Uncharted 3: new multiplayer details

The first details on Uncharted 3‘s multiplayer component have come out today.

Looking to bring a “cinematic experience” to Uncharted multiplayer, Naughty Dog is adding a whole lot of new to Uncharted 3. Online, players can sprint, customize their player and weapons, play split-screen, and compete across various modes — including a new ‘2 vs. 2 vs. 2’ deathmatch and 8-player free-for-all.

Facebook integration is a huge part of the multiplayer, as well. At the multiplayer menu, a feed showing which Facebook friends are currently playing Uncharted 3 can be seen. It’ll show any updates, videos, or screenshots they’ve posted, too.

“Our goal for Facebook is to really make sure you can interact with your Facebook friends the way you interact with your PSN friends,” Balestra told USAToday. “You can talk to them (and) you can invite them to your party. You are going to see icons of people’s faces and their real names. So right away it is going to feel bigger.”

If a screenshot or video you post gets, say 5 likes on Facebook, the player could receive an in-game gift. The best videos may end up on a new service called “Uncharted TV”, which appears at the bottom right corner of the pregame menu.

An interview with Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra can be seen below.
