Naughty Dog have just released details on Uncharted 3’s latest patch – 1.13, which is released today. The patch covers a slew of multiplayer DLC that’ll start appearing in the Store updates from next week, so get ready to spend some of that PSN wallet…
The DLC can be earned in the game through a bit of grinding, or it can be bought outright from the Store to unlock immediately. 137 pieces of DLC will be added.
The other bit of the patch is a new Tournament System, which requires buy-in for each event with tickets. You’ll always, according to the notes, carry a balance of ten tickets per tournament period, but more can be purchased via PSN in packs.
Sounds like dreaded micro-transactions, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
“A tournament leaderboard will be added to the leaderboards section so you can track your skill level among your friends,” says the press release, which then, quite unbelievably, requires you to head off and visit IGN for the full low-down.
A tournament system is all well and good, but this reliance on spending real cash is potentially going to go down rather badly if not addressed properly.
The patch also brings about a rack of new trophies.
