While this may not come as a surprise for some of you – as part of Naughty Dog’s continuing support of our multiplayer community, we’re glad to say we’ve got some new UNCHARTED 2 DLC on the way real soon!

Like, next week soon.

UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Skins: Chloe

On Tuesday, August 17, the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Sidekick Skins pack will be available for purchase with the PlayStation Store. After the last two sets of multiplayer skins we released, we heard that you wanted more Sully, more Chloe and more Elena (among many, many other things) – and that’s exactly what we put into the pack. Not to neglect the villains team, we also threw in two enemy characters from UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune – Dillon and Mac – who complete the set we started with Blain and Dutch.

UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Skins: Sullivan UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Skins: Dillion

UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Skins: Mac UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Skins: Elena

The UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Sidekick Skins Pack includes the following multiplayer characters:

  • Heist Chloe
  • Borneo Chloe
  • Borneo Sullivan
  • UDF Sullivan
  • Winter Sullivan
  • Wetsuit Elena
  • Dillon
  • Mac

On the same day, we’re also releasing an UNCHARTED 2 Dynamic Theme for your PS3. As you can see from the screenshots and the embedded video, the Dynamic Theme features a scene from Chapter 15 – Train Wrecked, when a critically injured Nathan Drake is high up in the mountains, stumbling through the snow away from the train wreck he survived to recover the Phurba Dagger.

The UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Sidekick Skin Pack will be released on the PlayStation Store on August 17 for only $2.99 for the 8 skins. The UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Dynamic Theme will be released on the same day $2.99 as well.

  • I love the kind of support you give this game

  • Is there anything Naughty Dog cant do? lol :)

  • wow, those skins are cheap compared to the other ones released before! i might have to pick those up.

  • Looks fun,certainly wasn’t expecting more Multiplayer skins, and its a fairly nice set, and nicely priced as well. Might be the last thing I get before going to college, thanks. I hope this means we still have more DLC yet to see.

  • That’s great news, I’m really looking forward to this. :)

    Keep it up Naughty Dog!

  • Any promotion for plus members?

  • StrykerIsland

    Does the Dynamic Theme change at all depending on the time or date?

    • Arne Meyer

      No, it unfortunately does not. What you see in the video is pretty much what you get

  • I already have too many skin, put another guest character like Kratos and you have a buy

  • Oh this is awesome. No bundle with both Skins and Theme?!

  • Keep up the good work ND :)

  • Me Wanty Dynamic Theme Now! :D

  • omg I love this game to death
    just got a gamer gasim

  • There is a VERY good chance I’ll be buying this dynamic theme. Other dynamic themes could learn from this. =)

  • BigBangBear

    Would love a promotion for Plus members although I doubt it will happen. Great to see the continued support for this game. Always enjoy popping it back in now and again.

  • dehumanizer_666

    hmm looks cool and all but the theme is really boring.

  • I will be getting this i have all of your guy’s dlc and i don’t plan to stop getting them cause i really enjoy what u bring but it would be cool if u put jax in the game that would be cool:).

  • Any chance we can get more more images? Because I can’t remember what UDF Sully looks like.

  • No stupid MP trophies please. Thank you.

  • Only Dynamic theme I will be buying, I loved both games.

  • Dragonzblaze

    im so buying the dynamic theme its pure awesome ty ND

  • Dynamic theme is awesome!

  • Totally buying both. Hopefully you can release more dynamic themes? I’d love to see the streets of Nepal!

  • any chance of bundling the theme and the DLC for 5.99?

  • Wow, great price, and really great that the Devs. are still working on this title. One of my favorite games. I wish you guys add Kratos as a skin one day!

  • Looks cool.

    @24 why the bundle? it’s $3 each?

  • NoobHunter91

    I knew this game would get more stuff.. Keep it up! Love uncharted

  • @24 scorpio182
    why not?
    I only have about $6.50 in my account and would like to buy both but $6.50 will not cover both after tax

  • @Arne Meyer
    Thanks for the response Arne Meyer.

  • I appreciate the continued support, believe me. However, I wish you would put more effort into the load times. I’ve bought the add ins so far, but what would make this game stand above the rest is a load time similar to a Call of Duty type game.

  • Love the theme. Definitely gonna pick it up. Can’t wait to hear about what you guys are working on now… (Big mystery, I know.)

  • Oh THATS UDF?

    Guess it was Borneo Sully that I couldn’t remember. Thanks, Arne!

  • If you use amazon’s downloadable service you will not have to pay tax, though I’m not sure if they sell DLC.

  • Oh and as far as this DLC goes? I’ll buy it to A) Support a brilliant dev team and B) to enjoy Elena’s wetsuit sexiness!

  • mywhitenoise

    Ive been playing this game again, and LOVE it. When I’m finished with the single player, I’ll probably buy the 2 map packs.

    I cannot wait for the third game! It’s got a lot to live up to, but I have faith in Naughty Dog. I loved the first game (bought it day 1), but you guys truly made something special with Uncharted 2.

  • Finally more skins for Sully!! I once asked you about this, we got tired of getting so many Drake skins while Sully and Tenzin have just one, but now we’ll be able to choose 4 skins for Sully. What’s up next, Arne? Hatless Tenzin maybe?

  • StrykerIsland

    Dynamic Themes are great, but I really hope that one day Sony unveils a plan to open them up to greater resources. It’s obvious the file size needs to be microscopic in order to get them in there, I’d love to see more varied, less repetitive themes where you can look forward to random goodies each time you turn on your system.

    It’s tough to justify paying 2.99 for one single repeating animation.

    Uncharted still rocks the house though, keep up the good work folks.

    • Arne Meyer

      We’re actually no limited to filesize but rather the amount of memory/processing we can use to run all the various effects — fog, scrolling, 3D, animation, snow, etc. It’s just a matter of learning how to squeeze more and more out of those limited resources. But for how “simple” our theme looks, it’s still relatively technically involved — our snow and fog are actually full particle effects.

  • That theme is so sweet!

  • JetSetFuture

    That’s one very “cool” dynamic theme. (Did you see what I did there?) I’ll make sure to get it in time for winter.

  • Could you people please add to that sidekick skin pack a double money experience? That would be like the icing on the cake!!!

    Thanks for the continuous support for the game!!!

  • big fan of the game but the theme SUCKS. Drake stumbling through snow. Yay! Amazing!

    No. You could have done something else, for example gunfire scenes or scenery. Instead we get a bland animation of Drake walking through snow. Looks like this was made in an hour, no offense ND.

    • Arne Meyer

      This actually took us several weeks of work to get something that looks great quality wise and has all that we’re trying to do with it — scrolling, the Drake model and great animation, the particle effects of the fog and snow. Definitely wasn’t easy by any means.

  • Holy Cow! Did the wetsuits say “Ottsel” on them in Drake’s Fortune? I can’t believe I didn’t notice that before.

  • OMG! That is FREAKING SICK! I can’t wait.

  • Those look great, nice theme too.

  • I like the theme but creators have to remember that PS3 text is white when they’re creating these themes. I see so many that would be good except they have white where the words are which ruins it because you can’t see.

    • Arne Meyer

      Since the text is always white, that’s what we were looking at when developing the Dynamic Theme — so we made sure it was readable. Even though our theme has relatively light colors, you can definitely see the menu text.

  • I like the theme.

  • About time you gave us an Uncharted Dynamic theme!

  • Wow, next Tuesday? Thanks for not making us wait a month in advance *cough* stimulus package *cough*.

    Also, will they be sold as a bundle?

  • IrishPete333

    I never buy Dynamic Themes, but I think I will buy this one just to support one of my favorite developers! Keep up the great great work you people at ND are doing.
