Uncharted 2: More Multiplayer Details

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Apr 28, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

After yesterday’s big Uncharted 2 announcement, I’m sure you’ve got lots of questions. Once the co-op and competitive modes were revealed to the media last week, I know I did. Fortunately, I was able to grab quite a few minutes with Justin Richmond, game designer with Naughty Dog. We chatted about Uncharted 2‘s modes, how melee translates into multiplayer, and the presence of Elena and Sully.

Now, we didn’t forget about *your* questions for Naughty Dog. Chris‘ll have that video for you soon.

Jeff would it be possible for like in a future interview, you could find out about the control system. As far as when it come to Drake dive rolling & taking cover??? As many of us know who played the game, O was for taking cover as well as for dive rolling. For rolling on the ground you would have to be in a foward motion.

But as all of us know. Many time in the heat of a battle you attempt a roll and b/c you happen to be near any object or wall. Drake would many time take cover. Which only resulted in getting shot up. Cause what you’ve just dont is basically stand or squat RIGHT IN FRONT of an enemy in plain site.

I would like to see that they change this seperate buttons for each action. One for rolling and one for cover. Please?

Will there be Custom soundtracks for the Online modes

It was one of the nice little surprizes in Killzone2

Jeff, how can we get the beta other then purchasing inFamous?

+ astrocrack on April 28th, 2009 at 1:33 pm said:

I was looking forward Uncharted 2. On the other hand, like any game without multiplayer I would only buy it 6 months after it got released or until I would find a bargain. With all this polished multiplayer news it just turned into a pre-order.

Will this game have any references towards the first game? I didn’t play it.

Will you be able to play co-op offline with a friend? Please say yes.

+ Enigma777 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:38 pm said:

This looks beyond awesome!!! I cannot wait! Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is my favorite game for the PS3 and the sequel looks like it might be my favorite game of all time!

Anyways, Jeff I really want to thank you for coming through with the Fat Princess beta code for me. I had pretty much lost all hope in getting it… Thanks a lot!

+ dsigns209 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:38 pm said:

Recently played the first one and I love it. Part 2 will be a day 1 purchase.


69

+ Jezer29 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:38 pm said:

Most likely. And this would be a dumb move IMO if Sony doesn’t do this, which is that they make Uncharted 1 a greatest hits title. A couple of months before release.

So fellows like # 61 could check out what all the hype is about and seal the deal for potential UC2 buyers.

+ eddieMX07 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:39 pm said:

I will most likely buy Uncharted 2, but not until I have played Drakes Fortune. And I will only buy Drakes Fortune when the the price is lowered. I still can’t be believe the game is $53 at Amazon.com after almost two years since its release. I guess the price will be lowered after the release of Uncharted 2. Anyway, I will still buy it…

Will there be offline split screen?

how awesome is the uncharted engine to handle all the cool stuff in single player and multiplayer this is def game of the year hands down. So getting this game.

+ Pumpkinking on April 28th, 2009 at 1:45 pm said:

I hope ND add “No respawn” option for their matches.

+ ADR143 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:46 pm said:

nice interview.

hopefully the money system in multiplayer wont effect others who doesnt have wat they have.

like if u have more unlockables it doesnt mean ur unstopable

About the cinema mode feature for multiplayer games, will this have Youtube uploads for it?


77

+ almighty-slayer on April 28th, 2009 at 1:51 pm said:

Thanks a lot for the interview Jeffy. Well chosen questions. Can’t wait for Chris’s post with our own questions

I was sceptical about Multiplayer in Uncharted at first, as it doesn’t strike me as the sort of game that should have it. But it looks like it will be good afterall. As long as they keep the stellar single player experience like Drake’s Fortune, i’m fine with that ;)

+ tgo18 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:51 pm said:

It would be nice to know how long the beta will run as well. If it’s running close to release than those not too interested in Infamous might get it for a beta of Uncharted 2 if it lasted a while.


79

+ Ackers11 on April 28th, 2009 at 1:52 pm said:

Will there be offline co op, so 2 (or 3) players at home on the same console can play together?

Will the voucher be bundle with infamous in canada??


81

+ KazeEternal on April 28th, 2009 at 1:54 pm said:

So excited about this game. I was really excited about the single player experience, but now that this is out there I feel like my head is going to explode from all the joy lol.

Anyway do me a favor with the trophies, if you do any online trophies PLEASE make them reasonable. None of this 10k kill nonsense Resistance 2 gave us or the top 1% trophy on Kill zone 2 which is taking a week out of my life next week just to obtain.

Also will there be any opportunities to get in on the beta outside of Infamous? I’m not into sandbox titles and while Infamous looks cool I can’t justify spending Uncharted 2 money on Infamous.

Great interview Jeff, I’m glad you asked about the melee system :)

+ Andronicus on April 28th, 2009 at 2:04 pm said:

how can people hate on sony with first party titles like this? i always thought gaming was about the games.

Best first party studios & games + a few great third party exclusives + good multiplatform games. the last [DELETED] factor people have out there to hold onto is the price.

will there be an option for private servers so just you and your freinds can only play in it. And if there is, i would recommend options in the server like being able to unbalance teams turn off team damage… etc.
-thanks

Loving the look of MP – I’ll buy inFamous if it comes bundled with U2′s demo in Britain.


91

+ SPOPS on April 28th, 2009 at 2:13 pm said:

Please tell me that there will be other ways to get into the BETA besides inFAMOUS. That game really does not appeal to me. And in this economy I am not going to spend $60 + tax on a game I don’t really want. Although I really want to check out Uncharted’s Multiplayer because I love Uncharted.
