Here's When Uncharted 4's Multiplayer Beta Will Begin

New trailer for The Nathan Drake Collection reveals start date.

16 Comments

The multiplayer beta for Naughty Dog's Uncharted 4 will launch on December 4, Sony has revealed.

The announcement was made on the tail end of the latest trailer for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. The beta will begin on December 4 and last for ten days, ending on December 13.

Access to the beta is included with pre-orders of The Nathan Drake Collection, which releases October 9.

The game compiles all three acclaimed PlayStation 3 titles on one disc for PlayStation 4 owners. All three games in the trilogy render at 1080p60, and new features such as with a new photo mode, as well as additional trophy support have been added.

In March 2015, Sony delayed the released date for Uncharted 4 to spring 2016. Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, the two directors heading up the project at Naughty Dog, said the postponement was necessary to ensure the PlayStation 4 game matches the high expectations from fans.

"Since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, more of the game and story have come together, and it's become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned," the said.

"After spending so many years with Nathan Drake, he means a lot to the team, and telling the climactic chapter of his adventures is a task we don't take lightly--this game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for.

"So we've made the difficult choice of pushing the game's release date. Giving us a few extra months will make certain that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End not only meets the team's high standards but the high standards that gamers have come to expect from a Naughty Dog title."

I really wish Naughty dog did the right thing aND. Charge $40 bucks for these old games. That and the fact they took away the online is why I just can't buy this. How you take something away then charge full price. That's not ok for me!

@kentray1985: We're talking about 3 of the best PlayStation games ever--remastered--for the price of one, here. "the right thing", lol... Is 1985 your actual birth date? You seem like an entitled kid.

@Blumper: You seem like a salty playstation fan boy. These are old remastered games for 60 bucks minus no online. You can get all 3 of these games for under $20 so you can't even damage control this. They are given you half of two games so the value should go down, not up lol

@kentray1985: I like the series and want to play these remasters, but I agree full price is way too much.

I'm glad the Collection is getting the unlockables in all of the games this time, even 3.

I'll just buy Uncharted 4 and not the Drake Collection just to play the Beta.

All buyers of the collection get beta access, not just pre-orders.

@ban86: Sort of like how they tried to con Black Ops III people into pre-ordering to get to the beta. I bought Wolfenstein: The New Order expecting a beta code for Doom and that will likely be open as well.

@bobafetthatesu: Am here still waiting for the Doom Beta, why release a game with a beta code that can't be used until two years later?

@bobafetthatesu: Honestly we better get early access for that Doom beta or something, or I'll be royally ticked off.....

I traded in my PS3 and games to get the PS4 shortly after launch, so I'm looking forward to playing the Uncharted series again. Be good to dust off my PS4 and actual start playing it again!
