Now Loading…Uncharted 4 DLC Announced Before Release and Micro-Transactions

September 4, 2015Written by Alex Co


On the same day that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End release date was revealed, it was also confirmed that the game will have single-player DLC months ahead of its release. Not only that, but it’s also been confirmed (in the same announcement) that Uncharted 4 will have its own in-game currency called “Naughty Dog Points,” which some people surmise (and most likely rightfully so) that the game will have micro-transactions.

In this Now Loading, the staff talks about Naughty Dog announcing DLC well ahead of release and what we think of it, as well as what we think of Uncharted 4 having micro-transactions.  And yes, Naughty Dog releasing some of the best games of the decade do give them some sort of allowance in most of the staff members’ eyes.

What do you think of Uncharted 4 already having DLC announced and the game likely implementing micro-transactions? Should the studio be given a pass since they release such quality games? Weigh in on your thoughts and discuss in the comments.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be out on March 18, 2016 exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

Now Loading is a recurring staff-driven feature where PlayStation LifeStyle discusses anything video game-related under the sun (yes, even non-Sony platforms).
