Naughty Dog detailed in a PlayStation Blog post that the multiplayer mode Plunder, which was featured in both Uncharted 2 and 3, will return in the series' upcoming instalment.

This time around, Uncharted 4's Plunder will differ slightly from its previous iterations. Players will now compete in teams of four and they will be able to move around the map freely while the idol is in their possession. Throwing the idol, of course, is still a key part of the gameplay. Plunder will have three maps, including Island, Madagascar City, and Rooftops, each of which have been featured in the Uncharted 4 Beta and the Multiplayer Stress Test. The multiplayer mode is playable at PAX East this weekend.

You can watch a short trailer for the capture the flag themed Plunder below.

Naughty Dog promises more news on Uncharted 4's multiplayer after the conclusion of PAX East. "Let me assure you, what we will be revealing soon after PAX East will please a lot of people," wrote lead game designer Robert Cogburn in his PlayStation Blog post. 

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has been delayed a few times, and now aims for a May 10 release date for PlayStation 4. Watch our recent Test Chamber here and read Kyle's feature on five things that surprised him so far about the game.
