You can now play the multiplayer component of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for free even if you don't own the game.
Following in the footsteps of Killzone 3, Sony has now released Uncharted 3's multiplayer as a standalone free download on PSN.
The free-to-play model takes away a huge barrier that exists for many players. With this model, people can check out the game without having to pay a dime, and in fact play it in perpetuity without ever paying a cent,” game director Justin Richmond said on the PlayStation Blog.
In this freemium era, however, ‘free-to-play' doesn't mean that it's all free. While you can play the competitive multiplayer modes in the Uncharted 3 for free, the sublime online co-op missions will be paid content.
Richmond has, however, assured that those who download the free-to-play version won't receive a diluted experience. The free-to-play version puts players in the same matchmaking as the full retail game. This means that players are getting the full Uncharted experience, not some watered down version,” he said.
