While one of the last major updates to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End fixed a ranked multiplayer issue involving some player progress from the previous season continually resetting, this time around, Naughty Dog is set to provide a patch to the game mode in the action-adventure title that will bring about a lot of new materials, including assets from the forthcoming spin-off The Lost Legacy. In order to show fans what’s coming to the fourth entry in the franchise’s multiplayer, the developer has released a brand new trailer detailing the update’s wares.
As seen below in Naughty Dog’s trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, players should expect to receive the update on August 22, 2017, which happens to be the same day that The Lost Legacy launches, and it will include new multiplayer skins for Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, as well as the new villain Asav as a playable character. Not to mention, the update will also add a new mode titled Survival Arena that incorporates over 100 new waves of new enemy types, new Siege zones, a new wave modifier, along with the chance to unlock new Savage Starlight Skeleton skins.
For those unaware, the update for Uncharted 4 will also be available to those who buy Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, as the new game includes the full multiplayer suite of the original, with players of both games being able to fight together on the same servers. So while the forthcoming title won’t feature Nathan Drake per se, he can at least be reunited with Chloe and Nadine in a way through the title’s multiplayer format.
All things considered, it will be interesting to see whether or not the addition of some of The Lost Legacy‘s elements in Uncharted 4 will spur owners of the Nathan Drake-centric title into purchasing the game with Chloe and Nadine as the lead characters. Of course, there will surely be a lot of fans who don’t need additional incentive to buy Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, as the length of the main portion of gameplay could offer plenty to do within its own rights.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is available now for PlayStation 4, while Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is set to launch on August 22, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
