"We're kicking off the Easter week with a glimpse of what we have in store for all of you. We've heard some complaints over the course of Uncharted 3's lifetime and we wanted to make the most appropriate changes to the game."

 

Available: Globally - April 2, 2013 before 6:30pm PST.

 

 

GAMEPLAY

  • Fixed a number of exploits that have been present in the game
  • The M9's blindfire accuracy has been reduced by 5% for better overall balance
  • The aim assist on the Dragon Sniper has been reduced to remedy the "sticky aiming" problems we have heard from the community
  • In Team Objective, the Marked Man is now properly chosen if there are players joining. The Marked Man can no longer be a player that is joining a game.

 

TOURNAMENT

  • Fixed an issue with the game freezing because of an overabundance of items in the Tiers menu of the Tournament section
  • At 10 Platinum tier wins, the player will now have all tournament rewards unlocked permanently
  • Changed the way Tournament points are calculated. The player will now receive a bonus of 1,000 points if they win the game. The points calculated from kills, deaths, and assists are now unaffected by winning or losing a match.

 

TECHNICAL FIXES

  • Fixes to matchmaking to avoid party splits
  • Addressed several recurrent bugs

"Last but not least, deploying with this patch is a Double Cash Week AND a Rare Treasure Drop Week! Starting April 2nd at around 6:30pm PST, players will receive double the cash they normally obtain AND have a greater chance to find rare treasures. This event will last for one week, ending on Tuesday, April 9, at around 6:30pm PST."

 

"Happy fortune hunting!"

 

Discuss. I'm surprised that they actually did quite a lot of what they did here.

Oh wow, that's actually a really good patch, it doesn't cover some of the huge issues, but at least they are listening to people for once. Props to ND, good job.

Even the Tournament updates are good, I was going to skip over them but it's great to see it's not going to be as much of a gamble. And everything unlocked for 10 Platinum tiers? I may actually take part now.

Edit: LOL you got me, nicely written, but back to me hating ND though.

Not forever. Forever is casual.

Fine... But you know, sometimes "Naughty Dog" likes to be casual, ya know? Like how blindfire was geared more for casuals this entire time? :smileywink:
