Uncharted 2: Come Play with the Naughty Dogs!

138 0

The results are in from E3, and it seems Nathan Drake has already claimed his treasure; Uncharted 2: Among Thieves took home several “Best of E3” awards, including nods from 1UP, G4, Platform Nation, Go! Gaming Giant, Game Focus, and GamePro. And if you’re a participant in the exclusive UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta, you’re already getting a taste of what is shaping up to be Naughty Dog‘s most ambitious video game to date.

The Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta is about to enter its second week, and we’re already making some tweaks to improve your experience. We are preparing a patch for release in the next few days. Properly applying this patch requires some careful attention on your end: You must watch the screen closely while booting into the beta. As soon as you see the patch message come up in the XMB overlay, you should hit X to accept as quickly as possible.

Uncharted 2 Beta

If you miss the window your PS3 will reset but NOT patch. Simply launch the game and you can try again.

We’ll post a notice on the PlayStation.com UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Beta Forum letting you know when the patch goes live, and we’ll also Tweet it out as well on the PlayStation and Naughty Dog Twitter accounts.

Here’s what this beta patch will address:

General

  • Grenade explosions now apply damage properly

Matchmaking

  • Players should no longer get hung up in matchmaking for long periods of time

Bug Fixes

  • Ranks should no longer reset randomly
  • Quitting the game will no longer reset the PS3
  • Player collision – players should no longer get hung up on each other when moving through the environment
  • Player will now be killed if stuck in falling animation for too long
  • In Plunder mode, treasures will no longer disappear during matches

Note: ALL RANKS WILL BE RESET WITH THE PATCH

We are also pleased to announce that we will hold four “Play with the Developer” events in the UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Beta over the next two weeks, starting today! During these time slots, a lot of us at Naughty Dog will be online playing the game with all of you! You can tell the Dogs apart from other players because they’ll be playing with different models – a pirate for the villains and Drake with a Naughty Dog t-shirt for the heroes.

The dates and times are below:

Tuesday, June 9 – 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Thursday, June 11 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Tuesday, June 16 – 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Thursday, June 18 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)

Join us for some fun!

  • Nice Job ND! Can’t wait to play the game!

  • Thanks for the heads up on how to do the patch.

  • The game is so much fun! This is a day one purchase for me!

  • Cool, but I don’t have the beta.

    Wish I did though.

  • glad you guys are supporting it so well cant wait for the actual game got it pre-ordered any chance of a collectors edition? great game once again

  • Can’t wait!
    NICE WORK!

  • I was nice and gave my beta code away. I want this epic game to be so fresh when I buy it. :D

  • Good post. Looks good.

    Quick question though, does the standard NDA apply to this beta? I’m assuming not since in none of the emails I received or any of the beta community leaders in the EU have said otherwise. Maybe some clarification?

  • cant wait to play it with the patch

  • Any word on the winners of the Uncharted 2 Online Hunt?

  • Nice. I can’t believe it! A patch for a beta. Well done, ND. Fantastic.

  • coolness!

  • Wow, I look forward to playing with the ND team! :D

  • The beta is super fun…..I am very impressed

  • Justin,
    Will the stats in the beta move on to the actual game or will they just be reset and you have to start fresh?

    (please tell me we will keep them.)

  • Awesome, how about also adding in improved hand to hand combat in true uncharted fasion?

    Beta is great, its just that hand to hand is important to what makes Uncharted so cool and right now its bad.

  • Naughty Dog give me a beta code plz!!

  • I’ll be on tonight. At least for the first hour. Then it’s Red Wings – Penguins.

  • When?

  • Is there any chance that when the full game releases in the fall, those who tested the beta will get an exclusive shirt for their competitive and co-op players? Like a simple red Naughty Dog paw on the back of the character’s shirt? I have a rough edit at what it could possibly look like on the PS forums if you have a chance to look. My account name over there is DARK_JAK_911 as well.

  • i hate this beta.

    It just reminds me how awesome the game is and that ill have to wait another 4/5 months to play full version.

    I have experienced few issues in the beta. I noticed yesterday that a player got stuck in the plunder mode map (the night time one)… in a pile of rubble/rocks. They couldnt shoot me, and i couldnt shoot her. but you could see her

  • I definitely have to attend this. I will never forget playing the Naughty Dogs during the Jak X beta in 2005. I’m quite curious to see if Neil Druckmann (who went as Dr. Uckmann on Jak X) and Richard Lemarchand still remember me from that beta. :p

  • Have the emails gone out to the winners of the Online Hunt?

  • Awesome, and could you work on headshot detection next? I hit someone in the head with all three rounds from an FAL burst and it didn’t give me the kill

  • Haven’t had a ton of chances to play yet but what I have played was incredibly fun.

    What’s the deal? You guys couldn’t come up with a better way to patch this?

  • The beta is fantastic guys great job!!! :D

  • Awesome, sounds great! so when do we find out about who won the uncharted 2 online hunt?

  • still waiting for a beta code!! sniff anyone can helo me out?
    pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee

    thaaaaaaanks

  • any word on when we’ll find out if we won the PS Blog Uncharted 2 Treasure Hunt word scramble?

  • Other than the resetting of the PS3, I’m really loving the beta, and I can’t wait for the full release of the game.

    After the awesomeness of the first game, UC2 is a definite Day 1 purchase for me.

  • I thought there was something wrong with MY ps3 what with it resetting each time!

    Anywho hope the grenade works better now, as Drake would say ‘This is so not cool!’

  • Great news, I was tired of my PS3 getting reset all the time. And this game looks AWESOME!!!

  • Great patch my main concern was the PS3 reseting after trying to quit the game. Naughty Dogs way of saying we shouldn’t ever quit the game? I kid, I kid.

  • Thanks for the update

  • hey Naughty Dog
    i would be nice 2 send me a code so i can play
    [DELETED]

  • I have a suggestion: When you are able to see your competitors or allies, you should be able to bring up their PSN card.

  • Cant wait for the full game to come out, cant stop playing the beta.

  • I would love to know the release date!

  • i wish i had the beta… i got infamous at launch but no beta code =/

  • i need the beta

  • Lots of us are still waiting for a beta code :(

  • It’ll be out Nov 3, 10 or 17. You heard it here first.

  • i play the beta every now and then…still dont know if im gunna get it…i dont like running so slow (there should at least be a sprint button!!) and it takes forever to kill people

  • Justin, any chance you can hook me up with a beta code? :)

    Well, can’t hurt to ask I suppose.

    take it easy.

  • Loving the opportunity to be in the beta! Hope to meet you guys online.

    Take care!

  • Can I have a beta code??

  • Got a beta code last night, was worried that the beep beep beep after I quit the game was my PS3 dying.

    And man, you sure didn’t make the coop easy =p

    Anywho, have a nice day :)

  • wow. thanks alot!
    Me and alot of my friends have been limiting our playing time on the beta coz of the ps3 hard resets.
    I’m glad u guys fixed it so quick!

  • Should add a King of the hill mode and a mode where your goal is to kill the other team’s leader so that team can’t re spawn anymore. Or free for all game where everyone wants to get the treasure in the middle and you get points for killing people if you hold the treasure.

  • Cool guys.. cya then.. SEEK me out.. Haskell420
