Uncharted 4 Open Multiplayer Beta Coming This Weekend - in the UK
If you're living in Europe, you're in luck.
A new listing on the European PlayStation Store (which has already been deleted) confirms the existence of a pending Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer open beta. It’s for European players only, so anyone in America or elsewhere is out of luck. Beginning at 17:00 GMT on March 4, and ending at an unspecified time on March 6, the Uncharted 4 multiplayer weekend will allow you to play Team Deathmatch on three maps. According to the listing, the client will require a 9.6GB download and the gameplay will output at 1080p. Here’s the full description:
Get a taste of the Uncharted 4 multiplayer action ahead of Nathan Drake’s upcoming adventure, exclusive to PlayStation 4.
During the Open Weekend, which runs from 17:00GMT 4 March and finishes on 6 March, you’re invited to play team deathmatch on three maps based on stunning locations from the single player campaign.

A similar beta for U.S. audiences has not been announced. Last December, Naughty Dog launched a closed beta for owners of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Following that campaign, the studio's director of communications Arne Meyer said that there were "no plans" for an open beta period in a comment on the PlayStation Blog.
While the Uncharted series is a single player experience first and foremost, its multiplayer is a decent feature that gives the gamers more reason to enjoy the game. I remember playing the multiplayer on Uncharted 2 once and I have enjoyed it. I never tried the multiplayer on Uncharted 3 though, but I'm looking forward to try the multiplayer on Uncharted 4.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and will release on April 26 in North America and April 27 in Europe.
