Announced in September, the PlayStation 5 and PC version of Uncharted 4 it could be on the market very soon. Over the last few weeks, the package, which includes Nathan Drake’s latest adventure plus the stand alone DLC The Lost Legacy has been rated by the Australian credit rating agency and in the last few hours also by the ESRB. Which, unfortunately, may have revealed how the game is going to come without all its contents.
No, don’t worry: we are not talking about parts of the countryside missing or a complaint. According to the ESRB, the next gen versions of Uncharted 4 will arrive on the market without the multiplayer component. A detail reported clearly by the US body (comparable to our PEGI), which however raises doubts about it. The servers of the exclusive PlayStation 4, in fact, are still active and it is not clear why, at least on the next gen console of the Japanese giant, they must not be active.
On the other hand, the classification of the ESRB is clear. “Total absence of interactive elements, such as interaction between players”, reads the description of the new versions of Uncharted 4. In the original version of both games (both the main chapter and the spin-off), however, reference is made right to the multiplayer sector. Clearly, to find out more, it will be necessary to wait for an official communication from Sony, which could arrive in the next few weeks, perhaps complete with an announcement of the release date.
Uncharted 4 it originally debuted on the PlayStation 4 during the spring of 2016. This is the latest chapter developed by Naughty Dog, which has since dedicated itself only to The Last of Us brand, with the development of the second chapter of the Ellie saga, which saw the light in June 2020. In the near future of the Sony studio there should be an online game, but it is still early to know all the details. Will the reveal arrive at the next E3?
The Last of Us: Part 2 is perhaps one of the best PS4 exclusives: you can retrieve it at this address.
