Uncharted 4 multiplayer is not the most popular of them all because it has its focus on an immersive single player campaign.
However, developer Naughty Dog didn’t completely ignore the player community who are enjoying the maps and modes available. Despite their efforts to create a challenging and enjoyable online combat, there have been some issues with the game. Many players complained that the weapons are not balanced. Some of them are extremely powerful, which provides an instant win for the team wielding them, while others are forced to lose the round. Some mystical prices were imbalanced which caused chaos within the online community.
The development team has rolled out a new update for Uncharted 4 multiplayer version. According to their official statement, the weapons are now completely balanced and there are some limitations. The online mode now limits the number of mines one could use. Similarly, the stats of specific guns are increased so that they deliver enough power as their counterparts.
In a departure from how it was handled previously, only two mines can be placed at a time instead of three. It was a large number, according to the players that allowed a team to control multiple spots and secure a kill by using mines rather than guns. The firing rates of the Mettle M-30 and the Jackal have been increased. Headshot damage for the Spezzotti 12 gauge has been bumped up while the MP34 which used to have a massive 120 magazines is now reduced to 90.
General updates found in the Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End multiplayer patch include reducing idol duplication, booster chest reduction, blind fire reduction and network messaging system for easier communication. The pricing of products in the mystical store has undergone some drastic changes. Cintamani stone, the spirit of the Djinn, Indra’s eternity and Staff of Ayar Manco has been increased from their earlier price tag.
More weapons including Raffica, Jackal and Aegis have been modified so that online battles are balanced for a fair play. Naughty Dog has released the official list of changes made to the game in their website. You can take a look into it or read them all within the game. The Uncharted 4 single player campaign received some amazing reviews, while the multiplayer version continues to add value to the title once the players manage to finish the story.
On the whole, it’s considered a fitting end for the Nathan Drake franchise and a next gen title announcement is expected at E3 2016.
