During a behind closed doors presentation following the Paris Games Week conference, Naughty Dog shared quite a lot of details about the multiplayer of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
seems awesome but I do have one question , is the MP in TLOU good ?! I finished the game and the DLC but skipped the MP ..
It's really good.
It is very unique, and a blast. Barring the insanely ridiculous micro transactions that effect balance...
It's my brothers and my favorite multiplayer
It's good if you learn how to play it properly and not be in a team with lone wolves uncooperative team-mates. unfortunately if you don't have a party of friends the matchmaking is really bad. meaning 1 side full of high skilled and 1 side full of low skilled. Mp really is one of the best team play game, when people don't try to play it like cod.
MP is very underrated, I play it everyday. Rank 455 worldwide baby.
I really hope they have a more simplistic competitive play without mystic powers and sidekicks and focus it on teamwork. OT: You should look over your article for mistakes...
I agree. I'm hoping they have this for those who want all out craziness, and an Uncharted 2 like mode for those who simply want skill and teamwork. At least have those 2 modes, and we're all good. And yes Abriael, you typed so fast you made a lot of mistakes.
So I LOVE tlou multiplayer for its teamwork. Would you say uncharted multiplayer (which I've never played) focuses THAT much on teamwork?
In Uncharted 2 the team with the most teamwork often won however you could be a one man army, but the good team would beat the one man army.
I have mixed feelings about the store, boosters, and sidekicks. I don't mind the store offering weapons, as long as they're customization options like Golden Guns, and not something like start the match off with a Grenade Launcher or Rocket Launcher. I don't mind boosters, so long as they're of equal obtainability for everyone, like how Uncharted 2 spawned Rocket Launchers / Grenade Launchers. I don't mind sidekicks as long as they can't be abused. 1 per match, per character is the most I want to see them. If it's tied to kill streaks, then make it a pretty high number so they're skill based. Or tie them to death streaks, when someone on the team just sucks (unfortunately there are those players, and I must say it's one of the worst things to have this happen to your team in a MP match). And overall I won't mind this if they stick with these options, and the only way these things are obtainable is with in-game currency from playing. The problem is I seriously doubt the in-game only currency. The MP looks fun, but if it's P2W I'm out of there Day 1, which is fine with me since I prefer Single-Player and Co-Op in Uncharted anyway, and haven't loved MP since UC2.
Pay to win
Pay 2 Win
Again.. Lots of people are missing this.. the microtransaction items are unlockable within the game.
I said that. And overall I won't mind this if they stick with these options, and the only way these things are obtainable is with in-game currency from playing. But it becomes a problem if you can start paying to unlock these things for regular use in Multiplayer. Having early access by paying is bad enough, but if they can drop cash and bulk up every match, then that's ridiculous and games are almost never set-up to where those who earn their rewards in-game, can match what outright paying can, or else there would be no reason to pay cash to begin with. I'm just hoping for the least possible evil. Greatest Evil: Pay $1 - $10 and get skill boost, start the match with a rocket launcher, multiple sidekick use, etc... each match. Mid Evil: Early access to stronger weapons & boosters, and skill boost like better aiming or aim assist, gain 1 addition Rocket booster... Least Evil aka no one really cares: Customized weapons, Golden Weapons. And based on the previous games I have a feeling it's much closer to the Mid Evil, which opens the game up to Pay 2 Win. If you want to add a store, do it a month or more after launch where it doesn't affect the Day 1 players.
UC4 visuals look phenomenal in MP Mode! Those effects, and smooth animations are just heavenly. Love the banter between the characters and there are many returning characters. Seriously, UC4 MP could be even bigger & even more popular than UC2. I get why UC4 MP is being downplayed on N4G ...Probably because UC4 MP runs @900p/60fps and manages to not look like a last gen game ... lol /
If they could do Campaign in 60fps by dropping to 900p, i wouldn't mind an option for it. Like in option menus, 60fps 900p or 30fps 1080p.
Instead of listening to fan feedback and actually making it more like U2, they instead make it more like U3. Sorry, but I will NOT be buying Uncharted 4 day one. I'll probably pick it up when it's like twenty bucks.
Dude, there are PLENTY of uncharted fans who are fans of UC3 mp. Stop acting like UC2 mp lovers are the only fans that matter. I even believe they have an UC2 mode for players just like you so calm the f down already. Hate when supposed gamers want each sequel to be the exact copy and paste. Call of duty did it for YEARS and got bashed for it constantly, AC does and gets bashed, but it's ok for ND to do so? I'd rather they try something new and fail then stick to the same ole same for a handful of "fans" that are too afraid to learn a new system because the old system worked for them. It's Naughty Dog, I think they know what they are doing and more importantly how THEY want to do it.
UC2 came out in 2009, why are you comparing it to CoD and AC? Wanting UC to be more like it's 6 year old predecessor is like yearly releases now?
Actually there was a bigger install base of players on U2 then there was on U3. U2 MP lasted years while, U3 died in a few months. How about you stop defending mediocrity. Oh what I'm saying the generation of gamers actually prefer playing unbalanced trash that's like CoD. Funny that you mention CoD in this instance because U4 MP is the exact thing you're getting, CoD garbage. Mini-maps, stupid overpowered perks, let's not forget the micro-transactions that will obviously make the game unbalanced even more. So please spare me your BS.
Alright that's great Enjoying doing that while the rest enjoy this masterpiece.
Sorry, I'm not a sheep I don't have to purchase games day one to feel some sense of enjoyment that i'm playing a game at the same time everyone else is. I will however enjoy keeping 60 bucks in my pocket.
Died in a few months? That's why I'm able to join full matches today with zero issues? I truly hate people like you who imply they are the ruling majority and just pull bs outta their ass to try and make some invalid point. How about you stop spouting bs like you are some self appointed know it all? How about this, keep your little 60 bucks and stop crying all over the internet over a game you're not going to get. This should be the last time you comment on a game you have ZERO interest in right?
I'll comment however and whenever and if you don't like it? Too bad, get over it and accept it.
