Update: The Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta will start a day early, with Sony opening it up tomorrow at 5pm UK time.
The news was confirmed to us by PS Blog manager Fred Dutton, after it was posted by Sony Europe's Twitter account.
Original: The Uncharted 4 beta is 7GB in size and can be downloaded from the PlayStation Store providing you own the Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection either on disc or digitally.
Those looking forward to the beta will be pleased to know that you can download it from this Friday by heading to the Nathan Drake Collection Tile on your console. From here you should choose the option marked Overview, select the Uncharted Multiplayer Beta tile and finally, you'll be given the option to download.
The multiplayer beta starts this Friday, December 4 and will last until Sunday, December 13, although there will be no pre-load so you'll need to download it on the day of release.
