by Rainier on April 9, 2010 @ 9:37 a.m. PDT

Fortune hunter Nathan Drake returns in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Naughty Dog's blistering PS3-exclusive third-person action/adventure shooter.

On April 22 SCEA will release the Siege Expansion Pack, the new DLC features the first add-on co-op game type (“Siege”), in addition to 2 new multiplayer maps, 6 new skins, and 11 new trophies.

Co-op Game Type

Siege

Pits 2 or 3 players against the AI.
Objective: capture and hold the territory against the waves of increasingly difficult AI adversaries. All players must be in the territory to capture it, so it’s a constant battle to keep the AI from assaulting the player’s position.
Players compete in one territory per round and the territory changes location every round.


2 Multiplayer Maps

The Highrise

Towering over the streets of Nepal, The Highrise is a map with plenty of opportunities for players to get the high ground on their opponents. Set on a series of destroyed and under-construction buildings, players need to be on their toes as there are many different jump locations and paths around the map. Players should also watch out for the incoming airstrikes, as they can clear the rooftops in seconds.

The Museum

Set at dusk amongst the courtyards and display cases at the site of Drake and Flynn’s heist, The Museum provides players with a mix of intense gameplay covering traversing across rooftops, dodging gunfire through twisting corridors, and close quarters fighting. Players need to watch their backs as there are numerous flank routes in all parts of this circular map.  Players should also learn the secret climbing routes that will allow them to get the drop on their opponents.

Fortune hunter Nathan Drake returns in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, a blistering third person action adventure shooter.

Down on his luck, Drake is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure seekers he had sought to leave behind. When a mysterious artefact propels Drake on an expedition to find the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala, he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse against a fugitive war criminal who is after more than just the fabled riches of the lost city.

Caught in a web of deception and plunged into an increasingly deadly pursuit that tests the limits of his endurance, Drake will be forced to risk everything – but has his luck finally run out?

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, the follow up to Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, will feature up to 10 players in 5-versus-5 competitive gameplay. Cooperative multiplayer modes allow up-to-3 players to progress through a variety of environments by working together to accomplish set objectives. Utilizing a robust party system, groups of players will remain together in ranked and custom matches while earning currency, which used in combination with currency earned in single player missions, will unlock additional content and upgrades.

Presented with multiple modes of competitive gameplay, players battle in ranked matches that include Death Match and Plunder, a unique style of multiplayer competition that encourages team work to transport a treasure over dynamic terrain such as ledges and obstacles. Plunder brings truly vertical game play to traditional multiplayer modes. With maps based on environments from the single player campaign, players are taken from the nighttime streets of a war torn city to a Nepalese village and have the ability to create custom games allowing them to play any type of game on any map.

Features:

  • Free-flowing gunplay adds a unique vertical element to standard third person shooting mechanics
  • Immersive action adventure epic featuring gun fights, melee combat, stealth, platform play and puzzle solving
  • A blockbuster gaming experience – over-the-top set pieces, compelling cinematics and high production values plunge you into the story
