Uncharted 2′s Multiplayer Modes Revealed
The rumors have finally been confirmed, and then some. Naughty Dog has been able to keep a major secret for almost a year and half, and today we finally get to tell you about it. Evan Wells, co-president of Naughty Dog, has posted new info on the co-op and multiplayer modes for upcoming blockbuster Uncharted 2: Among Theives. Here’s what he had to say on the PS Blog:
“If you’ve been looking closely at our interviews, our team here at Naughty Dog has been growing rapidly and we now have quite a few more Dogs on staff than when work finished on UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune. It shouldn’t be a surprise that we had to grow our studio to tackle the task of creating fully-realized multiplayer and co-op modes that would live up to our own high standards and do the UNCHARTED universe justice. I’m incredibly proud at the excellent work our team has done so far and it shows in the solid gameplay and incredible polish of the little slice we showed press last week. And if you’re dying to get your own hands on it, don’t worry, we’re having a multiplayer beta! It starts on June 3rd and you can get access to it through vouchers in inFamous, which goes on sale May 26th.”
We’ll be back soon to talk more about our single player campaign – don’t think for a second we’ve forgotten about that! The rest of our team at Naughty Dog has been hard at work pushing our engine to its limits while creating a campaign that is more expansive and more ambitious than UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune. They’ve even learned a few tricks from our multiplayer and co-op development – truly a win-win situation as all aspects of UNCHARTED 2 are benefiting from the work we’re putting into both single player and multiplayer modes.”
Exciting times for all of our Uncharted fans out there. Make sure to watch the new Multiplayer trailer below!
