Today we wanted to share all the details about how our new Ranked Team Deathmatch mode works.Goals – Competition and Balance
We want Ranked TDM to be the most competitive and balanced way to play Uncharted 4 Multiplayer. We’ve done a lot of work on the ranking system to ensure it accurately reflects players’ skill. Ranked TDM is also the only mode where one-use-boosters are not used, which ensures all players enter the match with the same benefits.
We’ll also be listening to feedback from the community and making adjustments as the game progresses. We’re interested in hearing from you!Starting out – Placement Matches
When you first enter Ranked TDM you’ll have to play 5 placement matches to determine your initial rank:
Once you’ve completed your placement matches you’ll be placed in a Rank based on your performance. There are a total of 5 Ranks (Bronze / Silver / Gold / Platinum / Diamond) with 3 tiers in each Rank.Earning Rank Points
Once you’ve been placed in a rank you can now start earning Rank Points. If you win a match, you’ll earn points. If you lose a match, you’ll lose points. The amount you earn will be based off your overall performance rating compared to the average rating in your Rank (players who have a higher rating than their current Rank will earn more...
1. The performances and the talent. Brilliance like this:
2. The writing.
4. The Halloween Store.
5. The relationship.
6. Water guns.
8. Winston…who is that guy?
9. American Dreams tie-in.
10. Raja’s Arcade – Black Fang vs Angel Knives.
BONUS: The price. You can’t even go see a movie for $9.99. This will experience will stick with you much longer.
That’s our list. What’s yours?
And if you haven’t played yet, download The Last of Us: Left Behind now
We're having a Memorial Day bonus weekend! Just in case you haven't heard of it, in the United States, this weekend is Memorial Day, which lets many of us have a full three-day weekend. We thought this was the perfect time to run our first promotion in Uncharted 4 Multiplayer as a thank you to all our awesome fans who made Uncharted 4 such a successful launch and built a strong MP community.
Starting Friday May 27, for 4 days everyone will see Relic bonuses and a hefty discount on Vanity item bundles.
Enjoy the long weekend (if you have one) and see you online!
Now that patch 1.03 and live update .013 are out, we wanted to take a moment to update everyone with our full patch notes below. We are actively working on getting more fixes for some of the problems you all have encountered in the wild. If you run into something, please report it here: http://feedback.naughtydog.com/forums/363840-uncharted-4
Have fun out there!
Uncharted 4 – PS4 Patch 1.03 Notes
Today you can download The Last of Us: Left Behind – the gripping prequel to The Last of Us – as a stand-alone story chapter on both the PS3 and PS4. The stand-alone release of Left Behind is the perfect entry into this world of survival, loyalty, and love if you haven’t experienced it yet. Here’s a glimpse of that story and some of the critical acclaim it’s received since its initial launch on the PS3 and PS4.
The Last of Us: Left Behind is available now for $9.99 on the PS3 or PS4. It includes a free trial of The Last of Us Factions, the multiplayer mode from the full game. Learn more about everything included here.
If you haven’t played this seminal DLC yet buy it now. If you have, tell a friend who hasn’t or replay it on your preferred livestreaming channel. There’s a lot left to share with your friends, family, loved ones, and strangers from this groundbreaking release.
We’ll be celebrating the release of the stand-alone over the next couple weeks by rolling out some memorable moments and mementos related to Left Behind. The first of those kicks off our artist series over on the Naughty Dog Shop section of the PlayStation Gear store. Check out our two Left Behind protagonists, Ellie and Riley, illustrated by the talented Cuyler Smith:
Just beautiful, right? This artwork will be a...

Beginning with Uncharted 3, we’ve worked closely with ESC-Toy and Erick Scarecrow to create amazing collectibles from the Uncharted universe and The Last of Us. From high-quality pin and limited edition vinyl figures, Erick and ESC-Toy have brought a distinctive stylized approach to our characters. Now, inspired by Uncharted 4, ESC-Toy has returned to release a new Nathan Drake figure. On top of the signature ESC-Toy design, the Uncharted 4 Nathan Drake now has 15 points of articulation and a removable grappling hook.
There are three colorways and two of them are extremely limited. The unique red and black Naughty Dog colorway is back, and only 250 pieces of that will be released. If you’re looking for something even more unique, there’s a bundle pack that includes the regular colorway, the Naughty dog colorway, an all gold colorway, and a brand new Nathan Drake pin that matches the style of the figures. The full set is limited to only 100 bundles!
Pre-ordering any of the three versions will also get you a yet to be revealed, but exclusive Uncharted 4 Multiplayer DLC character customization item.
The limited edition Uncharted 4 Nathan Drake figures are now available for pre-order on http://esctoy.limitedrun.com/
Looking to spend some time this weekend battling it out in Uncharted 4 Multiplayer? Well, we’ve got great news: starting tomorrow, we’re activating Double XP for each match completed and 50% Relic Bonuses on all completed Challenges. If you’ve been nearing that next level progression reward or if you want to invest some Relics in a new Vanity Chest, this weekend’s the perfect time to jump in.
It’s also a great opportunity to check out Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters – our latest DLC update that introduced an all-new team-based mode, marked the return of The Village multiplayer map from Uncharted 2, Cinema Replay mode, and more. Check out our blog post to learn all about it.
At Naughty Dog, we strive to make you, the player, feel as though you inhabit the stories, characters, and worlds we create. If we’re doing our job right, every aspect should feel believable and grounded in our fiction and we should elicit the same response in you as the characters are experiencing in the game. The key to it all is in details. Whether it’s animation, lighting, performance capture, dialog, or environment design, we spend a lot of time on even the smallest details that, when they all work together, help establish that emotional connection and sense of immersion.
When we first learned about the PS4 Pro, we were excited to see how we could drive new levels of fidelity and immersion in our games. We’re taking our first step by introducing day one PS4 Pro support for Uncharted 4, The Last of Us Remastered, and The Last of Us: Left Behind. Whether you own a 4K HDR display, normal 4K display, or even just a 1080p display, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of the PS4 Pro with our new game updates. Though, once you’ve seen them in 4K HDR, it might be hard to go back to anything else.Unprecedented Detail
It’s easy to think of resolution as simply a measure of clarity, but for games, it’s about more than just a sharp, clean image—it’s about a greater sense of depth and scale. The PS4 Pro has allowed us to meaningfully increase the...
Some exciting things are on the horizon for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer. Since launching our last major update, Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters, we’ve been hard at work on an all-new co-op experience, new maps, and more. But that’s not all; we’ve also been cooking up a new way for the community to try out new multiplayer modes and give their feedback: a new limited-time Beta Test playlist. Starting later today, November 3, and through the weekend, we’re giving players the chance to try out Classic Mode—a back-to-basics mode that focuses on core combat and movement. There’s no in-match Store, Radar, Mysticals, downed state, or Sidekicks and Heavy Weapons will spawn around the map.
We’re excited for you to check out Classic and hope you’ll share your feedback with us via social, the forums, and our upcoming Beta Test Playlist survey.
In the lore of The Last of Us, September 26 represents the day the Cordyceps virus reached critical mass. A grim day for the inhabitants of that world, perhaps, but for Naughty Dog and The Last of Us community, it’s Outbreak Day—an annual fan celebration featuring deals on the game, DLC, and merch, as well as the debut of new collectibles, and more.
This year, we wanted to create something special, so we teamed up with Mondo to create a limited edition poster inspired by The Last of Us. Illustrated by Kevin Tong and developed in close collaboration with the studio, this incredible design is part of a small volume production and each will be individually hand numbered and signed by the artist.
So, how can you get one? The poster is slated to go on-sale today, Monday, September 26, at 10:00am PDT / 1:00pm EDT / 7:00pm CEST (Find Your Local Time) on MondoTees.com. Again, quantities will be limited, so when the time comes, you’ll want to act fast.
Alongside the poster, we’ve worked with PlayStation to coordinate a global Outbreak Day sale on the PlayStation Store. The sale will run for the next week and includes significant discounts on The Last of Us Remastered, the Left Behind standalone DLC, select multiplayer...
We've spent the better part of the last 10 years on a journey with Nathan Drake, but as his story came to a close in Uncharted 4 and we looked ahead to the series’ first-ever story DLC, we were faced with an unprecedented question: whose story did we want to tell next? Over the years, we’ve assembled an incredible cast of characters, but of them all, we kept coming back to one in particular: Chloe Frazer. As the smooth-talking master thief that debuted in Uncharted 2, Chloe is not only one of our favorite characters, but we know she’s a favorite amongst our community. She’s also a strong and enigmatic character —in other words, perfect to be our lead protagonist in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
We revealed a first look at Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at the PlayStation Experience today with a 9 minute video of gameplay. Check out the full clip below.
Our video shows an early section of the game where we find Chloe in a war-torn city on her way to a rooftop rendezvous with her partner, Nadine Ross. Much like Chloe, Nadine is a formidable and interesting character whose complex nature we just started exploring in her Uncharted 4 debut. She’s a skilled tactician, whose cool, calculating nature offers an important contrast to Chloe’s improvisation and wit. As they venture deep into India’s Western Ghats mountain range, they’ll need to work together to recover the long lost Tusk of Ganesh.
When we began to plot out the story and our vision for the game, we realized we were building something more...
Since announcing it as part of our Uncharted 4 Multiplayer road map back in May, one of the most common questions we get is: what’s in store for co-op? Well, today I’m excited to give you a first look at Uncharted 4: Survival, our new cooperative and solo mode that will make its public hands-on debut at PlayStation Experience next week and launch in mid-December.
Survival is a wave-based mode where you and up to two additional friends can take on swarms of increasingly powerful enemies and unique objectives. If you played Co-Op Arena from Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3, you’re going to feel right at home in Survival. We’ve built upon and evolved the core gameplay experience with an entirely new level of depth, challenge, and variety. From new enemy types and powerful new bosses to a dedicated progression system and expansive upgradable arsenal, Survival is all about strategy, camaraderie, and skill.
Across 50 waves and 10 maps, you’ll face off against Shoreline mercenaries, heavily armored Brutes, Snipers, Hunters, and more that will only get more precise, more aggressive, and better equipped as time goes on. Every 10 waves culminates in an intense boss battle, including our all-new Pirate Warlords. Inspired by the story of Uncharted 4, some of the Founders of Libertalia have arrived to hunt you down with powerful Mystical attacks. Don’t miss Adam Baldridge himself as the Djinn-wielding Warlord boss in the video above.
But Survival requires...
Since launching our Lost Treasures multiplayer DLC update in June, we’ve been hard at work fine-tuning the multiplayer experience, launching the New Devon bonus map, and developing our next DLC release: Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters DLC, available now via a new update to Uncharted 4. With a returning fan-favorite map, new tools to capture and create your own original gameplay videos, an all-new objective game mode, new weapons, and more, Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters DLC is one of the biggest multiplayer DLC updates we’ve ever produced.
Most importantly, just like Lost Treasures and all future multiplayer DLC updates, Uncharted 4 Multiplayer: Bounty Hunters DLC is free for all players.. Here’s a closer look at what’s included:
That’s right; we’re bringing back Village. Not only is it one of our personal favorites, it’s also one of the most requested maps from the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community. Village has been completely rebuilt to take advantage of the PlayStation 4, including new lighting systems, high-fidelity textures, and more. We’ve also added support for Uncharted 4’s new traversal mechanics—most notably the grappling hook.
NEW MODE: Bounty Hunter
We’ve heard your feedback asking for new modes for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, and today, we’re proud to introduce Bounty Hunter—a new game type that encourages teamwork, strategy, and skill. Two teams compete to reach the score limit by collecting Bounties from KO’d players. When you KO a...
Two game reveals, three panels, two meet and greets, 36 hands-on stations, and a live show appearance—PlayStation Experience 2016 was one of the biggest events in our studio’s history. The response we’ve received from the community, both at the show and online, has been overwhelming. Thank you all for your kind words and support. We can’t wait for what lies ahead, but for now, let’s take a look back at PSX.Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Revealed
We were honored to have the opportunity to open the PSX Showcase with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, our new standalone story chapter in the Uncharted series with returning fan-favorite Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross at the helm. If you missed it, don’t miss the blog post from project leads Shaun Escayg, Kurt Margenau, and Josh Scherr to learn more about what’s to come in The Lost Legacy. If you want to see the full nearly 9 minute gameplay demo from the Showcase again, check out the video below.
Following the Showcase, we hosted a special Uncharted: The Lost Legacy panel featuring moderator Sid Shuman, Shaun, Kurt, and Josh, as well as actors Claudia Black (Chloe) and Laura Bailey (Nadine). From the origins of the project to the return of both characters, watch below as the team shares early insights.
Afterward, we invited fans to join us for a meet and greet, where they could chat with the developers and actors, as...
Let’s cut to the chase. The sequel to The Last of Us is happening, it’s called The Last of Us Part II and here is the just released announce trailer:
I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to finally be able to say that Ellie and Joel are back for another intense, harrowing, and emotional adventure. Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, it wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. After spending years on different ideas (and almost giving up), we finally uncovered a story that felt special—a story that evolved into an epic journey.
It’s still early days for the project--the game’s release is a ways off--but we couldn’t wait any longer to give you a glimpse of what’s to come. We’re going to let the trailer speak for itself, but expect more information about The Last of Us Part II in the coming months.
Until next time, endure and survive!
Director, The Last of Us Part II

It’s been just over a month since we launched Uncharted: 4 Lost Treasures DLC—our first multiplayer DLC update for Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, which introduced a new map, new weapons, a new Mystical, our revamped Rank System, and more. Since then we’ve been hard at work on our next major multiplayer DLC release and gathering player feedback as we continue to evolve the multiplayer experience. One comment we see and hear the most is “release more maps!” Rest assured, we’ve heard you loud and clear and today we’re excited to introduce New Devon, an all-new multiplayer map available now in Uncharted 4 Multiplayer.
Like all of our DLC, New Devon is available for all players as part of a free update. Inspired by the Uncharted 4 campaign, New Devon is set in the lush ruins of an abandoned pirate colony. It’s one of our largest maps to-date and features wide open exteriors with elevated vantages for those who prefer long-range engagements. If you’re more of a run-and-gun player, don’t worry—there’s no shortage of tight corridors for close-quarters combat.
Alongside the launch of New Devon, we’re also introducing an array of changes and improvements to Uncharted 4 Multiplayer, including new ways to earn Relics and unlock Multiplayer items. Now, in addition to completing Challenges, players can acquire relics by completing and winning matches. We’ve also added Premium DLC Skins and Pre-Set outfits to DLC Vanity Chests, giving players a chance to unlock Premium vanity...
