Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Gets Patch 1.01 and Two New Maps

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Gets Patch 1.01 and Two New Maps

While the Uncharted 3 Subway multiplayer promo got off to a rough start last week, Naughty Dog has been working to address balance issues and fix various bugs. Patch 1.01, the first such fix for Uncharted 3, was released earlier this evening and fixes a few issues:

  • Fixed a bug which would cause players to stop accumulating cash and items purchased
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the player to lock up accessing the Friends list, or when a Friend joined them
  • Removed Team Objective and Plunder kills from being tabulated against the Kills/Deaths Leaderboard (all kill/death stats are still kept locally for the player)
  • Leaderboards will be completely reset soon to coincide with the above change
  • Microphone icon will now appear in the Multiplayer lobby to indicate who is using a mic
  • Fixed a bug in which switched control schemes were not being saved properly
  • Players will no longer able to join a party that is in the Find Game function or actively in a game (was causing various issues with players not being pulled into games properly)
  • European and American players will be re-integrated into the same play lists with this patch

Meanwhile, players will be excited to hear that Naughty Dog has unlocked two additional maps for play in the beta. “Highrise” makes a return from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to offer vertical gameplay and dangerous gaps set in war-torn Nepal. Some minor changes have been made between the second game and Uncharted 3, including the addition of a zipline, treasure chests, and a change from daytime to nighttime. “Molten Ruins” is also based on an Uncharted 2 map, namely “Flooded Ruins”.

With no option for custom games during the beta, players will have to use Matchmaking and hope they end up playing either of these two maps. Be sure to check back with us soon, as we’ll be posting plenty of videos of the new maps in theĀ Uncharted 3 multiplayer. Sound off in the comments below on your experience with the beta so far.
