Uncharted 3 comes with early access to Starhawk multiplayer beta

The moment we stopped playing Uncharted 2 we knew we wanted to play Uncharted 3, so we don’t really need anything else to sell us on the game. We appreciate the collector's editions or Subway sandwiches, but if the game shipped in a dingy cardboard sleeve with a blank disc that had “Uncharted 3” written on it in marker we’d be fine. In spite of this, Sony revealed one last goodie to sell you on the game you’ve been dying to play for the last two years: early access to the Starhawk multiplayer beta.

On the PlayStation Blog today Naughty Dog’s Eric Monacelli revealed that Uncharted 3 had gone gold, meaning Naughty Dog was finished with the retail build and the code was off to be published. He then revealed that the game will receive a pass for early access to the Starhawk online beta. A follow-up to Warhawk, the public beta for the futuristic war game is planned for early 2012, and Uncharted 3 purchasers are guar teed to be one of the first in line for the action. Like we said, we didn’t need anything extra to sell us on the game, but we appreciate Sony giving us this offer nevertheless.

    You don't think they might have done this to get out awareness of Starhawk, instead of vice versa? Because everybody's going to get Uncharted anyway, but relatively few are interested in Starhawk. This will raise well-deserved awareness for Starhawk

    YESSSS. I really loved Warhawk, even though I got into it fairly late. The fact that I could play splitscreen online with a friend really made it that much better - anyone know if Starhawk has 4 player splitscreen online like Warhawk? Also I get to get Uncharted 3 a week early since I'm going to the event in Dallas, CAN'T WAIT

    Uncharted 3 can suck it... suck it big time.

    If the beta starts soon after Uncharted 3 is released, then my code isn't going to get used.

    I can't wait to play UC3 but I have no desire to play or participate in the Starhawk beta.

    As if there wasn't already reason enough to get Uncharted <3
