Uncharted 4's Lead Game Designer, Robert Cogburn, took to the PlayStation blog today to talk about the game's multiplayer component. One of the biggest takeaways from this reveal is that all of the future map DLC will be free to everyone!

In addition, a breakdown of the launch modes was revealed, which include Ranked matches, Command, Team Deathmatch, Plunder, and more. There is also news about co-op being added to the game this Fall along with information on cosmetics. Naughty Dog says that all in-game cosmetics can be unlocked simply by playing the game, though shortcuts to those items can be purchased using real-world money.
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.
