Uncharted 3 multiplayer for EU PS Plus members this week

We can practically taste Uncharted 3 now, but the month’s wait for Nathan Drake’s next is going to be a long one. That wait will be lessened somewhat for EU PS Plus members though, as a portion of the game’s multiplayer component will go live for download this week.

We’re not sure just how much of the game will be included in this offering, but apparently we’ll be able to carry over the progress we make online to the retail copy.

South Africa, The Middle East, Australia and New Zealand will be able to get in on the action, too. There will also be chances for non-Plus members to sign up for combat.

It should tide us over until Uncharted 3‘s full release on November 1 in the US and November 2 in the EU.
