Uncharted 4’s Stress Test on PS4 Launches: Now Available After Initial Hiccup: “Amazing Numbers”

on March 4, 2016 12:47 PM

Naughty Dog and Sony Computer Entertainment just launched the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End stress test, and it was pretty much immediately served its purpose, toppled by the “stress” it was designed to test.


Luckily Naughty Dog was quick to solve the issue, and at least for now the servers are available.

Incidentally, Naughty Dog mentioned that the numbers they’re seeing are “amazing,” while co-founder Cristophe Balestra invited players to have patience, as the developer is “actively working” to cope with the traffic.

Update: Lead Game Designer Robert Cogburn shared that the server that handles vanity items and progression is down, which means that that part of the game won’t work until it’s fixed. Yet, the rest of the multiplayer is fully playable at the moment.

Update 2: rewards and progression have started working on my end, indicating that the problem has probably been fixed.
