Uncharted 4 has been having a pretty good year so far, and it seems like that streak's going to continue. In a post on PlayStation Blog, developer Naughty Dog announced that Uncharted 4 would be getting a new game mode in the new update set to hit on March 17th.
Along with new weapons and vanity items, the game will be getting a new multiplayer mode – this time, King of the Hill. According the the blog, this new mode has a few challenges in store for players, as King of the Hill "tasks two teams with fighting for control of rotating capture points in order to reach the score limit. King of the Hill requires careful coordination and skilled use of Multiplayer's core combat and movement systems.
"However, even if victory seems assured, King of the Hill offers a unique twist — after the score limit has been reached, the losing team has one last chance to make a comeback through what we call the Victory Hill. The leading team must capture the Victory Hill to win, but if the losing team takes it, they get a second chance at glory."
The weapons being added are the INSAS and Type-95 long guns, as well as a scoped Competition Pistol among others.
The new multiplayer mode should give players something new to sink their teeth into between major DLC updates, and it's just in time for the game's one-year anniversary. Seems like things are going just fine for Uncharted in the wake of the news that Co-President Christophe Balestra will be leaving at the start of April.
