Uncharted 4 First Multiplayer DLC Gets New Info [UPDATE]
Here's everything we know about Uncharted 4's Lost Treasures update and patch 1.08.
[UPDATE] The stream has now ended. Below is a recap of some of the key points.
Naughty Dog started off by confirming the expansion is called Lost Treasures. We also learned that patch 1.08 is introducing a ranking system (the max level will be 70).
Additionally, the new map is called Sunken Ruins, and it will look familiar to people who have played Uncharted 4's campaign. It's one of the smaller and "faster" maps in Uncharted 4, developers said. The map will be free for all players when it's released tomorrow.
Additionally, some new pirate skins are included with the update for characters such as Nate, Elena, Sully, Elena, Nadine, Flynn, and Eddie.
It was also confirmed that the multiplayer pack and update will be out tomorrow morning at around 10:30 AM PST or 11:30 AM PST. There won't be any new Trophies.
Regarding the 1.08 patch, developers said during the livestream that the update will deliver a "massive evolution" of the gameplay and weapon balance. Full patch notes, which are said to be incredibly long and extensive, will be posted on the Uncharted 4 website tomorrow.
The original story is below.
During the broadcast, Naughty Dog will showcase some of the expansion's content, including a new map, as well as the changes coming with patch 1.08. The expansion and patch are scheduled to come out on 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.
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 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."
