Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Revealed, Playable at PlayStation Experience

Robert Cogburn's Avatar Posted by on Oct 27, 2015 // Lead Game Designer

So it finally happened! The Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Multiplayer was revealed to the world. The trailer shown earlier today at the PlayStation press conference for Paris Games Week gave people a glimpse of all the hard work the Naughty Dog multiplayer team has put into it.

And hey, if you’re joining us at PlayStation Experience this December, you’ll be able to go hands-on!

Over the course of development for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer there have been a number of ideas that sounded great on paper, which were tried and failed. This happened time and time again but through each iteration there was one nugget of “that is cool” that we would cling to and bring with us into the next iteration. We were constantly applying our lessons learned on our previous experiences with Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3, and The Last of Us which helped shape an incredibly exciting, fast, and deeply rich multiplayer game.

Expect the teamwork, over-the-top action-adventure, and detail-rich gameplay environments you’ve come to expect from the Uncharted series Multiplayer mode. We have greatly enriched multiplayer with elements you may have caught in the trailer.

One thing we’ve done in particular is introduce a number of systems completely unique to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Multiplayer.

  • Sidekicks: When you are in a pinch you can call in your friendly Sidekick to help you. These are unique, AI controlled characters that come equipped with unique abilities that can help turn the tide of a battle.
  • Mysticals: These are supernatural abilities from the Uncharted series that give a player unique powers. See if you can recognize what Mystical abilities we are showing off in the trailer.
  • Last, you will be able to leverage the grappling hook in a number of locations in our multiplayer maps. We have also heavily leveraged this exciting mechanic for our melee. Yes, you will be able to land on people and take them out –would you expect less?

If you are at Paris Games Week, please join us at the PlayStation booth on the show floor to get your hands on our first playable demo of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Multiplayer. This demo will also be at PAX Australia from October 30th to November 1st, and at Lisboa Games Week from November 5th to November 8th.

If you can’t join us at one of these shows, you can gain exclusive access to the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta by buying Uncharted: The Nathan Drake collection. The Beta will run from December 4th to December 13th, 2015.

We look forward to seeing you online in the final, full version of Multiplayer when Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is released worldwide on March 18th, 2016.

Multiplayer looks amazing! I can’t wait to play the Beta!!! Naughty Dog you never fail to surpass expectations.
Uncharted has always been my favorite multiplayer and the only multiplayer I continue to play long after it’s release. I love it!
I have only one question…will we be able to play split screen in Uncharted 4 multiplayer like Uncharted 3? Me and my sister play together for hours and would be so disappointed if we weren’t able to do so in Uncharted 4 multiplayer.

Beta Access for PS plus>?

    You need the Nathan Drake collection. That’s your only way in. If you get the collection, you will need the disk to play it.


     

    + Septrelo on October 27th, 2015 at 3:08 pm said:

    + amackey10 You need the disc version of the Collection to play the beta?


     

    + amackey10 on October 27th, 2015 at 5:43 pm said:

    No. You need this disk IF you get the disk version. If you get the digital version, you don’t need a disk.

So happy to see my favorite multiplayer of all times is coming back and it’s looking amazing! Naughty Dog, can’t be more proud. Hope customization is still very important :) Also, HATS!

I wish there were more Sony games that weren’t shooters. How about some more AAA platformers? You’re missing out on tons of teenagers, women, and yes adult men, who aren’t FPS fanatics.

    Did u got Little Big Planet 3? Also Ratchet and clank is coming too… How About Rayman Legends?

That’s extremelly disappoiting that Naughty Dog is downgrading like Ubisoft.
The game was announced as 1080p@60fps target, later downgraded on single player to 30fps, now we don’t even have a mode with 1080p@60fps!

900p is ridiculous, we are in 2015, TVs are fullHD for years now, a first party game should be forbidden to deliver such a ridiculous performace!

It’s not a multiplatform game, it’s exclusive, you have ONE machine to deal with!
There are people playing in 4K, and you are delivering a heavy hitter like Uncharted @900p???

It’s a multiplayer mode, we need visibility, have a good look at distance, every pixel matters!

Naughty Dog, reconsider this, there’s a lot of unnecessary eye candy on this multiplayer video, vegetation, shadows, textures…
Remove a part of that and give 1080p@60fps, that’s what matters on a multiplayer mode!!!!

I really thought ND was superior than DICE, Ubisoft etc, but now… it’s really disappointing.

Not that excited anymore.


     

    + ReptileHand on October 27th, 2015 at 6:06 pm said:

    wait so people complained about a lack of 30 FPS for Uncharted Collection yet they complain about 30 FPS for singleplayer?

    but I understand. My friend showed himself switching between 30 and 60 FPS on his Last of Us game last year, so I understand the frustration. I don’t understand it either but it must be something technical, somehow?


     

    + warezIbanez on October 29th, 2015 at 12:22 pm said:

    The beta is at 900p. That said, I think the final game should be at 1080p, 60 frames – Keep polishing that game, ND, I know you can do it!


     

    + Sean_Pierce on October 31st, 2015 at 10:18 am said:

    @ReptileHand Unfortunately there are people who view 30fps as a visual flaw, even though we’ve all enjoyed many games, including the Uncharted series, that way on the PS3. There’s a good number but under the minority spotlight that wants 30fps option for The Nathan Drake Collection (default in 60fps) while others are disappointed that the single player for Uncharted 4 is 30fps. I’m in the 30fps camp as the game felt more cinematic that way. And don’t get me wrong, it’s still a game in the end so 30fps is perfect for video games that play that way (24fps is the frame rate for actual films).

    I really hope Naughty Dog changes their minds about providing us a 30fps lock like The Last of Us Remastered provided. I’m really surprised they didn’t retain that for The Nathan Drake Collection. I wrote a blog post about it (copy and paste this if you want to read it: http://bit.ly/1iugfCg ), tagging Naughty Dog and some of its individual members on Twitter with it, in the hopes it gets their attention. I doubt it’s working unfortunately. I mean if they think 30fps is that bad, they wouldn’t even be doing it for Uncharted 4’s Single player. It’s not like the game was unplayable when it was 30 to begin with.

If Naughtydog can’t get Uncharted 4 running at 60fps locked,then pass it on to Bluepoint Games.

Aaagh damn came here expecting to see the trailer since I missed the press conference.Really ND?…no video here on the Blog?…gonna make me search on YT?….writing this before watching of course and I really like REALLY hope you guys took an approach similar to UC2 which is the best online ever made along with TLoU.
Been praying for UC4 to not be like that garbage UC3 online.

The multiplayer looks horrible. Just as bad as uncharted 3 or worse. You guys ruined uncharted multiplayer by trying to do to much and adding to much garbage. Bring back the uncharted 2 multiplayer!!

    @darkone_pr. Says the guy who probably hides out somewhere on the map and try’s to earn kills from a distance instead of getting down in the middle of the fight where all the skilled players,action and fun is. What happened to the days when the only thing that would separate you from the rest of the pack was your skill. Not these stupid and cheap perks! If I wanted that garbage I would play cod!

didn’t you listen to the feedback after the disaster that was UC3 MP ???
there is absolutely no need for these super power sidekicks nonsense , it actually will hurt the game
You’ve taken what made Uncharted 3 MP bad and made it even worse which is really hard to do

So, so, SO bad. UC2 had one of the best mutilplayer experiences that any of us have played. We don’t need all these silly powerups and whatnot. All that does is attempt to coverup poor gameplay mechanics. ND used to be great because they made games they were passionate about. Now, they are just followers who are looking to make as much money as they possibly can.

If you’re going to have mystic aka super natural elements in the game. At least give us the option for a mode without them! please. The MP for UC3 was annoying with those kickbacks that’s what these “Mystics” are just another name for Kickbacks. And it seems you all took elements from the last of us. At least give us an option to have the UC2 multiplayer or something on the PS4 something!

Trailer looks amazing. Exciting to see some updates and fresh new ideas integrated into the MP. TLOU had its own special “flavor” or what have you, of MP and I think ND is creating that again here with Uncharted 4. It looks like a number of people are unhappy about these new additions, and that’s your prerogative, but I implore you to wait until you try it. A trailer is no reason to swear off ND.

All Naughty Dog has to do is put a multiplayer mode mode in Uncharted 4 that plays like uncharted 2 and they will be golden. Idk what this is but at the moment I am just looking forward to that single player. I am not the only one who feels this way either. So So and Naughty Dog please listen. Please Keep it Simple and just add a multiplayer mode that plays like uncharted 2, keep the speed but also keep it simple.

Please, Naughty Dog, listen to myself and the others and bring back the Uncharted 2 multiplayer formula. This multiplayer is what catapulted the series to where it’s at today. Uncharted 2 was and still is the best MP game I’ve ever played. Let’s change that with Uncharted 4!
