It’s been a busy couple of weeks for gamers around the globe and before the dust can settle we’re already seeing news of DLC for the industry’s latest wave of heavy hitters, one such title being the remarkable Uncharted 3. This week Naughty Dog will be launching a Killzone 3 character pack, unlocking the iconic Capture Trooper as a playable villain, heroes now able to don high-tech helmets as worn by the ISA. American PSN users can expect the add-on to launch tonight a fair sum of $1.49, available for free to anyone who owns a Fortune Hunter’s Club pass.
ND also gave us a quick glimpse at Uncharted 3’s next content update titled “Flashback Map Pack #1,” which, believe it or not, ushers another two classic maps from the Uncharted 2 multiplayer. Both The Fort and Ice Cave (two of the game’s better online battlegrounds) will be making a return, the latter having shed its many layers of frost and snow in favour of a more overgrown aesthetic. No doubt some of you will be reaching for your torches and pitchforks already; as much as we like to celebrate retro content, Uncharted 3 has really taken the biscuit as of late, Fortune Hunter subscribers blindly paying in advance for 26 skins they probably already had access to and now two maps they’ve likely played to death. Considering that ND decided to call the pack “#1” also suggests that more recycled online arenas are on the way.
