The cat is officially out of the bag and the Uncharted 3 beta has been dated, and explained. The beta for the game begins on June 28th for PlayStation Plus subscribers which should be just about every single person on the PlayStation Network as fallout from the recent network outage. For everyone else, that date will be on July 4th, and will run until July 13th.
The modes offered in the beta will be limited to Team Deathmatch, Team Objective, Free for All, Plunder, High Stakes, and 3-Team Deathmatch. The Multiplayer Beta will also be introducing the Power Play feature, where these events will give the losing team a chance to recuperate some points and as detailed earlier by IGN, they include:
Marked Man – “A person on the winning team is marked, and the losing team gets 3 points if they kill him. Meanwhile, the winning team gets double cash for each kill and a special medal if the Marked Man doesn’t die.”
Cursed – “The winning team sees all characters as skeletons and friendly fire is turned on. Each time the losing team gets a kill or the winning team kills one of its own, the losing team gets two points. Meanwhile, the winning team gets double cash for each member of the losing team killed.”
Exposed – “The winning team’s location is revealed to the losing team. The winning team gets double cash for each losing team member killed.”
Double Damage – “Losing team inflicts double damage. Winning team earns double cash for each kill.”
