Well, Uncharted 4 fans. Cleary Naughty Dogg hasn’t forgotten about you. The developer announced earlier today that a Horde style mode, entitled Survival, is coming your way in December.
First Look at the New Mode Next Week at the PlayStation Experience Event
Uncharted 4 Game Designer Vinit Agarwal broke the news today courtesy of the PlayStation blog. Here is how Agarwal breaks Survival mode down:
“Survival is a wave-based mode where you and up to two additional friends can take on swarms of increasingly powerful enemies and unique objectives. If you played Co-Op Arena from Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3, you’re going to feel right at home in Survival. We’ve built upon and evolved the core gameplay experience with an entirely new level of depth, challenge, and variety. From new enemy types and powerful new bosses to a dedicated progression system and expansive upgradable arsenal, Survival is all about strategy, camaraderie, and skill.
Across 50 waves and 10 maps, you’ll face off against Shoreline mercenaries, heavily armored Brutes, Snipers, Hunters, and more that will only get more precise, more aggressive, and better equipped as time goes on. Every 10 waves culminates in an intense boss battle, including our all-new Pirate Warlords.”
Vinit explains that Uncharted 4‘s Founders of Libertalia have been summoned within the Survival mode to take Drake and his friends out. In today’s trailer, you get a quick glimpse of Henry Avery wreaking havoc across the battlefield.
Naughty Dogg will have Survival mode on full display next week during the PlayStation Experience event. The mode will then fully roll out to the masses in December. Checkout today’s trailer below to see what’s coming our way next month.
