Uncharted 3 is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year. In
fact, it is almost undoubtedly the most anticipated PS3 game of the
year. And at long last, Naughty Dog’s Multiplayer Beta has been
released to all PS Plus subscribers and Infamous 2 purchasers. In other
words, pretty much everyone on PS3 can access this thanks to the
Welcome Back Package Sony released earlier this month. So, let’s see if
this beta is enough to hold us over until the release of the full game
November 1st.
After starting up the Uncharted 3 beta, the first thing you will
notice is the TV at the bottom right of your screen. It shows trailers
and interviews for Uncharted 3. A very cool feature I don’t recall ever
seeing in a beta before. You can full screen and unmute the video with
a couple button presses and pass the time while waiting for friends to
join your game.

You will also notice the customization settings. It allows you to
set up classes with weapons, boosters, and kickbacks. You can also
select your preferred heroes and villains and change the color of their
uniforms. This is nice in that it allows matches with 6 different
Drake’s so they can all be different from each other. You can buy more
weapons, boosters, and kickbacks as well buy earning money in the
multiplayer and co op game modes, just like in Uncharted 2.

You will also be able to create your own emblem just like in Call of
Duty: Black Ops. This gives you a unique callsign, and gives your
fallen foes something pretty to look at as they wait to respawn. As of
right now, the emblem-creating system is far from perfect, as you are
not able to move around anything, only rotate and rescale. This is
something I definitely see changing in the full game, but for now it is a
bit of a letdown in the beta.

Now, let’s move on to what matters. The multiplayer and co op game
modes will be changing during the course of the beta. Right now, there
is only one co op mode and 4 multiplayer modes. The current co op mode
-- arena -- pits you and 2 friends against enemy AIs while you try to
obtain treasures and bring them back, kill enemies from a certain area,
and other mini modes.

The current multiplayer modes are Team Deathmatch, Free for All,
Three Team Deathmatch, and Hardcore. Team Deathmatch is, of course, you
working in a team to beat the other team. Get kills and don’t die.
Easy enough, right? Free for all is the same, but with no team of
course. Then, Three Team Deathmatch is Team Deathmatch but with 3 small
teams instead of 2 medium sized teams. Lastly, Hardcore mode is Team
Deathmatch but without boosters or kickbacks, just you and your skills.

The beta had a rough start, and was freezing gamers PS3s as well as
preventing them from getting back in the multiplayer afterwards.
However, Naughty Dog did an excellent job in fixing the beta quickly for
all of us eager Uncharted fans. I have had no problems with the beta
since that fix and am very happy with it. For the 5 or 6 of you PS3
gamers that don’t have PS Plus or an Infamous 2 code, you are really
missing out. But do not fear, you will be in on the action soon! I
recommend checking it out ASAP and pre-ordering
Uncharted 3 from Amazon
immediately if you have yet to do so.
