Today, Naughty Dog gave us all the details regarding their new mode for Uncharted 3, Shade Survival Mode.
The hoard-esque mode will pit players against several waves of Djinn, demons born of smokeless fire, as they try to survive until the final round. Here’s the official description from the PlayStation Blog:
“The Djinn haunt this mode as you and your friends will be assaulted by wave after wave of progressively more demanding opponents. There are eight rounds in total. The Djinn’s ability to catch fire and teleport poses a formidable challenge to team strategy and coordination, and later rounds include highly skilled Djinn sporting extra armor and firepower, so get ready for a hearty battle.
Players will earn a very sizable amount of cash by playing this mode through to completion and therefore can level up more quickly when surviving the onslaught. There are new medals to earn and different round objectives may come into effect during a match. The Marked Man round objective makes its first appearance in an Arena setting as a certain Djinn will be marked and then heavily protected by other Djinn bodyguards during the match.”
