A couple of weeks ago we posted the news that Uncharted 2 was expanding again with its biggest DLC release to date. This add-on content features two new maps, six new multiplayer skins, one new co-op game type and 11 new Trophies all for the paltry amount of £4.79/€5.99 and will feature in today’s store update.
Siege cooperative game type
An arena co-op game type where two to three players defend a marked territory within a map against waves of NPC opponents. At the end of every round, the territory will change locations within the map and the NPC opponents will increase in difficultly. The only way you can score co-op points is to have all your players within the captured territory, all while being assaulted by NPC opponents.
It’s not just about the amazing new game mode though, as Naughty Dog have been hard at work with two new 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.
The DLC should be available when the store updates, but you can download title update 1.07 update the next time you fire the game up, this update will not only pre-load the DLC (ensuring compatibility between the those who have it and those who don’t) but also contains some glitch fixes:
- Players can now select a Hero skin through their online profile for Co-op Arena matches only
- Additional spawn system changes to enhance spawn point update effectiveness
- Gameplay changes to prevent “airwalk” exploit by players
- Updates to map geometry collision detection to improve prevention of players attempting to leave normal multiplayer map boundaries
All round, a great sounding addition to a great game and if that wasn’t enough content for your pennies then there is also six extra multiplayer skins and eleven Trophies which we detailed in our announcement post.
