Uncharted 3 Beta Open for All

Naughty Dog has announced that the Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta is now available for all players. The download is listed in the PlayStation Store and can be downloaded to play until July 14.

Until July 9, available gametypes will be Team Deathmatch, Free for All, Team Objective, Hardcore and Co-Op Hunter on the Airstrip and Chateau maps. Between July 10 and the beta's end on July 14, you'll be able to play Team Deathmatch, Plunder, Three Team Deathmatch, Hardcore, Co-Op Adventure and Co-Op Arena on the Airstrip and Yemen maps.

The Uncharted beta was plagued with issues on its first day back on June 28, but all seems to be running smoothly now. Naughty Dog's Robert Cogburn said that the company couldn't have anticipated the problems, reports Beefjack.

"One of the hardest things in making any multiplayer game is stressing the system," he said. "Once the beta exceeded what we tested previously, a number of problems occurred we could not have anticipated. The main issue was how we were handling certain network traffic when a lot of people were online. The problem was found quickly and, given the talent of the studio here at Naughty Dog and throughout the rest of SCEA, we were able to figure out a solution and get patch 1.01 up really quick."

According to Cogburn, over 600,000 people have played the beta so far -- a number only expected to rise now the game is completely open to the public.
