Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is getting a big update on PlayStation 4 at some point today, which introduces the game's long-awaited co-op component. Titled Uncharted 4: Survival, the new mode is playable by up to three players - friends or strangers - with the AI filling in for missing players. This means that you can even tackle Survival alone - no PlayStation Plus subscription necessary.

The incoming patch will obviously be free to download, and it apparently weighs in at around 3GB. We'll update this story when it's available.

Update (19:30PM GMT): Uncharted 4 update 1.18 is out now on PlayStation 4.
