To sidestep this issue, log in through the Unchartered 4 single-player mode. Once you are able to launch the game and log in, try to access the multiplayer mode. 


Fix 3: Update the game to the latest version

If the game is not updated to the latest version, you will not be able to get it connected to the game servers.

This will cause issues like not being able to launch multiplayer mode. This is because the multiplayer mode requires you to communicate with the other players keeping the server as a mediator. 

When you face this error, take this as a reminder to update the game to the latest version. Also, turn on automatic updates over Wi-Fi so that the game is updated automatically whenever you connect to Wifi.


Fix 4: Check your internet connection

It is very important to have a reliable internet connection whenever you play a game online if the internet connection is slow, you will not be able to access the server once again.

If you are able to launch the game but the functionality of the game is messed up, this most likely means that the speed of your network is not sufficient.

To check for sure, you need to launch an internet speed meter tool. You can easily find one through a simple Google search. Once you get the report for the internet speed, you need to see if the speed is optimal for gameplay.

If the speed is slow and you are on a mobile network, switching to a wired connection might help. In other cases, you need to contact your internet service provider to help with the issue.


Fix 5: Install the game client’s beta version

There are some glitches in the regular version of the game that are not present in the beta testing version of the game.

Some players have found this also as a workaround. This will not solve your issue but if you are not interested in spending your time with the issue, you can try this solution.

Download the Beta version of the game client and try to play from that one. If this launches multiplayer for you then the issue is solved.


Fix 6: Check the status of the Unchartered 4 Game server

The gameplay that you are trying to launch depends entirely on the status of the game servers.

If too many players have logged in at the same time, there is a possibility that the server might crash. This is because the server is not made to withstand such huge amounts of traffic congestion. 

To check the status of the game server we will again use Google. Launch Google and search for Down Detector.

Now type in the name of the game server in the search bar for the down detector tool. You will see if there is a server outage reported especially in your area. If the server is down you will have to wait till the coast is clear before you can resume gameplay.


Fix 7: Reinstall the game

There are many files that are downloaded with the game database for the game to work properly.

The database of these files should have all the necessary files and these files must be in working condition. In the cases where certain files are missing or have gone corrupt, you will need a replacement for them.

To solve this, you need to delete the game and the related files database. Then reinstall the game, one done try launching the multiplayer mode to see if the issue is solved or not.


Fix 8: Contact the Unchartered 4 Support team
