Naughty Dog revealed a new mode for Uncharted 4 last Monday, something that went under the radar for some of us. Let's take a look at what's in store.
The new mode will be available first on PlayStation Experience and to be release to the general public in the mid-December. Naughty Dog described the new mode as "wave-based mode where you and up to two additional friends can take on swarms of increasingly powerful enemies and unique objectives.". Players from the co-op arena of Uncharted 2 and 3 should feel familiar, with the developer added: " 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."
This Survival mode will feature 10 maps. You'll need to clear 50 waves of enemies featuring mercenaries, brutes, snipers and hunters that'll be much more equipped as you progress through the game mode. Every 10 waves will pitch you against a boss which will include the all-new Pirate Warlords. It will also feature its own progression system where as you rank up you can earn upgrades for weapons, "new items, such as Survival-exclusive boosters." and exclusive cosmetic items that can be use both in Survival and online multiplayer mode.
