The PlayStation Blog has posted a video interview with developers from Naughty Dog discussing the multiplayer aspects of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. The changes to multiplayer include a wide variety of player customization options (which can be unlocked by collecting treasure randomly dropped from your foes) as well as power plays that analyze the score difference between teams and makes adjustments to the game on the fly. One example given is “marked man” which marks a player on a team and awards more points for killing them. Another great addition is splitscreen multiplayer. This is made even better with the ability to use dual PSN logins.
The Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta begins on June 28th for PlayStation Plus subscribers and for those who buy specially marked copies of inFAMOUS 2. Everyone else will get access on July 5th. Uncharted 3 is currently scheduled for release on November 1st of this year.
