Yes, that headline is not a ruse. There is a way to get early access to Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’s complete multiplayer component before the game hits shelves on November 1, 2011. All you have to do is hightail it to your local Subway and… Wait. What?!
Yes, it’s true. The most evil, dastardly promotion in the history of mankind is upon us. Sony, Naughty Dog and Subway are in cahoots, ladies and gentlemen, bringing us the complete Uncharted 3 multiplayer experience if we sell our souls and become Jared Fogle for a day:
Here’s how it works:
If you go to a nearby Subway between September 29-November 11 and get something to drink, you’ll find a special promotion code on the cup. That code is your ticket into multiplayer heaven. As long as you enter that code into your PlayStation Network account before November 1st, you’re set to enjoy Uncharted 3’s multiplayer early (how early has not yet been revealed, but expect sometime in October).
However, if you miss the mark and forget to redeem your coupon before the cut-off of November 1st, you can still wrangle yourself a solid prize as long as you turn in your ticket by November 11th. You might not be able to play Uncharted 3 multiplayer early, but you’ll at least get to choose from seven free days of DC Universe Online, an Uncharted 3 dynamic PS3 theme, an Uncharted 3 Fortune Hunter Bounty ability pack, an Uncharted 3 Drake multiplayer skin, an Uncharted 3 multiplayer weapon skin or a virtual Subway cup and costume for PlayStation Home.
…. Yes, we are not making up that last option. Who in their right mind would choose that? Who?!
So if you’re having withdrawals from Uncharted 3’s multiplayer after the beta shut its doors, this is your ticket back through those pearly gates. And trust us, we understand your addiction. Uncharted 3’s multiplayer is damn good. So plan a trip to Subway between September 29th and November 1st why don’t you.
