Uncharted 2: More Multiplayer Details

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by

Sr. Social Media Manager

After yesterday’s big Uncharted 2 announcement, I’m sure you’ve got lots of questions. Once the co-op and competitive modes were revealed to the media last week, I know I did. Fortunately, I was able to grab quite a few minutes with Justin Richmond, game designer with Naughty Dog. We chatted about Uncharted 2‘s modes, how melee translates into multiplayer, and the presence of Elena and Sully.

Now, we didn’t forget about *your* questions for Naughty Dog. Chris‘ll have that video for you soon.

Jeff would it be possible for like in a future interview, you could find out about the control system. As far as when it come to Drake dive rolling & taking cover??? As many of us know who played the game, O was for taking cover as well as for dive rolling. For rolling on the ground you would have to be in a foward motion.

But as all of us know. Many time in the heat of a battle you attempt a roll and b/c you happen to be near any object or wall. Drake would many time take cover. Which only resulted in getting shot up. Cause what you’ve just dont is basically stand or squat RIGHT IN FRONT of an enemy in plain site.

I would like to see that they change this seperate buttons for each action. One for rolling and one for cover. Please?

Will there be Custom soundtracks for the Online modes

It was one of the nice little surprizes in Killzone2


April 28th, 1:32 pm

Jeff, how can we get the beta other then purchasing inFamous?

I was looking forward Uncharted 2. On the other hand, like any game without multiplayer I would only buy it 6 months after it got released or until I would find a bargain. With all this polished multiplayer news it just turned into a pre-order.

Hey Jeff I would like to thank you for moving the blog posts pack a few for when we here on the East coast get back from work/school, it’s really helpful. :)

Uncharted 2 will be AWESOME!!!
Nuff Said

April 28th, 1:37 pm


You’ve got time…

Will you be able to play co-op offline with a friend? Please say yes.

Enigma777 said:

April 28th, 1:38 pm

This looks beyond awesome!!! I cannot wait! Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is my favorite game for the PS3 and the sequel looks like it might be my favorite game of all time!

Anyways, Jeff I really want to thank you for coming through with the Fat Princess beta code for me. I had pretty much lost all hope in getting it… Thanks a lot!

Recently played the first one and I love it. Part 2 will be a day 1 purchase.

Jezer29 said:

April 28th, 1:38 pm

Most likely. And this would be a dumb move IMO if Sony doesn’t do this, which is that they make Uncharted 1 a greatest hits title. A couple of months before release.

So fellows like # 61 could check out what all the hype is about and seal the deal for potential UC2 buyers.

eddieMX07 said:

I will most likely buy Uncharted 2, but not until I have played Drakes Fortune. And I will only buy Drakes Fortune when the the price is lowered. I still can’t be believe the game is $53 at Amazon.com after almost two years since its release. I guess the price will be lowered after the release of Uncharted 2. Anyway, I will still buy it…

Blackdragon264 said:

how awesome is the uncharted engine to handle all the cool stuff in single player and multiplayer this is def game of the year hands down. So getting this game.

Pumpkinking said:

I hope ND add “No respawn” option for their matches.

ADR143 said:

April 28th, 1:46 pm

nice interview.

hopefully the money system in multiplayer wont effect others who doesnt have wat they have.

like if u have more unlockables it doesnt mean ur unstopable

About the cinema mode feature for multiplayer games, will this have Youtube uploads for it?

almighty-slayer said:

April 28th, 1:51 pm

Thanks a lot for the interview Jeffy. Well chosen questions. Can’t wait for Chris’s post with our own questions

I was sceptical about Multiplayer in Uncharted at first, as it doesn’t strike me as the sort of game that should have it. But it looks like it will be good afterall. As long as they keep the stellar single player experience like Drake’s Fortune, i’m fine with that ;)

It would be nice to know how long the beta will run as well. If it’s running close to release than those not too interested in Infamous might get it for a beta of Uncharted 2 if it lasted a while.

Ackers11 said:

April 28th, 1:52 pm

Will there be offline co op, so 2 (or 3) players at home on the same console can play together?

billsk8 said:

April 28th, 1:53 pm

Will the voucher be bundle with infamous in canada??

KazeEternal said:

April 28th, 1:54 pm

So excited about this game. I was really excited about the single player experience, but now that this is out there I feel like my head is going to explode from all the joy lol.

Anyway do me a favor with the trophies, if you do any online trophies PLEASE make them reasonable. None of this 10k kill nonsense Resistance 2 gave us or the top 1% trophy on Kill zone 2 which is taking a week out of my life next week just to obtain.

Also will there be any opportunities to get in on the beta outside of Infamous? I’m not into sandbox titles and while Infamous looks cool I can’t justify spending Uncharted 2 money on Infamous.

SWEEET I LOVE UNCHARTED 1! this is a first day buy for sure you guys can count on that, i hope my money can also get me infamous as well in may 26

Slipping_halo said:

I have a simple question, how many players for competitive?? I heard only 10 is this true?

Crotin said:

April 28th, 2:04 pm

Great interview Jeff, I’m glad you asked about the melee system :)

Andronicus said:

April 28th, 2:04 pm

how can people hate on sony with first party titles like this? i always thought gaming was about the games.

Best first party studios & games + a few great third party exclusives + good multiplatform games. the last [DELETED] factor people have out there to hold onto is the price.

TheGodSend said:

day one buy for me!!!!

will there be an option for private servers so just you and your freinds can only play in it. And if there is, i would recommend options in the server like being able to unbalance teams turn off team damage… etc.

SolidM said:

Loving the look of MP – I’ll buy inFamous if it comes bundled with U2’s demo in Britain.

SPOPS said:

April 28th, 2:13 pm

Please tell me that there will be other ways to get into the BETA besides inFAMOUS. That game really does not appeal to me. And in this economy I am not going to spend $60 + tax on a game I don’t really want. Although I really want to check out Uncharted’s Multiplayer because I love Uncharted.

Midgetguy said:

This game is BEYOND AWESOME!!!! lol

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again:

Naughty Dog never ceases to amaze me…

Gringo234 said:

April 28th, 2:42 pm

I don’t man are you guys adding MP because it’s the current trend in gaming?

S-E-G said:

April 28th, 2:47 pm

i can’t wait for this game, these guys are my favourite game developers for sure, keep up the good work Sony and ND!!
