Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has confirmed today that Uncharted 3 Multiplayer: Animal Themed PS3 DLC is out this month.

Below are the details, to quote: April is http://www.aspca.org/about-us/aspca-april/ and we're honoring this with some animal themed items for your UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer characters.

First off, we have some very special and limited DLC available for purchase this month. Pogo and Trumpet, our resident Naughty Dogs, are now immortalized on custom t-shirts and weapons. All proceeds from the sales of these items will go to a charity that supports the prevention of cruelty to animals.

These items are currently available now in North America individually and as a bundle, and will go on sale later in the month in all other regions. These items are only available for the month of April, so grab them before they're gone.

We will be launching all our Animal themed character parts DLC globally this month. The full list of all the Animal theme parts on sale is outlined over on our http://www.naughtydog.com/games/uncharted_freetoplay/ page.

We'll also have a bundle for all the animal themed parts that includes the exclusive T-Rex Head for Talbot. Additionally, we are posting up a bundle of our Oddball themed parts with an exclusive bonus item - the Fireball T-Shirt - as well this month. Check out the in-game store or the PlayStation Store to see when these bundles are available for purchase.

One of the coolest things about the http://www.naughtydog.com/games/uncharted_animal will be the new Tournament rewards that can be earned. You can earn the Croc Gun and Mr. Croc Shirt as http://www.naughtydog.com/games/uncharted_tournament/ rewards.

If you hit the gold tier you can earn the unique Snake Eyes T-shirt. The Shade Raptor Mask for Drake and Shade Dive Helmet for Talbot are achieved by reaching Platinum status.

Buy tickets to enter into the weekly http://www.naughtydog.com/games/uncharted_tournament/ and unlock these items as a testament to your outstanding gameplay ability.

The Lab Playlist will remain as it is until mid-May as we're in the process of testing new Block Mesh Lab Maps and working on finishing The Last of Us. We will update you once we have new Labs rolling out again.
