Uncharted 4 Plunder Mode Unveiled
Naughty Dog revealed a new multiplayer mode for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and it will be playable at PAX East this weekend.
Plunder mode first debuted in Uncharted 2 and it was available on Uncharted 3. 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 Uncharted 4, the development team has added new features. “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,” said lead game designer, Robert Cogburn.
Naughty Dog claims that they have so much more to share about multiplayer, more will be revealed after PAX East.
