Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception beta ends, over 1.5 million players took part
Naughty Dog, the game’s developer, shut down the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception last night at 9:00pm PDT, but not before over a staggering figure of over 1.5-million players had already taken part in it.
To be exact, the beta attracted around 1.53 million players likes to get specific and we also did not want to miss mentioning the extra 300,000 players who took part- during the period the multiplayer beta was up and running.
The beta was originally closed to the general public, with only a select few able to take part. The ‘select few’, mentioned earlier, were those players who were in possession of a beta key. However, after a week of closed beta, Naughty Dog and Sony decided
to open the doors and make the beta open to everyone.
It was during this time that the beta managed to reach the astronomical figures at which it stands today. The beta will have given the developers plenty of data, information and feedback which Naughty Dog will plan on using to polish the multiplayer experience
The beta also rewarded players who took part, as the progress in the beta would be carried forward to the full release of the game in the form of various rewards. The rewards themselves ranged from in-game cash to vinyl packs which players unlocked as they
leveled their ranks up.
There were issues in the beta as well, with a vast majority of players losing their progress data and having been reset to level 1. Naughty Dog responded swiftly and informed the participants who were affected that their ‘level’ could not be restored in
the beta but their progress was being charted.
Players would still be getting the rewards and could keep checking their stats on the developer’s official website. The beta itself had four updates, reaching version v1.04 before closing down; each version brought with new game modes and maps.
The beta overall was a huge success and Sony and Naughty Dog seemed to be in a boastful mood. It would be hard to blame them with statistics showing that the players in the beta had an average of 1,200 kills.
However, it seems that players also need to work on their aim slightly as out of the 48-billion shots that were fired, only 1.9-billion of them resulted in kills. All of this took place in over 22-million matches.
It seems Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is set to have a solid multiplayer component, couple that with the standard award winning single player campaign the game has become so well known for, and it seems that Uncharted 3 could already be a contender for
game of the year.
Players can find out for themselves when the game releases on the 1st of November, in the mean time, will keep you updated on the latest developments in Uncharted and gaming news.
