Naughty Dog recently held a beta for their upcoming game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The objective of the “Stress Test” was to analyze the network infrastructure as well as work on improving the game using feedback from fans. Fans should take comfort in the fact that the beta has been a success and the studio has achieved what they set out to do.
Lead Game Designer Robert Cogburn revealed the success of the recent multiplayer stress test in a tweet. The developer thanked the loyal fans for their participation and shared the good news that the opportunity allowed them to work out “a lot kinks”. It is good news for the fans as they can now expect a better experience when the game launches.
Since multiplayer has become such an important part of the Uncharted series, the studio has to make sure the game’s launch is not plagued with issues. Usually, multiplayer games often face network issues on launch, leading to anger from users who can’t enjoy the game as intended. This is the second beta that the studio has put in place for the game. It is fair to assume that most of the potential issues have been ironed out, given the fact that the recent beta was open to all PlayStation 4 users.
Looking at the impressions of gamers who played through the beta, Uncharted 4 is well on its way to see a stable launch. The beta had little issues and ran nearly perfect. The developer has promised more multiplayer info in the coming days. After being delayed thrice, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is currently scheduled to arrive on May 10.
