Uncharted 4 Update 1.21 Is Live, Here’s the Patch Notes

March 17, 2017Written by Jason Dunning


With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End update 1.21 today for PlayStation 4, Naughty Dog has made King of the Hill a permanent game mode, added Savage Starlight skins for select characters, included a Personal Stats Page, and more.

Now featuring leaderboards, Cinema Replay support, and Challenges, the King of the Hill mode also includes some changes from its debut in the Beta Test Playlist. For starters, after reaching the 200 Victory Points score limit, teams must capture a final hill, called the Victory Hill.

Here’s the other changes to expect from King of the Hill:

  • Victory Points per hill increased from 60 to 80
  • KO’ing defenders will award the attacking team 4 Victory Points
  • If a defender is KO’d within the first five seconds after capturing a hill, they will respawn
  • When a team reaches the max Victory Points, they must capture one more hill (known as Victory Hill) to win the match
  • UI revamped to better communicate game rules and readability
  • Duration for Wrath of El Dorado reduced by 50% in this mode; Wrath is still quite powerful but this allows other Mysticals to play a prominent role too

And here’s everything else included in Uncharted 4 update 1.21 today:


  • Added a new feature: Personal Stats Page
  • VIP Relic Bonus has increased from 20% to 40%
  • Added 3 Weapons
  • Added 3 Survival Boosters
