Uncharted 3 patch 1.02 adds alternate aim setting and more

If you’re of the bunch that took issue with Uncharted 3‘s altered aiming system, you’ll undoubtedly be pleased to hear that Naughty Dog has begun rolling out patch 1.2, which adds in a new aiming system that is more in line with Uncharted 2.

The addition was made in response to Uncharted fans who felt that Uncharted 3‘s gunplay felt “off”. Rather than brush off the complaints and urge them to accept it as-is, Naughty Dog reached out to the community and actually offered the chance for a few fans to drop by their office and help them iron out a resolution to the problem.

With patch 1.02, players will be able to head in to the options menu and select an “Alternate Aim” setting, which should bring it more in line with the feel and responsiveness seen in Uncharted 2.

In addition to the new aim setting, Naughty Dog has added in quite a lot of fixes and adjustments in the patch. To see what’s what, check out the patch notes below, straight from Naughty Dog.
