Uncharted 4 DLC Trailer Showcases New Bounty Hunters Multiplayer Mode, Available Today

Sony launched a trailer showcasing a new multiplayer mode for Uncharted 4 called Bounty Hunters, available today.  Team up as you hunt down the oppositions team captain and collect the bounty placed on their head.  Each kill results in dropped tokens which your team must collect in order to score points as part of a “confirmed kill”, and it is the opposing team’s job to defend that token to deny you the upper hand on the score board.

A fan favorite map, the Village, makes its return and has players swinging on ropes, hurling kerosene canisters, and battling their way through the small Tibetan Village set during the events of the single player campaign in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

New multiplayer skins and taunts have been added, as well as a new array of weapons including the Harrison 1890 lever action rifle, the DC single action revolver, and the Lowe-S assault rifle.   A new mystical has been added called “Shield of Asgard”, and grants the players invulnerability for a duration of time allowing them to become a bullet sponge in the heat of battle.

Last, but certainly not least, players will now be able to access the newly implemented Cinema Mode, which will give them full control to record their favorite matches.

Trophy Whores 255 – Gold Bolt Treasure Mapping

It’s an exciting time to be a PlayStation 4 owner.  Ratchet, Clank and Nathan Drake are back in the spotlight, which means only good things for the PlayStation family.  Galactic heroes Ratchet and Clank are beloved Insomniac Games’ characters, and they never seem to wear out their welcome.  Drake (and Elena and Sully), too, ranks highly among Sony’s most endearing and enduring characters.  In less than a month, Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog will release Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End — possibly the end of Drake’s adventures.  The Trophy Whores — and fans — can’t wait to get their hands on it.

The Trophy Whores dedicate much time to PlayStation All-Stars Drake, Ratchet and Clank, but the Four Whoresmen always have plenty to talk about — even if it isn’t important.  Donny could entertain in a discussion about napkins and Valencia oranges, and when Alex goes on a rant about Assassin’s Creed or World Wrestling Entertainment, it’s equal parts nonsense and brilliance.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and PlayStation NEO.  With the release of a “PlayStation 4.5,” Sony risks upsetting players who invested early in the PlayStation 4.  As Tricky says, Sony seems to take one step forward and 10 steps back.  We can only hope that Sony doesn’t alienate PS4 early adopters, as buying another $400 console so soon would be too much for a lot of gamers.  Unlike Ratchet and Clank, most of us aren’t rolling around in gold bolts.

Trophy Whores 253 – Play the Groovitron Until Dawn

Ratchet and Clank are back!  Yes, the beloved galactic heroes have returned to the PlayStation!  Donny and Tricky have played a lot of the newest iteration, and they have the skinny on Ratchet and Clank’s debut on the PlayStation 4.  Let’s hope that Captain Qwark is here, there and everywhere in Insomniac Games’ latest galactic adventure.

Alex has finished Until Dawn, and he wants you to know that it’s really, really good.  He says it’s fantastic.  Alex knows a lot about video games, and you should probably listen to him.  To boot, Tricky and Donny are Until Dawn fans, so you know that it has to be a classic.  Now if only the guys can get Yield to play it.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Until Dawn, Red Dead Redemption 2, Ratchet & Clank, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.  With Uncharted 4 nearing release, the Trophy Whores are getting antsy to see what Nathan Drake has been up to.  As they are PlayStation fans through and through, the Trophy Whores wave proudly the Naughty Dog flag.  They’re fans — to say the least.  If you aren’t down with Drake, Elena and Sully, then you came to the wrong place.

Trophy Whores 248 – Trophy War Tally

The Great Trophy War  rages on!  The Trophy Whores and the Remember the Loot crew are locked in a bitter and eternal struggle — that will end on April 1.  It’s getting serious. Yield is crushing the Platinum count, and, Tricky, for fuel and luck, has an entire case of Thin Mints at his disposal.  I hope that he puts them in the freezer.

Despite the intense PlayStation Network battle for trophies and pride, the video game news industry keeps ticking.  The Trophy Whores take a break from their smack-talking ways to discuss the latest hoopla from around the Internet (and beyond!).

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Disney Infinity 3.0, Call of Duty, and No Man’s Sky.  Tricky has promised to get Alex to return to Twitter, but much like a stubborn ostrich with its head buried in the ground, Alex has refused to acquiesce.  If you are a fan of social media, then you will likely be enthralled by the discussion; however, if you don’t use social media, then you will likely be as horrified as when any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan watches Turtles III, in which our favorite shell-backed heroes run with samurais in feudal Japan.  It was a terrible idea.

Trophy Whores 244 – Super Whores Sunday

Tricky and Alex celebrated Super Bowl Sunday with each other — as well as a guest who has no rooting interest in the game.  To be fair, Tricky is a Giants fan, and Alex likes Packers, so no one has a stake in the Lombardi Trophy this year.

Some people play for trophies and accolades on the gridiron, while others play for trophies and honors on the PlayStation Network.  The Trophy Whores prefer the couch.  You don’t get hit nearly as hard when you are sitting in front of your television and have a PlayStation controller in your hand.

Even without two of the Four Whoresmen, silliness abounds.  Join our team of virtual football champions and armchair MVPs as we discuss, among other things, Apotheon, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Doom, and World of Tanks.  We’ve got more than football on our minds this week.  Who doesn’t like pizza, wings, or Nathan Drake?  He didn’t make it to the Super Bowl halftime show, but if you keep your eyes open, you might catch Nate on the horizon.
