The Uncharted 4: A Thief's End multiplayer beta is coming sooner than expected. Sony announced today that the beta will begin tomorrow, December 3. Previously, it was expected to begin on December 4.

The news comes from PlayStation Europe's official Twitter account, which also specifies that the beta will be available starting at 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST. The beta is scheduled to end on December 13, though it's unclear if that's still the case given that the start-date has been brought forward.

The Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta client is around 7 GB. To access the beta, you'll need to have purchased Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. As of yet, Sony has not announced any other ways to get in.

According to DualShockers, the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta comes with two maps and one mode. The beta represents just a slice of what will be offered in the full game. In addition, your progress in the beta will not carry forward.

Uncharted 4 launches in March 2016 exclusively for PS4. We may learn more about it soon, possibly during The Game Awards on Thursday or PlayStation Experience this coming weekend.

So, if the wait is coming to an end, what the WaitStation4 owners are supposed to do from now on? Is the "Greatness Awaits" slogan going to be replaced by something else?

@elleclouds: Sony enthusiasts just swallow anything ND touches without complaining. It's like Midas touch. If EA/Ubi/etc milk a franchise, they're vicious. If ND do so, it's ok.

Gears of War ultimate edition multilplayer totally stomps out Uncharted 4's multilplayer

And yes both games are story driven action games they are in the same category

@ggaming72: No they are not. One is a 3rd person cover shooter. Uncharted is more story driven action game. Gears is a run and gun shooter. Apples to oranges. But nice try.

i bought a ps3 for uncharted 2 and the multiplayer is one of my favourites, good fun times. uncharted 4 multiplayer at 60fps must be realy fun but i am not buying a console with a online multiplayer paywall.

This looks awesome and I didn't previously state that I would chime in on it, but I changed my mind. I picked up The Collection because of Uncharted 2&3. I just want the story with a great conclusion to the series. Afterwards, TLOU2 please...then collect my money :D

@cboye18: I would rather get a taste of what the game looks like and how it plays by doing the multiplayer rather than getting spoiled by some random scene in a demo.

@daxterfox: There are games made for multiplayer: COD, Battlefield, Halo, Gears of War etc. Have you ever tried Uncharted multiplayer? I loved the games (finished the campaigns of UC2/3 on all difficulties), but the multiplayer always felt tacked on and completely unnecessary (like Tomb Raider). I'm getting pretty tired myself of developers wasting time on redundant modes.

@dancegdance: Sounds like an excellent idea for an online multiplayer shooter. Should put Plants vs Zombies to shame.

Seriously though, anytime I've ever liked something or said something positive I've been called a fanboy troll anyways so what fucking difference does it make. I'm a Sony Pony and an Xbot but actually game on PC most so whomever doesn't like what they see online will just just randomly label however the hell they want.

Is it just me, or does this look very cartoony compared to the other games?

@MrFreehuggs: Probably due to the vibrant colors yes. But texture and object-wise, you won't find anything more realistic...

@davillain-: It's been a few years since I've played Uncharted. I just remember it looking more like TLOU for some reason

I almost went and buy Drake's Collection for the Beta but however, I don't want to be spoiled any surprises and when I'll go pick up Uncharted 4 in March 18th 2016, I want to go in fresh and expect the unexpected.
