Robert Cogburn, who already spoke excitedly about Uncharted 4, has been confirmed to be filling the role of Lead Multiplayer designer. He was also Lead MP Designer for U3.
"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.
Didn't play a lot of it but I've heard the coop mode was great though.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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 design...it 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 :(
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.
God Tier Team is working on UC4. I am hoping this makes a difference, cause UC2 MP was erect, stone-cold tits. Something relevant. https://www.linkedin.com/pu...
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.
@FOx 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. @Crimson 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.
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..
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.
That's kind of an exaggeration right there.
Xbox fanboy confirmed...
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.
Keep Calm: Neil is the director.
Druckman is going to force me out of the game!
Who plays Uncharted for the multiplayer ?
I LOVE UC. But I could care less about its MP. Opposite of BF
I mainly play Uncharted for the multiplayer.
I played the heck out of Uncharted 2's multiplayer
I did, after finishing the SP.
Hopefully they learnt from Uncharted 3 that Uncharted 2 MP was leagues better.
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.
I did say hopefully :-p
Well it doesn't necessarily mean it will be identical, either.
Some where in the world Amy Hennig is Laughing her A$$ off..Creative differences!!! Wake up ND/Sony get her back asap
Nah, she did Uncharted 3. That was no Uncharted or Uncharted 2. Bruce and Neil know how to make games.
One guess who wrote UC1,2 and 3 One Guess.. Hint: Person 1st name starts with an A
Neil and Bruce were also involved though so hard to tell overall but they did go on to make Last of Us while she did U3.
Neil Druckmann also wrote Uncharted 1 and 2 as well. Do some research first.
Amy was the head person NO research needed.. Not sure bout you guys but im tired of these underwhelming AAA exclusives that Sony has released and i wont let ass kissers ruin my gaming xp on ps4 cause they defend Sony 2death when they need 2b held accountable im getting sh!t on by Sony bc of these ass kissers who allow Sony to do it.Grow some ballz,stand up b4 it gets worse!!! Since Launch.Knack(horrible), KZ(mediocore), DC(worst racing game ever on PS but its pretty) Sony where is the FREE ps+ version you PROMISED, The order(liked the story gameplay avg at best), #Holdsonyaccountable
You said that like you are a close friend to Amy Hennig. Ok than, i just want to ask this to you: What is she doing this whole time in EA? Where the hell her game(s)? Why she didn't show it off like Neil and Bruce did with UC4 at PSX? Will it be as good as The Last of Us and achieved tons of awards? And say this to her: EA is a shitty company. She better find a new company asap before they fired her like they did with Maxis and many company under their wings.
Please make it more like uncharted 2
I hope MP isnt why the game is being delayed. That would be disappointing. Obviously time, money and effort are going into the MP so it stands to reason it makes the whole game take longer to make. Theres only so many man hours to go around. Uncharted is a single player game first, MP second. I wouldnt care if they released the game this year and included the code for the MP and then let you download the it next year.
Damn it, where's the TLOU's mp guy. He did a fantastic jop.
He's also on the UC4 MP Team.
He is not the lead so he doesn't have the final say and I believe most fans of ND games would agree that TLOU mp was better than any of the UC mp games. So its a disappointment.
Please no kickbacks. If Im whopping that tail I don't want you to be given perks to help you catch up. Hold this L!
For me its disappointing as I was hoping the lead on the MP design for TLOU was lead on UC4 mp oh well. Should be good but not what I was hoping for.
I think the fact that Naughty Dog made corrections to their multiplayer formula with The Last of Us shows they understood their mistakes with Uncharted 3.
Never played the MP, but Im still super pumped for the game, which I hope will have great mp and sp. Shame about the delay...
The SP campaign in 2 and 3 was top notch so if this guys in charge thats good news on that front.
Loved U3's multiplayer, both PvP and Coop felt fresh, if a bit contrived. It was still fun and had it's own ins and outs. Never was quite sure if some of the advanced gameplay tactics weren't just depth-inducing bugs but they were still cool. Here's hoping they evolve the formula a bit in U4, though. I really did enjoy the co-op maps in U3 so I hope the coop gets proper attention in the new game too.
