For those of you in the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves multiplayer beta, you've already spotted a few a things that need fixing, right? Well, that's why they call it a "test."
Anyway, you'll be happy to know that Naughty Dog is already hard at work on a few tweaks that will – ideally – continue to make the multiplayer experience better and better during the course of the beta. And it appears they've already pinpointed a few major bugs: first, there was an issue that caused your PlayStation 3 to suddenly restart when you close the beta down, and while it doesn't impact the beta play, it's still annoying. As of now, they've already made a change to the competitive multiplayer; the rounds used to run only to 25 kills, and now the goal is 50 (clearly for the benefit of longer matches). They've upgraded the Plunder matches, too; instead of 3 "captures" to win, it is now 5. The updates and fixes won't end here, of course, because Naughty Dog isn't about to ignore us when we're testing one of the most promising games of the generation so far. For our part, we very much enjoy the beta and while it's clear that it's a tad bare-bones, it's still a ton of fun. We also have tremendous faith in the developers, so we're not too worried about the issues we've seen.
If you haven't scored a spot in the beta yet, you're definitely missing out. There are only two maps and two game modes to select from, but the overall entertainment factor always remains high. Stay tuned for our impressions coming this week.
