As of today the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End opens to players who purchased Uncharted: The Nathan Drak Collection.
With five-on-five deathmatch modes players can get their first taste of the online component of Uncharted 4. For the first time on multiplayer, users can perform one of Nathan Drake’s signature moves and swing over drops and across crevices using rope grappling hooks.
Adding a new dimension to multiplayer, players can use supernatural power-ups to help take on the enemy, including:
- The supernatural “Djinn Mystical” power; a powerful addition to any character’s arsenal, bringing explosive, fiery attacks to game play;
- The “Cintamani Stone Mystical”, which revives teammates and your own character quickly, taking them from a downed state back to combat-ready.
Not only do players have the chance to call on their teammates they can also call on new sidekicks. As the name suggests, sidekicks can help destroy the other team, including the Brute, the Savior, and the Marksman, each with their own game-altering elements.
Naughty Dog is asking players to share their favourite elements of the game to have their final say ahead of games official launch on March 18 2016.
The beta is available in Australia from December 4 to December 13 2015.
