Comic-Con 09: Uncharted 2′s Gold Rush Revealed

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jul 23, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Unlike last year, there’s been a bit of space between E3 and Comic-Con this year, and that means: the games on hand have had a couple of months to be refined. That was acutely on display over at the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves area of the PlayStation booth. Naughty Dog unveiled a new co-op gameplay type, Gold Rush, but that was only part of the story. As a veteran of the Uncharted 2 beta, the visual and gameplay enhancements were evident as soon as I picked up the controller. Naughty Dog‘s Arne Meyer explains Gold Rush, and (at the end) shows you why you need to drop by and play the demo at this Comic-Con if you can make it.

It’s a lot easier to throw it as far as you can and then shoot your way to it. I honestly thought the online would suck but it was awesome. The climbing aspects of the online is what I enjoyed most.

I noticed that running with the treasure seemed faster than in the beta. I hope it’s not too much faster, being sluggish was a challenge that I enjoyed.

Thanks for the vid Jeff!

So it’s basically horde mode but you have to collect treasure? Sounds good to me.

same question as #6. skins are a big deal to people. i mean look @ lbp dlc. thats all they offer is skins and costumes and everyone always buys that. so yea any other chances of getting the skin. also is the revenge attribute from preordering @ gamestop unlockable anyway? and when are we getting the Fat Princess Video Interview? O my so many questions.

This looks great guys I am really excited for this game I have always liked naughty dog. I loved playing horde with friends and this looks like a lot more fun because it is objective based.

@Jeff,

I don’t if it’s just me; but whenever I put my mouse is over the video, the video will automatically restart.

I am using firefox 3.5.1

@24, I can’t rank the video either


31

+ Darkatomz on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:15 pm said:

Looks a little bit smoother from the beta a month back. Also, you seem to move a lot faster too. Wonder if that applies to co-op and multiplayer as well.

+ SnowboardZombie on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:16 pm said:

Is split screen going to be an option?


33

+ TRIX_BOL on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:17 pm said:

It keeps getting better and better, we just need it to hit stores. Really loved this new co-op mode, looks fun and smoother than the Beta’s.

Thanks for listening to our feedbacks Naughty Dog. I hope to play any UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer mode with you Jeff, I want to test your’s veterane skills!

Thanks for the news.

I’m unable to rate blog posts today for some reason.

+ FoolKiller79 on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:31 pm said:

I wasn’t aware there would be this kind of Sony display at ComicCon.

Out of curiosity what other games are being shown?

This looks awesome, but multiplayer is always secondary to a quality singleplayer experience for me.

+ TheThunder2008CA on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:33 pm said:

yeah I”m also getting the video restart thing whenever I put my mouse cursor on it

I’m using Firefox

Played it in the beta. I like this mode, it’s fun.

Yay, go uncharted!

+ NITROWOLF_2 on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:40 pm said:

Jeff or anyone i know i should call sony and ask but my phone is broken (also be posting in forums), my ps3 broke and kz2 is inside will i get it back if i leave a note on top saying its in there?

btw can’t wait for this game, i love the team behind uncharded keep up the good work.

+ lowhonor on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:45 pm said:

i dont think this mode will be very popular for the same reason the mode wasnt popular in 5v5 matches. people don’t like to complete objectives. i personally love to and even i dont think this is a good mode for coop.

this actually should be a straight horde type mode. no one wants to lug the gold around and toss it up just for someone else to pick it up to score. it slows down the game while your carrying it and overall its going to be repetitive. how many enemy types could there be? everyone is human there are no monsters and such.

i think this mode really needs to be rethought out and not added for the sake of having a game with tons of features

Is that Arne from GAF?

+ bleu-manga on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:48 pm said:

@lowhonor

Have you played the CTF mode in the Uncharted 2 beta? It was very fun, and this is the same, but with ai enemies that get progressively stronger.

+ Draicus on July 23rd, 2009 at 1:52 pm said:

Looks absolutely awesome.
