Earlier this year Naughty Dog released the final chapter to the excellent Uncharted series, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. If you’re like me you’ve come to not only expect a solid single player experience but also a well rounded and fun multiplayer game from the Indiana Jones inspired franchise. Shortly before the release of the game back in May, developer Naughty Dog unveiled its “Multiplayer Roadmap” stating that all future maps and modes will be included at no additional cost. Uncharted 4: Survival marks the beginning of the second phase of this roadmap.
In Survival, players will gain access to a co-op wave-based (horde) mode similar to the arena maps from the previous games. According to the Playstation blog, “To reach wave 50, you’ll need to work your way through objective modes where victory depends on defending a particular area, collecting treasures within a time limit, or taking out marked enemies.” Survival mode also includes modifiers, boss fights, a progression system, new weapons, and various difficulty modes for those of us who are way too good at these games. For those of us who would rather not talk to people on PSN you’re in luck because Survival can be played solo as well as cooperatively.
Uncharted 4: Survival is part 2 of 4 free DLC expansions planned for release throughout the rest of 2016 and into the summer of 2017. This DLC does not require the “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Explorer’s Pack”, which is necessary for the unannounced single player story DLC as well as in-game points and skins.
You can play Uncharted 4: Survival at this upcoming Playstation Experience, December 3-4 at the Uncharted 4: Survival booth. Afterwards, you can walk across the street to Disneyland and ride Indiana Jones and experience what it would be like to be Drake stuck in a jeep in Africa.
Uncharted 4 is available exclusively on the PS4 and the Survival DLC launches sometime this December.
