posted up a new video today detailing some new Uncharted 3 Multiplayer PS3 Beta week 2 content.
To quote: 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:
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
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
• Removed Yemen from map rotation in Free For All. Yemen will return during its regularly scheduled week.
• Temporarily removed Cursed from Power Play rotation.
• 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.
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!
