Welcome to the January Edition of this monthly Q&A thread!
If you have some questions that you would like to ask Naughty Dog then here is your opportunity to ask them!
Up until about the 10th of January you will be able to post your questions regarding the Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience here in this thread. Usually 10 questions from this thread will be selected and answered by the Naughty Dog Development Team.
Once the replies are ready they will be posted in this thread for your perusal. What would you like to ask Naughty Dog this month?
Please post one question per reply so that it is clear which questions are receiving the most kudos. If your reply contains more than one question or if you post multiple replies in a row then the Naughty Dog Development Team will ignore your questions.
Please remember to post up one question per reply. AGAIN we’re going to ignore your questions if you have more than one in reply or post up multiple replies in a row. Otherwise we don’t really know what question is getting the most kudos and we might not be answering the question you want answered or the one the community has given the most kudos.
We evaluate the weapon mod balance as the matches continue to roll along. We feel we’re in a pretty good spot with it right now.
2. Will the dead body glitch ever be completely fixed? (Matthewsike1st)
We are working on this. It’s something that will be fixed in a future patch. The airwalking glitch will be addressed as well.
3. Do you have any technical fixes we can expect in the upcoming patch? (tack129)
Yes. We’ll detail them once it launches.
4. What will we expect for 2013 as of dlc? (lII-Venom-lII)
There are a slew of new character parts heading your way. We’ll have some information on these in the coming months.
We continue to look at ways we can tweak and improve the gameplay for multiplayer but we have reached a point at which we feel the aim assist works well for almost all players. We won’t be adjusting it at this time.
6. Can you please explain the Matchmaking process in Multiplayer? (ironsword7)
Matchmaking goes through a series of nine steps. Each step has three criteria that must be met in order to join a game. They are geo radius, ping and rank filter. All three criteria start small and increase with each step. The second to last step searches for a game under 200 ping only and the last step has no criteria and just finds any game regardless of any criteria.
7. Will you please give us the option to install Multiplayer to hard disk? (SheenuTheLegend)
Hmmm. Good idea. Ask again in a couple of weeks. J
8. Do you plan on releasing all dlc maps for free? (Huskers1598)
Not at this time. It’s possible it’ll happen in the future but we are releasing all our Block Mesh Lab maps for free in the Lab playlists and will continue to do so. Block Mesh Lab maps will soon be available for longer periods of time in the future. If things change we’ll let you know.
9. How many players are still playing the multiplayer worldwide today? (FredFai)
Ballpark figures we tend to see over half a million players every month but this changes from month to month, of course.
10. Can you please make the 3rd booster trick available for the DLC skin variants? (shadowlibraboy)
We put the Easter egg of the 3rd booster trick in for the main skin because we want them to either be rare or limited but since we have so many more skins available then were thought we would we’re considering adding it for more skins in the future. We’ll let you know if we do.
Why do you like noobs a lot? You put in the game cheap stuff like accurate blindfire and other things to make it easier for them noobs. Noobs come and go. They don't really buy DLC. Us veterans and people who have skill who have stayed in the Uncharted franchise are more likely to buy DLC.
