Uncharted 3 multiplayer opens early with Subway promotion

uncharted 3 multiplayer opens with subway promotionUncharted 3: Drake’s Deception doesn’t hit shelves until November 1, but anyone looking to get an early start on the game’s multiplayer mode should locate the nearest Subway sandwich shop.

Yes, you read that correctly: head to Subway for Uncharted 3.

As part of a partnership between Uncharted 3 developer Naughty Dog and the chain of sandwich shops, anyone who buys one of Subway’s specially marked 30-ounce drinks will get an early-access code for the game’s multiplayer mode. The campaign kicked off October 1 and will run through the rest of the month.

And while the early access to Uncharted 3‘s multiplayer mode is actually a pretty sweet (if sort of weird) deal, there’s also a long list of in-game items and cheats available via the Subway promotion. Along with a special “foot-long taunt” players can unlock, the promotion also includes some unique weapons, skins, and abilities.

What’s more, all of the leveling and unlockables achieved during the Subway promotion carry over into your player profile when the full game hits shelves.

Sure, it’s a pretty bizarre promotion, but we’re not going to argue with getting early access to Uncharted 3.

You can watch the official ad for the promotion below, as well as a video posted on the Playstation Blog that provides more details about the promotion and what you can unlock.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is scheduled for release November 1.
