Sadly, the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta came to an end earlier today, racking up over 1.53 MILLION unique players participating! This makes UNCHARTED 3 the LARGEST online beta to appear on the PS3. I cannot describe how awesome everyone in the Naughty Dog studio feels about hitting this milestone – we couldn’t have done it without you, our fans and community!

Below, we’ve collected some jaw-dropping stats from the Multiplayer Beta. You guys were busy!

-Total unique Beta players: 1.53 million people

-Total kills: 1.9 billion

-Total Cash collected: 1.4 TRILLION dollars (that’s greater than the gross domestic product of Spain, the eleventh highest GDP in the world!)

-Total shots fired: 48 billion

-Total matches completed: 22 million

-Total time played: More than 362 years worth of matches

We’re keeping the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta feedback forums on open over the weekend so you can post your closing thoughts. We’ll close the forums on Monday, reopen the normal Multiplayer discussion forum, and spend the next weeks poring over all your feedback to see what else we should look into. We’ve already made changes, fixes and tweaks during the Beta and before we put the finishing touches on UNCHARTED 3, we will make more tweaks entirely based on your collective feedback. Our multiplayer game design team thanks you!

If you still need your UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer fix and you’re headed to San Diego Comic-Con next week, you’re in luck! We are bringing a limited selection of the gametypes featured in the Beta to the PlayStation Booth located in the Exhibit Hall for all FIVE days! We’ve got an UNCHARTED 3 panel on Friday and a bunch of announcements to boot – we’ll have a proper blowout on all the news here on the PlayStation.Blog early next week.

If you’re not headed to San Diego Comic-Con, you’ll be able to scratch that multiplayer itch again in just a few months! In October, you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to jump into the FULL UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer experience by visiting your participating SUBWAY restaurant before the Blu-ray copies hit retail on November 1st. Check back on the PlayStation.Blog for more details as we get closer to October – if you want to get a jump start with your Multiplayer career, you won’t want to miss this!

Of course, don’t forget to pre-order if you haven’t already.

One last note about the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta Rewards – if you’re looking forward to getting your hard-earned rewards from hitting any or all of the requirements, PLEASE be sure to update your Account Settings to ALLOW “communications from PlayStation.” There’s a handy link on the Account Settings page on to do this. Otherwise our pals at the PlayStation Network offices won’t be able to e-mail you and you won’t get your rewards!

You don’t want that to happen, do you?

I look forward to taking a few potshots at each and every one of you within the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer this October, if not sooner!

Thanks for the reply to my previous post. Sorry it was all negative but that’s what betas are all about, right? better fix now than be sorry later. Anyway, I had a lot of fun with the beta, and I may go as far as say it’s already shaping up to be ten times better than Uncharted 2!

My stats are all blank on the site, I know many have this problem, but also I am getting an error trying to access any of your forums.

Congrats ND, I had fun with the beta, as a long time UC2 player (still play it from time to time) I gotta say I had fun with this one as well. I posted my thoughts on the forums already. Can’t wait for the full game, but I hope you guys aren’t focusing more on the MP than the single player, I don’t want the SP to be nerfed and not be as good as it could have been because you guys were too focused on the MP. The SP is what im looking forward to the most and I think I speak for most uncharted fans when I say that.

Biggest beta on PlayStation 3 would have to be PlayStation Home. It’s been in Beta since it released and still is. :P

Look Uncharted, I’m really happy for you. Imma let you finish. But Journey is the multiplayer beta of all time.

Arne, the solution to the error on the forum or site is clearing cache. I have done it few times and it works. No need to switch browser, this error also happens on firefox. So its not just the IE.

i have a question Arne Meyer is there any chance of making add-on’s for uncharted 3 beta cause am forward of buying uncharted 3 beta add-on’s like new maps or skins and stuff… Thanks for the uncharted3 update arne

Good Job On the Beta I Did Love Playing it Too Bad R3 Beta Is Only Going To Be In EU for plus members and for people who bought the copy of socom 4 with the beta code in it I’m sure it’s numbers would have been massive as well

July 15th, 5:18 pm

ARNE, could you tell me what happens with the Cinema files of this Beta?
There are some I (and many others) really want to keep.

stakin said:

July 15th, 5:24 pm

Arne, I have one question. Is there any way we kill check other stats like our kill/death ratio like in Uncharted 2. By the way…I have never had so much fun shooting people in the face! Keep the good work!

So when are we going to recieve the email for our prizes?


July 15th, 5:27 pm

Looking forward to playing the full version. I hope the on-line gets tweaked cause it was unbalanced in my opinion, but I still loved the Co-Op stuff. I am looking forward to all my Beta rewards, cause I did reach all the goals I was suppose to.

I want that a game that is a PS3 exclusive and that is not Gran Turismo to sell more than 6M units to costumers. I was hoping for GOW3 to be the first title :(. Hopefully Uncharted 3 will.

@62 Why do you care if a game reaches 6 million sold?

MR_2FACE said:

July 15th, 5:36 pm

Hello people. I have a entire diffrent question. For people who have had their ps3′s repaired by sony,how long did it take to get it back after they fixed it? I sent mine out 2days ago and Im basically dying over here without it,I mean when the network went down that was bad but being completely without it is terrible.The sony rep. said the ps3 service center is in Lerado,TX & im in Houston,TX so it should’nt take that long because the problem with my slim is the power supply( on a system I bought this year in FEB.) please respond!

digitalman123 said:

July 15th, 5:38 pm

Please don’t weave the treasure sets into the customization like you did. That really annoyed me. All I wanted was the Desert Scarf for my villain, but I have to complete some random set to get it. I mean, what are the chances I’ll complete the Lost Wrathful Deity set without hundreds of dedication time? Come on! I absolutely hated the treasure set system. Hated its filthy guts.
Overall, not a bad beta. 9/10. Wasn’t as addicting as U2’s though.

I read about it on IGN, good job Sony and Naughty Dog for this beta!!!

Seahawk313 said:

I really enjoyed the beta, and will definately be stopping by Subway this October:) Any plans of opening up that vault of multiplayer footage that we all uploaded from the game, obviously you guys have access to it, hence the making of those awesome kills of the week videos….. just saying, it would really be nice to have something like a private uncharted youtube, where we can view all uplaoded gameplay footage.

On another note… I found a little problem with an advertisement on the playstation store, maybe this should be passed on to Grace, or Jeff. The advertisements for the summer sales on the summer sales page, may be a little mixed up. The advertisement for the game Swarm, states that the game is available to playstation plus subscribers for $4.89.. link to photo
While it states on the checkout page that the game actually costs $
Also while I’m at it, Thank You, whoever is responsible. For marking down burnout paradise to $7.99, and the dlc also, it really made my week…easy plat :)

you know what would make naughty dog even better is if they come out with a jak and daxter hd collection at the same time as this game

PSMIMO said:

July 15th, 6:00 pm

First of all I loved the beta so much i can’t even aim as good as i used to in uncharted 2 , anyway what really annoyed me was that the sniper was scoped in right away when we aim , just make it like the uncharted 2 aiming system you are a little zoomed in then u scope , so that i can use it more efficiently .
I also had a question : In the very first gameplay that was shown the chateau level burning up with drake and sully , drake did this stealth melee jump from a high place on one of the A.I it was so great that i couldn’t imagine what it would be like in the multiplayer but i was disappointed to learn that it wasn’t implemented into the multiplayer NAUGHTY DOG can you PLEASE INCLUDE THIS MOVE IN THE MULTIPLAYER IT WOULD BE THE BEST THING EVVVVVVEEEEERRRRRRRRR

Oops I picked the wrong day to start playing. I like how multiplayer is now the MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER when it comes to games.

Ehhhh, Riiiiiiight….biggest beta ever for ps3? Who cares? Want a award? That doesnt mean anything. I didn’t like the multiplayer…Not one bit at all.

vza004 said:

July 15th, 6:09 pm

I didn’t like the beta because… I LOVE IT!! I can’t wait for this game.

daxter1100 said:

July 15th, 6:10 pm

Arne Meyer do you know is we are going to get a jak and daxter hd collection fpr the ps3 any time soon

Hazelhurst said:

July 15th, 6:10 pm

Already pre-ordered the collector’s edition. It’s going to be swell.

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

July 15th, 6:16 pm

the beta was AMAZING…the only thing that was bothering me about the game was how the enemies on the team who has the treasure side…in plunder…it was alittle frustrating to get killed a few steps away from scoring your treasure from the same fool you just bust a cap in at the middle of the map! ..luckly i had a good team that had my back since Uncharted 2…hence to say we are HUGE FANS.But yeah that was my only issue in the game..ooh and alil PARTY issues int he beginning but it was fixed on the second update..i guess it was my connection or watever. So yeah keep up the good work ND’s…i got my Collectors Edition pre ordered..and made space on my PS3 Collectors Edition Exclusive game shelf …yeah…its going to look great right next to my Infamous 2 Hero Edition statue :p

I love the new multiplayer, though it took awhile to adapt to the new changes. The beta hints that the single player should be awesome. ND writes some of the best scripts and dialog of any gaming company, rivaling most of the crap Hollywood spins out claiming to be entertaining movies. Hope ND has their hands in the movie when it eventually comes out. If done right it should be new Indiana Jones for the new generation. (Suggestion: Joe Flanigan {Stargate: Atlantis} – for Drake.

QUESTION: I had numerous crashes/shut downs, especially with the co-op adventure, was that because of the graphics demands on the processor, was it causing the system to overheat or overwork the processor, will this be a concern with the final game? I have a original fat PS3, does that have anything to do with it?

daxter1100 said:

Arne Meyer when are we going to get a jak and daxter hd collection for the ps3 any time soon

Best beta so far… I just wish it could’ve lasted longer. Now we have to wait 3 months and 3 weeks :(

Leo020 said:

July 15th, 6:39 pm

Confused about that subway thing.

But I guess for now we wait.

footballrule said:

July 15th, 6:55 pm

Glad I was a part of it, though I figure any Beta can have those numbers if put on PS Store for everyone to download. Only other game that did this was Killzone 3.

Spacerac said:

July 15th, 6:55 pm

No! Every time I tried I could never find a match :(

Da_Quanijuana said:

am I finding myself to be the only person who didn’t enjoy the beta?

LaTiNo4eVuR said:

hey arne um i found a glitch where u jump through a wall and great game by the way

daxter1100 said:

July 15th, 7:09 pm

Da_Quanijuana your not the only one that hated it i want a jak and daxter hd collection for ps3 more than another uncharted game

that-acmilan-guy said:

July 15th, 7:12 pm

I’m glad everyone of us who played the beta, played or roles in shaping up the final game. Hope there is a personal message at the credits saying something like ‘Thank you that-acmilan-guy for shaping the final game!’

They didn’t lie about the free avatar, they will be releasing information about it when they announce it.

Unlike Killzone 2 -> 3, Uncharted 2 -> 3 multiplayer was a big surprise. I couldn’t play as much as I wanted because of work and other grown up responsibilities, but I enjoyed it greatly.

You know what would be awesome, one or two maps and modes where you play with/against PSV players on Uncharted Golden Abyss.

This beta was really nice, barely got a chance to play but managed to play about more than 10 minutes, I’m not sure if im going to buy it but who knows, after I get Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and Assasins Creed 1 and 2, brotherhood, and assasins creed revelations, I might buy Uncharted 3, I enjoyed it though I love Sony, I’m REALLY looking forward to the Restistance 3 BETA omg that will be totally AWESOME! YEAA SONY ROCKS!

Thanks for the beta, guys!!!!! I wanted to start saying that you and Team Ico are the Sony studios that i most respect and love, and i’ll buy anything from you guys. About the beta, it was a blast, and might i add, it was the best multiplayer beta i ever touched. Sure, there were some annoying and frustating glitches, wich i’ll let you know about them when i give you my complete feedback in your forums ;), but even if it had only 3 maps, it felt like the the complete package :P.
