Uncharted 4’s Multiplayer Looks Pretty Sweet, Here’s A Trailer

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End‘s multiplayer was shown off a bit during Sony’s Paris Games Week conference, where we also learned how it will be running on PlayStation 4 when it launches next year.

Naughty Dog has confirmed that the multiplayer¬†will run at 60fps and 900p, compared to the singleplayer that will run at 30fps and 1080p. This falls in line with the developer’s previous statement of shooting for 60fps in multiplayer, though sticking with the lower fps to allow for a more cinematic singleplayer.

There are some new mechanics that are being implemented into the game’s multiplayer, which are detailed below:

  • Grappling Hook: This allows you to swing around areas to either cross gaps or even drop down on enemies to deal a powerful blow.
  • Mysticals: Supernatural abilities that give players unique powers, though specific details are slim at this point.
  • Sidekicks: Call in a sidekick to help you out when the going gets tough. They’re AI-controlled and will come equipped with special abilities to change the momentum of a battle in your favor.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will launch exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on March 18th, 2016.

Sony’s Paris Games Week Conference Date Revealed

While Sony didn’t show up for this year’s Gamescom event and basically let Microsoft walk all over them as a result, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a chance to make up some ground elsewhere. An image has been uploaded by a NeoGAF user named foxbeldin that reveals Sony is planning to have a press conference during Paris Games Week on October 27th.

Unfortunately, we know very little regarding what kind of event this is, but there is some speculation revolving around a few major IPs from Sony that might just be making an appearance. Media Molecule’s strange and intriguing game Dreams is speculated to make an appearance, while more footage from the incredibly impressive Horizon: Zero Dawn may also¬†show up

Apart from first-party games, we’ll probably hear more about some third-party games and even upcoming console bundles that will be releasing in time for the Christmas season. Check out the image confirming Sony’s participation in the Paris Games Week event below.

Might we hear a little something about the PlayStation Vita? No? Okay…
