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

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by 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.

Wow… Why does it use the MP maps? That kind of ruins it for me….

This looks almost identical to the treasure mode in the BETA. Only difference is that you are facing AI. Still looks bad ass though.

only 82 day till greatness! I can’t wait.

ahhh this is amazing!

YEah I really do like Uncharted, and the beta was superb.

But even cooler is the whole brotherhood of Playstation that is kind of emerging. We know Arne, becuase he is on NeoGAF, and Twitter, and same goes for Jared, and then Jeff is there too. And I was just listening to PSNation podcast with Kyle Schubel.

It’s feeling really cohesive and awesome, and I enjoy knowing the people that are explaining.

I kind of adds to that viral/community/social element of games, which really excites me.

Great job guys! This has really made my night.

this looks awesome, day one buy for me.


+ katsuo7171 on July 23rd, 2009 at 3:07 pm said:

OHHH they also added a new room on that balcony where you cash the treasure. Plus I think the reticule for the handgun changed too? Plus Elena has long black pants now instead of the short cargo pants?

I was looking over his shoulder with a glare on the T.V. so I couldn’t really see the graphical changes…

Uncharted 2 rocks!!!!!!

OMG i hate jeff!! I wish i was their, cant wait for this game to come out. (it’s going to be kick ass.)


+ SpeedRacer1955 on July 23rd, 2009 at 3:17 pm said:

Well when I was in the beta with my friends we created a 5man team and then did the same thing in Treasure mode in the Beta. We would win more than we would loose but we did loose some.

It is fun to see that some suggestions about game-play have been recognized by the Dev team.

With all the extra modes and stuff getting revealed for U2, it’d be nice to have a detailed fact sheet kept up-to-date.

Great game, loved the beta. Can’t wait for the release.

Is it just me or did that guy like to point out the obvious? That dude’s annoying.


+ RavageHeitaro on July 23rd, 2009 at 11:15 pm said:

o.0 awesome mode! oh and I preordered yesterday :)


+ muzzar69 on July 24th, 2009 at 3:52 am said:

for co-op are we going to be able to have say me and a friend on the one console than the rest via online?
thats one thing i wish games had more of, the ps3 can have 7 controllers connected at once but theres less than 1% of the ps3s library lets you use 2 let alone 7.
also when is it going to be released in australia?


+ footballrule on July 24th, 2009 at 7:02 am said:

now that is cool! i miss the beta though…lol


+ uns33n_H3R0 on July 26th, 2009 at 2:48 pm said:

Yeah that’s my TV


+ HaLe_2_NaTHaN on July 26th, 2009 at 8:15 pm said:

@78 just wondering if you even played the first one or for that matter even own a ps3,just curious because your comment sounds like fanboy stuff


+ sparren on July 26th, 2009 at 8:27 pm said:

i picked up a few navarro multiplayer skin codes..

ill leave them for sale to the highest bidder.. contact me on PSN.. same name as the one you see here.


+ Shift41 on July 28th, 2009 at 3:15 pm said:

this looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the only thing i don’t like is the blood indicator to show where you are getting shot from, it looked better when they first showed the game off when they first released the beta.

that is my only concern about how the game looks.

this could be game of the year!!!!

keep up the good work Naughty Dog!!!!!!!


+ cheeseguy55 on July 29th, 2009 at 5:55 am said:

I am quite disappointed that Naughty Dog made the decision to not include split-screen because the game would take a small graphical hit. Playing with buddies on the couch is really fun and also helps them decide to buy the game as well. I never play single player/only online games when my friends are over.
