Naughty Dog’s “Uncharted 4” will be hitting the consoles on May 10, but Playstation has to offer a lot more than just the game. As we try to unravel the multiplayer side of the game, we bring you the latest details from the creators and how to make your experience larger than life.
Playstation, in their latest official blog, writes about the multiplayer game’s philosophy. The Blog quotes, “We want to highlight that all future maps and modes will be included with Uncharted 4 at no additional cost, and all vanity and gameplay in-game store items will be unlockable through gameplay!
“This means that the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community won’t be fragmented by different types of DLC and that those who are loyal in participating in the community will be rewarded. Our DLC release approach will represent an entirely new direction for Naughty Dog, and we are confident it will have a hugely positive impact and keep the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer community thriving.”

Here are some of the few core philosophies listed by the blog.
Fairness First: We strongly believe that players must be on an even playing field. To do this, we made Relics, a currency that can only be earned through gameplay and will be able to unlock all DLC, present and future. We will be putting future gameplay items ranging from Mysticals to Boosters into DLC Gameplay Chests. Each Chest will contain new gameplay items.
An Evolving Experience: We intend to keep the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer experience as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Over time, Naughty Dog will release a variety of new maps, modes and gameplay items at no additional cost (including Co-op), that will introduce new rules and play styles.
DLC Accessible to Everyone: It was our goal from the start to give players the ability to earn DLC items through gameplay. No DLC item is available exclusively using Uncharted Points.
Unified Community: The idea of delivering our DLC this way was greatly influenced by the goal of having a unified community. Maps and modes will be available to everyone on the same day. This will ensure that all players are kept together and experience new content at the same time.
In addition to the philosophies, the blog also states the multiplayer DLC economy. The blog notes that the core component “revolves around acquiring the Relics.” Have a look:
Engadget too talks about the roadmap. Here is the roadmap graphic below:
Soon after the release you cab expect Playstation to release “quite a bit of content this year”, including “gameplay items, modes and maps.”
