Upcoming pashmina-them-up Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be sporting a season pass for its multiplayer DLC.

Announced via the PlayStation Blog, Sony is calling it The Fortune Hunters' Club (naming these things season passes is so last season). The initiative allows savvy pre-buyers to slap down a discounted chunk of cash for the first four multiplayer map packs and the first three multiplayer skin packs.

The first wodge of content will arrive sometime in November, and the PS3 will notify you when packs are available to download.

But perhaps that isn't enough? Never fear: Sony is also chucking in a free premium XMB theme for people who take the plunge, so you can show off your Hunters' Club status to your mates.

The scheme is currently only confirmed in the US - who can purchase the pack now - but a UK announcement is likely. Sony is asking for $24.99 for the package, and says that the total price of buying the DLC piecemeal will be $45.00.

Season passes are becoming increasingly common in gaming, with recent weeks seeing similar schemes announced for Forza Motorsport 4 and Gears of War 3.

Uncharted 3 will be released exclusively for PS3 on November 2. A VideoGamer.com review is in the works.
