"To date over 3.5 million people have played in over 37 million matches of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Multiplayer. All Free-to-Play players will become a part of this same player pool of over a half a million passionate players actively playing our game every month. So if you haven’t tried yet, you have no excuse to not be playing one of the most exciting multiplayer experiences on the PS3— it’s free! Join the adventure today!

Once you download the Free-to-Play game from the PS Store you can hop online and play for as long as you want, as much as you want, up to Level 15. Upon reaching level 15, you’re welcome to continue to play as long as you want without paying a cent. Unlocking the level cap will allow you to continue building up your profile right from where the level 15 cap stops you. If you choose not unlock the level cap or purchase anything you’ll be missing out on a slew of cool in-game items and downloadable content we have made for the game to date. Here’s a rundown of what you can unlock:"

If Pick up UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Game of the Year Edition from the in-game storeyou’re really enjoying the UNCHARTED™ 3: Multiplayer Free to Play and are looking for the full UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception experience, the best deal is to pick up the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Game of the Year Edition from the in-game store, which also launches today. This digital version of the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Game of the Year Edition includes all 12 DLC maps, all Co-Op multiplayer modes, and over 40 character skins.  Purchase the digital version of the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Game of the Year and essentially you’re getting the single player game free!

If you already own UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception and you are a long time Multiplayer participant we’re giving you some very special gifts as a way of saying thank you. Next time you log in online you’ll see a custom Naughty Dog Paw on your rank icon and you’ll receive the Naughty Dog Paw shirt for your custom characters.

Also, to celebrate the launch of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Multiplayer Free-to-Play we’re getting more colorful. Every character item and every character skin in multiplayer will now have more color options. These new color options are completely free.   

During the coming months over 40 additional DLC items will be made available. Every DLC drop will have a theme and we’ll be unveiling that content here on the Naughty Dog Blog, over on the PlayStation Blog, and on our Free-to-Play webpage.

Patch 1.17 was released recently. It includes some big changes you can read about on the Naughty Dog Blog. For instance, we’ve added another tier to our Tournament. It’s the Platinum level and we have some very cool permanent Platinum level prizes for people who achieve this prestigious level. 

We've also updated The Lab for this week. The Lab for this week is 5 versus 5 Team Deathmatch with Hammer and Uzi only. Fire it up and play with some new friends!

We can’t wait to welcome all the new players into our community. Happy Fortune hunting! See you online!"

 

Time to discuss. Free Naughty Dow Paw shirt? Cool. :smileyhappy:

What I really want to know is that are players going to have access to co-op?

It seems the entire MP portion including Co-op will be in the F2P version since if they buy the full version they also get the Single Player & All the DLC as well.

SP + MP = 46GB

 

46 x 2 = 92GB free space required to download & install it

Brace yourselves...

You always need double the amount of space to download & install stuff from the PS store.

So can't they do it like DC Universe where the file from the PS Store is 128MB, then once you connect to Sony Online's server you download the actual game which is around 16GB.. Maybe Naughty Dog will set up something like that I doubt Sony would allow a game to take up 92GB that's just crazy lol.

It won't take up 92GB. You just need 46GB (permanent HDD space) to download it and 46GB (temporary HDD space) to "unzip" and install it.

Uncharted 2 is 20GB and it requires 40GB of free space to download & install it.
