Everything you need to know about one of the biggest multiplayer DLC updates Naughty Dog has ever released
Since launching our Lost Treasures multiplayer DLC update in June, we’ve been hard at work fine-tuning the multiplayer experience, launching the New Devon bonus map, and developing our next DLC release: Bounty Hunters, which is now available via a new update to Uncharted 4.
With a returning fan-favorite map, new tools to capture and create your own original gameplay videos, an all-new objective game mode, new weapons, and more, Bounty Hunters is one of the biggest multiplayer DLC updates we’ve ever produced.
Most importantly, just like Lost Treasures and all future multiplayer DLC updates, Bounty Hunters is free for all players–all you have to do is install the latest patch (version 1.13) and you’re good to go. Here’s a closer look at what’s included:
Returning Classic Map: Village from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
That’s right; we’re bringing back Village. Not only is it one of our personal favorites, it’s also one of the most requested maps from the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community.
Village has been completely rebuilt to take advantage of the PlayStation 4, including new lighting systems, high-fidelity textures, and more. We’ve also added support for Uncharted 4’s new traversal mechanics—most notably the grappling hook.
New Mode: Bounty Hunter
We’ve heard your feedback asking for new modes for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, and today, we’re proud to introduce Bounty Hunter—a new gametype that encourages teamwork, strategy, and skill. Two teams compete to reach the score limit by collecting Bounties from KO’d players.
When you KO a player, they drop a Bounty worth 10 points, which you or your teammates must retrieve before an enemy can swoop in and deny it. Throughout the match, teams will also alternate between having one random player assigned the role of Captain—a high-value target that the opposing team must hunt down and within a time limit.
If the attacking team can successfully KO the enemy’s Captain, they’ll have a chance to collect a huge Bounty worth 60 to 120 points toward their team’s overall score. However, there’s a catch: Captain’s Bounties take time to collect, so players must work together to either protect their teammates as they retrieve the Bounty or fight to deny the attacking team before the clock runs out.
We love playing this mode at the studio and we hope you enjoy it, too. It inspires some incredibly tense moments and close plays.
New Weapons, Mystical, and Boosters
We’ve also introduced a collection of new weapons and boosters, as well as a new Mystical, which can be obtained through DLC Gameplay Chests.
Using Relics earned through Multiplayer matches and Challenges, DLC Gameplay Chests now have the chance of granting access to any of the four new weapons introduced with Bounty Hunters, as well as those added with Lost Treasures and as part of the base game.
Our latest Mystical, Shield of Asgard, temporarily reduces incoming damage. While it can be helpful in objective modes, it comes at the cost of movement speed.
- DC Single Action – Semi-Automatic Revolver
- RKL-155 – Fully Automatic mid Pistol
- Lowe-S – Assault Rifle
- Harrison 1890 – Lever Action Rifle
- US-AN 12 – Automatic Shotgun (Heavy Weapon)
- Lock ‘n Load – Put ammo from pickups immediately in your clip
- Undisturbed – Hold a charge melee while rolling and climbing
- Silent Assassin – Take out the enemy without the other their team knowing
- Weapons Expert – Aim your weapon while vaulting, falling, jumping Mystical
- Shield of Asgard - Reduces incoming damage for a brief period
New Feature: Cinema Replay
As promised in the Multiplayer Roadmap we shared before launch, Bounty Hunters adds Cinema Replay—a new suite of tools for capturing epic moments in-game and creating your own original videos.
Building upon the tools players will recognize from previous Uncharted games, Cinema Replay creates archived versions of matches that allow you to go back and relive every moment from any player’s perspective or through a variety of different cameras.
Within Cinema Replay, you can pause, slow down, swap perspectives, or line up the perfect shot to create highlight montages, original videos, or perhaps a dance compilation or two.
Between Cinema Replay and the PlayStation 4’s ShareFactory app, we can’t wait to see what kind of videos you create.
New Personalization Items
As with our last DLC drop, we have again introduced an awesome assortment of vanity items to Uncharted 4 Multiplayer that offer new ways to deck out your favorite hero or villain characters, including:
- Over 40 new Skins and Pre-Sets
- A wealth of new Hats, Face Wear items, and Taunt
- This time around we have focused on a Wild West and Post-apocalyptic theme. We also introduced a few Pirate themed taunts that are sure to entertain.
Triple Pack Update
Multiplayer Pack 2 for the Triple Pack owners will also be available today. All your new items can be found, ready to use, in the customization and loadout menus.
Multiplayer Pack 2 contains:
- RKL-155 Pistol
- Lock and Load Booster
- Shield of Asgard Mystical
- Bandit Hat
- Pistol Spin taunt
So there you have it, a detailed overview of what’s included with Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters and version 1.13. We hope you enjoy it and continue to share your feedback with us.
