You may be familiar with 3D audio from PS VR games, which makes game effects sound like they’re coming from all directions, including above and below. The Platinum Wireless Headset brings that same 3D audio to compatible PS4 games, making for incredibly immersive experiences. 3D positional audio can also give you a competitive edge, allowing you to pinpoint the exact location of enemies, even when they’re not in sight, thanks to the use of games positional information.

At launch, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will support the headset’s 3D audio mode through a patch. A variety of upcoming games will also support 3D Audio including MLB The Show 17, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Days Gone.

The team at Naughty Dog was excited to take advantage of this new technology to make Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sound better than ever. Check out the video below to hear more about how 3D audio brings new life to Nathan Drake’s adventures.

Whether you’re immersing yourself in 3D audio, enhanced 7.1 virtual surround sound, or experimenting with bespoke audio arrangements via the Headset Companion App, we’ve worked hard to make this our best sounding headset to date.
