Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Will Have Microtransactions
During this year’s Paris Games Week, Naughty Dog dropped a few more details about the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta, including the fact that it will have microtransactions from the start.
The lead designer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Robert Cogburn took to the stage to show off new footage and answer questions about the upcoming title. He indicated that there will be a variety of weapons, tools, and other upgrades that will be purchasable either via microtransaction, or through in-game currency.
When asked, Cogburn said, “Microtransactions will be available at launch, but we’ll have no gameplay items that will be gated through microtransactions.” He also discussed the balance of gaining items through the grind vs purchasing them and how they’ll work that out based on the upcoming beta.
It was also shown that, unlike the most realistically grounded nature of the main story campaigns, the new multiplayer will offer more high concept elements, like mystical totem, supernatural abilities, and summoning of sidekicks such as medics and snipers.
The Uncharted 4 multiplayer will run at 60 fps and 900p (while the main story campaign will be 30 fps and 1080p).
Cogburn then went on to confirm that A Thief’s End will “most likely be Naughty Dog’s last game in the series.”
