Naughty Dog and Sony will be shutting down the servers to the multiplayer component of Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3 and The Last Of Us for PS3 on September 3, 2019. The Last Of Us Remastered‘s multiplayer component on PS4 will still remain live after September 3.
As a farewell gift, Naughty Dog is making all of the Multiplayer DLC for these three games free until September 3. All you have to do is go to the PlayStation Store on the PS3 and download it.
Naughty Dog offered a farewell statement in a blog post:
After nearly 10 years of operation, on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 [5:00 PM PT] we will be bidding farewell to the multiplayer servers for Naughty Dog games on the PlayStation 3, including Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, The Last of Us, and The Last of Us Left Behind. It’s bittersweet to say the least. Uncharted and The Last of Us multiplayer on the PS3 are defining entries in Naughty Dog’s history and we’ve been honored to support the passionate communities that have grown around them for almost a decade. We have so many fond memories from playing alongside you throughout the years.
I am sad to see these modes fade away. I especially enjoyed The Last of Us’ multiplayer for how unique and tactical it was; however, all good things must come to an end. Plus, you can still play The Last of Us’ multiplayer on PS4.
