UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition coming October 12th

Arne Meyer's Avatar + Posted by Arne Meyer on Sep 28, 2010 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

Like UNCHARTED

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly a whole year since UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves was released! Since then we’ve sold over 3.8 million copies worldwide of UNCHARTED 2, hosted more than 125 million online multiplayer matches and won more Game of the Year Awards than we know what do with.

Not exactly a bad problem to have.

UNCHARTED 2

To commemorate UNCHARTED 2 as the definitive Game of the Year in 2009, we’re proud to reveal the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition!

UNCHARTED 2: Game of the Year edition

On October 12, 2010, copies of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition will start hitting retailers all over North America. For just $49.99, you’ll get the regular retail Blu-ray of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves along with a “super voucher” for the PlayStation Network Store that lets you download ALL of the following DLC content:

Sparing me the need to bust out a calculator, I’m told the total value of all the content we’re including in our Game of the Year Edition comes in at more than $35.00 if you purchased it all separately — and some of the content isn’t even available for purchase separately, so the bonus just got even better.


Releasing our Game of the Year Edition in the same week as our one-year anniversary of release is not without benefits – we have set aside Saturday, October 16, 2010, as the date to join us online for some awesome anniversary festivities!

We’ll be running a special one-day only playlist which compiles a “Best of…” selection of gametypes we’ve chosen from previous episodes of “The Lab.” We’ll also have plenty of Dogs online nearly all day in that playlist to play against. But that’s not all – we’re not ready to reveal everything yet, so please check back on NaughtyDog.com in the next few weeks. We’ll be posting more details on all the awesomeness we have in store for our fans!

And last but not least, head on over here to check out the IGN exclusive interview with our very own Evan Wells and Justin Richmond for an inside look at how they are feeling a year since launch, multiplayer stats, accolades, and more!

    There is no support for PS MOVE in this Game of the Year Edition — only what’s listed in the blog post above.

That’s kinda doodoo of you guys. I buy the game the day it comes out for full price, and then everyone else gets it for 10 bucks off and $35 in free DLC? I didn’t get any of that and bought it full price!

    Value-packed releases and price waterfalls (meaning things like Greatest Hits releases) are pretty standard and long established in the gaming industry. We’re not doing anything radical or new here — however we do have to find ways to sweeten the deal over time to attract new players to our games and these ways are effective at doing so. The positive side is that you’ve had a year head start (on MP cash, levels, skill, Trophies, etc.) on everyone else joining in at this point.

Is there a separate code card for the golden guns? I already purchased everything else.

Looks like I might get this version instead.

Do you guys think you can add a game status update on the xmb like Modern warfare 2 that tells you what mode your friends are playing, Super Street fighter 4 done it with a patch so i was thinking maybe Uncharted 2 could do it aswell. thanks

That’s a pretty sweet deal, now release a collector’s edition of it so people who didn’t win the collector’s edition last year can get a Phurba dagger replica and I’m sold :)

Naughty Dog, I you guys ROCK, this game was Spectacular, I also loved first Uncharted and I can’t wait, just can’t wait to see what you are hiding up your sleeve. I know it’s Uncharted 3, but I just don’t know how SUPERB it’s gonna be, cause it will be.

I got all my friends hooked on this game, as well as Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Will be checking NaughtyDog.com daily. I am going through single campaign 2nd time around and have only 1 chapter to go.

And October 16th I will fire up multilayer and kick some ass. Once again thank you for creating such an amazing game.

Thanks Arne! I really would like a copy of that picture. I was told at the event they would post it on the blog, but it never was. I just want to post it to my FaceBook to brag to my friends that I won the tournament. Thanks again!

@B-RadGfromOV

I totally agree. If this keeps happening, what is even the point of buying it when it comes out? We should all just wait a year for a better edition to come along with the freebies.

    The GOTY Edition release does not include the Uncharted 2 Sidekick Skin Pack or the PS3 Dynamic Theme.

I’d also still love to have a LAN patch for this game, or at the very least consider adding LAN to Uncharted 3 while it’s in development.

Really happy for you guys but for us who supported you all the way you could show us some love. For example I own every piece of that DLC but didn’t buy the limited edition. So I suggest you give the golden guns for free to the people who have been supporting you trough all the way or at least make them available for purchase in the PSN store. This is all I’m asking.

Sweet! I was going to buy Uncharted 2 now after finishing Uncharted 1 on normal, but this makes me want it a lot more. Great job and a game that actually has the right to put “Game of The Year” on it as many other games have a edition the same, but wasn’t game of the year.

Would you consider offering a “super voucher” to be sold separately for those who already have the game?

+ thewindowsguy on September 28th, 2010 at 1:51 pm said:

Do you think they’ll bring down the price to encourage more people to buy it or is it going to stay pricey. I’m still waiting for it to go down in price.

It’s been four months since I bought PS3, but I didn’t bought Uncharted 2 because I always had feeling that a GOTY edition where all the DLCs included will be available. And the time has finally come. Thank you very much NaughtyDog Devs. You deserve all the glory for this great game.

I have a question: Will this come to Europe?
I don’t mind to import it but if it comes to EU, I’ll wait since it’ll save me from the shipping cost. And thanks again.

+ Sneeky_Sam on September 28th, 2010 at 2:25 pm said:

ok, Arne Meyer while you answering some answers, can you explain to me, why is uncharted 2 unplayable for a few players, and for me especially. i bought skins and maps and when i get online to play it tends to freeze my player until i get killed. its very annoying which was the main reason why i never played the game since; i still have it because its a awesome game but its just collecting dust…. shame =(


128

+ angelspawn77 on September 28th, 2010 at 2:26 pm said:

Absolutely awesome! Too bad I already have this amazing game though(since day 1 :D). I would have loved the GotY edition, either way congrats on an awesome game! I see what you guys did thar, you guys are releasing the game exactly a year later again. I will definitely be on with all the special playlists and here’s hoping Uncharted 3 comes out soon and raises the bar once again.

+ taehyunnie on September 28th, 2010 at 3:06 pm said:

Thats great to hear, I’m sure with Batman, Fallout 3, and Borderlands having their own GOTY editions, it was inevitable to have Uncharted 2 with its own GOTY. I really want to try out siege mode, but people i know didnt play U2, hopefully they’ll buy this. Actually I just want the Fortune Hunter edition ;)


133

+ nickjd331 on September 28th, 2010 at 3:09 pm said:

One of the best games I have ever played. 3.8 million seems not too bad for a PS3 exclusive, however of course you deserve a lot more, hopefully this edition will help with that.

I can’t wait for some of this new content I have been hearing about, or third instalment…

    + Arne Meyer on September 28th, 2010 at 3:57 pm said:

    I don’t have specific numbers, it’s a pretty solid estimate based on all the various figures reported by the various publishers and developers (press releases, financial statements, announcements, etc.). As such, it wouldn’t take too much for some games to swap places on an ordered list.

    Digging through some internet searches some more, pretty certain we’re actually the third best-selling first-party game on the platform. Still happy about it!

Question: I live in Canada and was wondering if I’ll be able to pre-order this from Amazon(dot)ca. I looked on the American Amazon site and didn’t find it there either though, so am I just being premature?

    I don’t see it on Amazon.ca yet either, however it is available at the US Amazon.com store if you include game of the year edition in your search. We just announced this morning – I’m told it can take anywhere from minutes up to a couple of days for all the retailers to have their product pages up.

I already have the Siege pack, so if I bought the GOTY version, the super voucher would still work to unlock the rest of the stuff right?

I only ask because sometimes when you buy a single map pack on the PS Store, it locks you out of buying bundles that include the pack you already bought.
