New Uncharted 3 DLC bewilderment

Confusion surrounding new Uncharted 3 DLC has raised many questions and this in turn has amounted to Naughty Dog adding to an earlier response yet things do not seem much clearer at present. Back in January ND informed players on its blog that becoming a member of the Fortune Hunters’ Club would provide users with “all currently available and any upcoming DLC packs for Uncharted 3.”

In addition, an exclusive Fortune Hunters’ Club theme will be available to let you know when new Uncharted 3 DLC hits right from the XMB of your PlayStation 3. Highlighting the word “upcoming” Gaming Everything report on the confusion and Naughty Dog’s response, as a fan questioned whether any future map/character DLC packs are expected and if FHC members will receive a discount.

Naughty Dog developers ensured the fan that more DLC is on its way although it will not be map packs, and the Fortune Hunters’ Club program is over so no discount will be available. Informing the user that upcoming DLC is reasonably priced they also confirmed that this would allow players to obtain cool things that customize your character. A notice seen on the PlayStation Blog prior to the launch of Uncharted 3 said the FHC DLC program gives us the first four multiplayer map packs and the first three multiplayer skin packs for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and the first release will be on its way in November.

Although only seven multiplayer packs were promised in the first place, no deals to add more were made to keep customers happy. ND community boss Arne Meyer commented about what he called an “unfortunate choice of words in that post when marketing’s message was supposed to clear up how much content was upcoming as part of the FHC.” Some gamers don’t understand the confusion considering those who got the map packs and skins they were promised have no need to complain.

Many feel that having the Fortune Hunters’ Club should entitle them to all the new upcoming DLC and in future, they will give this a miss. In other relative news last week, we informed our readers that significant improvements are to be found in the upcoming Uncharted 3 Patch 1.13 and this sizable update will be available on the 14th of August with a large amount of fixes explained. If a fourth edition of Uncharted comes out would you still contemplate becoming a member of the Fortune Hunters’ Club?
