Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Public Demo Kicks Off Today

We say it may very well be the biggest multiplayer demo in history, what with its massive 1.5GB worth of content and nearly 80% of all the booster skills that will be available in the final version. So don't you want to sample it?

If you had the game pre-ordered from GameStop, you already had access a few weeks ago but if not, you can jump in as of today. This awesome demo is open to the public as of September 29, and with 4 maps, 2 co-op maps, new skins, the ability to create custom game modes for you and your friends, there's plenty to do. We're not sure if Sony will send out an official press release about this, but we haven't forgotten the date and we just had to remind you. We'd also like to add that even if you were in the beta test earlier this year, you'll definitely want to join in on the fun. They've added a whole lot more; the beta really only consisted of two maps, two modes, and a small handful of boosters, so the increase in content is indeed substantial. The game launches on October 13 so you'll certainly be able to play online when you buy the game - which you're definitely gonna do, right? - but we know some of you can be a little impatient.  So we're keepin' you updated.

Oh, and the average review score at this point is something super ridiculously high, like nine and a half, or something. Game of the Year? Yeah, we think so. But I maintain that inFamous isn't quite getting enough attention in the "best of the year" categories.

Alright, fresh meat!! Mwa-ha-ha!
Hopefully I'll finally be able to find a co-op game with more than one other person, haven't been able to find 3 in a while. Still an awesome friggin game though!! I'm assuming it drops tonight at midnight somewhere, not sure which time zone.

I might pass on this. I have the game preordered elsewhere. I will wait for the full experience, plus playing the actual game disc can start unlocking trophies.

I think I will do the same, I have the game pre-ordered and I personally enjoy exploring the offline game before going online. I generally complete a game before going online with it, it tends to give me a good skill base for the game online in the first place.

Normally, I would agree, but U2 probably plays pretty much like U1.

It just finished downloading, so I guess I'll know in a few minutes. : )

i agree, the beta was/is awesome. However, i didnt like the game mode like capture the flag. I dont know, it had a lot of those "flags" for a small map, so you cant really get anywhere without dying. Maybe its just the people playing i guess. i would head for the "flag", kill a guy, just to be killed by another guy right behind me.

Are you joking? You think I should spend time on a demo over the other games I still have to finish? If anything I've got to hurry up and finish them so when the 13th rolls around I can play the real thing.

Im so sad because Modern Warfare 2 comes out a month l8tr and Im going to play this game non stop all october. My friends are going to bug me to play COD WAW as well and I am trying to convence them to buy U2 and play this Great game with me before COD MW2 comes out. There are going to be times when im going to want to play both titles at once lol. But out of what i have been playing U2 will be GOTY. The graphics gameplay etc... are so great Naughty Dog are now one of my favorite Developers now.

"If you had the game pre-ordered from GameStop, you already had access a few weeks ago but if not, you can jump in as of today."

That above comment means it's available to ANYONE as of today.


John was a little off on a few details concerning the BestBuy buy 1 get another 1/2 off a few weeks back, let's hope he's correct on this. I've been checking the PSN several times and yet to see it available for download.

the co-op arena.
the level that they showed at E3, are there going to be more maps that gameplay style?
thats by far my favorite mode in the beta and im really hopeing they add more on the games release.
other than that theres only 2 co-op maps where you have to collect the treasure and survive the onslaught.

i hope there still working on the MP because the connection times are horrendous.
it takes me like 10 minutes to connect to the servers, 10 minutes to find a bloody game and get started.
than theres so much lag its driving me nuts.
you stand on a item, hit triangle 17 million times 10 seconds later you pick up the item.
i got killed so many times last night because i was trying to pick up items and did not notice a enemy creeping up on me.

another thing they need to fix is the melee.
allot of the times i would go to melee a enemy, instead he melees me i turn around and he strangles me, you mash triangle like a 5 year old on red cordial but you still die.
once they fix the connection speeds, in game lag, and melle/ strangle things its all good.
the matchmaking system should be like MAG.
i played it for the first time today, 2 minutes to connect to servers 2 minutes to select layout 2 minutes to find game and get cracking.
and no lag what so ever.
uncharted 2 needs to be more like mag and less like resistance 2.

Is this worldwide or just the US as I've not played any since the first inFAMOUS related beta codes were given out?

I also agree that inFAMOUS is a very underrated game and feel that if P'type had released first everyone would have accepted how much better inFAMOUS is than that game(which was ok but just not in the same class as SP's great effort)-a lot of 360 only gamers were so keen for it to beat inFAMOUS that they really went OTT supporting a game PS3 gamers could play anyway. If they'd layed it pre inFAMOUS then it would've been forgotten and each would have stood on it's own merits I feel.

Oh, whatever, can't wait for some more U2 MP to see if it's even better now! So 'opefully it's in the eU store this evening! Also, very impressed that the scores for U2 have been so high(even a 21/20!)and am VERY interested to see how Eurogamer(UK) and the 360 loving Edge spin their 7/10's when they land! And, trust me, they will score it lower than "Let's Tap" and you ALL know it! In just the same way that R2 and MGS4 and KZ2 weren't up to those tapping minigames!

first try to connect error try again, second time 10 minutes later im in.
matchmaking 10 minutes later im in a game.
than 4 games in a row as soon as im in connection error.
than 5th game i finished.
than 6th game connection error as soon as i get in.
7th game i get half way through than connection error.

come on ND dont dissapoint me!
every single game sony has released has been fooked online.
resistance 2 fu**ed.
killzone 2 fu**ed.

I read on another site that it's available 2pm EDT(Eastern Daylight Time) which translates to 7pm GMT(Greenich Mean Time)...so if you're on GMT check the store around 7pm.
I hope this info is right!

It's definitely worth taking a look at, 2 new maps, 4 game modes, CO-OP, almost all boosters, and so many things to buy! This is the greatest multiplayer demo ever! It's a blast, I love Gold Rush, by round 10 it just gets nasty.
