Feeling a little bored with the collection of multiplayer games just lying around the house? Are you waiting in desperation to see what Nathan and Sully have gotten themselves into in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception? Perhaps that month when the PlayStation Network was down may finally prove to be of some use, as the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is heading to the PSN June 28th, and almost everyone should have a ticket in.
If you’re a PlayStation Plus member (and you are — it’s part of the PSN “Welcome Back” package) or purchased inFamous 2, you will have a two-week chance to see what new options the developers at Naughty Dog have been devising for Uncharted 3’s multiplayer experience. The beta will include two new maps, Airport and Cheateau, a new weapon and character customization system, and will let players check out the updated Booster system. Fans of the series should have more to do than they can handle.
Game Rant had a chance to go hands-on with Uncharted 3’s multiplayer during E3. While the character customization system and level designs (both beautifully crafted for a more streamlined experience) were big eye-catchers, the addition of Free For All and Three-Team Deathmatch (2v2v2) variants will certainly turn heads, as well.
If you missed any of the action, you can check out the Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta trailer below to see what players are in for.
There may be some PS3 owners who haven’t yet experienced Nathan Drake and his adventurous exploits thus far. Fear not, because July 22nd you’ll be able to pick up the Uncharted Collection, containing both Uncharted and Uncharted 2, for $39.99. On top of the games, the Uncharted Collection will include a bonus dynamic theme and avatar set, letting fans gear up for the release of Uncharted 3 with style.
So sharpen those jumping and dodging skills, decide how you’d like your character to look, and get ready for next week when Drake and company invade PSN.
