Uncharted 4 Is Bringing Back Plunder Mode On Its Multiplayer

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will include the multiplayer Plunder Mode, Naughty Dog revealed on the PlayStation Blog. Plunder mode was in Uncharted 2 and 3, and is a variant on Capture the Flag where you can throw the object of interest, in this case an idol. The short teaser below shows off the updated version of the series' take on Capture the Flag.


Those that played the multiplayer for Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 will be familiar with what's involved, but for those who didn't, here's the details as explained by lead game designer Robert Cogburn.

"Plunder is a Capture the Flag type game mode but with an Uncharted twist--you can throw the idol (AKA flag)," he said on the PlayStation Blog. "Great teamwork is key to winning the match as you’re tasked with finding the idol on the map and bringing it to your home treasure chest.

"For those familiar with the classic Plunder game type, we've made a few updates. In previous Uncharted games, people carrying the idol could not traverse with it; we removed this constraint. Also, Plunder has been a five-on-five experience in the past; we changed that to four vs. four.

"No doubt this may cause shortness of breath for fans of the mode, but worry not! Given the number of mechanics that have been introduced into our multiplayer’s moment-to-moment gameplay, Plunder at four vs. four is perfect and we hope fans that experience this mode at PAX East feel the same."

If you're at PAX East this weekend, you're in luck, as Plunder mode is playable at the PlayStation booth. You'll be able to test it out on the maps Island, Madagascar City, and Rooftops.

PS4 owners can pick up Uncharted 4, Nathan Drake's final adventure, on May 10. It's just less than 3 weeks to go, and I can't wait to play the game. I can't wait to be blown away on the intro of Uncharted 4! And since this is the last Uncharted game, I'll try playing its multiplayer (Plunder Mode). I think it will be worth my time, and I have to utilize my PS Plus subscription because I'm just using it mainly for downloading the free games that it offers every month. In the meantime, I'll try to platinum the game Ratchet and Clank while waiting for Uncharted 4. Happy weekend guys!

I loved Plunder. It was one of my favorites basically because of the strategy involved. I enjoyed being able to throw the treasure to teammates creating a great gameplay experience, rather than your typical capture the flag type matches.

Does anyone know if this game will have Co-op like Uncharted 3 did? I liked the way they handled that keeping it totally unrelated to the story but let you and others traverse through levels shooting things. I honestly have been trying to keep away from information regarding this game, and without reading something I don't mean to I'm curious if anyone knows.

Had fun with the Beta. Plunder was great, glad it's coming back. Also good to hear you can traverse with the idol now. But guess they kinda had to with the grappling hooks.
