After yesterday brought disturbing reports from the Uncharted 3 Beta front line, Naughty Dog has confirmed that many players have been irrevocably reset back to level 1 by a nasty glitch; losing all experience and character data in the process. Progress towards unlocks in the full version, however, is still safe. You can read up on this latest SNAFU over at the official site.
Before you start sharpening your pitchforks and applying fresh tar to your torches, it's important to remember that this is what beta testing is for. Every glitch, issue or problem encountered at this stage arms Naughty Dog with the data they need to ensure a smooth, glitch-free launch this November.
