Uncharted 2: Come Play with the Naughty Dogs!

Justin Richmond's Avatar Posted by

Multiplayer Designer, Naughty Dog

The results are in from E3, and it seems Nathan Drake has already claimed his treasure; Uncharted 2: Among Thieves took home several “Best of E3” awards, including nods from 1UP, G4, Platform Nation, Go! Gaming Giant, Game Focus, and GamePro. And if you’re a participant in the exclusive UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta, you’re already getting a taste of what is shaping up to be Naughty Dog‘s most ambitious video game to date.

The Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta is about to enter its second week, and we’re already making some tweaks to improve your experience. We are preparing a patch for release in the next few days. Properly applying this patch requires some careful attention on your end: You must watch the screen closely while booting into the beta. As soon as you see the patch message come up in the XMB overlay, you should hit X to accept as quickly as possible.

Uncharted 2 Beta

If you miss the window your PS3 will reset but NOT patch. Simply launch the game and you can try again.

We’ll post a notice on the UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Beta Forum letting you know when the patch goes live, and we’ll also Tweet it out as well on the PlayStation and Naughty Dog Twitter accounts.

Here’s what this beta patch will address:


  • Grenade explosions now apply damage properly


  • Players should no longer get hung up in matchmaking for long periods of time

Bug Fixes

  • Ranks should no longer reset randomly
  • Quitting the game will no longer reset the PS3
  • Player collision – players should no longer get hung up on each other when moving through the environment
  • Player will now be killed if stuck in falling animation for too long
  • In Plunder mode, treasures will no longer disappear during matches


We are also pleased to announce that we will hold four “Play with the Developer” events in the UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Beta over the next two weeks, starting today! During these time slots, a lot of us at Naughty Dog will be online playing the game with all of you! You can tell the Dogs apart from other players because they’ll be playing with different models – a pirate for the villains and Drake with a Naughty Dog t-shirt for the heroes.

The dates and times are below:

Tuesday, June 9 – 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Thursday, June 11 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Tuesday, June 16 – 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Thursday, June 18 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)

Join us for some fun!

Naughty Dog! Please answer to this … It would be possible to put new skins for the characters online as LBP makes with huge profits from it?
In addition to new maps and modes of play .. could we play as Jak while Daxter is on his shoulder … Sully could have a on 1 on 1 with Kratos, Ratchet could be using a gun made for himself?
You could extend this idea to Lara Croft, a pilot of MotorStorm .. the SACKBOY! Depended on your imagination .. ND put on the Sony’s Blog a weekly vote for new skins…

Great beta, wish the co op was longer and that there were more game modes (non respawn) in the beta, but otherwise great game!

June 9th, 7:31 pm

this is awesome cause I was getting a little annoyed with the PS3 reseting. Also the beta is awesome. You guys did a awesome job with multiplayer which surprised me. I love playing uncharted off line in you last game but under estimated you guys with an online attempt but man oh man you proved me wrong.

I played with 2 members of the ND team last week at different times (they have the red paw by thier name). And ya – they BOTH team killed me a few times EACH. Dare I give it another shot? LOL. But ya… teamkillers!!!

king-fumez said:

June 10th, 4:22 am

wow good job can’t wait for the release of the game


June 10th, 4:56 am

Like the update, however, dont like the fact that I submitted the correct answer for the schwag bag contest within the first 2 min. and didnt win. And people who submitted over an hour into the contest won.

@Wllbien and @hokieguy….I too collected the clues all week and entered in the first 5 min after the final clue was posted, yet didn’t “win.”

NaughtyDogs, will you be posting the complete list of winners names? There must be a way to confirm that yes, 300 other people entered their answer in the 4 min before me, or that there was a problem with the survey used to collecting answers.

Any chance someone has an extra Beta key code? It’s for my nephews.

Great Beta, played it last night again will try to play again tonight with the ND team.

Looking forward to the patch also.


June 10th, 9:14 am

Can I choose not to install the patch? I generally suck at multiplayer and worked really hard to get to Level 10! :D

icecold99 said:

June 10th, 10:02 am

how do u get the uncharted 2 beta? sum1 help plz! thank u

sNsKid said:

June 10th, 12:40 pm

I submitted within the first 4 mins and got no code.

Yet they have plenty of code to give to Geoff Keighley.

Why even bother with a rigged contest?

JinZX1 said:

June 10th, 12:57 pm

can’t wait to play with you guys tomorrow….wait, how do i play with you guys? will it just be in random games?

Miles514 said:

June 10th, 8:18 pm

Oh no… Naughty dog experts. This’ll be fun! Last problem though. I would like 5 seconds of invincibility when u respawn. Spawn killing gets annoying.

June 11th, 9:57 am

I’m not big on shooter games(personal pref), but I’m really diggin this one! Won my beta from onine treasure hunt- got my email Tuesday, been playin ever since. Will definitely be day 1 purchase for me as well. Great job ND! Can you send me another patch- I missed my window of opportunity last night. Thought I installed correctly, but still boots me and resets. AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!

Yeh i played with one of the Devs on co-op and they sucked lol. Other than that theres alot of glitches of images and being in a open sky world atmosphere. The game is very fun tho i played that co-op level way to many times and three days in a row and i still go back to it. I would like for you guys to let us play the boss or at least add another co-op level. Anyways i bought uncharted and I will be definately be buying uncharted 2.

they need to fix the hit detection. im tryin of puttin 90 bullets in someones head b4 they die

DominicanNinja said:

June 12th, 3:22 pm

the need a patch to fix plunder bcuz the treasure sometimes disappears on the map and we just fight until time runs out. i remember one time we had 2 treasures on the map it was funny lol.

madness420 said:

June 13th, 1:56 pm

anyone know if i can get a beta code without buying infamous hit me up on the psn

Nosajk said:

June 13th, 8:30 pm

That’s weird… I saw someone today at 3am LOL then i notice it was Naughty Dog guy with Drake’s white and black shirt, so thats cool will those characters will be unlocked in the final version?

KingOfThieves said:

June 17th, 4:49 pm

The ONLY thing I am hoping for with multiplayer is PLEASE Naughty Dog, do NOT make achieving trophies a competitive match. Unlike some gamers most of us do NOT have the time to sit there and play online for hours on end. Earning a trophy should be about personal skill not a competition.

Has anyone ever gotten there Uncharted 2 Beta Code from the Qore annual Subscription Offer Yet? I keep hearing how great the game is but Qore has never sent out my code? I think there has been some false advertising..
