Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Receives Update 1.07

April 22, 2010Written by Thomas Williams

Uncharted 2’s latest expansion, ‘Siege’, arrives on the PSN later today. It adds a new co-op mode, ‘Siege’, 2 new maps, and six skins for the nice price of $5.99. Naughty Dog has let it be known that not only will the expansion hit today, but a new title update will accompany it. We have all the details you need to check out to see what has been changed.

Thanks to the Mighty fine folks over at the official Naughty Dog website, we now know that the following changes will be made sometime this afternoon:

  • Players can now select a Hero skin through their online profile for Co-op Arena matches only
  • Additional spawn system changes to enhance spawn point update effectiveness
  • Gameplay changes to prevent “airwalk” exploit by players
  • Updates to map geometry collision detection to improve prevention of players attempting to leave normal multiplayer map boundaries

What do all these changes mean? Now your opponents can’t camp out around your respawn points and cheaters chances of winning just decreased quite a bit. Seriously..if you have to cheat to win, how is there any validation in that?

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is, in this writer’s opinion, the best game on the PlayStation 3. With over 175 industry awards, including 32 Game of the Year Awards, you need to give the game a chance if you still haven’t. Look for the ‘Siege’ Expansion and the title update later today.
