Sony Computer Entertainment today confirmed multiplayer support for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, an upcoming action game exclusive to the PlayStation 3. For the first time Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 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. Using 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 Team Death Match and Capture the Treasure, a unique style of multiplayer competition that encourages team work to transport a treasure over dynamic terrain such as ledges and obstacles. Capture the Treasure brings truly vertical game play to traditional multiplayer modes. With maps based on environments from the single player campaign, players are taken from the night time 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.
“Adding a multiplayer aspect to the UNCHARTED franchise is a significant step in the re-playability of the game,” said Christophe Balestra, co president Naughty Dog. “UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves will be the most impressive and ambitious game that Naughty Dog has done and we are thrilled to let our fans experience it this fall.”
