Like UNCHARTED

The day is nearly here for our UNCHARTED fans and the multitudes who have been awaiting a new co-op game type — The UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Siege Expansion Pack will be on sale when the PlayStation Network Store updates on Thursday, April 22nd, and will set you back only $5.99.

Look for the PlayStation Store Update blog post on Thursday to know when The Siege Expansion Pack is available for purchase.

As we announced just two weeks ago, the Siege Expansion Pack is our biggest DLC release to date: two new maps, six new multiplayer skins, one new co-op game type and 11 new online-only Trophies.

Do yourself a favor and read the full rundown of what’s included in the pack, check out the screenshots, and watch the gameplay and map fly-through videos. You won’t be disappointed.

Uncharted 2: The Siege (The Plaza)

The most significant portion to the Siege Expansion Pack is the new Siege co-op game type. You can read impressions of Siege from these IGN and GameSpot reviews of the Siege Expansion Pack. Since we started testing Siege internally, up through last week’s sessions with reviewers, I’ve really enjoyed the complexities of Siege. It’s not as simple as defending pre-defined locations against waves of NPCs: Between the different vulnerabilities of each new location and the lack (or abundance) of weapon pickups, you’ll find yourself testing out interesting new strategies to maximize your points and cash.

Uncharted 2: The Siege (The Highrise)

Apart from the Siege co-op game type, I’m really excited for the two new maps. We’ve spent our time post-release wisely and learned a lot about how to build multiplayer maps that not only offer more verticality, but make it an essential part of the navigation and domination of a particular map. I love both maps, but it is the massive verticality and need to use your traversal skills that make The Highrise one of my favorite maps. Ever. Of course, the potentially lethal helicopter assault and very real danger of jumping off the buildings to your doom takes the awesome to new heights. See what I did there?

Uncharted 2: The Siege (The Sanctuary)

We also revealed the contents of Title Update 1.07 this morning, prior to the release of the update worldwide. Title Update 1.07 includes the following:

  • Players can now choose between Hero skins for Co-op Arena matches only
  • Additional spawn system changes to enhance spawn point update effectiveness
  • Gameplay changes to prevent “airwalk” exploit
  • Updates to map geometry collision detection to improve prevention of players attempting to leave normal multiplayer map boundaries

And now, I’ll leave you with this announcement:

To celebrate the release of the Siege Expansion Pack, this weekend marks the return of Double Cash Weekend!

Starts: Friday, April 23, 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?)
Ends: Monday, April 26, 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?)

What is the health like in 1.07? I liked the mp back in the beginning, but got sick of it when the health kept decreasing. Absolutely hated 1.05 and 1.06.

The delayed release of this to Asia which is still not out 1.5 weeks later is so unfair and has made me really really angry with Sony & Naughty Dog. There’s many ways that anger could’ve been avoided, such as –
1) Not region protecting the DLC (the US store version doesn’t work with Asia Uncharted 2). Don’t tell us it’s not possible, Rock Band 2 does it. If you’re going to region protect, then at least release on same day globally!
2) Make trophies retroactive for THIS DLC, even though you didn’t for the first (Don’t insult our intelligence with saying it can’t be done – you track the medals already in our stats, it’s not hard to add that to the trophy medals tally once you unlock).
3) Release the ******* DLC on the same day globally!

As it is 1.5 weeks later we still don’t have the DLC, and the game STILL reminds me I don’t have it EVERY SINGLE TIME I LOGIN, and asks me if I’d like to go to the store to purchase, which of course – doesn’t have the DLC in it.

Okay I was so excited to get this pack I bought it right away. After I payed and downloaded I went onto uncharted 2 and tried to play. When I got in it still said I hadn’t bought the pack yet, so I redownloaded it several times, but it still says I haven’t downloaded it. I tried playing for hours to get the maps and siege game but I couldn’t. Help me please, I really want this to work!

same problem as the guy above…. i downloaded and installed the siege expansion pack…but wheneve i open multiplayer, it says that you have not installed a DLC. I can’t find the new maps or the skins to play with. But i see the 11 new trophies in my trophy list. How do we use it?
I have not purchased any DLC in the past. Is that the problem? I mean do we need to buy all the DLCs for uncharted 2 before we can play the Siege expansion pack?
please someone help!!
