New Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Map Out as Free Update

What’s Up PlayStation Nation!

It’s no secret that Uncharted 4 has been a breakout success with it’s release. And has become a pivotal and a force not to be reckoned with in terms of the PlayStation brand. Along side being known for it’s strong story. The MP is known to be fun when the general flow of the Multiplayer half of the game isn’t tinkered with too badly. With that being said Naughty dog is seeking to maintain the balance of a fun and fast paced multiplayer experience with it’s latest patch which just so happens to be free for all owners of the Uncharted 4 game.

As reported via the Uncharted.com website here are the latest changes to be implemented below:

New ranked rewards added:
• Gold / Platinum / Diamond / Master Bandanas

Individual performance has a bigger effect:
• Top Performer bonus replaced with Performance Grade for all players
• The amount of bonus points is based on your performance in the match compared to the average in your rank
• A strong performance can almost fully offset the points lost from a loss in most ranks

Party members share performance of the party:
• Performance of all players in the party is averaged to determine the bonus Rank Points that the whole party receives

Faster ranking up:
• Requirements to advance to qualifiers were reduced (Previously some ranks required >100 Rank Points, now all require 100 except Apprentice, which is 50)

Easier to pass qualifiers:
• Previously passing required winning best 2 out of 3 matches, now requires 1 out of 3 (Bronze), or 2 out of 5 (Silver).

Easier to get back into qualifiers:
• Failing qualifiers now sets you back to 90% of the previous rank (was 60 – 90%), so winning your next game will loop directly back into qualifiers

Other changes:
• Max rank achieved through initial placement matches is now Gold III (was Silver III)
• Ties no longer award Rank Points to either team


Maps:
• New Devon
