Uncharted 4’s new Survival mode launches today

Plus, new multiplayer content added, and economy system revamped

Hello everyone! Vinit Agarwal here from Naughty Dog. Today, I’m happy to announce that our next major update to Uncharted 4 launches today, and with it, our new mode: Survival.

Survival is our new cooperative mode where you and up to two of your friends can take on 50 waves of increasingly skilled enemies, a variety of challenging objectives and modifiers, and intense boss battles. Feel like playing solo or not (yet) as a PlayStation Plus member? You can still hop in and play Survival by yourself.

With multiple difficulty levels, its own dedicated progression system, unlockable rewards, and yes, new Trophies, we’re excited for the community to jump in and take on Survival.


If you want an in-depth look at what to expect, don’t miss my post from earlier this month [link] that outlines all of the new features. You can also check out the Survival launch trailer below.

Survival isn’t all you’ll find in our latest patch – we’re also adding a ton of new content for Uncharted 4 multiplayer, including two new maps, five flashback weapons, new vanity items and color variant options, as well as an all-new mode: King of the Hill.

  • New maps: Train Wreck (from Uncharted 2) and Prison
  • Returning classic weapons: M4 Assault Rifle, PAK-80 Light Machine Gun, Micro 9mm Automatic Pistol, and the Desert 5 Pistol (Heavy Weapon)
  • New beta test Playlist Mode: King of the Hill – teams to compete to retain control of a single Hill and earn Victory Points. Respawning restricted when your team controls the Hill
  • New character skins: 48 new character skins, including new Biker-themed skins
  • New colour customisation: Customise any character skin with 25 unique color variants
  • New multiplayer levels and rewards: Max rank increased to Level 90 with two new vanity unlocks
  • New Challenges: Earn Relics with new Challenges for multiplayer and Survival

Uncharted 4: Survival co-op

Alongside all of the new content in the Survival update, we’re also revamping our multiplayer economy. We’ve been listening to your feedback and we’re making changes to the experience to make it more rewarding.

Starting today, we’re permanently reducing the cost of in-game chests, making it easier to unlock new vanity and gameplay items. We’re also introducing Relic Boosters that give you a 300% increase in Relics earned for completing matches and also include a stackable bonus for all other players on your team. Anyone who purchases or has purchased Uncharted Points in the past will also earn VIP Status, which includes a permanent 20% bonus to all Relics earned from Challenges.

Uncharted 4: Survival co-op

Thanks you for all of your continued support and feedback. We look forward to hearing about your experiences in Survival and seeing you online in multiplayer! Until the next time, stay tuned to Naughty Dog’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat pages for updates.

Afraid not mate.

Cheers. Kinda knew it was wishful thinking on my part.
Local multi-player is the red headed child of the games industry.

Been playing it loads. There’s a few minor bugs here and there (as expected with such a huge bunch of changes and additions) but it’s so damn awesome. I love it. This has made my christmas (since I’m not getting to have one). :D

Thank you for all your help.

Już nie moge sie doczekac jak przyjade do domu

30 fps for co-op players (on the SAME maps as competitive) is a HUGE disappointment.

Not only this mode is eight months late, but we get treated as second class customers. Why, Naughty Dog?
