With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End update 1.21 today for PlayStation 4, Naughty Dog has made King of the Hill a permanent game mode, added Savage Starlight skins for select characters, included a Personal Stats Page, and more.
Now featuring leaderboards, Cinema Replay support, and Challenges, the King of the Hill mode also includes some changes from its debut in the Beta Test Playlist. For starters, after reaching the 200 Victory Points score limit, teams must capture a final hill, called the Victory Hill.
Here’s the other changes to expect from King of the Hill:
Victory Points per hill increased from 60 to 80
KO?ing defenders will award the attacking team 4 Victory Points
If a defender is KO?d within the first five seconds after capturing a hill, they will respawn
When a team reaches the max Victory Points, they must capture one more hill (known as Victory Hill) to win the match
UI revamped to better communicate game rules and readability
Duration for Wrath of El Dorado reduced by 50% in this mode; Wrath is still quite powerful but this allows other Mysticals to play a prominent role too
