[UPDATE] The stream has begun. Naughty Dog started off by confirming that Uncharted 2’s Village is returning in Uncharted 4. It looks better this time and has been changed to make use of Uncharted 4’s mechanics like the grappling hook. It’s also larger.

There are also new weapons and boosters included with the Bounty Hunters DLC, as well as a new Mystical ability. Additionally, there are 10 new ranks for multiplayer, while there are more than 40 new personalization items. There are also new taunts.

Community manager Scott Lowe also said during the stream that, while split-screen support was considered, Naughty Dog has decided to focus on delivering new content instead. Additionally, a classic mode is under consideration, but no decisions have been made as of yet.

As for the new cinema replay mode, this archives the 10 most recent multiplayer matches, so you can go back and watch your performance. It also features a free-cam, so you can zoom in and look at the action from different angles. You can look at any player, with three different camera styles.

Bounty Hunters is available right now on PS4.
