Uncharted 4’s Survival mode just got a new difficulty level to make the game just a little more interesting for serious fans of the game. After releasing a new update, the new Hardcore mode is meant to raise the stakes of Survival by only giving the players one chance to make it through all 50 waves.
Take on a new challenge in Survival’s Hardcore Mode, available now. This intense new difficulty tier introduces higher stakes, giving players only one chance to make it through all 50 waves. That’s right, if your team is defeated, you’re back to square one. Hardcore Mode is not for the faint of heart—it’ll take skill, close teamwork, and careful strategy.
The above quote is directly from the Uncharted website, so yes, its true. Players will only have one life throughout the entire 50 wave survival mode, if you all die, then you all start over again.
On a lighter note, Naughty Dog has decided to bring back classic mode to the beta playlist for multiplayer. With many player requesting its return, the developer was quick to answer the calls. When the game first released back in November, players were able to play classic mode for a limited run. “Classic is a back-to-basics mode that focuses on core combat and movement—there’s no in-game store, Mysticals, or Sidekicks.” As of today, you’ll be able to find the new game mode in the multiplayer playlist menu.
Today also kicks off the new Ranked season which means all new rewards. In this season, players have a chance to get their hands on a new set of weapon skins to “complement the Ranked Trucker Hats, Shades, and Bandanas offered in prior seasons”. For those who are competitive enough to reach gold rank or higher, you’ll be given a special reward of a new “Hazzah taunt”.
Naughty Dog also chose to implement numerous bug fixes and balancing adjustments. You can take a look below at all the changes detailed from the Uncharted website.
