Our first major post-launch update, patch 1.08, launches today and includes our first MP DLC drop, a Level system and an entirely new Rank system with special rewards. Yes, this is a big update (patch 1.08 is just over 1.3GB in size).
Sunken Ruins Map
You can now purchase DLC Gameplay Chests with Relics. These unique Chests will grant you all the new gameplay DLC items, including the new P90 Long Gun or the incredibly exciting Path of Indra Mystical that allows you to teleport your teammates. You will never get duplicates of any item you have already unlocked through our DLC Gameplay Chests.
The full list of new gameplay items is:
Some of the new items (there is a new skin for each character for example) present certain characters in in some fantastic Pirate and Military themes - who doesn't want to play as Pirate Sullivan or Military Lazarevic? Our Character team put in a ton of time and love working on all these new Skins and it shows.
One of the most significant pieces of feedback we've received was that Uncharted 4 Multiplayer did not release with a Level System. We're glad to say that we are addressing this in 1.08, which introduces a system that many of you will be familiar with. Our Level System features 70 levels, with each level awarding you with items ranging from Relics to Chests. Every 5 levels you will earn a vanity item that cannot be attained through any other method. They are unique and a great way to show off your veteran status. They are quite mystical, actually... You will level up by earning XP which comes from three sources: completing matches, earning score, and earning medals. We have also introduced a wide variety of new medals into Team Deathmatch and Ranked Team Deathmatch. Ranked Team Deathmatch
The Multiplayer team at Naughty Dog is extremely competitive and this is a big reason we did a full revamp for Ranked Team Deathmatch Mode, which is also included in 1.08.
Ranked Team Deathmatch will now be occurring over the course of Seasons. Season One will last 60 days, ending on August 20, 2016. When the Season is over, we'll take a short break before the next Season starts to allow us time to make and implement any changes and updates.
As you reach Gold, Platinum or Diamond, you will be awarded with a vanity item. These vanity items will be available for Ranked Team Deathmatch for the Season, so if you do not reach the needed Rank for a reward, you may never be able to get that reward again. We have also made Rank a much easier system to understand in how points are awarded/taken, removed the restrictions for parties, and introduced a forfeit option. This patch will also introduce an entirely new goal for the highly competitive players among you - Master Rank.
I highly suggest you visit our Ranked Team Deathmatch details page for some more insight into how this mode works - we think it's awesome and everyone should be playing it!
Triple Pack Update
For those of you who purchased the Triple Pack, Multiplayer Pack 1 of the Triple Pack is available today. Your items can be found unlocked in the customization and loadout menus.
The Triple Pack contains:
We will continue to hand pick content for inclusion in the Triple Pack for those who have already purchased it or those who purchase the Digital Deluxe version. The Triple Pack was a great launch offering, but we'll soon be offering the Explorer's Pack which includes the much anticipated single-player DLC and 3,200 Uncharted Points. This will provide players with even greater choice on which items they prefer to own. You'll start seeing this roll out in the coming weeks.
In addition to all the above updates, we have made a number of more minor improvements that work together to make Uncharted 4 Multiplayer even better. Check out the full details for 1.08 on our Patch Notes pages.
· The ability for a player to accumulate an offline Relic bonus; log back in and play games to pull Relics from your offline bonus
Most of these improvements will have a deep impact in how Uncharted 4 Multiplayer plays and we are looking forward to hearing your feedback. We will continue to make updates to deliver the best Uncharted Multiplayer experience possible.
Don't forgot to join us on our next Twitch broadcast later this week as we do a rundown of Ranked Team Deathmatch and answer your questions to any and all of the new content that was released as part of patch 1.08. We'll be broadcasting on our Twitch channel at 11:30 AM PT / 20:30 CET on Thursday, June 30.
