  1. Again, are you going to add levels 76-100 to Uncharted 3? Is it too HARD to put them in the game? (xXGoldenArthurXx)

 

As we said last month, we won’t be including those in the game. We wanted to have a different leveling system than Uncharted 2 and make the levels more obtainable. The images (figure 1) you have in your signature aren’t anything we made.

 

Figure 1:

Figure 1- NOT ND APPROVED    

 

I Understand :'( Thank you for adding the new legacies though, without those legacies I would still be bored at max rank at 3rd legacy Smiley Tongue          

 

2.  Do you read co-op threads? (AliMakaveli)

 

Yes, we’ve seen these threads.  We don’t comment on all threads. We don’t have anything to add to these threads. We’ve addressed our plans for co-op in the past and we have no plans to add anything to co-op in future patches. It’s a matter of time, resources, and focusing what time and resources we do have available towards the multiplayer content you all play the most. Which happens to be competitive multiplayer. We added all our co-op content for Uncharted 3 via DLC and in earlier patches.  

 

Awww :'( I like Shade and Fort, but would you be willing to spend some time working on some co-op custom games options? If it is too much work, tell us so that we know why, otherwise some people might get mad Smiley Tongue

Please see what you can do about it, have a meeting and find out how much work it would be give us a few more settings and advanced for co-op. If it is not possible, tell us... I will understand and will be happy to hear that you tried.

 

3.  Is Revenge going to be tweaked in any way? (RevisIsland78)

 

Yes, revenge grenades will no longer damage teammates. This happens when patch 1.15 hits.

 

Thank you. I am now 100% fine with revenge. It is a booster that gets you kills when you get killed, so it does whay it needs to do, just like cloaked cloaks you and monkey man makes you climb faster.

Now it does what it needs to do, and teammates do not have to suffer. Great job with the change! Smiley Very Happy

 

4.  Will we ever get the PAX PRIME AK and Para 9???? (SteepMatt)

 

The PAX items were meant to be PAX and US only exclusives. It’s what we agreed to with the people at PAX. We had some leftover codes for certain PAX items and will be posting some up randomly on the forums before November 1st.

 

I wish I was able to go to a PAX Event Smiley Sad

Don't worry, I understand why you can't sell the items, or give them for free. You are just making sure you keep the promise you made to PAX, you guys probably signed a contract so there is no going back now.

 

5.  Please, for the love of your own Uncharted characters and your community who asked them since Uncharted 2, can you try and release a Classic Skin Pack #4?? (Luxis)

 

At the onset of Uncharted 3, we released over 25 skins that were classic themed. We wanted to give you more new content after that so we went ahead and made more new skins. It’s never as simple as us having the (audio, character, etc.) files so we can simply put those old files into the new game. There’s a ton of reworking, optimization, and tweaking to make those classic files work in our new game with our new systems, new animations and look. It’s also a matter of what time and resources we can devote to making these items work in the new game. 

A classic skins pack 4 will not be coming. However, your additional colors for character customization will be coming after patch 1.15.

 

Ok Smiley Tongue Glad to see the colors, it's all I eally want skin-wise anymore, since I already have all the skins and hope to get the Djinn Smiley Very Happy

If you have a chance, can you tell us if 1.15 will allow charcter variations to use the 3rd booster trick? Or if you made some more character weapons? If not, thats Ok Smiley Sad

 

6.  Instead of answering only 10 questions each month, could you answer questions on the forums all the time? I don't mean every question ever, but just pop in to busy threads and actually, you know, post?? (Xdye7)

 

We recognize that not all your concerns get addressed as you post them in the forums. We also realize that some of the busy threads don’t get addressed until late in the thread cycle. It’s the nature of development. We communicate with you as much as we have the time to attribute given everything we have going on. Sometimes we’ll read a thread and simply see if we can make it happen in the game if it makes sense and we have time and resources to make it happen. Sometimes we just don’t have an answer for your question. Sometimes we’re testing something to put into the game that we don’t want to tell you about yet because frankly, we’re not sure it works yet or it’s so cool we want to keep it under wraps until we really know how to communicate it outwardly via proper channels. All said, we’re reading, we’re observing and we’re communicating with you as much as we have time and answers to contribute. We’ll continue to try to answer as much as we can, when we can, and how we can. Thank you for understanding and your patience.

 

You're welcome for being patient Smiley Happy

Thank you for doing this Q&A and communicating with us, and keep up the good work!

 

7.  How come your servers have gone down, randomly, like 15 times since retail launch? How come that essentially never happened on UC2? Is it any indication of the poor quality of this game?  (SLEAZE_IT_UP)

 

For Uncharted 2 we used different servers, had a smaller player pool, and different networking structure.  They went down from time-to-time too but you likely don’t remember it as acutely as it was many years ago now.

 

For Uncharted 3, most of our server down time has been about maintenance. Players will hop on when servers are undergoing maintenance. We need to reset them to keep them functioning properly from time-to-time.  It’s not an indication of quality but rather indication of a growing population of players and the advancements in server management and technology that we’re dealing with.

 

Ah ok Smiley Tongue I get it, it's like resetting your router sometimes to get it to broadcast a better signal Smiley Tongue

 

8.  Will you increase your support for more tournaments? (iceyfire54312)

 

Patch 1.15 will see an overhaul of the tournament system. Details on the changes will be up on the Naughty Dog blog before the end of the month.

 

Also we’re working with Sony closely to help active community tournament organizers and crews like Fragged Nation and Big2Krew to bolster their tournaments. Keep your eyes peeled for news about these tournaments in the future.

 

Looking forward to the tournament changes, maybe it will make the difference between silver tier and Gold Tier for me Smiley Very Happy

Hopefully me and L3G3ND4RY will have our clan ready by the time the FN tournaments are up, we wana win some prizes and bragging rights Smiley Very Happy

 

9.  Do you plan on adding any new customization items like you did with 1.13? (Fakehound)

 

Not for 1.15 but we are working on ideas for future patches.

 

Thanks ND, Keep up the good work Smiley Happy

 

10.  Are you planning any special anniversary items to give away for the Year One mark such as the Anniversary Drake skin, Anniversary Guns, Anniversary Emblem or Anniversary Shirts for the Custom Hero/Villain? (I-Like-Pie45)

 

We are very aware of the anniversary and will hopefully have some announcements for you. Some big things are coming for Uncharted 3 multiplayer but we’re not sure everything will be in line to make the announcements for the anniversary.  As for in-game anniversary items, we don’t have anything planned.

 

Ok, Looking forward to it Smiley Very Happy

Glad to see that we are getting something for the anniversary Smiley Happy

I wasn't expexting any event items anyways, you already told uss you have no plans for making event skins Smiley Tongue

 

11.  Is Yemen Haunted? (shadowlibraboy) Re: http://youtu.be/yUfdoa3BA6I

 

WE WANT TO BELIEVE. Nah, you just happened upon a glitch in a match.

Smiley Very Happy Ok Smiley Tongue

It was a pretty nice kill though don't you think? I am now a ghost hunter Smiley Very Happy

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question, and making it an 11th question so that no-one can complain about it Smiley Happy


Great Q&A, keep it up Smiley Very Happy

Thank you for the quick responses Smiley Happy

Oh that's cool. You answer a Yemen related question, but not the one that regards a serious issue.

To quote scootgar: It just makes sense! (NOT!)


They Answered it as an 11th question, so do not complain.

Eric-ND is just the middle man, no need to shoot the messenger. 

It makes sense for ND to focus on competitive, it gets more play time and demands more attention. 

 

And as for character skins, just be happy we are getting colors.  I understand that certain skins like Wetsuit Elena and Heist Flynn may be your favorite characters, but they already said multiple times they have no plans to implement them, and are short on time and resources to bring these characters to UC3.   Try to just accept that and move on, in the grand scheme of things characters are not important. 


Eric represents ND here, what do you really expect?

 


I expect people to respond to him with with some character, instead of throwing fits that they don't have a certain skin (that half of them probably wont use, and only demand it cause it's something to complain about) .  All he can do is relay the info to the other devs on the team, and if they don't find it feasible to do, then he has to bring the bad news.   Then you guys jump down his throat for something that he has no control over.

 

It's been a year since the game has came out, just be happy that they are still supporting the game in other ways, most devs would have been long gone by now.   Character skins should not be priority right now, they should focus on the technical problems of the game.
