Can we get a slow clap for Naughty Dog? They’ve lied out their plans for DLC, and it’s not bad. Naughty Dog took to the Official PlayStation Blog to announce that all future maps and game modes will be free in Uncharted 4’s multiplayer. They stated their reasoning for this is because they didn’t want to fragment their fan base by locking their future content behind a pay wall.
Below is everything you need to know about the games DLC plans. But just in case, you don’t have time to read it all I’ll summarize it for you. What I got from this is they’re taking a similar approach to DLC as the way Street Fighter V is. You have the option to purchase things, but everything can be earned from just playing the game. Also most the stuff is just skins and taunts. I only see two guns on their list.
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.
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.
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
MP Pack #2
