Welcome to Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Multiplayer!
It's here! Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Multiplayer is now Free-to-Play! For the full rundown on what that means for you check out the Naughty Dog Blog for all the massively sweet new details.
ATTENTION Free-to-Play players: thinking about purchasing a level cap unlock or the DLC maps? Get the complete Uncharted 3 experience: buy the digital version of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Game of the Year Edition. The single player is included free!
The blog post has been updated and they removed the mention of the Uncharted 3 multiplayer going free to play. I guess they are not ready for it yet.
From PS Blog:
They didn't give any more details. I think this is new. Sorry if has been posted already.
I'm seeing some people getting confused, so explaining better, the multiplayer portion of Uncharted 3 will be available for download on the PS Store for free.
