UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception for PS3

Wow, this was a massive week for UNCHARTED 3! We kicked off the week on Monday by updating the available gametypes in the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta to provide more variety from the prior week.

Then, starting Tuesday, the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta was opened up for wide PSN access. The Beta is totally free and available from now until July 14th – there’s no excuse not to hop in and play at least a few matches!

One day after the Beta went fully public, we passed one million unique players in the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta. Not only that, but the player count is growing with each passing day! We couldn’t be prouder of our community coming out in such numbers to play in the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta.

Next week is the FINAL week in the Beta – we’ll be shutting down the servers on Thursday, July 14th – so be sure to get your fill of UNCHARTED 3 before it goes away for a few months. This will also be your last week to hit the requirements to receive the rewards we’re offering that will be active for the retail version of UNCHARTED 3 — rewards such as UNCHARTED 3 PSN Beta Tester Avatar, Treasure Hunter’s Starter Pack, in-game cash on day one and more.

On Sunday, July 10th, we’ll be updating the available gametypes and maps in the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta according to the schedule we released. We’ll be adding the never-before-seen Yemen map and it will be your first opportunity to play Co-op Adventure!

Don’t forget to visit the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta feedback forum and leave us your thoughts on the Beta and any issues you may have encountered. We’re counting on you to help us make the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer experience the best it can be!

Plus, head to your local SUBWAY restaurant in October for an exclusive opportunity to get access to the FULL UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer experience BEFORE UNCHARTED 3 is released! We’ll give you full details here on the PlayStation.Blog closer to October.

Hey Arne, loving the beta but just have a few questions.

When will player be getting the rewards that they’ve earned during the beta? Are we looking at receiving an email closer to the launch of the game, or perhaps after the beta is finished we’ll get an email shortly after that so we can claim our rewards?

I think people are wondering the same thing. =)

As usual, keep up the great work!

I can happily say that I am not the least bit surprised:) Good Job ND

+ lisatsunami on July 8th, 2011 at 3:16 pm said:

Hi, ND. I don’t do multiplayer because I suck, but I d/l’d the beta so I could get the eventual avatar & watch Unchartrd tv. Great that there’s so much interest so early out. Congratulations!

+ TomHoang on July 8th, 2011 at 3:17 pm said:

Thanks for supporting the beta ND!

Does the subway full multiplayer carry over to the full game…. does it have trophys? I had to ask lol

+ Airwalkinman17 on July 8th, 2011 at 3:28 pm said:

The BETA is REALLY awesome. I’m trying to get the word out on all the awesome exclusives this year has to offer. The BETA convinced a couple buyers that I know. I personally cannot wait until it comes out. Also REALLY lookin forward to Resistance 3. Thanks ND and SONY!

+ omnicide_66 on July 8th, 2011 at 3:30 pm said:

I gotta say that I am loving this new multiplayer. It will never be better than Gears of War 3 but it is a very close second. Great job Naughty Dog.

+ BLEACH-Fan on July 8th, 2011 at 3:30 pm said:

Congrats Naughty Dog you guys keep up the good work on this amazing game you’ll have my cash day one


27

+ tacotaskforce on July 8th, 2011 at 3:34 pm said:

Sad to see the Chateau go, but it’s such a wonderful map I guess you don’t need to playtest it anymore. Will we still be able to access the unlocked rewards even if we don’t buy UC3 right when it comes out?


28

+ insaneslayerfan on July 8th, 2011 at 3:37 pm said:

Thanks ND for such an awesome beta, keep it the way it is and don’t give us another 1.05 :)

Minor tweaks are need it and that is all.

+ angelspawn77 on July 8th, 2011 at 3:39 pm said:

Have a question regarding the full MP game we can get from subway, will this be a standalone MP version of the game or is this a temporary MP just until the game comes out? Meaning we can only have access to the full MP until the game releases, then the version from subway goes offline and we have to buy the game in order to continue playing the MP? Hope my question was clear enough.

Oh, and yes please fix the party issue, same thing happens to me like comment #2 said. Congrats on the 1 million players btw! I’m enjoying the beta and can’t wait until next week for the new map and co-op adventure!

+ DazeOfWar on July 8th, 2011 at 3:42 pm said:

Man looks like I need to really jump into some games this weekend. I didn’t realize there was rewards for hitting certain goals. Here’s hoping I can complete them all.

Congrats Naughty Dog. You deserve all the praise that you’re getting :) I can’t wait till November!

+ Shadow-Man_4 on July 8th, 2011 at 3:50 pm said:

I’m not really sure if I had played Free-for-All for 10 matches, I think about 6-8 matches, and that’s because I didn’t really have the time to do that. I had ALOT of freezing as soon as I start the game and when I actually finish connecting. The game used to freeze and the PS3 locks up and I can’t do anything but turn off the console.

This was fixed in 1.02, but as it sounds, Free-for-All isn’t having a return in the final week. How is this fair? I couldn’t even play a match for ONE WHOLE WEEK, and I will miss out on the rewards for something I had no control of?

I spoke to EvangM, and he can explain to you what I experienced. I couldn’t play at all, and now I can’t play Free-for-All because you’re extending Plunder’s period?

That being said, I would really really REALLY appreciate it if you guys added all game modes and maps for the final week, so that nobody misses out anything. If you can’t do that, can you just bring us back FFA? Please?

+ Shadow-Man_4 on July 8th, 2011 at 3:50 pm said:

Putting that small issue aside, the Beta is awesome! There are a *few* major issues like melee overhaul and the party system, etc. But other than that, the game itself is fantastic. My brother used to hate Uncharted 2, but now, with Uncharted 3′s MP, we can’t stop playing Split Screen, it’s so fun and addicting.

Actually, what made my Bro play at first and give it a try, was Split Screen, so thank you for this huge addition. :) Keep up the great work, and thanks again for such a fantastic game.

+ Claire_Farron_ on July 8th, 2011 at 3:51 pm said:

YAY! I can’t wait to play co-op adventure. ^_^

hi can someone tell me will the beta tester avatar be on the playstation store or on the beta


36

+ deathitself_1109 on July 8th, 2011 at 3:56 pm said:

The beta is okay, but gets a little repetitive after a while. Hope they fix the walk through wall glitches. I mean it is kind of helpful from exiting a room, but it bothers me when you get stuck.

1 million??? Wow good sales forecast!

Impressive stats, really looking forward to the new map, the more i play the beta the more i like, can’t wait to see what the final game will offer.

+ BigThaiNitty on July 8th, 2011 at 4:13 pm said:

I’m loving the multiplayer (usually not into multiplayer), it’s super fun. Have some connection issues as of late but overall pretty freakin great! Thanks naughty dog, already pre-ordered collectors edition and PSvita uncharted!

Please do not release a half done glitchy game.

Arne, PLEASE, tell us how we’re supposed to track the requirements of the Rewards!

+ digitalman123 on July 8th, 2011 at 4:23 pm said:

Yea-yuh! Beta ends on my b-day! Great so far!
What’s the requirements for the avatar again?


43

+ Heisem on July 8th, 2011 at 4:24 pm said:

i’m confused, will i be able to keep my stats after the game releases with the FULL uncharted MP from subway and it will continue working after that without buying the full game?


44

+ Mijeme on July 8th, 2011 at 4:26 pm said:

so that means you gave out a million free codes-_____-


45

+ oo7PorscheMGS on July 8th, 2011 at 4:26 pm said:

#37… since when does Naughty dog release a “half done glitchy game” ?? ALL their games have been awesome. I guess you’ve already forgotten that Uncharted 2 won TONS of GAME OF THE YEAR awards……… i guess so. You’ll be reminded though, when Uncharted 3 does it again ;)


46

+ LilWayneSuckz on July 8th, 2011 at 4:27 pm said:

So in other words, the amount of people playing a specific game online,Uncharted 3 Beta >>> Call of Duty Black Ops (on PS3), thats amazing


47

+ DZORMAGEN on July 8th, 2011 at 4:35 pm said:

Will the FULL UNCHARTED 3 Multi-player (from Subway) have trophies that carry over to the full game? How will this work? Also how do I know if I maintained the rewards that will be given? .I have played a lot of matches and I would love to take advantage of all the perks and rewards you guys are giving away!

+ Ibn_Elmeedan on July 8th, 2011 at 4:49 pm said:
