Following the addition of PlayStation 4 Pro support to The Last of Us Remastered, Naughty Dog has now added support to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End through today’s new update. As the patch notes for Uncharted 4 update 1.15 show, there’s PS4 Pro support, support for High Dynamic Range display, and improved quality of stereo audio.

Additionally, Naughty Dog has added a limited-time Beta Test Playlist in multiplayer, letting you try out new modes. Starting today, November 3 and running through the weekend, you’ll be able to play Classic Mode – “a back-to-basics mode that focuses on core combat and movement. There’s no in-match Store, Radar, Mysticals, or Sidekicks and Heavy Weapons will spawn around the map.”

You can check out the full list of patch notes for today’s update below, which also reveal that all bundles are 70% off and Ranked Season 3 has started:

General

  • Added support for PlayStation 4 Pro
  • Added support for High Dynamic Range display
  • Improved quality of stereo audio

Multiplayer

  • Starting November 3rd, and through the weekend, you’ll have a change to jump in and try out Classic Mode
  • We will be trying out other variations of Classic Mode during our second Beta Test weekend on November 11th

Bundle Sale

  • All bundles are now 70% off until November 10th

Ranked Season 3 Has Started

  • New ranked rewards added: Gold / Platinum / Diamond / Master Aviator sunglasses

Ranked Changes

  • You can no longer see which players have joined the lobby until the match begins
  • Qualifier matches are now only required when moving between full ranks (e.g. Silver to Gold). Moving within a rank (e.g. Silver III to Silver II) doesn’t require any qualifiers.
  • Players can now be kicked during a ranked match for networking issues

Gameplay Changes

  • Players will no longer take cover on something that is fully off-screen. This led to many situations where players accidentally became stuck to cover when attempting to roll.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a couple bugs where player could lose a mystical they purchased after switching loadouts
  • Fixed teammates being able to bump the player’s camera when in aim mode
  • Fixed a bug where Bounty Hunter matches would not increment the total score earned used for unlocking new boosters
  • Fixed some collision issues on Rooftops
  • Fixed an issue with Shield of Asgard Mystical cancelling when player attempts to melee immediately after activation
  • Fixed issue where Team Deathmatch and Command matches could start with uneven teams

Cinema Mode Fixes

  • Fixed problem with rewinding several times causing a permanent black screen
  • Fixed issue when cinema file ends causing unwanted black screens
  • Fixed a crash in cinema caused by a late joiner
  • Fixed a crash that occurs during cinema replay
  • NOTE: In this patch, cinema files have switched over to a new version.  This will erase any older cinema files.

Stability Fixes

  • Fixed crash that can occur when connecting to multiplayer
  • Fixed black screen hang during loading if any user loses connection to host during the load into the game
  • Fixed a crash that occurred during Ranked TDM
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when being downed while hanging off of an edge while over water

Currently, Naughty Dog is working on “an all-new co-op experience, new maps, and more.” They didn’t provide an update on the single-player add-on today.
