Uncharted 4 Plunder Mode Revealed, Playable at PAX East

If you’re headed to PAX East this weekend, you are in for a treat! Uncharted 4 Multiplayer will be playable in the PlayStation booth all weekend, and you’ll be the first to try out an unrevealed game mode — Plunder.

If you haven’t played it in Uncharted 2 or Uncharted 3 — for shame. Plunder is a Capture the Flag type game mode but with an Uncharted twist — you can throw the idol (AKA flag)!

Great teamwork is key to winning the match as you’re tasked with finding the idol on the map and bringing it to your home treasure chest. Plunder will be playable on the three maps you’ve seen in the Uncharted 4 Beta and Multiplayer Stress Test — Island, Madagascar City, and Rooftops.

For those familiar with the classic Plunder game type, we’ve made a few updates. In previous Uncharted games, people carrying the idol could not traverse with it; we removed this constraint. Also, Plunder has been a five-on-five experience in the past; we changed that to four vs. four. No doubt this may cause shortness of breath for fans of the mode, but worry not! Given the number of mechanics that have been introduced into our multiplayer’s moment-to-moment gameplay, Plunder at four vs. four is perfect and we hope fans that experience this mode at PAX East feel the same.

We still have so much to share with our fans that have been waiting a long time to hear more about multiplayer. The reveal of Plunder is just another piece. Let me assure you, what we will be revealing soon after PAX East will please a lot of people.

We’ll have a few people from Naughty Dog at the booth all weekend — so come by, try out Plunder, and chat with us. We’d love to meet our fans!

See you at PAX East!

  • I’ve seen the future, and it belongs to goofy victory dances

  • May 10th so close now

  • Plunder is so epic.
    Treasure is personal.

  • Not much longer! Going through Uncharted 2 right now and chasing the Platinum. Don’t think I am going to have time to get the Uncharted 3 Platinum before May 10th. Love this franchise!

  • Please tell me that’s a taunt

  • I can’t wait to play it for the first time, it looks amazing.

  • I’m all about dat plundah

  • I can wait

  • Awesome! I think I would have preferred 5 vs 5 Plunder with no sidekicks and mysticals, but I can’t wait to try it out. :D

    Please tell me the game also has Free-for-all and 3TDM! Especially Free-for-all, that was my most played mode in Uncharted 3, I think, and the best way to develop your skills as a lonewolf.

    • We’ve more modes to discuss soon. You’ll know about the entire MP experience before launch!

    • I doubt 3TD will make a return. It was one of my favorite modes but it died really early on. You can hardly ever find a match. What I’m really hoping for is an actual classic mode. Not like the one in UC3. And I would like the Co Op Arena modes to go back to being separate I don’t like having to play siege when all I want to do is run the idol with 2 friends.

  • Omfg Add More Like this please.(and More Emotes)

  • Please Naughty Dog, I beg of You:


    This is the mode I played the most with my friends on Uncharted 3, and we hated the changes you made to U4. If you at least do “OBJECTIVE” just like U3, we would be glad.


    • @LuiSpartanMIMIMI Someone always complains about something you don’t like it don’t buy it. UC4 is going to sell regardless of your complaint Lol.

    • @tusunami, Nothing wrong with feedback, in fact more devs need to listen MORE to their core fans… ask the millions of SOCOM fans (me included) that KNOW the reason that Socom failed is because the devs added new things to the competitive multiplayer and at the same time took out a lot of the classic (more competitive/hardcore) stuff.. Nothing wrong with doing new stuff, but dont leave some CLASSIC modes behind, and definitely dont leave them as the “1 classic mode” in your game. I’m hoping 50% of the multiplayer is no mysticals / no radar, oldschool Uncharted.. but yeah that’s me hoping. They at least should have a couple classic barebones modes though, if you go to any uncharted forum (including this), you’ll see people asking for those classic modes.

      (Look at comment #15 below and the response to it for example…)

    • I hope they leave sprinting out. UC4 feels a lot more like UC2 and that’s a good thing after the mess that was UC3. And it felt like ND was not listening to feedback at all. But they seem to have looked over fan feedback this time around. They made it so that the character jogs at a speedy that is somewhere in between UC2 and UC3. Plus they added the rope swing and brought zip lines back so it’s not like getting around is difficult. They even increased the climbing speed for everyone so you don’t need monkey man anymore. I didn’t really care that they took out grenade toss backs either cause I hardly ever used that feature and when I tried to that particular grenade I tried to throw back was non returnable. It didn’t make any sense. Plus there was no better feeling then throwing a well placed grenade and wiping out another player back in UC2.

    • Uc4 is basically the ultimate Uncharted game. How can you hate that?

    • @ LuiSpartanMIMIMI – Just like UC3?…you crazy?…UC3 ruined the MP completely,the best thing ND ever did was to remove sprinting.The changes they made on UC4 were their best choice in years cuz it brought the MP back to something good and enjoyable to play UC style instead of copying other games being a garbage MP like UC3 did.

  • Please co-op mode next announcement, arena and adventure with drive-able vehicles

  • On a brighter note I want to watch this on Twitch since I can’t make this event.

  • My favorite game mode since Uncharted 2! I can’t wait man. I hope it’s better than plunder in Uncharted 3. All those kickbacks and multiple weapons really ruined it for me. Nothing like getting RPGd at the last second.

    • Sadly, from the last screen. Mysticals are allowed in Plunder mode too. :( …wich is similar to kickbacks…and Sidekicks (AIs) will probably be in too…

      Really hoping for “classic/hardcore” versions of the offered modes without those “self-played” things here!! :)

  • Plunder on Uncharted 2 was the absolute best! Had so much fun tossing the treasure up to 2nd floor treasure chests. Can’t wait to play this!.

  • I’m very happy to see this mode return in Uncharted 4! May can’t come soon enough >_<

  • Also, did he just wack that guy dead with the idol!?

  • I hope Naughty Dog is listening to all the requests for more classic modes (and hopefully not just one…), a mode without the radar + without the mysticals.. I love the online but playing a more hardcore playlist is what will keep me and many of my tactical shooter fans playing the online for much longer than most would otherwise. I believe the mysticals make a great team even more unstoppable… same goes for the radar. Please give us some more competitive/hardcore/classic modes that challenge both sides more.

    • For example, in the BETA, a veteran team of Uncharted players and I beat another team 35-0, without losing 1 life (because we kept reviving and using the other powers anytime we were in danger, and because we kept our eyes on that radar). That wouldn’t have been nearly as easy to do if it wasn’t for those assists (the radar and the mysticals).

      Noobs already have an uphill battle to face when they play online games, dont make every mode even tougher and more unbalanced for them to keep up with, and at the same time don’t punish (and give a crutch to) veteran competitive players by not giving them a tougher game mode + more fair mode too. No radar / mystical modes, please!

    • Hmm I’d say I have to agree with you on this one. A hardcore playlist would be pretty sweet and I really hope the MP team over at ND put in something like that.

  • Would be nice if has co op remember uc2 and 3 omg

    • Co-op is always a ton of fun :D I really hope they put that in this game because I’ve always preferred it a lot more than the regular multiplayer.

    • announce co-op already and what about Hi-Fives and Fist Bumps? …i remember Robert Cogburn doing buddy hi-fives in Uncharted 3 update videos

    • U hear the cry for co-op so lets see it already. Only 17 more days.should be epic with all the new mechanics on the ps4.

    • I’m a very casual gamer who might play once or twice a month , so modes like coop are better for me as I’m not at a huge disadvantage against people who play hours a day when we are working together . That plus the teamwork factor seems (to me) a lot stronger than on run and gun type modes where everyone wants to be a lone wolf.

      ‘We’ll have a few people from Naughty Dog at the booth all weekend’ can we get a link to information about PAX East? Like when it is /where it is /how much are tickets to the event? I’ll see if I can go.

  • Look awesome can’t wait. Can anyone tell me if Co op adventure mode going to be in the full game?

  • Not interested in multiplayer, so I wish these modes had bot support… alas, no one supports bots these days.

  • Wish the video would play…choppy for me. :(
    Still looking forward to the game on 5/10.

  • Is there going to be cooperative modes in uncharted 4, like the previous games? The game have any split screen mode?

  • Co-op. Co-op. Co-op Co-op please

  • I love that taunt haha. UNFORTUNATELY i know you guys will be making a crap load of “DLC” that”s nothing but taunts and cosmetic stuff…… ugh. I’m still excited to play this though, just not excited to experience how Uncharted 3 was ruined with that stuff. Well that and the multiplayer wasn’t fun like U2.

  • Really hope it’s Co-op adventure mode next! With full screen split screen, not like on Uncharted 3.

  • Looks amazing, loving the taunts! Can’t wait to get my hands it.
    Please let there be Co op and the chance to play with or without all the mystical stuff.

  • Nice, really looking forward to this!! Need to fire up my Unchartered game face on.

  • Plunder got ruined once they patched it so you can’t throw the idol off with cliff in UC:2. Doesn’t mean I won’t try it out though.

  • “what we will be revealing soon after PAX East will please a lot of people.” Does it mean barebones multiplayer without sidekicks and mysticals, plus CO-OP. That would please me atleast!!!

  • Really. really looking forward to this. Now, if the co-op comes back, I will likely not need another game the rest of the year.

  • Whoa did you guys upgrade the graphics? Multiplayer looks much better in the new screenshots than what I remember from the beta.

    Oh, and please don’t kill Nate or Elena! I have enough sorrow in my life. I don’t need more.

  • Nice to see this,although I knew it was gonna be in the game I’m happy to see it revealed…Plunder was my 2nd most played mode on UC2.And yeah I too can’t wait to see co-op adventure and co-op arena on UC4.
