Naughty Dog is set to introduce some “beautiful looking” multiplayer levels in its upcoming action-adventure title, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The development team is hoping to create multiplayer maps that will look just as good as the games single player levels.
The developers have listed several job positions on its official career website. According to the listing, the team is now looking for a “Multiplayer Level Layout Artist”, who will have several responsibilities, the most important of which is designing the games multiplayer maps. Their main aim is to make the games multiplayer map.
You can check out the responsibilities for the Multiplayer Level Layout Artist position below:
Check out the responsibilities for the Multiplayer Level Layout Artist below:
- Assemble beautiful looking and beautifully playable multiplayer levels from existing single player art.
- Trouble-shoot levels and maintain them to stay in frame rate, memory and design spec.
- Work to quickly integrate existing art assets into multiplayer designs.
- Use existing art assets to create multiplayer designs, additions, and refinements.
It seems like the games multiplayer maps will be based off the single player levels, as the position does mention that the artist will have to “assemble” the level “from existing single player art”. The employee will also have to make sure that the level looks good and plays well. To ensure this, the employee will have to meet certain requirements such as “3+ years in level art layout and design” and being an “avid multiplayer gamer”. It’s great to see that the developers are taking the multiplayer mode seriously.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Naughty Dog has not revealed an official release date for the game yet but it is likely to be out later this year. Meanwhile, you can click here for more details on the game.
