Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is going to be released in the very near future. Studios often confirm downloadable content for new games ahead of their release and usually they charge for the best bits. Naughty Dog is going in a slightly different direction. It has confirmed that all Uncharted 4 multiplayer modes and maps will be released for free.
Naughty Dog also confirmed in the blog post that all vanity and gameplay in-game store items will be unlockable through gameplay. By doing this the studio is ensuring that the multiplayer community for Uncharted 4 isn’t fragmented by different types of DLC and those who are loyal in participating will be rewarded.
The studio says that this DLC release approach represents an entirely new direction for Naughty Dog but it’s confident that this is going to have a positive impact and keep the Uncharted 4 multiplayer community thriving.
Multiplayer maps and modes for this title will be released simultaneously and Relics, the in-game currency, can’t be bought using real money. New content for this game will arrive in seasonal expansions through spring 2017 and most maps and modes will be released by fall 2016.
Naughty Dog goes into further detail in the blog post on how the entire multiplayer experience was crafted and how it’s going to function in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
