The latest multiplayer update adds a 5-on-5 Team Deathmatch, featuring riot shields, arm micros and grenades only.
"Grab a shield for some cover then lob some grenades or spray uzi gunfire in all directions as you try to take down your opponents," reads the developer description.
Kickback and boosters are also disabled, increasing the effectiveness of melee attacks from behind.
The new Lab playlist also comes with a fix designed to correct issues with DLC maps not appearing under certain circumstances.
The update is available now and appears ahead of what is described as the 'Godzilla' of patches.
Version 1.13 is due to go live on August 14, adding Trophies for each DLC pack, as well as "an exciting new system, fresh DLC and some gameplay fixes".
Previous updates have added The Lab and Elimination Mode from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception sold 3.8 million copies on the day of its release in November 2011.
