My fellow PS3-owners may have already seen this, but Eric Monacelli, Community Strategist for Naughty Dog, posted on the PlayStation blog Tuesday about new co-op adventure DLC for Uncharted 3 wherein you actually play as the bad guys!
By now you’re hopefully well versed in the long gun nuances, co-op narrative and all the hanging-by-your-fingers-on-edge-of-a-cliff action found in Uncharted 3 multiplayer. Today we’re firing a heavy salvo of Uncharted 3 DLC information your way featuring new content to download individually, or as part of the Fortune Hunter’s Club program. Downloading this fresh content will blow out the co-op storyline and expand the UNCHARTED series in ways that have never been done before.
Coming in today’s PlayStation Store update to Uncharted 3 is the Fort Co-Op adventure DLC. Did some of you guess that from our screenshot hint? Fort Co-Op Adventure will mark the first time in the series you’ll be able to play co-op as the UNCHARTED villains with Zoran Lazarević, Eddy Raja, Harry Flynn joining forces in a tale that further explores the mystery behind the Janus head statue from the on-disc co-op adventure. Check out a preview of that adventure here:
The new DLC costs $5.99. Not too bad for a new twist on things I suppose. What do you guys think? Worth a purchase?
They also released a whole bunch of new skins for purchase but I've never personally had much use for the various skins even if they are dirt cheap. So a big fat meh to that.
One other DLC item of note, on February 21 Naughty Dog is releasing the "Flashback Map Pack 2" for $9.99 in which they update 4 competitive maps from Uncharted 2 - Plaza, Temple, Train Wreck and Village - with "all-new dynamic lighting effects, cutting-edge particle effects and a bevy of other fresh technical polish". I fished in this pond the last time, but I think I'll skip it this time around. Recycled U2 maps for $10 seems a little steep to me, especially when I can still crack open my copy of U2 and play them on there - sans fresh technical polish of course. Also, I'm uncomfortable with their use of the word bevy. Thoughts?
