Naughty Dog Disables Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta Game Sharing On Multiple Accounts

Naughty Dog has disabled the game sharing for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta after an exploit allowed users to share the Beta with friends. If you had access to the Beta on your account, you could just download the beta by game sharing it with your friend, but now this method has been disabled in the latest update of the Beta.

Uncharted 4: Multiplayer Beta is exclusive to the users of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. This required the users to own the game either digitally or retail, and then access the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta through the main screen of the Nathan Drake Collection. You can read more details on how to access and download the Beta from here. This means that once the user had the Beta downloaded on his account, he could potentially share it with other users who never bought a copy of Nathan Drake Collection.

Naughty Dog has recently released a new update version 1.03 for the Uncharted 4: Multiplayer Beta and this update seems to have disabled game sharing, even for multiple accounts on the same system. Now the user is required to have a save data of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection in order to access the Beta. If you try to access the Beta on a different account that doesn’t contain a save data of Nathan Drake Collection, you will be greeted with the following screen.

Let us know what you think about this news in the comments below.

  • Nathan Beebe

    Is there a way to join up a match with friends

  • SoCalfool

    theres still a way around it…

    • bigevilworldwide1 .

      And hopefully they put a stop to that too…Sorry IF your too poor to purchase the Nathan Drake Collection…But idiots can check their entitlement at the door, your don’t deserve access to something just because you want it….

      • Alkaporty

        You’re dumb. They’re doing so only to push sales of their remasters. A beta is supposed to help the devs to make the final game better. Plus, like some said, aren’t PS+ subscribers supposed to get exclusive beta access? I don’t remember the last beta we were invited.

        Doing what ND do is douchey to say the least. Maybe people don’t give a shit about buying games they already own?

      • SoCalfool

        I bought the NDC…

      • SoCalfool

        also, it’s a beta. the more people testing it out the better.

    • Daobs_

      Which is? 🙂

    • TVippy

      What is this way? Can you share?

      So when I play my friend’s Nathan Collection, the save no longer creates on my end? Is that what they disabled???

      • SoCalfool

        yeah the save goes to their system. They have to log in to your psn on their system and create a save file, then upload it to the cloud. you download it on your system and bada boom, save file.

        • TVippy

          Hm, but previously, before this was patched, you could share play as a guest (visitor) and the save would still create on YOUR system?

          • SoCalfool

            idk, when I tried to shareplay the ndc with my cousin, everytime we tried to save it gave me back control of the game and the save file went to my system.

          • TVippy

            So you think the absolutely only way is to give your friend your PSN credentials?

          • SoCalfool

            not sure it’s the only way, but it’s how I did it for my cousin. Mind you, that’s my cousin. I don’t have to tell you to not do it with someone you don’t know personally and trust.

          • TVippy

            That’s my issue – the person that let me share play the Collection isn’t exactly my friend. No close friend of mine has this Collection.

        • SixelAlexiS

          I tried this method yesterday but whit USB, he logged on his PS4 and played the NDC on his PS4, saved a game and then he send me the gamefile.

          When i tried to put the save on my PS4 he said that i can’t put a save of a game that isn’t installed on console, so this will be the same for the cloud aka this method don’t work.

          • SoCalfool

            if you share play the NDC (not the beta), it will create a tile for it on your home screen. You can download the beta from there.

            you need the save data to be created with your psn, which is why your friend needs to log in to your psn, create the save data, and upload it to the cloud so you can download it onto your system.

          • SixelAlexiS

            i did this, but instead of upload the save, he passed me the save via email, and i put in an USB pen, the PS4 said “you can’t pass a save of an game that isn’t installed on PS4”, you think that with cloud is different?

          • SoCalfool

            that’s how I did it for my cousin. That’s weird that you’re getting that message. He was able to download the file from the cloud without any problems.

          • SixelAlexiS

            I have already download the beta with another method but, i friend of mine logged into MY account, saved the game of NDC with MY account and passed the save via email.
            I put the save on MY acount but when i tried to pass it on PS4 the console say something like “you can’t pass a save file of a game that isn’t installed on your PS4”, you think it work whit this method of cloud?

          • SoCalfool

            did you shareplay the NDC collection with your friend so that the game shows up in your home screen as a game you’ve recently played? that may do the trick.

          • SixelAlexiS

            Nope, i hope that this made the trick, i’m trying to do with a friend of mine, sadly most of them aren’t able to do the Shareplay (low speed connection).
            I let you know if the trick will work.

          • SoCalfool

            good luck. hope it works

          • SixelAlexiS

            It worked, thanks ^^

          • SoCalfool

            awesome. you’re welcome.

  • Kfal Balli

    To quote another disheartened fan

    “Lame thing to do considering Sony advertised PS+ as giving subscribers access to betas during the PS4 reveal. If they really genuinely cared about getting feedback for Uncharted 4 multiplayer they’d have made the beta open to everyone anyways, rather than locking it behind the purchase of yet another remaster. Just goes to show what they really think of all their fans and supporters.” -crim

    • bigevilworldwide1 .

      Bull….They NEVER said there wouldn’t be special betas ANNNNND its been CLEARLY advertised that to get access to the Uncharted 4 beta you had to PURCHASE the Nathan Drake collection…Again THAT was a clear FACT, the only people who claim otherwise are mentally retarded and this entitled crap needs to stop with the herp derp they said plus members would get to play betas THEY NEVER SAID ALL BETAS

      Sorry IF your too lazy or poor to purchase an amazing collection of games, but NOBODY deserves access to something just because they think they do when it actually has a requirement….

      Clearly the crying will happen again with the Doom beta that REQUIRED a purchase of Wolfenstein….Gotta love entitlement

      • Kfal Balli

        So people are poor because they didn’t want to repurchase the same games they already have lmao. The MP is trash anyhow. The single player on the other hand will be good.

        • John

          If i was too poor to get it I would call it trash too……. not really, grinch

          • Kfal Balli

            Are you mad bro?

          • John

            No, but obviously you are. Naughty dog hurt your feelings…. haha F U C K YOUR FEELINGS. LOL lil biiiaatch

          • Kfal Balli
