Starhawk Beta Thrown In For Good Measure
We’re all pretty excited here at Dealspwn for Nathan Drake’s next adventure, and with less than a month to go until the release developers Naughty Dog have announced on their official website that that the game has gone Gold, along with details of an added beta-based surprise.
After a lengthy Beta period in which many PS3 owners got to get their hands on the multiplayer component, the development for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has come to a close ahead of its European release date on November 2nd. However, those looking to get hold of the title will find a little something extra in their copies; an early access invite to join the beta test for Starhawk.
And as an added bonus, all retail copies of Uncharted 3 will include a voucher code for early access to the upcoming Starhawk Public Beta, which will be coming in early 2012. Just like Uncharted 3, Starhawk promises to provide an incredible multiplayer experience that only PS3 can deliver.
In addition to the beta invite, Naughty Dog will be throwing in a few Behind-The-Scenes videos on Blu-Ray disc as well that detail the development and production of their latest game. It’s not quite as exciting as the chance to pilot an aircraft that can transform into a Mech, but it’s a bonus all the same.
While plenty of PS3 owners will have already placed their pre-order for Uncharted 3, this announcement might sway any other stragglers that have yet to do so, as both games are looking to be huge hits for the Playstation 3.
