Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – New Single-Player Video

Arne Meyer's Avatar + Posted by Arne Meyer on May 15, 2009 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

Hey PS.Blog readers –

In case you missed it, yesterday Gametrailers TV ran an exclusive clip of the first official Uncharted 2: Among Thieves single player footage featuring Drake scrambling through a war-torn Nepalese city in search of his new partner, Chloe. Check it out below:

Now if that gameplay footage wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, IGN just posted more than five minutes of this single player video and new story details! See even more of Drake in action as he encounters the enemies in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

I second that. Simply amazing, after seeing KZ2, MGS4, and RE5 nothing really impresses me anymore. But this is just WOW. Makes those games look kinda bad.

WOW I’m surprised if Assassin’s Creed fails me then I’ll get this.

By the way is going to be rated Teen or Mature?

Geez!!! That was so awesome! It was almost like a freaking movie! I mean Drake was so alive and he would move like a real person and make comments like a real person! The graphics are great, the water and the reflection too! OMGFG!!!

Absolutely stunning, Uncharted is still my favorite game from this generation, and it looks like this could top that. Great job Naughty Dog, I knew there was a reason you’re my favorite developer.

This reminds me, I need to go pre-order it.

Hey,

It really looks awesome. Uncharted : Drake’s Fortune rocked my socks off, but I can’t tell you what Uncharted 2 is going to rock off!

Thanks for making such great quality games, Naughty Dogs. :)

And I should get to the beta though FNAC (France), so thank you for that too. :)

Holy crap. I was always somewhat interested in Uncharted 2 but the IGN trailer totally shot that interest to the top of my wanted list. That was great! Actually reminded me A LOT about MGS4 which still remains my favorite game this generation. REALLY EXCITED NOW!

Wonder if the enemy will know your location once that grenade blew up. Cause realistically they wouldn’t unless they saw where it came from. Would be a tiny tiny bit annoying if they magically knew but doesn’t matter. Game looks freakin great! Seriously think it might be GOTY. Of course Modern Warfare 2 is gonna be a heavy competitor.

You get my money day 1. i advise you to also drop the price on the first so more people will play it so they can get excited about this one. 30 bucks sounds good for it.

+ Apnomis on May 15th, 2009 at 4:46 pm said:

Wow, I was expecting Uncharted 2 to look good, given the quality of the first game, but I didn’t expect it to look THAT good! Here’s me thinking that games would struggle to top MGS4 for graphics, guess not!

I love the way it seems completely new and fresh but still has the spirit of the original – the strong colour pallet, the weapon pickup, the motion blurred CQC etc.

I think you’ve got a AAA hit and GOTY finalist on your hands there Naught Dog!

Here’s a sticky question though, the original was held up by PS3 gamers as an example of how to do a fantastic looking game without needing whopping great 3GB-5GB installs – will the same be true of Uncharted 2? Have you managed to somehow reach the graphical prowess of MGS4 without the large install sequences?

Hey Arne, we met at the GDC PS Blog meet up.

Will there be any strategy changes needed between the different difficulty levels, or will the same game plan work across all of them?

+ wuzzerWillabee on May 15th, 2009 at 4:56 pm said:

The motion blur has a problem and it’s not the artifacts when two objects blur into each other.

Here is an example of what I’m talking about.
http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/4732/uncharted2motionblur.jpg

It’s very apparent on the foot in the top picture. The object’s edges don’t seem to be blurring much at all, but rather leaving a transparent film in their paths.

Everything else looks amazing!!!

Looking pretty damn good. The very first second of the video I was thinking MGS4! (That’s a good thing.)

It’s kind of strange how having things blow up in his face and floors crumbling beneath his feet is actually pretty funny. You guys have a talent that should be exploited to the point that NGOs start sponsoring programs to get us to stop using it because it’s becoming scarce but we can’t because we’ve become dependent on it…

The platforming/climbing animations are looking fairly stiff and sudden, but I’m betting you guys are all over that. I look forward to the release- here’s to hoping the multiplayer doesn’t detract from the single player too much.

I love companies that you know, even before the product is out, that it will be THAT good.

I have to admit it, you guys have done a awesome job so far. I know the game is not finished yet nor the multiplayer-beta is out, but I want to know if there is going to be a Demo version?

I’m sure this game will make a HUGE change on sales, since it will have Multipayer!

Also I would like to know if there is going to be any Special or Collector Edition?

This game looks absolutely amazing.

I was never one of those people that complained about the pacing of the first title, but this… man, this video shows off a mastery of pacing that I haven’t seen before. The interplay of shooting, traversal and stealth mechanics look simply phenomenal.

Did I mention that it was beautiful? Gorgeous engine.

Thanks Arne Meyer as i just leaked in my pants do to excitement (awesome) :) I really truly loved the first game so much that my money has been put aside a long time ago waiting for Uncharted 2. (i’m talking day 1 sale & i’m their in line) Will it have multi language again? that would be a nice bonus “like Uncharted 1″ Oh and great work to all you guys and ladys.

Awesome work so far guys!

Im going to be totally serious, Uncharted 1 is probably the most well done game I have ever played. Uncharted 1 was just really immersive and fun. Nathan is a well defined character, I just wanted some more background info on Nathan in part 1. Uncharted 2 just looks insane. It looks so well done, really thought out. Great job Naughty Dog, keep it up. You guys have a serious franchise going.
