Found 2nd Sep 2009
Just seen that Play.com are giving access to the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta, set to start on 15th Sept and run until 12th October, if you pre-order the game from them.

At £39.99, it is not the cheapest pre-order around by any means, and whilst I would not want to advocate taking advance of an offer such as this................

................see you online ;-)

isn't the beta code with any pre-order of the game?

Original Poster

No, I don't believe so. There was an earlier beta code that came with pre-orders of Infamous, but the new beta access I have only seen mention of at Play. Amazon, HMV and the like have their own 'exclusives' on offer, but none are worth the pre-order, apart from this (more details @ ]Eurogamer)

"Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ran a closed Beta with a number of lucky players at the end of E3. Following on from this, it would appear that a more open Beta will be from September 15th to October 12th, in the UK at least. The catch? You have to pre-order a copy of Uncharted 2 at popular online retailer, Play.com.

The website states in the product description that customers who pre-order their copy will receive an exclusive code, which will gain them access to this Beta. Play.com also claim that the new Beta will be “significantly larger” than the post-E3 Beta and will feature “numerous maps”.

Have they released the code today because the beta starts tomorrow?

If I understood your question correctly...

Yes; the voucher code for redemption on the PlayStation Network has been released in advance of the Beta Trial starting (tomorrow).

Yikes - Mine was downloaded and installed in 30 mins this afternoon - darn peak time throttling!

I am not going to have time to play tonight, but I had a sneaky look see earlier, and the beta is up and running now - there were 102 people online when I checked it out. Seem to be 4 modes to play - think that three of them are co-op - can't remember exactly............looks great though

The game is awesome - cover system is great once again, and it seems to work in multiplayer to be honest - something I wasn't sure about. Lots of modes, but not enough players at the moment, so it takes an age to get a game sorted. Once in though, it runs smoothly, with a bit of lag now and then, but not a lot. One great feature is the cinema mode, which save the entire footage of your recent games, which you can then play back, watching the action via any player, with three different camera types - follow/orbit/free - it is very impressive. You can freeze the action, roll around and see exactly where that damn sniper was when you were shot!

Seems the Multiplayer should also be available to all as a downloadable demo on the store come Sept 29th

I’m pretty sure just reading reviews of our game won’t be enough to hold y … I’m pretty sure just reading reviews of our game won’t be enough to hold you over until we launch on October 13, so be sure to check out our Multiplayer Demo. If you pre-ordered UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves through GameStop (read Play), then your early access to the demo starts tomorrow and runs up until just prior to the launch of our game. If you haven’t pre-ordered, the Multiplayer Demo opens up to everyone via a PlayStation Network download on September 29.
