydogs first time at Multiplayer they did a pretty amazing job for U2 It's the only multiplayer I've really got into. Besides I'm hopeing they have a classic playlist in U3 since I bet not everyone will be fond of those cod like killstreaks...I mean kickbacks.
This game is going to keep me busy for a long time with the online mp. The campaign is what im really looking forward to.
Game looks great. 1:15 check out the sausage fest.
I loved co-op in Uncharted 2, hopefully a Yakuza skin pack (Kiryu Kazuma) can be a dlc like Sev, Hale and Cole.
that would be awesome. and for some strange reason i thought it would be cool to put some of the characters from lost in the game.
Oh shit they've turned Uncharted into COD with lame over powered perks.
I'm excited for the story mode.
this is not a new trailer FAKE
Who said it was a trailer?
I would say the king of TPS is Uncharted. When it comes to MP between U2 and GoW, it's a tossup. I would give the edge to Gears, in the multiplayer department although. It has a tad bit more depth to it.
cant see how it has more depth, considering uncharted features climbable structures. adding a whole new dimension to the game play. I used to love gears multi player and i gotta say uncharted multi player far more depth than gears.
Looks awesome. I wont even play the story mode, unless PSN gets hacked again.
Thank you, your word holds so much value.
