Dust off that copy of Uncharted 3 that has been sitting in a pile with the rest of the fall-rush line-up since you beat it. Naughty Dog has announced that a March patch will bring a brand new co-op survival mode called “Shade Survival” to the game. While there are no gritty details on the mode just yet, the company has released the above screenshot of Nathan Drake hiding from some dudes on fire. Oooo.
Naughty Dog has described the image as “just a small taste of what you’ll need to get prepared for this fiery new game type.” I see what you did there, Naughty Dog…
In other Uncharted news, the next map pack, Flashback Map Pack #2, will debut on the PlayStation Network tomorrow for $9.99 a. The pack will include the Plaza, Temple, Train Wreck, and Village maps.
Let’s speculate on just what Drake will be fighting here: zombies on fire? Ghosts on fire? Zombie-ghosts on fire? How do you feel about a possible (apparent) supernatural element being added to game so firmly ground in realism — albeit with a healthy does of Indiana Jones-style historically-flavored grandeur?
