"Survival arena offers thousands of potential encounter combinations for you and up to two additional players to take on," Naughty Dog wrote in a post on the official PlayStation blog. "For your efforts, you can also earn our new savage starlight skeleton skins, unlockable exclusively through survival arena."

Uncharted 4 is getting an all new co-op mode, Survival, in mid-December.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, this standalone mode tasks up to three players to fend off increasingly powerful waves of enemies. Spread across 10 maps, each challenge will consist of 50 waves of foes with a boss appearing every 10th wave. You can catch a glimpse of the Djinn-wielding Warlord boss in the trailer below.
There's more to Survival mode than just slaying enemies though, as you'll be given more varied objectives like collecting a certain amount of treasure within a time limit, or defeating marked foes. Sometimes you'll be given more stringent rules, like waves where you can only use pistols, or you'll face off against enemies that only take damage when shot in the head.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End developer Naughty Dog has revealed its previously behind-closed-doors E3 demo, showing us over 14 minutes of gameplay.
The first half of the demo we saw at Sony's E3 press conference, but this one goes on much longer. The gist of it is that Nathan Drake and his grey fox mentor Sully are chasing after Nathan's brother, Sam, who is being pursued by throngs of henchmen hunting the same treasure. What starts as a fist fight quickly turns to a shootout then a car chase.
The E3 press conference demo ended with Drake slamming into a scaffolding while dangling from a grappling hook attached to an enemy truck on a bridge. Now, we get to see our hero dragged around a bit while simultaneously shooting his oppressors. He eventually meets up with Sam, whose personality delightfully reflects that of his sibling.

You can get away with a lot of things when you're Nathan Drake.
The Uncharted series has only toyed with vehicle a bit in the past, but this is the first time you're able to go on a lengthy chase with winding roads and maintain full control of your vehicle. It still looks largely scripted, however, in keeping with series tradition.

Naughty Dog has finally revealed an expansive live gameplay demo of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End to kick off the PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas.

The demo begins a little underwhelmingly with a slightly older Nathan Drake (whose rounder face is beginning to look a bit like Martin Sheen) spelunking and mountain climbing. The platforming looks very scripted, surfaces crumble and Drake says "whoa" a lot. So far, so Uncharted.
