Hope you're one of the 150 people who scored codes to enter the multiplayer beta test for Uncharted 2. It's live as we speak and people are already downloading it.
No word on if the beta test is only for the online competitive modes, or if it will include the co-op multiplayer as well. It all sounds good, though, so here's hoping you've got enough space on your hard drive.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves features multiplayer environments directly from the game as well as custom maps that users can edit as they please. Competitive multiplayer allows for up to 10 players in heroes-versus-villains matches and there's a five on five Deathmatch mode, plus the spiffy-sounding Plunder mode. Co-op multiplayer has three players work together to accomplish various goals and kill various enemies. There's a combo system and a weapons upgrading system that also come into play presumably to encourage teamwork for better bonuses.
Check out our preview and get to the downloading, if you haven't already.
Thanks to all the tipsters who called this one in!
