We’ve known about Uncharted 3′s Flashback Map Pack #1 for a little while now, however what we didn’t know is that it will contain four unlockable online battlegrounds and not just two, as previously thought. On the latest episode of GTTV fans were given an exclusive look at one of the returning maps, Sanctuary, and like several other retro arenas it has received a makeover with more dynamic lighting and particle effects, swapping out the Tibetan mountain backdrop for a deep jungle, decaying aesthetic.
An Ice Cave re-make and updated version of The Fort have been previously confirmed for map pack too, with one more left to be revealed before it’s release. However, thinking about it, given the #1 tag it’s more than likely that Naughty Dog has a second Flashback DLC pack in the pipeline, meaning 8 retro maps in total, exactly the same number of maps that were originally released for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
There has been no official announcement on when the DLC will be released, though given the amount of content already hinted at via the Fortune Hunter’s Club, a pre-2012 doesn’t seem out of the question.
