Uncharted 4 A Thief's End isn't out until 2016 but turn those frowns upside down because a) it's Christmas and we have no time for frowns and b) there's a multiplayer beta which is coming very soon!
The early online gameplay tease was supposed to arrive on the 4th of December 2015 but Naughty Dog has delivered a festive treat by putting it up a day early. And yes, that means you'll get to play with Drake and pals in a competitive arena mode today the 3rd of December.
The multi beta begins at 5PM GMT today for people in Europe. Which is probably you. Do please remember that the only way to get into the beta for now is to own a copy of The Nathan Drake Collection - just pop in that disk (or load up the menu) and you'll get the chance to download the appropriate data. We've heard that the beta weighs in at around 7 gigs and you'll get to play one mode with a load of different available characters over 12 minute matches full of mayhem.
It really does look like a lot of fun.
We wouldn't be surprised if the beta is opened up to more players as it progresses, maybe a little closer to the happy giving time of Christmas. The beta runs until the 13th of December.
Uncharted 4 A Thief's End is out on the PS4 in March 2016.
