    Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered on PS4 Pro


    PlayStation Blog

    At Naughty Dog, we strive to make you, the player, feel as though you inhabit the stories, characters, and worlds we create. If we’re doing our job right, every aspect should feel believable and grounded in our fiction and we should elicit the same response in you as the characters are experiencing in the game.

    The key to it all is in details. Whether it’s animation, lighting, performance capture, dialog, or environment design, we spend a lot of time on even the smallest details that, when they all work together, help establish that emotional connection and sense of immersion.

    When we first learned about PS4 Pro, we were excited to see how we could drive new levels of fidelity and immersion in our games. We’re taking our first step by introducing day-one PS4 Pro support for Uncharted 4, The Last of Us Remastered, and The Last of Us: Left Behind. Whether you own a 4K HDR display, normal 4K display, or even just a 1080p display, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of PS4 Pro with our new game updates. Though, once you’ve seen them in 4K HDR, it might be hard to go back to anything else.

    Unprecedented Detail

    It’s easy to think of resolution as simply a measure of clarity, but for games, it’s about more than just a sharp, clean image — it’s about a greater sense of depth and scale. PS4 Pro has allowed us to meaningfully increase the resolution so that you’ll not only appreciate more detail in the textures, but smoother, sharper edges that better distinguish characters, effects, and the environment.

    Terrain, buildings, and plant life that might otherwise blend together really stand out, creating life-like distance. It’s especially evident in the wide, sweeping landscapes of Uncharted 4, as well as the overgrown cities and towns of The Last of Us Remastered. Perhaps equally important, the higher resolution allows us to maintain that fidelity in motion, eliminating the shimmering that you might see on the standard PS4.

    For those with a 4K display, Uncharted 4’s story can be played on PS4 Pro at 1440p resolution, up from 1080p on PS4. Multiplayer’s fluid, high-framerate gameplay remains the same, but the resolution has also been increased to a full 1080p on PS4 Pro, up from 900p on PS4. The Last of Us Remastered, on the other hand, allows you to choose whether you want to play in the game’s original target framerate of 30 frames per second at 2160p or at a high targeted 60 frames per second at 1800p.

    However, those using PS4 Pro with a standard high-definition (1080p) display will also benefit. Uncharted 4 will render at the highest resolution and downscale the super-sampled image to 1080p, resulting in noticeably crisp and smooth graphics. Meanwhile, The Last of Us Remastered will feature high-quality shadows while maintaining a high level of performance.*

    New Worlds of Color

    Combining enhanced resolution with an HDR-capable display will only make the benefits of PS4 Pro more apparent when playing Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered. HDR drastically expands the range of color and brightness in both games, particularly on the lightest and darkest ends of the spectrum.

    Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered use color in distinctive ways and each highlight the numerous benefits of HDR. Whereas Uncharted 4’s exotic locales leverage a brighter, more painterly composition to highlight HDR’s full breadth of colors, nature’s reclamation of towns and cities in The Last of Us Remastered necessitates a more organic and gritty approach that complements HDR’s deeper, richer black tones. Best of all, HDR support is available on the standard PS4, as well as PS4 Pro.

    4K Photo Mode and 1080p Gameplay Clips

    The Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered communities have already been able to produce some awe-inspiring images with our built-in Photo Mode tools on PS4. Now, with the PS4 Pro, we expect to see even more stellar creations as players will be able to capture 4K screenshots using the system’s Share functionality. You can also use the Share button on PS4 Pro to stream at up to 1080p at 60 frames per second, or capture in-game highlights at 1080p at 30 frames per second. We hope you’ll share your Photo Mode shots and best gameplay moments with us using our submission tool on naughtydog.com/ugc!


    We are really proud of the experiences we’ve been able to create for PS4 and now bring to PS4 Pro. We believe that the addition of HDR and 4K technology not only adds a new level of depth, detail, and life to our games, but opens new doors for the future.

    We hope you enjoy Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered on PS4 Pro!

    *This post has been updated to reflect a change with regards to PS4 Pro’s benefits for The Last of Us Remastered running on standard 1080p displays. For more information on the update, visit this link.

    Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters DLC Out Today


    PlayStation Blog

    Since launching our Lost Treasures multiplayer DLC update in June, we’ve been hard at work fine-tuning the multiplayer experience, launching the New Devon bonus map, and developing our next DLC release — the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters DLC, available today via a new update to Uncharted 4.

    With a returning fan-favorite map, new tools to capture and create your own original gameplay videos, an all-new objective game mode, new weapons, and more, Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters DLC is one of the biggest multiplayer DLC updates we’ve ever produced.

    Most importantly, just like Lost Treasures and all future multiplayer DLC updates, Bounty Hunters is free for all players. Here’s a closer look at what’s included.

    Returning Classic Map: Village from Uncharted 2

    That’s right; we’re bringing back Village. Not only is it one of our personal favorites, it’s also one of the most requested maps from the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community.

    Village has been completely rebuilt to take advantage of PS4, including new lighting systems, high-fidelity textures, and more. We’ve also added support for Uncharted 4’s new traversal mechanics — most notably the grappling hook.

    New Mode: Bounty Hunter

    We’ve heard your feedback asking for new modes for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, and today, we’re proud to introduce Bounty Hunter — a new game type that encourages teamwork, strategy, and skill.

    Two teams compete to reach the score limit by collecting Bounties from KO’d players. When you KO a player, they drop a Bounty worth 10 points, which you or your teammates must retrieve before an enemy can swoop in and deny it. Throughout the match, teams will also alternate between having one random player assigned the role of Captain — a high-value target that the opposing team must hunt down within a time limit.

    If the attacking team can successfully KO the enemy’s Captain, they’ll have a chance to collect a huge Bounty worth 60 to 120 points toward their team’s overall score. However, there’s a catch: Captain’s Bounties take time to collect, so players must work together to either protect their teammates as they retrieve the Bounty or fight to deny the attacking team before the clock runs out.

    We love playing this mode at the studio and we hope you enjoy it, too. It inspires some incredibly tense moments and close plays.

    New Weapons, Mystical, and Boosters

    We’ve also introduced a collection of new weapons and boosters, as well as a new Mystical, which can be obtained through DLC Gameplay Chests.

    Using Relics earned through Multiplayer matches and Challenges, DLC Gameplay Chests now have the chance of granting access to any of the four new weapons introduced with the Bounty Hunters DLC, as well as those added with Lost Treasures and as part of the base game. Our latest Mystical, Shield of Asgard, temporarily reduces incoming damage. While it can be helpful in objective modes, it comes at the cost of movement speed.

    Weapons

    • DC Single Action — Semi-Automatic Revolver
    • RKL-155 — Fully Automatic mid Pistol
    • Lowe-S – Assault Rifle
    • Harrison 1890 – Lever Action Rifle
    • US-AN 12 – Automatic Shotgun (Heavy Weapon)

    Boosters

    • Lock ‘n Load — Put ammo from pickups immediately in your clip
    • Undisturbed — Hold a charge melee while rolling and climbing
    • Silent Assassin — Take out the enemy without the other their team knowing
    • Weapons Expert — Aim your weapon while vaulting, falling, jumping

    Mystical

    • Shield of Asgard — Reduces incoming damage for a brief period

    New Feature: Cinema Replay

    As promised in the Multiplayer Roadmap we shared before launch, the Bounty Hunters DLC adds Cinema Replay — a new suite of tools for capturing epic moments in-game and creating your own original videos.

    Building upon the tools players will recognize from previous Uncharted games, Cinema Replay creates archived versions of matches that allow you to go back and relive every moment from any player’s perspective or through a variety of different cameras. Within Cinema Replay, you can pause, slow down, swap perspectives, or line up the perfect shot to create highlight montages, original videos, or perhaps a dance compilation or two.

    Between Cinema Replay and the PS4 ShareFactory app, we can’t wait to see what kind of videos you create.

    New Personalization Items

    As with our last DLC drop, we’ve again introduced an awesome assortment of vanity items to Uncharted 4 Multiplayer that offer new ways to deck out your favorite hero or villain characters, including:

    • More than 40 new Skins and Pre-Sets
    • A wealth of new Hats, Face Wear items, and Taunts

    This time around we have focused on a Wild West and Post-apocalyptic theme. We also introduced a few Pirate themed taunts that are sure to entertain.

    Triple Pack Update

    Multiplayer Pack 2 for the Triple Pack owners will also be available today. All your new items can be found, ready to use, in the customization and loadout menus.

    Multiplayer Pack 2 contains:

    • RKL-155 Pistol
    • Lock and Load Booster
    • Shield of Asgard Mystical
    • Bandit Hat
    • Pistol Spin taunt

    So there you have it, a detailed overview of what’s included with Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters and version 1.13. We hope you enjoy it and continue to share your feedback with us. For all the latest, be sure to follow Naughty Dog on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

    See you online!

    New Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Map Out Today as Free Update


    PlayStation Blog

    It’s been just over a month since we launched Uncharted: 4 Lost Treasures DLC — our first multiplayer DLC update for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, which introduced a new map, new weapons, a new Mystical, our revamped Rank System, and more.

    Since then we’ve been hard at work on our next major multiplayer DLC release and gathering player feedback as we continue to evolve the multiplayer experience. One comment we see and hear the most is “Release more maps!” Rest assured, we’ve heard you loud and clear and today we’re excited to introduce New Devon, an all-new multiplayer map launching today in Uncharted 4 Multiplayer.

     

    Like all of our DLC, New Devon is available for all players as part of a free update. Inspired by the Uncharted 4 campaign, New Devon is set in the lush ruins of an abandoned pirate colony. It’s one of our largest maps to-date and features wide open exteriors with elevated vantages for those who prefer long-range engagements. If you’re more of a run-and-gun player, don’t worry — there’s no shortage of tight corridors for close-quarters combat.

    Alongside the launch of New Devon, we’re also introducing an array of changes and improvements to Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, including new ways to earn Relics and unlock Multiplayer items. Now, in addition to completing Challenges, players can acquire Relics by completing and winning matches. We’ve also added Premium DLC Skins and Pre-Set outfits to DLC Vanity Chests, giving players a chance to unlock Premium vanity items at a reduced Relic cost. This Friday, September 2, we’re also kicking off a sale in the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Store, offering discounts from 33% to 62% on all DLC Relic chests until Friday, September 16.

    For our more competitive players, the 1.12 patch also includes updates to Ranked Team Deathmatch and a new set of rewards for Season 2. We’ve taken the community’s feedback to heart and with these changes, we’re aiming to make the competitive experience more rewarding for solo players. Be sure to swing by the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End website for more details on Ranked Team Deathmatch Season 2 and full list of updates in 1.12.

    As we’ve said before, there’s plenty more to come in Uncharted 4. In September, we’ll be launching our new DLC update, which will add a new map, game-type, personalization items, and more. We’ll be sharing more news about our next DLC drop soon, so keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat pages.

    In the meantime, we hope you enjoy New Devon and we’ll see you online!

    Bringing Uncharted 4’s Dance Taunts to Life


    PlayStation Blog

    Since launching in May, our Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community has been celebrating victories over their enemies with The Pop and Lock, The Robot, The Dab, and a collection of other elaborate dance taunts. As the ultimate expression of your triumph in multiplayer, we knew we had to make them as authentic as possible and fun to watch, which is why we enlisted the help of professional choreographers Matt Steffanina and Dana Alexa. Together, they donned motion capture suits and performed the array of modern and classic dance routines that you can now find in-game. To show you how we brought Matt and Dana’s performances to life in Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, check out this new video that offers behind-the-scenes footage:

     

    In addition to the collection of dance taunts available at launch, on June 28, we released a new DLC update, Uncharted 4 multiplayer: Lost Treasures. As part of the update, we added even more dance taunts, alongside a wealth of other new multiplayer content, including a new map (at no cost!), ranked play system, new character items, and more.

    But the Lost Treasures DLC is just the beginning. We’ll be introducing more new multiplayer content throughout the year and into 2017. For all the latest, keep an eye out for updates on NaughtyDog.com and by following us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.

    Uncharted 4 First Week Sales Surpass 2.7 Million


    PlayStation Blog

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly two weeks since we officially released Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End on PS4. It’s one of the most beautifully crafted games I’ve ever played, and the great reception we’ve seen from the community has been amazing and humbling. Naughty Dog’s exceptionally talented team has created magic once again, carefully constructing an adrenaline-pumping, thrilling, and beautifully written culmination to Nathan Drake’s adventures. They truly outdid themselves.

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, PS4

    Millions of fans around the world have already joined Nathan Drake on his final treasure hunt. In the first week alone, I’m happy to report that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End exceeded 2.7 million units in global sales*. For the North American region, Uncharted 4 is the fastest-selling PS4 first party title to-date.

    A huge congratulations goes out to Naughty Dog for an incredible feat. The success of the game is a testament to the caliber of the team at Naughty Dog and their unwavering commitment to their fans.
    Most of all, we wanted to give a special thank you to all of you who joined us so far on this incredible adventure, and have embarked with us on Nathan Drake’s final, wild ride.

    * Includes worldwide sell-through data for both Blu-ray Disc sell-thru quantities and digital sales as of May 16, 2016.

    Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Guide


    PlayStation Blog

    Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will hit store shelves on May 10. And while we’ve talked a lot about the single-player campaign, many multiplayer details have remained under wraps. That ends today, as we fill you in on what to expect as well as the philosophy behind some of the new directions we took with multiplayer.

    Right off the bat, we want to highlight that all future maps and modes will be included with Uncharted 4 at no additional cost, and all vanity and gameplay in-game store items will be unlockable through gameplay!

    This means that the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community won’t be fragmented by different types of DLC, and that those who are loyal in participating in the community will be rewarded. Our DLC release approach will represent an entirely new direction for Naughty Dog, and we are confident it will have a hugely positive impact and keep the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community thriving.

    It was a long process to determine how all this should work. We went back and forth with how we wanted players to experience this, and we created a few core philosophies.

    Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Philosophy infographic

    Fairness First: We strongly believe that players must be on an even playing field. To do this, we made Relics, a currency that can only be earned through gameplay and will be able to unlock all DLC, present and future. We will be putting future gameplay items ranging from Mysticals to Boosters into DLC Gameplay Chests. Each Chest will contain new gameplay items.

    An Evolving Experience: We intend to keep the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer experience as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Over time, Naughty Dog will release a variety of new maps, modes and gameplay items at no additional cost (including Co-op), that will introduce new rules and play styles.

    DLC Accessible to Everyone: It was our goal from the start to give players the ability to earn DLC items through gameplay. No DLC item is available exclusively using Uncharted Points.

    Unified Community: The idea of delivering our DLC this way was greatly influenced by the goal of having a unified community. Maps and modes will be available to everyone on the same day. This will ensure that all players are kept together and experience new content at the same time.

    We also feel that a unified community happens through engagement. Beyond our engagement with players through social media and our forums, we’ll soon introduce Cinema so that players can review matches and use a tool that will allow them to create custom Uncharted multiplayer footage. This has been a popular tool in previous Uncharted multiplayer games, and we are excited to make it available in the near future.

    How It All Works

    We considered a number of systems for our multiplayer DLC economy and have refined them to keep things as simple as possible. The core component revolves around acquiring Relics.

    Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Economy infographic

    You acquire Relics by either completing daily Challenges or winning matches, and you can spend them on DLC Chests. You will be able to pick between a DLC Vanity Chest or a DLC Gameplay Chest; when you open it, you’ll earn new items. Neither chest type will ever give you a duplicate item.

    Triple Pack

    For those of you who purchased the Triple Pack (also included in the Digital Deluxe Edition), you’ll gain future access to:

    • The first-ever single-player story add-on for the Uncharted series
    • Two multiplayer packs to enhance your multiplayer experience:

    MP Pack #1
    – Long Gun
    – Booster
    – Skin
    – Hat
    – Taunt

    MP Pack #2
    – Pistol
    – Booster
    – Mystical
    – Hat
    – Taunt

    Roadmap

    You will see in our roadmap graphic below that we have full intention of supporting Uncharted 4 Multiplayer for some time, and want to be clear with those intentions. We are going to release quite a bit of content this year, including gameplay items, modes and maps.

    Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Roadmap infographic

    Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Modes at Launch

    We also want to showcase the modes that will be available at launch. We’ve brought back modes from previous Uncharted multiplayer games, while introducing new ideas to others. Any and all of the modes can be incredibly intense.

    Ranked: In Ranked Team Deathmatch, Ranks range from Bronze III to Diamond I. You’ll be awarded points for winning a match, and points will be deducted for losing. When you acquire the necessary number of points, you’ll enter into Qualifiers – which is where things get really interesting. At this point, a player is given the opportunity to increase his or her Rank by winning a certain number of the next few matches. Failing to do so will knock the player out of Qualifiers, and he or she must earn points again for another attempt.

    For example, if you are Rank Bronze I and earn enough points to enter Qualifiers, you must win three of your next five matches to reach Rank Silver III. Failing to win at least three of your next five matches will result in a failure in Qualifiers, and will force you to earn points to try again.

    It’s a system that we think the competitive among you will enjoy as much as we have in the office.

    Command: In this mode, you’ll capture Command Sites for a steady flow of points, or knock out enemy Captains for a large point bonus. Command emphasizes teamwork and a large part of that comes from protecting your Captain.

    There are a number of Command Sites across each map. When your team captures one, your team’s score will increase. Command Sites captured by the enemy team must be neutralized before you can capture them for your side. Command Sites are captured faster when more members of the team are inside them.

    Whichever player contributes the most points to the team’s objective is the Team Captain. The Captain will receive bonuses — cheaper In-Match Store Items, the ability to revive teammates faster, and more health when downed. When a Captain is designated, the Captain starts at Level 1, but as the Captain gains objective points without being KO’ed, the Captain goes up a Level to a max level of three, which increases the effectiveness of the Captain bonuses. However, at higher levels, the Captain is more visible to the enemy:

    Level 1: Enemies see a Captain icon by the Captain’s name
    Level 2: Enemies can always see the Captain on radar
    Level 3: Captains are automatically Marked until they lose Captain status

    Captain status is lost when the Captain is knocked out, which scores the enemy points depending on the level of the Captain. This mode can have some intense comebacks given the large point value a Captain can reach.

    Team Deathmatch: A fight to the end with teammates at your side. The goal is to score a certain number of points to win, with each enemy KO being worth one point.

    Plunder: In Plunder, grab the idol and return it to your treasure chest for one point. You can throw and climb with the Idol.

    Warm Up Playlist: We have made a lot of new gameplay mechanics available, and the Warm Up playlist gives players the opportunity to explore them. You will only be able to play in this playlist for a certain number of matches, to help you understand the multiplayer mechanics before joining the fight.

    Trials: Set up as pseudo competitive matches, players go up against enemy NPC opponents with the goal of getting a high score using specific multiplayer mechanics. Each of the 10 Trials will include different levels of difficulty and will award Relics for completion.

    Well, that was a lot to cover! I’m sure a number of you will have questions, please ask them below in the comments. We at Naughty Dog, and the MP team in particular, are really excited to finally share all this information with you. The direction we’re taking in Uncharted 4 Multiplayer is going to be a fast and fun ride – we hope you’ll join us!

  • We have some unfortunate news to report that a number of copies of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End were stolen while in transit. While we are continuing to work with the police to resolve the matter — which is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation — it appears that a few copies of the game have surfaced in the UK.

    We know that very many of you have been looking forward with great anticipation and excitement to the latest masterpiece from Naughty Dog. From what I have played of Nathan Drake’s latest adventure, I can tell you that it is very much worth the wait. As with most Naughty Dog games, the unfolding story is such an integral part of the experience and for this reason we wanted to warn you to beware of the potential for spoilers to be posted by people with access to stolen copies of the game.

    An extremely talented team has worked long and hard to bring Nathan Drake’s greatest adventure to life and we would urge you to help us prevent this from being spoiled by not purchasing copies of the game ahead of the launch date. Please rest assured we will be very vigilant to protect you from this as far as we can so you can enjoy Uncharted 4’s experience to its fullest on May 10.

    One Last Time: The Final Uncharted 4 Trailer


    PlayStation Blog

    Just think: in a mere two weeks’ time, we’ll all be playing Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Naughty Dog has described Nathan Drake’s next adventure as his last — I sure hope it’s not! But just in case it is, let’s take one more look at what’s in store with the final trailer.

     

    I adore Naughty Dog. Ever since they transformed game storytelling with The Last of Us, I believe they are the most vital game studio operating in the world today. What’s their secret? Look past the virtuoso art direction, put aside the spectacular action set pieces, and you’ll find characters driven by motivations we can all understand: loyalty, greed, sacrifice, revenge.

    The secret sounds so simple, so elementary. But folks — making these vulnerable characters live and breathe so convincingly amidst a mammoth, white-knuckle epic is an extraordinary accomplishment.

    With The Last of Us, I argued that Naughty Dog had created the game of the generation. With Uncharted 4, let’s see where they go next.

    Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection – Out October 9th on PS4


    PlayStation Blog

    You’ve asked for it and we listened. Today we finally get to announce that Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception are being released for the PS4 in the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, available October 9, 2015!

    Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4

    Since the launch of the PS4, we’ve seen plenty of requests across our Twitter, Facebook, and message boards all over the internet to provide remastered releases for the first three games in the Uncharted series, which sold an amazing 21+ million copies and garnered an average 92 Metacritic rating. We couldn’t agree more. What better way to prepare for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End than to revisit – or play for the first time – the first three games that launched the fortune hunting icon that is Nathan Drake?

    Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4

    Early last month, Eric and I took a trip to Austin on the down low to visit the incredible team at Bluepoint Games to check out Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection in person and get ready for this announcement. What we’ve seen of the game so far looks fantastic!

    The team at Bluepoint Games is incomparable regarding their portfolio of ports and remastered releases, and we’ve been working closely with them to bring over our engine to make Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection an exemplary game. That means not only delivering the single-player campaigns of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in 1080p and 60fps with better lighting, textures, and models, but also adding a range of improvements and additions across all three games including Photo Mode and new trophies. We put together the list of these improvements and additions based on countless forum posts, messages, Tweets, and even through personal conversations we’ve had with a number of you over the years. More on these specifics in future updates.

    By pre-ordering Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection today, you can receive the Nathan Drake Pack which includes single player skins of iconic Drake outfits as well as everyone’s favorite weapons: the Golden AK-47 and Golden 92FS guns. If you pre-order the digital download via the PlayStation Store, you will also get an Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection PS4 dynamic theme as an immediate download.

    Pre-order The Nathan Drake Collection

    Oh, and one other important note, buying the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection grants you exclusive access to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer Beta version (while the Beta is available, of course.)

    With the release a scant four months away, we’re looking forward to getting you ready for Drake’s next adventure with the remastered versions of these first three Uncharted titles. With luck we’ll be able to put together some opportunities for our fans to see and play parts of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection prior to its release. We’ll keep you posted here in the upcoming months.
