UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta Hits 1 Million+ Players, Co-op Adventure and New Map Hit 7/10

Arne Meyer's Avatar Posted by Director of Communications, Naughty Dog


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.

Please bring back Free For All mode. I have to play it 10 times to get rewards. ND deleted Free For All too early.

I agree with the rest of the community, you guys outdid yourselves yet again. I love the game, we love the game it is great. Keep up good work, and keep improving it best on the feedback. I am looking forward to new updates and new map, as well as co-op adventure, that is going to be so much fun.

I played for the first time today and the game froze on me.

I’m really enjoying the beta. There are still some control issues, and the melee isn’t perfect yet, but I the beta has still guaranteed that I’ll pre-order UC3

I hope you guys at Naughty Dog keep some of the crazy kickbacks and powerplays, like Creepy Crawlers and Cursed, even if people complain about them.

Just make sure that these things don’t turn up in every match, or even every dozen matches…. that way, you’ll have a real “oh my god, oh my god” moment when you see it… rather than just being frustrated by these kickbacks and powerplays contrantly upsetting matches

I’m feeling you. Here in Hong Kong (which is where PlayStation Asia SCEH is based) we have no Qriocity services, or video/music/comics stores.

I’ve spent a lot of money on PSN, and I’m willing to pay more, but it seems Sony don’t want to take my money

If it weren’t for Infamous 2, I wouldn’t think I would give this a go. There are glitches galore. However, I still play this whenever I get the time. Sniping ftw!

This game is great! As long as you don’t set it to require an “Online Pass” it’ll be a day 1 purchase. If it comes with or requires an online pass then I’ll be borrowing the game from my friends after they complete it and just play through single player.

I do not support greedy companies.

The beta sucks the game play is awsom but after i plY one game it frezes my system and iv downloaded both the updates

DaveedT13 said:

July 9th, 8:08 am

People, IMPORTANT: It’s complte 10 competitives games TOTAL, not 10 for each competitives modes. : ) Everyone that played the beta up to level 15 at least will recevive all the beta rewards don’t worries! : )

Hey ARNE: Will the SUBWAY thing be available in CANADA? It must be, please! lol

…oh and thanks ND for the awesome beta, can’t wait to try the Yemen Map and the Coop Adventure mode!

DaveedT13 said:

July 9th, 8:13 am

@Xamindar :
I don’t get it, if you want to buy it on day one, why do the online pass thing bothers you? It’s FREE (INCLUDED) if you buy the game new so…cost you nothing more… …and it’s helps devs invest more cash, time and efforts in games since they loose less because of piracy and used games market… Also, the game will probably requires an online pass because Sony announces it some days a ago and ND if an exclusive dev for Sony.

You’ll punish ND even if maye it’s Sony that make it mandatory to use the new online pass system?

Hopefully someone is reading these comments.

I’ve been playing the heck out of the beta (Nearly rank 40) I’ve leveled up all the boosters to level 3 and only need a half dozen treasures to complete all the sets.
But I can’t sign in on the Naughty Dog website to participate in the online community! Anyone else having this problem?

@ Arne Meyer, Where those 1 million players actually online playing that game, or was it just 1 million people that played the game?


July 9th, 10:46 am

I cant deal with the controls, they feel off and not nearly as responsive as U2 was by any means. Def going to give this a rent for the story though.

rdmof6 said:

July 9th, 11:04 am

Nice, i havent played the beta in days but im looking forward to a single player beta!


July 9th, 12:44 pm

@79 Hopefully they can fix everything. I wish they would have left the controls alone and the player movement speed. I put in another session before deleting it. was truly disappointed.

After 4 updates the game still doesn’t work. I mean it won’t even start. Hangs on the connecting screen. It works on my old PS3 though for some reason. Disappointing, I wanted to play it.

Hey Naughty Dog, loving the level design in both of these levels. I think a little more time can be spent on the plane chase in the beginning of air strip but other than that I’m really liking the levels.

Going to try new level/mode tonight.

Can you guys please, please add a mode where you can play everything without load outs? I really miss that from U2. Felt like it leveled the playing field, and I liked having to search for weapons. I’m still getting adjusted to the heavier feel but overall, really like all the modes and love the direction the game is going towards. Also really like the little perks and things you have to us like the buddy system. Being able to spawn on a buddy and do the high five thing is awesome.

I’m really liking the beta its a lot of fun. I picked up the Resistance Dual Pack the other day and I was wonder. Do you think you could make a dual pack for Uncharted 1 and 2? It just makes since to me.

This game is so AMAZING!!!!!! I was so excited when I first got the beta (even though it was laggy ) this I got to say is soooooo much better than cod (or at least black ops) and is really fun!!! Good job ND and SONY keep up the good work! I can’t wait to get this game!!!!

The beta sucks. I only have a ps3. Im not a fanboy like all others. Im telling the truth. It sucks.You guys need to just repeat the uc2 multiplayer exactly because these cutscenes and these tips and everything on the screen suck.The spriniting sucks.Im speaking for every guy on youtube. Im speaking for everyone. The Uc2 multiplayer was flawless. Naughty Dog the community thats not fanboys are telling the truth. Were the real gamers. Look at how Kz3 turned out. Guerrila Games did not listen to anybody and kz3 turned out unsuccsessful. Head the advice. Naughty Dog you need to repeat the FLAWLESS Uc2 multiplayer. We dont want everything popping up on screen. We dont want cutscenes. We dont want clunky controls.We dont want slowness.This is not Gears of War. Take the advice from the community

Absolutely amazing! 3D top notch with stunning graphics. Team DM where fighting on moving plane was fresh & new and favorite part, want more of that please!

Post #50 is correct. I just started playing on the 5th and I LOVE THIS GAME. The multiplayer, which was lacking in Uncharted 2, is SO MUCH BETTER. So much improvement. Weapon upgrades, loadouts. It’s all there. I cannot wait for 11.1.11!!!

Graffitizer said:

July 10th, 11:49 pm

Uncharted 3, Battlefield, Saints Row 3! But, I’m hoping you guys have fixed the stupid freezing glitch. I’ve finished level 4 about 20 times. I couldn’t even play the game for a week or so, so now it’s impossible for me to be eligible for beta to retail rewards (as mentioned above). I mean, can you please open everything back up so the people like me could reach the beta to retail requirements? It would really help. You guys at ND and Playstation are doing an amazing job, and this wasn’t at all your fault, but it needs to be fixed.

What are you talking about?
Killzone3 was fantastic. Kz2 multiplayer was complete trash.
And as far as the “fanboys”? If all you own is a PS3 that makes you MORE of a fanboy.

As far as the sprinting goes.. yea.. that’s a bit on the shaky side, but other than that it’s still fun. The co-op is definitely a nice addition and I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of it.
