Uncharted 3 Beta v1.01 Patch Shows Technical Improvements

For the past few days, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has been the talk of the town. Its closed beta just began, and PlayStation Plus members have been treated to a game that’s going to rock this world in the latter half of 2011. But it isn’t all gravy; some users have complained about freezing issues, as well as some other minor bugs. Knowing Naughty Dog, we knew it’d be addressed pronto, and so it was.

The Uncharted 3 beta has received its first patch, titled v1.01, and it has several fixes and adjustments included which should ease the minds of many. Below is the full change log:

  • Temporarily removed Plunder gametype from matchmaking
  • Added in Free For All to replace Plunder
  • Temporarily disabled Facebook integration
  • Removed Yemen from map rotation in Free For All. Yemen will return during its regularly scheduled week.
  • Temporarily removed Cursed from Power Play rotation
  • Fixed issue where a crash would occur when backing out of multiplayer
  • Fixed frequent slowing of framerate that could lead to the Beta freezing
  • Fixed a crash involving Emblems
  • There has been some mixed feedback for Uncharted 3‘s multiplayer so far, namely with the addition of kickbacks, and noticeable gameplay changes. If you’ve played the beta, let us know what you think so far in the comments below, as well as whether or not the latest patch has improved stability.
