The multiplayer beta for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will only have a "fragment" of the full game's content, but it will still have plenty of new material to wrap your treasure hunting head around. Naughty Dog ran down all the magical items, helpful sidekicks, and (most importantly) customizable hats in a stream on Twitch.
First off, the beta will only have two maps, and it will focus solely on one mode: team deathmatch. The final game will include eight "brand new" maps at launch, and Naughty Dog community strategist Arne Meyer teased that Uncharted 4's post-release DLC may add more.
Much of the stream was spent exploring how Uncharted 4's customizable loadouts will function. If you played The Last of Us' multiplayer, you already have some idea of how you'll be able to allocate "Loadout Points" to items before matches. But The Last of Us didn't let you hire a minigun-toting goon or summon a haunted statue - the coolest new additions to the concept are easily the Mystical Items and the Sidekicks.
Click through the gallery above for more details on how the five items and four sidekicks featured in the beta will work, and check out the full stream archive below. And don't forget to play the beta from December 4 to December 13, assuming you bought Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
