Uncharted 2 Now Featuring Multiplayer
Happy Monday, everyone. Over the weekend news leaked of an “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves” multiplayer beta invitation being included with preorders of Sony’s PS3 exclusive “Infamous.” The thing is that word on any multiplayer in Naughty Dog’s hit franchise has been kept on the d.l. for quite some time, until now.
Naughty Dog has finally released details and a new trailer on what we can expect when “Uncharted 2″ sees its release later this year.
The game will offer three competitive modes: team deathmatch, plunder, and co-op. Team deathmatch is your standard deathmatch pitting a bunch of good guys (Chloe, Drake, Elena, Sully) against a bunch of mercs. Plunder is a lot like your typical capture the flag, but instead of a flag it’s a treasure that you must drag back to your teams base. While you can drop the treasure at anytime, you will be slower and only granted access to the one-handed pistol while dragging it to your base. The last mode is co-op, which allows for up to three players and will have you playing special missions that differ from the single player campaign. While the missions may take place in the similar areas, they will play out much differently then when you are going through them solo.
This is all very exciting news. If you ask me, “Uncharted” isn’t a game that really needs multiplayer, but if they pull it off, it’ll be a welcome addition to the series. The game reportedly plays very similar to the first one and has a bit more emphasis on vertical combat - fighting villains while hanging on ledges, climbing walls, etc.
