Uncharted 3 to get huge update as Free to Play gets set to debut

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has been updated to version 1.17, which according to Naughty Dog sets the game up for the "biggest update to Uncharted 3 Multiplayer yet".

Late last week it was accidentally leaked on the PS blog that the multiplayer section of Uncharted 3 was going free to play for PlayStation Plus members. So we have a seeking suspicion this "biggest update yet" is related to that.

The second update arrives tomorrow, so we don't have to wait long to find out.

Here's Patch 1.7's notes.

That's one hell of a update. I'll let my console download the update on its own via PS+ :)

I played the first one, played the demo of the second one which I thought was fantastic and forgot about the third. Need to get all three of them and plough through them!

I thought it was free if you owned the game. Wouldn't be surprised to see it appear on ps+ for the whole game soon

it just means if you don't own the game but have ps plus you can play it, i personally think this was done to stop people playing the tomb raider multiplayer, the timing is just too coincidental for me to think otherwise. It's a conspiracy.......but meh, sweet deal.

Tomb Raider is expected to have a great single player but multiplayer is expected to be poor! So good timing but to be honest this new Lara really seems to have more flavour to her than Drake

I have played TR and its REALLY good but quite a lot like Uncharted. IGN have a good review up for it at the moment thats pretty much spot on.
