I must admit, I felt a little flutter of excitement when I saw the Uncharted 4 multiplayer trailer, unveiled by Sony at their Paris Games Week event yesterday. There was a piece of me that forgot what I was watching. Based on the way the video wound up, with a couple of protagonists, my mind instantly and instinctively made a jump it shouldn’t have.
“Is this co-operative campaign play in Uncharted 4?” My giddy mind asked, foolishly, but it should have known better.
Then the video continued, and it became apparent that it’s the Uncharted 4 multiplayer trailer that you see above. All of your favourite crew members are back, quipping and cracking wise just like they do in the campaign, and generally beating ten bells out of faceless henchmen in a distilled essence of the best and most fun take-downs from the games thus far.
And then they call in some reinforcements, your standard online multiplayer support roles – in the form of a sniper, medic and some sort of bizarre tank-lady – and it all gets a bit chaotic. Then Elena takes a potion that apparently transmogrifies her into The Flash, and Nathan throws what looks like a golden landmine that actually turns into the statue of El Dorado and starts zapping bad guys…
I hate multiplayer.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is released on March 18, 2016. Pre-order it now from Amazon.
