Naughty Dog has unveiled plans for the multiplayer of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The developer noted that all maps and modes will be free with cosmetics and in-game items unlockable through gameplay. The developer also released a road-map of updates that players can look forward to, all the way up till Spring 2017.
Lead game designer Robert Cogburn said, “This means that the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community won’t be fragmented by different types of DLC and that those who are loyal in participating in the community will be rewarded. Our DLC release approach will represent an entirely new direction for Naughty Dog, and we are confident it will have a hugely positive impact and keep the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community thriving.
“We strongly believe that players must be on an even playing field. To do this, we made Relics, a currency that can only be earned through gameplay and will be able to unlock all DLC, present and future. We will be putting future gameplay items ranging from Mysticals to Boosters into DLC Gameplay Chests. Each Chest will contain new gameplay items…Over time, Naughty Dog will release a variety of new maps, modes and gameplay items at no additional cost (including Co-op), that will introduce new rules and play styles.”
Cogburn also noted that when spending Relics (earned through winning matches and finishing dailies), you can choose between either a DLC Vanity or Gameplay Chest and you’ll always get a new item with each chest opened.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is out on May 10th for PS4.
