Uncharted 4 Update 1.12 Today Adds New Devon Map, Kicks Off Ranked Season 2

August 31, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

With the stream now complete, Naughty Dog has announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End update 1.12 is now live on PlayStation 4. The biggest addition with the update is the New Devon map, which is inspired by the campaign and is one of the largest maps so far:

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.

Uncharted 4 update 1.12 also includes new ways to earn Relics and unlock Multiplayer items. In addition to completing Challenges, you can also acquire Relics by completing and winning matches. Premium DLC Skins and Pre-Set outfits have also been added to DLC Vanity Chests.

As you can see in the full list of patch notes for the new Uncharted 4 update, today also sees the starts of Ranked Team Deathmatch Season 2:

Ranked Season 2 Has Started

New ranked rewards added

  • Gold / Platinum / Diamond / Master Bandanas

Individual performance has a bigger effect

  • Top Performer bonus replaced with Performance Grade for all players
  • The amount of bonus points is based on your performance in the match compared to the average in your rank

Party members share performance of the party

  • Performance of all players in the party is averaged to determine the bonus Rank Points that the whole party receives

Easier to get back into qualifiers
