Tournaments are coming to the multiplayer of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, allowing its dedicated fanbase to prove who is the best treasure hunter, with the first competition open to sign-ups.
In an announcement post on its website, developer Naughty Dog confirmed that Uncharted 4 multiplayer tournaments are now underway, following the launch of the PlayStation 4’s firmware 5.00 update. Any players of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy or Uncharted 4 can partake in the tournaments. Teams are player-made, and after a competition ends, tournament results will be posted automatically for all to see.
To start the tournament process, players must first have the PS4’s latest update downloaded and installed. From there, one must go to the Events menu on the PS4 and access the new Tournaments option, which will let you create, join, and manage a team. This new PS4 feature also allows players to browse and enlist in active tournaments, view schedules and rules, communicate with other team members, and more.
After a player forms and registers their team for a tournament, they can go into one of the two Uncharted games and access that the Tournaments menu. It’s here that players will matchmake when their tournament is starting by simply hitting the “Play Tournament Match” option.
The first Uncharted 4/Lost Legacy tournament starts on Sunday, October 8th, and registration is now open.
In other, less competitive (and less game-oriented) Uncharted news, the Uncharted film may finally have its Sully.
