The Uncharted 3 Beta got off to a disappointing start earlier this week, with a number of issues affecting playability. The Welcome Back PlayStation Plus offer give every PSN user access to the beta, and a few hours after going live the servers were overloaded with lots of players trying to connect at the same time.
The game matchmaking screen struggling to cope for the first few hours after going live, and soon after Players lucky enough to clear that hurdle intermittently found themselves being kicked from games. More worryingly were the reports of slow framerates, freezing issues and even system crashes.
Naughty Dog were quick to react saying:
“RE: framerate + system freezes: we’re looking into this right now it’s not consistent or everyone so it’s taking a bit of time to track down.”
Naught Dog have since released a patch to address of of these issues. Weighing in at 18MB, it will automatically download the next time you boot up the beta. A changelog on the patch wasn’t released as Naughty Dog were working way into the night to try and get the issues sorted.
