With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End update 1.13 today on PlayStation 4, Naughty Dog has added Bounty Hunter mode, a revamped version of the Village map from Uncharted 2, new weapons and personalization items, and more. Here’s a look at the patch notes for today’s free Uncharted 4 update and Bounty Hunters DLC drop:
Returning Classic Map: Village from Uncharted 2
That’s right; we’re bringing back Village. Not only is it one of our personal favorites, it’s also one of the most requested maps from the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community.
Village has been completely rebuilt to take advantage of PS4, including new lighting systems, high-fidelity textures, and more. We’ve also added support for Uncharted 4’s new traversal mechanics — most notably the grappling hook.
New Mode: Bounty Hunter
- Players drop a bounty when they are KO’d worth 10 victory points
- Teams take turns hunting or protecting the Captain, who has the highest bounty
- Captain bounties start at 60 victory points and go up to 120 points
- Captain bounties must be climed, which takes a short time, so prepare to fight over them!
New Weapons, Mystical & Boosters
Using Relics earned through Multiplayer matches and Challenges, DLC Gameplay Chests now have the chance of granting access to any of the four new weapons introduced with the Bounty Hunters DLC, as well as those added with Lost Treasures and as part of the base game. Our latest Mystical, Shield of Asgard, temporarily reduces incoming damage. While it can be helpful in objective modes, it comes at the cost of movement speed.
- DC Single Action — Semi-Automatic Revolver
- RKL-155 — Fully Automatic mid Pistol
- Lowe-S – Assault Rifle
- Harrison 1890 – Lever Action Rifle
- US-AN 12 – Automatic Shotgun (Heavy Weapon)
- Lock ‘n Load — Put ammo from pickups immediately in your clip
- Undisturbed — Hold a charge melee while rolling and climbing
- Silent Assassin — Take out the enemy without the other their team knowing
- Weapons Expert — Aim your weapon while vaulting, falling, jumping
- Shield of Asgard — Reduces incoming damage for a brief period
New Feature: Cinema Replay
As promised in the Multiplayer Roadmap we shared before launch, the Bounty Hunters DLC adds Cinema Replay — a new suite of tools for capturing epic moments in-game and creating your own original videos.
Building upon the tools players will recognize from previous Uncharted games, Cinema Replay creates archived versions of matches that allow you to go back and relive every moment from any player’s perspective or through a variety of different cameras. Within Cinema Replay, you can pause, slow down, swap perspectives, or line up the perfect shot to create highlight montages, original videos, or perhaps a dance compilation or two.

If you purchased the Triple Pack, Multiplayer Pack 2 is now available, adding these items to the customization and loadout menus: RKL-155 Pistol, Lock and Load Booster, Shield of Asgard Mystical, Bandit Hat, and Pistol Spin taunt.
As Naughty Dog’s Robert Cogburn adds, “Bounty Hunters is one of the biggest multiplayer DLC updates we’ve ever produced.”
According to the multiplayer roadmap, this fall will see the addition of co-op, more maps, more weapons, and more.
Naughty Dog didn’t announce a release window for the planned single-player DLC today.
