After several delays, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is finally coming out in the near future. The sequel is the latest project from Naughty Dog, the acclaimed development studio behind Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, The Last of Us as well as the previous mainline Uncharted titles. If you are planning on getting the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, we also suggest picking up the following complementary products so that you can get the most out of your experience.
Triple Pack Season Pass
If you haven’t heard already, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is the first game in the series to get an add-on for the single-player story mode. Naughty Dog previously created the excellent Left Behind DLC for The Last of Us; so you can expect something great when it comes to the campaign expansion for Uncharted 4.
Two multiplayer packs are also being planned as well. The first pack comes with the long gun as well as a new booster, hat, skin and taunt. The second multiplayer expansion includes a pistol along with a new booster, hat, mystical and taunt.
If you are planning to get all three DLC releases, we suggest picking up the Triple Pack Season Pass as you will get a discount when compared to purchasing all of them separately.
