9 Comments

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's first multiplayer expansion is coming very soon. Naughty Dog has announced that the add-on, alongside a new patch, will arrive this coming Wednesday, June 29.

Included with the expansion are things like a new map and "updates to multiplayer that many [players] have been asking for," Naughty Dog said in a blog post. There will also be new guns, boosters, taunts, and skins, as well as new features in the form of custom matches and custom loadout names. Also included is a "revamp" to the ranked team deathmatch mode.

People who own the Uncharted 4 Triple Pack (which also comes with the single-player DLC sometime down the road), will get extra items come Wednesday with the update.

Naughty Dog will showcase Uncharted 4's new content in a Twitch broadcast on Tuesday, June 28, starting at 11:30 AM PST / 2:30 PM EST. A second livestream will be held on Thursday, June 30, where the multiplayer team will offer a "deep dive" into the ranked team deathmatch changes.

Here's the Uncharted 4 DLC roadmap, in case you missed it:

Uncharted 4 launched on May 10 and sold 2.7 million copies in its first week. GameSpot's Uncharted 4 review scored the action-adventure game a 10/10.

"Uncharted 4 is a challenge to the medium. In its writing, in its design, in its understanding of what makes games unique, Uncharted 4 is something to aspire to," critic Mike Mahardy said. "It's a shining example. And we'll be talking about it for years to come."

Coop should have been the 1st dlc. everyone's waiting for it. weird choice too. lots of players will have stopped playing this by fall.

MP is a lot of fun, but sometimes it feels like there's too many gimmicks. I hope for the return of a classic mode (just long gun, pistol and gear) somewhere along the line. ranked match is really weird, bordering on frustrating. i've been on platinum 1 for a week now and i just can't win the qualifiers to diamond 3. in ranked i exclusively get matched with really bad teammates (0 kill, 10-12 deaths bad) and i've been in the qualifiers 3 or 4 times now. makes you wonder how those people got that far. and if i do get some descent teammates and we're in the lead 2 of my teammates quit/disconnect and we lose to sheer numbers. this is also where the gimmicks come in. in uncharted 3 i could handle being down a man or two, but in uncharted 4 when there's 2 hunters and a brute up my ass there's just no way i can eject the bullets from my gun fast enough ;) in all other game modes aswell, being down a man or two is surprisingly hard to compensate compared to previous uncharted games.

Furthermore i'd love if the hero weapon long guns all lose that additional loadout point they have compared to the pistol hero weapons (hero long guns LP cost: long gun + mod 1 + mod 2 + 1 LP, hero pistols: pistol + mod 1 + mod 2), which would make it possible to use to awesome hero weapons with a grenade and a somewhat usable booster like mark on damage lvl 2 and still choose something to pour your in-match-money into. I'm still hoping for a return of sure foot/team safe, because i hate hate hate getting knocked down, it's pretty much a guaranteed death with a knockdown time of several seconds and can too be very frustrating.

quick question at the end: have you guys noticed wether the mods "reload speed" and "aimed strafe speed" are actually worth it? i noticed only a very slight decrease of reload time (almost nothing when compared to the difference in u3) and the same for aimed strafe speed. worth it or not? i switch between elena's and sully's mettler (clip size + either reload speed or aimed strafe speed) but i'm thinking about just using the clip-mode and put the rest of the LP somewhere else (like a nice magnum). what do you guys think?

Will those new weapons be added to the single player as well? I don't give 2 squirts of piss about the multiplayer but I would probably play through the campaign again with some new weapons. Hope its more then a few 7 or 8 new guns would be cool and get me to play the campaign again or at least 5.

EA, Naughty Dog, RockStar, CDPR and 343i giving free DLC and game mechanic updates recently? I'm glad that some are beginning to set the precedent for content like this.

Hopefully other developers will follow up on this in the future. I was pretty upset with Bethesda's DLCs this round (Wasteland Workshop 1, 2 and 3).

Hell yeah, the multiplayer is UC4's best feature. More maps and weapons will make this that much better.

@Jimbowesker: i gotta admit though, all of the maps are brilliant. usually there's 1 or 2 maps i don't like but the starting maps are all amazing. pirate colony being my favourite.

also i'm hoping they won't add any more submachine guns, those give me such a headache.

@RaveNRolla: Yeah I know right? It seems like everyone always chooses the subs too. They almost seem overpowered.
