Uncharted 3 adds animal-themed DLC for charity

Developer Naughty Dog giving proceeds from t-shirts and weapon skins to a charity that supports the prevention of cruelty to animals.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's multiplayer modes will get new animal-themed DLC this month, with proceeds going to a charity supporting the prevention of cruelty to animals.

Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra's dog Trumpet.

Throughout April, players of Naughty Dog's now free-to-play shooter will be able to purchase t-shirts and weapon skins featuring Pogo and Trumpet, the pets of studio co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra.

Other animal-themed content will also be made available in April, including premium animal masks including, among others, a t-rex, shark, and panda. April's Uncharted 3 tournament rewards are also animal themed, and feature a raptor mask, a Mr Croc t-shirt, and a crocodile print weapon camo.

Players can get more details on Uncharted 3's April content from the Naughty Dog site.

Uncharted 3 went free-to-play at the end of February, allowing PlayStation 3 owners to reach level 15 without having to purchase the game. Over 350,000 players have downloaded Uncharted 3 since it was released as free-to-play.

"Other animal-themed content will also be made available in April, including premium animal masks including, among others, a t-rex, shark, and panda" 

are they retarded? if they against animal cruelty then why they sell panda mask so other players could head shot you as a panda???

i think it's nothing but a cashgrab masked with good intentions

How about taking care of the Hungry Homeless Humans first.

Great idea that I wouldn't mind seeing some other well off games implement. A way to help donate to worthy causes while having something fun to show for it.

I love animals! I don't like to see people abuse up on poor animals.  I'll sue against Babe store who beats up animals for furs off the animals' skin.  That's not cool.  I would donate more money to support animals.

Nice gesture from ND, kudos to you guys.

P.S. Fuck anybody who abuse animals, I hope they go straight to hell after their last breath.

I bet PETA seriously don't know what to do with this..

"It's raising money for the protection of animals.. but it.. it's... it's through a violent video game?!" *spontaneously combusts*

Good work Naughty Dog, ever a favourite of mine.

Respect +1

(just for the record I actually think this charitable cause is genuinely brilliant, not enough is done for the prevention of cruelty against animals, governments rarely commit any resources, only charities)

What's wrong with human suffering?

Ok, i may be alone, but this actually sounds stupid. Why not use the money to pay to help babies who have cancer? Or animals with cancer? (if they are so keen on the animal part) or any other number of stuff that can actually make a difference! I mean really, why donate to a company that just does animal cruelty prevention? I mean i don't think it's not a good concept, but other than the cases where there are stupid people that don't even try to hide it and flaunt the fact that they kill 10 cats a day i can't really see it do any good.

I hate people who abuse their animals. 

I would like it, though, if the animals came back and abused their abusive owners.

So, it's always nice seeing charity (or support) to a cause such as this.

Keep up the good work.

Trumpet is pretty much the most adorable dog in the entire world and I want a dog like that.

 Though I hate how Uncharted has microtransactions, at least these do serve a very good purpose. Hopefully they'll be a big seller.

Aww that's just Too Cute little puppy you got there but anyways, I got burn out from Uncharted 3 MP since Launch so it looks like I will not be supporting your Animal Cruelty but however Naughty Dog I would suggest you guys do this on your new game Last of Us considering it will have MP and I was going to get TLOU and try the MP anyway.

@Nibraybirk Feed the animals to the Hungry Homeless Humans, that seems to fix both problems.

@HipHopBeats well.. i agree on the horses part and the U3 sucks part 

the rest is a bit hippy 

true, putting a lash on a dog can be sort of cruel, but a dog is an animal 

an animal that shits when it wants and doesn't know the etticate of the human world 

and trust me on this, many niggers in africa live worser then street dogs 

so it's not only the animals suffering

@PSBEATSALLDEAL 

what is your obsessive beef with multiplayer?  Nothing but whining.  Are you THAT bad at MP games?  I'm amazed you can even get on here to comment being such a socially inept wuss

 @PSBEATSALLDEAL 

I agree. Really hate how unbalanced it is. Not to mention how it has microtransactions on a (formerly) full priced game.

 @daabulls23 @abehpfan Yeah, except they also had the same microtransactions when it wasn't FTP. (And sorry for the late response.)
