Game Informer To Officially Unveil Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was one of the best games of 2007 and also one of our personal favorites, so we're all kinds of excited to report the first details of the much-anticipated sequel.

We knew Naughty Dog was planning to do another Uncharted title quite some time ago, but the official unveiling now comes courtesy of Game Informer, which will feature Uncharted 2: Among Theives on the cover of the next issue. The 2008 Video Game Awards on Spike has a special debut teaser, too, which is something you'll probably want to see. The Game Informer article will be 10 pages worth of breaking information and details, as Nathan Drake returns to set out on a new adventure with legendary explorer Marco Polo at the center of the story. We only have a few early gameplay details, but we know the developers are adding new elements of stealth plus a "free climbing mechanic;" both of which will require more elaboration. As far as we're concerned, they could just use the same gameplay mechanic found in the first title and give us an all-new story and environment...that'd make us happy enough. But we have to applaud devs for taking another step, and besides, reviewers these days are all anal about sequels being "innovative" in some way ('cough' Edge 'cough').

Okay, so now it's time to put Uncharted 2: Among Thieves atop your "most-anticipated" list, and cross your fingers that Naughty Dog will issue a release date soon. And be sure to stay tuned for any and all new developments, which we'll be sure to provide you with.

I pretty much froze and crapped my pants when I first heard this. Not only was the first one of my favorite games ever, but just imagine what they might do with the second... ahh I can see the nice dreams I'm going to have already, lol.

@eba101; Co-op would be sweet! It's all it really needs. No deathmatch, tdm, ctf crap, just coop plain and simple, both online and off.

Unlocked galleries in the prequel pretty much confirm online play for the sequel. I'm pleasently psyched about this one.

They should use the eight days engine to improve the medicore cover system of the first.

shooting mechanics and the feel and sound of the guns.

add in online and offlinecoop so i can play with my friends and psn friends.

upgrade the graphics slightyly so there a noticible graphics improvement.

improve the freakin easy puzzles and climbing.

and finally put in a show scene with that journerlist chick with blonde hair.

i just finished the game yeterday and it was amazing ,the church and all the gun battles in it were awesome.
all i want them to do in the sequel is to remove the minor visual glitches , improve the shooting cause it was a bit off the mark and increase the game length .

I loved Uncharted. Naughty Dog is very good at adding to and improving gameplay in sequels so there is a 99.999% chance that Uncharted 2 will blow me away and a 100% chance that I will enjoy it.

Stealth and Free Climbing sounds cool. I want to see these elements in action.

How about go buy MGS then?
Only tried the demo of Uncharted, but it blew me away.
I really don't know why i never bought it. But I definitely buy them both when Among Thieves releases!!

I loved the trailer I saw it yesterday and it looks good. The snow looked a little lack luster but I realize that this is the very first video and the only direction to go in is up. And don't get me wrong the snow wasn't bad so I am enthralled at the possibilities for this sequel and its visual aspects. Hopefully they clean up the lighting a little more and polish the game off just a little more than the first and I will be in heaven.

Funny Story:

My friend that I met when this Fall semester started recently revealed to me that he was a xbot. We got into a debate about the console war after I mentioned that all I did during a previous weekend was play my PS3.

He interrupted, "Man, PS3 is garbage. 360 is so much better." I was like, "Wow. 'Et tu, friend?' You're an xbot?" Anyways, we eventually got on what games I play. I mentioned Uncharted and how it's awesome, and how it was all that I played late last year. He said something stupid and completely made up, "Man, they're not even gonna make an Uncharted 2." Of course, I asked why. "Because Uncharted 1 didn't sell enough."

I immediately stopped talking to him after that. I knew for a fact that Naughty Dog was working on a sequel. And that Uncharted 1 sold a million in 10 weeks. He had that please believe me look on his face. What a tool.

Anyways, I'm very excited about this announcement. Uncharted 2 is gonna rock. I like how Drake was covered in snow, similar to when Drake's clothes got wet in Uncharted 1.

Good trailer, although I hope the music in the trailer isn't in the full game. Unless they incorporate it in a better way.

And Drake looks like Navarro now. Not saying I don't like it, I'm just saying it'll take time to get used to it. But with how good the first one was, I'll be happy with whatever they do to the second game.

I made the mistake of completing Uncharted 1 then trading it in then decided I wanted it again and went out and rebought it back again for cheaper than I originally paid for it lol. I did the same with ICO too (what an idiot lol)

Cant wait for this one loved the 1st one too. That dagger looks ace. the snow effects looked good too. Another one to be added to the list, Assassins Creed 2, God of War 2, Killzone 2, Unchartered 2, Little Big Planet 2 (heard a rumour somewhere), maybe Street Fighter 4 Resident Evil 5 I am sure I have missed one someplace, roll on 2009 :)

This looks AWESOME!
Remember the visual/gameplay jump from Crash Bandicoot to Crash 2? Or Crash 3? Or the huge increase in awesome in each iteration of the Jak series? If i know NaughtyDog, Uncharted 2 is going to blow the pants off of all of us, especially considering how great the first one was.
