"He was also Lead MP Designer for U3."

I didn't like Uncharted 3 mp at all. I was hoping it would go back to what Uncharted 2 was. Oh well.

Alexious1042d ago

Didn't play a lot of it but I've heard the coop mode was great though.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

Uncharted 2 had great mp. Uncharted 3 didn't. All the perks and boosters killed it. Also the level designs was worse than Uncharted 2 IMO.

CaptainPunch1042d ago

I think Bungie helped Naughty Dog with Uncharted 2's multiplayer, need a source on that to be sure. I spent hours in UC2's multiplayer, loved the simplicity of it.

Aratax1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

I've spent so much time on Uncharted 2's mp and looking back on it, It's probably where I've had the most fun last gen. I couldn't get into Uncharted 3's mp at all, It felt like there was just something off about it.

KingKelloggTheWH1042d ago

I actually preferred 3's, but was hoping for 2's because everyone else wanted it back. Hopefully it plays like its own thing as Uncharted 4 has So many new features to the gameplay.

ManOfTheYear11042d ago

None of the Uncharted MP's were any good. I am still surprised people even talk about the multiplayer.

The only part of the Uncharted series that is any good is the single player campaign's....and going by the last gameplay demo...they have pretty much copied and pasted Lara's pick axe leap.

I hope Uncharted brings more in the next gen then Gears and Tomb Raider knock offs...

fayz1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

agreed, uc3 mp was terrible, uc2 mp had potential but it was no where near as good as gears of war


Why are you guys comparing Uncharted and Gears of War? Those games are not even on the same genre! Just because 2 games use third person shooter mechanics, doesn't automatically means they are both shooter games. If it was, we could as well compare Uncharted and Gears to Ratchet and Mass Effect.

Not really it's the guy who did Uncharted 3

Who knows he *could* have been the guy who suggested all those horrible multiplayer changes for the game which made it into a third person COD clone gameplay wise.

The game should just have boosters and your starting weapons, the good old AK-47 and the Pistol.

If every bloody weapon on the map was randomly generated them it would make things fair instead of people rushing to the rocket launcher or shotgun at the start of the game.

No Loadouts

No paid boosters

Definitely no weapon mods

No upgradable boosters

No kickbacks

Even sprinting seemed out of place...can't do it in the single player, why now.

Then you had the map just wasn't balanced like Uncharted 2s maps. It always resulted in one team having the advantage

Seriously if people want that kind of shit go play every bloody multiplayer out there. Uncharted 2 was loved because it was simple but different

You could still get away with all the unlockables being weapon parts for customization or hats, shirts, new characters instead of unlocking new weapon mods and silly kickbacks

I love NaughtyDog but they have a small flaw where they don't seem to listen to the things people actually want multiplayer wise. Remember the Summer Beta of Uncharted 3 to the Subway one, the things we wanted changed didn't yet the things which were fine they tampered with.

Damn....guess the multiplayer with be Uncharted 3 after all :(

kaiserfranz1042d ago

Well, Uncharted 3 was rushed though while this one will have the biggest development time in the franchise by release time. Hopefully they'll be able to polish all modes accordingly.

MyDietEqualsGames1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

God Tier Team is working on UC4. I am hoping this makes a difference, cause UC2 MP was erect, stone-cold tits.

Something relevant.

Crimzon1042d ago

I'm more concerned about pay to win problems and an overabundance of DLC.

Go look in the PlayStation Store at how much multiplayer DLC there is for The Last of Us, there's about 140 pieces of DLC!! Some of it is pay to win nonsense with special weapons and abilities for people who cough up the cash, which is really disheartening to see and makes me worry about the multiplayer component of Uncharted 4.

They already went crazy with DLC for Uncharted 3 (and let's not forget the Season Pass controversy at the time) and then kicked it up to absurd levels with The Last of Us. I found it strange so many people here on N4G complained about the DLC in Evolve when TLOU was just as bad, if not worse (at least Evolve gives maps away for free).

I desperately want Uncharted 4 multiplayer to be great because I loved playing Uncharted 2 & 3 online (not just competitively either, the co-op was great) but I'm really worried with the route Naughty Dog is taking with their obnoxious DLC practices.

The worst thing about it is that no matter how bad it gets, there will always be an army of people defending them as well. I just don't want any pay to win DLC nonsense in a $60 retail game.

Aloy-Boyfriend1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )


I understand your concerns, but Naughty Dog work as a team. This guy by now might have read all our opinions about U3. It wasn't that bad, but it wasn't U2 that's for sure. I hope they take influences from TLOU and make the MP simple and unique. One thing that affected U3 is that ND tried to compete againts COD. This mistake won't happend again, not with the Creators of the critically acclaimed TLOU. let's wait and see.


I don't like how Naughty Dog has milked DLC with TLOU lately, but at least they gave us a complete product at launch. They also gave us all content from the PS3 version for $60 bucks and some free maps. Those microtransactions came months after the game launched. It's still wrong, but it's not the same case as Evolve. I hope they stop doing that already too.

Ugh hopefully it's nothing similar to Uncharted 3.

krypt19831042d ago

Hopefully it is something similar to tlou or don't waste your time at all, the uncharted multiplayer components have all been garbage and player base always fall off quick. Sony just ain't good in the online department period in any game they make that's why my playstation is my single player machine..

Brazz1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

that's your opinion "period"

Playstation has always given me great multiplayer experience with several of its exclusives, and lot's of different genres of games like:

Dragon's crown, Demon's Souls, Kilzone 2, Uncharted 2-3, little big planet, Guilty gears XRD, Resistance, Dc universe, all games that gave me tons of multiplayer fun.

the time at which the Xbox could beat their chests and say that it was infinitely superior to the Playstation in multiplayer has passed, both consoles are equally good in multiplayer today.

Alexious1042d ago

That's kind of an exaggeration right there.

DragoonsScaleLegends1042d ago

My biggest problem was the latency in the controls made even worse because it was 30fps. I usually over correct in 30fps multiplayer shooters unless I put a ass load of time into really getting good at it but of course the Uncharted multiplayer games were never worth the time. I loved TLoS multiplayer though. So I hope they can make it at least 60fps in multiplayer since it seems they are going to make the singleplayer 30fps so they can push the graphics higher.

4theplayers1042d ago

Keep Calm: Neil is the director.

MyDietEqualsGames1042d ago

Druckman is going to force me out of the game!

PrinceOfAllSaiyans1042d ago

Who plays Uncharted for the multiplayer ?

nowitzki20041042d ago

I LOVE UC. But I could care less about its MP. Opposite of BF

Crimzon1042d ago

I mainly play Uncharted for the multiplayer.

Gran Touring1042d ago

I played the heck out of Uncharted 2's multiplayer

BitbyDeath1042d ago

Hopefully they learnt from Uncharted 3 that Uncharted 2 MP was leagues better.

DevilishSix1042d ago

You think the lead on the mp for UC3 who is in charge of mp on UC4 has learned a lesson? IF anything seems a good bet UC4 will be more like UC3 with the same fella at the helm.

Alexious1042d ago

Well it doesn't necessarily mean it will be identical, either.
