[edit] Airstrip

Main article: Airstrip

The first half of Airstrip.

Airstrip is an innovative two-part map. The first part of an online match on Airstrip takes place as a cargo plane is beginning its taxi down a runway. The player is able to move from the plane to the convoy of trucks that are chasing the aircraft. After the cargo plane takes off, the second half of the match begins. This takes place in an aircraft-style hangar, which allows for a much more conventional mode of gameplay. During this second half, fighter planes ascend on the hangar, killing any players that wander into the planes' gunfire.[1]

Airstrip was one of the first maps revealed as being in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception multiplayer,[1] and was made playable during the beta phase of the game's multiplayer component.[2]

[edit] Chateau

Main article: Chateau

One of Chateau's courtyards.

Chateau takes place in a French setting, and the focal point of the map is a chateau, which offers many opportunities for close quarters combat. There are courtyards on either side of the building, with turret guns overlooking both courtyards. During online matches, the chateau is set alight and an area of the roof collapses, killing anyone stood beneath the area of collapsing roof.

Chateau was one of the first maps revealed as being in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception multiplayer,[1] and was made playable during the beta phase of the game's multiplayer component.[2]

Desert Village is based on the village in the desert seen in chapter 19 of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, The Settlement. Desert Village is quite an enclosed space, which means that close quarter combat is the main form of combat on the map. The remains of the village - which includes small walls and broken pillars - offer many forms of cover for players. During gameplay, a sandstorm engulfs the village, which obscures players' vision.

Desert Village was first revealed to reporters at the 2011 Gamescom conference,[3] and was first made playable during the Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception multiplayer early access promotion run by restaurant franchise Subway.[4]

The layout of Facility is the same as it was in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, with the main addition being that the whole setting of map has been changed to that of a snowy tundra.

When Highrise returned to Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, it was seen several weeks before the game's public release,as it was included as one of the maps in the second week of the multiplayer early access promotion run by restaurant franchise Subway.[6][7]

Similar to Airstrip, London Underground is a new innovate two-part map, first introduced during the Subway multiplayer early access promotion. The first part takes place on two moving trains, where players are able to navigate along and between both trains.[4]
