Sony and Naughty Dog are scheduled to roll out patch 1.13 for the pair’s Uncharted 3 today, with an enormous amount of changes, fixes and additions coming to the multiplayer component of the game.
“Patch 1.13 for Uncharted 3 multiplayer has been months in the making and it’s our biggest patch ever,” writes Naughty Dog, but we can also expect new downloadable content this month as well as regular online multiplayer tournaments.

That’s… a lot of stuff!
From August 15th, however, new Unchared 3 DLC will hit the PlayStation Store – here are a few details from Naughty Dog:
“The upcoming DLC can be unlocked either by earning the necessary in-game levels, completing specific treasure sets, or if you’d rather unlock a certain item quickly you can purchase it in the PS Store.”

Lastly, Uncharted 3 will soon benefit from something Naughty Dog calls ‘The Tournament System’ – the developer writes:
“The Tournament System ushers in a points-based competition that has three reward tiers which grant you special in-game weapons or items based on how well you played. Once you unlock a weapon or item it’s yours to use until the next tournament period.
“You can buy into a tournament using tournament tickets. You’ll always carry a balance of ten tickets per tournament period but you will be able to purchase more via the PS Store. A tournament leaderboard will be added to the leaderboards section so you can track your skill level among your friends.”

Naughty Dog has also confirmed that “new experimental block mesh maps” are coming to Uncharted 3’s Lab once patch 1.13 releases today”
“Block mesh maps are maps of coloured block mesh that have been designed by imaginative artists here at Naughty Dog to provide some wild and distinct multiplayer gameplay,” we’re told – here’s a look at one of the maps:
