Naughty Dog has released a new update for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End that addresses what sounds like a pretty significant issue with the game's multiplayer Seasons.
As explained on the Uncharted website, Ranked Season 5 started on April 3, and this should have reset players' progress. However, Naughty Dog discovered an issue that kept this from happening. To fix the issue, the studio is resetting the reset for a "clean start for all players."
"Any progress made in Ranked Season 5 will be reset, but don't worry--any Ranked rewards you earned along the way will be retained," Naughty Dog said.
The studio said it's making some adjustments to ensure that everyone can earn the Cowboy Hat item (a Season 5 reward) and the Cabbage Patch taunt. Here's how Naughty Dog explains the situation:
"As you advance through ranks in Season 6, you'll earn our new Ranked Sniper Masks like normal, but at the end of the season, you'll also receive each Ranked Season 5 Cowboy Hat corresponding to your final rank," Naughty Dog said. "Those that reach Gold III or higher will receive the Season 5 Ranked Cabbage Patch taunt AND the Season 6 Ranked Walk It taunt. Lastly, at the end of Ranked Season 6, players will be awarded additional Relics."
Additionally, Naughty Dog clarified that there will be no changes to the Uncharted 4 multiplayer ranked rules for Season 5, though it is considering tweaks for Season 6.
Finally, some balance changes and a fix have been implemented in the new patch.
