After seeing Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer yesterday, and learning that it will run at 900p/60fps, Naughty Dog Lead Multiplayer Designer Robert Cogburn confirmed some more details about the online mode.
At a Paris Games Week event attended by VG247, Cogburn said Uncharted 4’s multiplayer won’t use dedicated servers:
We’ll still have a host, it’s still peer-to-peer.
He didn’t go into detail about how the game would react to a host dropping out, but he did confirm that matches would remain 5v5 for a maximum of 10 players at one time.
Cogburn also revealed Naughty Dog is aiming to have eight maps and they’re all “going to be new maps.”
Finally, Cogburn talked about their plans to eventually add vehicles:
I can tell you for ship we will not have vehicles, but it is something we’re hoping to tackle in the future.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End releases on March 18, 2016 for PlayStation 4. You’ll be able to try out Uncharted 4’s multiplayer from December 4 – 13 if you own The Nathan Drake Collection, though only Team Deathmatch will be included.
