A new ESRB assessment suggests that the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves remaster collection for PS5 and PC removes Uncharted 4’s multiplayer mode
The ESRB assessment for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves on PlayStation 5 and PC suggests Uncharted 4th multiplayer mode has been removed in the remaster. Naughty Dog announced it Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves remasters of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and spin-off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for PS5 and PC during PlayStation Showcase 2021, following rumors of one Uncharted collection where all five games reportedly come to PC. However, the actual release will only include the franchise’s two most recent titles, excluding the original Uncharted trilogy from the remastered package.
Naughty Dog first brought multiplayer Uncharted franchise with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. A departure from the original game (which was a strictly solo affair), Uncharted 2 multiplayer had several game modes, including co-op, where players could randomly upgrade characters, unlock new weapons and perks, and fight against it across several cards from the single-player campaign. Multiplayer mode made a comeback Uncharted 3 and was later added Uncharted 4 in an update that included an overhauled store in the game and included features from the base game. Unfortunately, Uncharted 4 multiplayer was less popular than previous releases, and prominent team-based multiplayer FPS Overwatch released the same month in 2016.
According to an ESRB rating (via VGC), that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves remaster collection will not include return of Uncharted 4 multiplayer. The PS5 and PC ratings indicate that the collection will have no “interactive elements”, which include user interactions, location sharing, sales of digital goods or services, and unlimited Internet access. Although not confirmed by PlayStation or Naughty Dog, it probably means the PS5 and PC versions of Uncharted 4 is not released with multiplayer mode included.
Despite being known for great success in single-player games, Naughty Dog continues to add multiplayer game modes to its titles, such as The last of us multiplayer mode was praised for its brutal and tactical gameplay. Naughty Dog is currently developing an unnamed independent multiplayer spin-off of The Last of Us Part II, and a recent confirmation revealed that it is still in production.
Removing multiplayer from The legacy of the thieves is not unprecedented, as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection also excluded multiplayer. Based on that, Sony could execute the same plan with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves in early 2022. It seems unlikely to be added, however Uncharted 4th the absence of multiplayer mode has not yet been officially confirmed or rejected. A final answer will likely be given soon, possibly when pre-orders go live.
