UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta: New Content for Week 2

Like UNCHARTED

Welcome to the second week of the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta!

We’re exceptionally excited as today is the day the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta becomes available to everyone on PSN! By the end of today, anyone and everyone with access to the PlayStation Store should be able to view and download the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta – no codes required!

As we head into the second week of the UNCHARTED 3 Beta, we’re updating the available gametypes to the following:

July 4
to
July 9
Gametypes:
Team Deathmatch, Free For All, Team Objective, Hardcore, Co-op Hunter
Maps:
Airstrip, Chateau

You’ll notice Team Objective and Co-op Hunter as new additions for this week. I’ve been liking the Co-op Hunter gametype lately – the twist of adding in human players into what seems to be a Co-op mode is quite intriguing. You can catch some clips of Co-op Hunter in action in the video below, or on our YouTube channel:

Along with the update to the available gametypes, we’ve updated the video playlist for UNCHARTED TV to add one awesome fan created video. We’re always on the lookout for great fan created content – if you’ve got something in the works, drop us a line on the UNCHARTED 3 Fan Created Content forum on NaughtyDog.com.

You’ll also want to check out yesterday’s IGN article as they caught up with Robert Cogburn, our multiplayer game designer, to get a temperature check on the first week of the Beta – and what’s the deal with players leveling far beyond the level cap of 25 originally mentioned back when the Beta started. Robert also revealed the astounding 600,000 unique players that participated in the first week of the Beta – we’re looking forward to seeing that number grow quite a bit now that the Beta is available as a public download!

If you didn’t catch the patch notes last week and were wondering what was contained within the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta 1.01 patch, we’ve listed all of the updates below:

Relevant minor updates prior to 1.01

  • Temporarily removed Plunder gametype from matchmaking
  • Added in Free For All to replace Plunder
  • Temporarily disabled Facebook integration

Gameplay

  • Removed Yemen from map rotation in Free For All. Yemen will return during its regularly scheduled week.
  • Temporarily removed Cursed from Power Play rotation.

Technical

  • Fixed issue where a crash would occur when backing out of multiplayer.
  • Fixed frequent slowing of framerate that could lead to the Beta freezing.
  • Fixed a crash involving Emblems.

Don’t forget to leave your feedback on the Beta in the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta Discussion forum – we want to hear your likes, your dislikes and any issues you have experienced. We’re counting on our community to be extremely vocal to help us shape the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer experience to be one of the best!

I’ve liked every mode up until this point…. Co-op hunter not only makes little sense when starting…. it made me feel vastely out numbered when I had to deal with dumb AI and Human opponents at the same time. I was constantly trying to pick the players out because they were a world more dangerous due to higher reasoning capability only to get shot in the back buy a randomly spawning heavy with a shotgun……

I’ll try to give this another go, but balancing really needs to be applied and something needs to be done about the mode.

Also is it just me or is the amount of money needed per level taken a sharp turn up once I hit level 24? I don’t like levels that take 800 years to reach. Fix this.

play it the other day and no freeze up but it did happen once only. May need to buy new PS3 and replace my PS3 Slim with new model slim. Sony you guys need to make PS3 with better design to work better called it PS3U then making PS4, with PS3U you can make it more better slim model with power brick. And add more memory ram to it like 800MB or more. This would be the time to increase the PPE to 2 or 3 and SPE to 18 or 21. And make it 22nm, if you did ur PS3U would be more powerful then the PS3 in everywhere possible.

    You’ll be able to play all of the required gametypes for the rewards – it’s only games of competitive and games of co-op, there’s no specific gametypes beyond that.

can you guys give us a test of the Co-op STORY MISSIONS (like the ones found in Uncharted 2 I mean, with three players). those were really the highlight of Uncharted 2′s multi-player to me.

Anyone else get the addicting Multiplayer feeling With this that they get with COD?

I Do, I think Naughty Dog was focused in the right direction. Although the Multiplayer isnt very deep at all (maybe because its just a beta) Its still ont he right track. If there was more perks and unlocks and Guns in the game i think this would rival my time for Call of Duty.

Props to ND

I can play the beta with no problems, but my ps3 freezes, I’d say 3 times on 4, when I try to quit the beta, it’s annoying! Anyone else has this problem?

The game seems amazing so far. I only have two gripes. One is in the co-op arena, the game tends to stall on s if a player(s) jump in and out during Siege missions. I’ve found that usually you have to either suicide, or drop a grenade in which all players take some damage to break the glitch. Otherwise I find myself standing around for whatever time may be left in the game, or I quit and lose whatever money/medals/treasures I may have foundt. My second gripe is the multiplayer versus modes. I’ve only played a few games of these online as the game play seemed to be very off-balanced. Two examples. I was able to sneak behind a player on the Chateau level, I meleed him 3 times before he could turn around, and then he only had to melee me once to kill me. That was more than a little frustrating. Second ex., I was in a gunfight with a guy that had a sniper rifle and I had an AK. I offloaded two clips into him before he was able to shoot me on my second reload (the only round he fired that shot it’s mark), and I died from the one round. Haven’t played multiplayer versus since then. Still, I’m looking forward to what I’m sure will be another game of the year. Thanks Naughty Dog!!

Lovin this beta SOOOOOO much! I’m quickly becoming as addicted to it as I am to Black Ops as a previous reply said.

I do have one serious issue like others though, PLEASE, PLEASE fix the restart that it does to our PS3′s EVERYTIME you quit the beta application. Everyone i have asked in game has this same issue. Every single time you quit the beta it does a hard restart to your console. That cannot be good for it.

Also a question that Ive been to lazy to look up yet. LOL….What does the silver bargain booster do for you? I have unlocked silver level and the description says every time a kickback is used there will be a gold glow? What exactly is this doing and how is it beneficial to me?

Also, can you be a little more specific as to what the treasure hunter pack will give us in the full game for meeting the beta requirements? Just curious. Cant wait till September!

I was playing Co-op Hunter the other day, and my buddy and I had Gold Rush as a first mission. The other team kept killing us, and we were losing, but the score stood frozen at “Round 1 0:00″ for the longest time I had to leave game and forfeit money. A weak moment indeed…

+ dansadandy on July 5th, 2011 at 9:49 am said:

Fortunately Uncharted Beta does not freeze on me, but as an aside, my PS3 freezes when I connect online w/ NBA 2K11. I guess it’s strictly offline hooping =/

+ secularsage on July 5th, 2011 at 9:56 am said:

Where do we post bug reports? I’ve noticed quite a few glaring bugs, such as “Unknown String” appearing at the top of the scorebox during the end of a round.

Also, Co-Op Hunter is a nice mode, but the aforementioned clock bug (the game freezes at 0:00) makes the game difficult to enjoy.

+ Raiders-34 on July 5th, 2011 at 9:57 am said:

After playing and having fun with Coop Arena last week, I was looking forward to this week’s Coop Mode. But it disappointed me. It has some elements of Coop, but seems much more of a Competetive mode. Also I’m still a little unsure about the Retail Unlocks. Do we have to play 10 matches in each Team Deathmatch, Free For All, 3 Team etc, to unlock the booster pack? Or is it 10 matches total that can be spread around the different game modes?

+ MrPips on July 5th, 2011 at 9:57 am said:

Uncharted 3 BETA: Naughty Dog, people have been glitching on both Team Death Match maps going outside the map. Video’s of people glitching have been posted on youtube. My suggestion is make the locatations where people glitch to get banned from the game as soon as they go under the map, MrPips…

Uncharted 3 BETA: As you wait in the lobby and your friend logs on you send him an invite to join you but he doesn’t know you sent it because it doesn’t pop up on the screen to inform him so now you have to send him a personal message to let him know you sent him the invite. On Uncharted 2 the invite pops up on your screen to let you know your friend invited you.

Do you mind fixing the bug that causes the PS3 to restart after you exit the beta? With all due respect, I’m not going to play until this is fixed.

+ SpiritThief on July 5th, 2011 at 10:26 am said:

co op hunter is crazy broken for the hero side. You have to get lucky on that first rush to score once. Then its almost impossible to cap again.

Its just stupid playing the heroes in Hunter mode. Well its stupid in Hunter Mode to go after the objectives. Your better off just DMing.

It might be better if the Heroes didn’t always spawn at the very back of the map while the others pop out right on top of you.

I am loving it so far. The only complaint I have is when playing split screen multiplayer (which is an AWESOME FEATURE btw), is that the split screen is so tiny. because of the giant logo. Will this be improved in the final?

Loved the co op hunter and the fusion it creates between competitive and co op gameplay. Team objective reminds me of KZ3 warzone but much more frenetic pace, felt I always had a heart attack lol

+ T40Rs731N on July 5th, 2011 at 10:32 am said:

@Mr Pips

That isn’t possible (to ban people for going beyond the borders of the map.) because sometimes a glitch happens without intent, sometimes while dying (has to me on airstrip.) So, if the code were written that way, in a way to detect players off the map, it would be ludicrous to make the detection ban people rather than patch the hole in which they went out of play.

I’m not a fan of the Co-op Hunter mode. I’m not keen on having the AI on one team, and then swapping over to the other team for the next round. I like to play AGAINST AI, not with. It seems unbalanced.
