You Can Play Uncharted 4 Multiplayer This Weekend, Without PlayStation Plus

Uncharted 4

Naughty Dog and Sony extend an invitation to all adventurers out there to join the next stress test of Uncharted 4 Multiplayer.

Rumors have started early today but now it’s crystal clear: there will be another beta test this weekend for the the multiplayer version of Uncharted 4.

From this Friday up until Sunday, we will be able to access the game and try its wonders out. And the best of all is that we do not need to be a member of PlayStation Plus this time, unlike the last test in December. Naughty Dog wants to have as many players as possible as testers so they have made the right decision here.

Testing Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: What We Need to Know

This is a clear call from Naughty Dog for us to jump in and help them tune the game prior to launch (currently scheduled for April 26th). As such, the experience we’ll get here could differ from the final experience we’ll receive once the game release next month. Disclaimers apart, we’ll jump right into the universe of Uncharted and experience the team deathmatch mode on two maps with mystical and sidekick load-out options. The download is approximately 7GB (although it may vary according to locations) and they have also confirmed that any progress you manage during this weekend will not be transferred to your game saves in the future.

Sony recommends at least 1Mbps/1Mbps connection to play Uncharted 4 gracefully and since this is a technical test we can also expect patches to be deployed and occasional downtimes and restarts. It seems like a little price to pay for the benefit of experience this game anyway but it’s good to know.

If you belong to the part of the community who actually gives feedback and reports bugs, you are welcome to do so on the Stress Test official forum. And if you are completely new to the game and do not have any clue of what Mystical and Sidekick mean (shame on you), then you better check their official FAQ.

How do you sign up? Head to the multiplayer open weekend client, available right now on PlayStation Store. It won’t be active until Friday though. The official timetables for the test are as follows:

  • Start: March 4th, 2016, at 9:00 AM Pacific
  • End: March 6th, 2016, at 11:59 PM Pacific

See you there!
