Developer Naughty Dog are expanding Uncharted 4’s multiplayer experience this week, by adding some free new content. A new game mode will be arriving, alongside an array of new vanity items, three new weapons, and character skins.
“First up, we’re introducing a new permanent game mode: King of the Hill,” Naughty Dog’s senior communication manager Scott Lowe shared on the PlayStation Blog. “It tasks two teams with fighting for control of rotating capture points in order to reach the score limit. King of the Hill requires careful coordination and skilled use of Multiplayer’s core combat and movement systems.”
“However, even if victory seems assured, King of the Hill offers a unique twist — after the score limit has been reached, the losing team has one last chance to make a comeback through what we call the Victory Hill. The leading team must capture the Victory Hill to win, but if the losing team takes it, they get a second chance at glory.”
New character skins inspired by The Last of Us are also arriving.
Uncharted 4’s multiplayer update is slated to arrive in the US on Friday, March 17. You can expect to see it in New Zealand either Friday night, or Saturday morning.
