Uncharted 4's future multiplayer maps and modes will all be free


Nice moves, Naughty Dog

It's not a new trend, but it's a good one. Xbox's flagship property did it last year in Halo 5, and now PlayStation's biggest name is doing the same in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Over the course of Uncharted 4's lifetime, all added multiplayer maps and modes will be free for players.

Naughty Dog announced the news via the PlayStation Blog. Lead game designer Robert Cogburn writes that this means the "multiplayer community won't be fragmented by different types of DLC." Everyone will have access to the major features without any additional cost.

Where the developer makes room for monetization is with the cosmetic and gameplay items. Uncharted 4 implements a "relic" system of currency. Relics can be earned through play and then spent on chests that award random items. This method is entirely free. Alternatively, players can spend real money on "Uncharted Points" and buy these items straight away.

When Uncharted 4 launches, the included multiplayer modes will be ranked, command, team deathmatch, plunder, a warm-up playlist, and trials. Over the course of a year, Naughty Dog will slowly add to that. A roadmap was published that gives a rough timetable for many of these features. The actual game is still a week away from launching, but we already have a good idea what to expect a year from now.
