Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Multiplayer Will Run at 900p/60fps

Following the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer trailer revealed earlier today at Paris Games Week, Naughty Dog confirmed that it will run at 60 frames-per-second/900p.

In a presentation attended by Eurogamer, Naughty Dog revealed the 60fps/900p multiplayer news, which is quite different from the 30fps/1080p you’ll see in the single-player campaign.

Here’s a look at some new systems you’ll find in Uncharted 4’s multiplayer:

  • Sidekicks – When you are in a pinch you can call in your friendly Sidekick to help you. These are unique, AI controlled characters that come equipped with unique abilities that can help turn the tide of a battle.
  • Mysticals – These are supernatural abilities from the Uncharted series that give a player unique powers. See if you can recognize what Mystical abilities we are showing off in the trailer.
  • Grappling Hook – Last, you will be able to leverage the grappling hook in a number of locations in our multiplayer maps. We have also heavily leveraged this exciting mechanic for our melee. Yes, you will be able to land on people and take them out –would you expect less?

The Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta for owners of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection runs from December 4 – 13 and features team deathmatch, with public demos being held at PAX Australia and Lisboa Games Week. The full game, complete with multiplayer, then launches on March 18, 2016.
