A few days ago, Naughty Dog and Sony Computer Entertainment treated a select few to a closed beta of the up and coming “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.” The said event has ended recently, and with it the contest that aims to give away free copies of the game.
While met with enthusiasm, the closed beta was not one without questions, the least of which was if the upcoming game will have an open-beta for both its single- and multiplayer aspects. Latin Post reported that the answer to the question was in fact a resounding “no,” also stating that in order to continue enjoying the multiplayer beta, players have to actually purchase “Uncharted 4: The Nathan Drake Collection.”
Adding to this, recent talks with Naughty Dog’s Robert Cogburn (the game’s designer) cited why the game may be the last part of the “Uncharted” series. Cogburn stated challenges associated with expanding a universe that is constrained and is fairly grounded. “These games are hard to make,” Cogburn states. Still, he did not deny the fact that the game indeed brought them success, yet felt that the team had to break out from its usual concepts.
As for the contest, details have been relatively scarce, yet what we do know was that it was limited to residents of North America. Ecumenical News stated that people in the closed beta were entitled to a sort of raffle, a lucky draw with which the grand prize as previously mentioned is a copy of the game. It was also reported that an especially lucky player will win a copy of “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End: Libertalia Collector’s Edition.”
As of now there aren’t any reports of the game having been scheduled for another closed beta. Interested gamers that want a taste of the action may have to wait until the final version of ”Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” is officially released, which is set sometime around March 2016.
