What more reason could you want to play Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
? I’m not quite sure, because somehow I haven’t gotten a copy myself. Nevertheless, a new DLC (or expansion pack) will be coming to the PlayStation Network on April 22nd to give you (and myself) some more reason. It will feature a co-op add-on, 2 multiplayer maps, 6 skins, and 11 trophies.
Co-op is where the pack gets its name – Siege. It will involve fighting off waves of AI enemies while you defend your marked territory. Take a look at some screenshots and character renderings below for a glimpse at Siege, and The Highrise and Museum maps. Read on for details, too.
Co-op Game Type
Pits 2 or 3 players against the AI.
Objective: capture and hold the territory against the waves of increasingly difficult AI adversaries. All players must be in the territory to capture it, so it’s a constant battle to keep the AI from assaulting the player’s position.
Players compete in one territory per round and the territory changes location every round.
2 Multiplayer Maps
Towering over the streets of Nepal, The Highrise is a map with plenty of opportunities for players to get the high ground on their opponents. Set on a series of destroyed and under-construction buildings, players need to be on their toes as there are many different jump locations and paths around the map. Players should also watch out for the incoming airstrikes, as they can clear the rooftops in seconds.
Set at dusk amongst the courtyards and display cases at the site of Drake and Flynn’s heist, The Museum provides players with a mix of intense gameplay covering traversing across rooftops, dodging gunfire through twisting corridors, and close quarters fighting. Players need to watch their backs as there are numerous flank routes in all parts of this circular map. Players should also learn the secret climbing routes that will allow them to get the drop on their opponents.
