EDGE Reveals New Uncharted 2 Info
As much as we can't stand EDGE, we have to admit, we're pretty damn envious that they got eyes-on time with Naughty Dog's hotly anticipated Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The game took center-stage in the latest issue of the publication, and we've got a few new details due to that in-depth feature.
First off, we know a lot of you are a little concerned about all the stealth talk. It was earlier revealed that stealth would be a new element in this sequel, which caused some knee-jerk reactions from some gamers who immediately assumed the game would play more like Metal Gear Solid, or something. But this "stealth mechanic" is nothing like that; it won't change the basic gameplay foundation we had in the original Uncharted. According to the article, "stealth just gives you something more in the toolbox - another element, another choice that's available to you. Stealth or shooting - both choices are valid at any time." Secondly, we now hear that this next entry will focus a little more on Drake himself, who we learn can be "affable and charming" but can also be "a jerk." Well, we all have our little flaws, right? Thirdly and lastly, Nathan is not on a quest for Francis Drake; as some of you already know, he will focus on Marco Polo. On his journey back from visiting the court of Kublai Khan (son of Genghis, if you're wondering), Marco Polo's 600-man fleet shockingly dropped to around a dozen survivors...
So that's just a taste of what we have to look forward to towards the end of the year. We don't know about you, but we adored the original (shared Game of the Year honors in 2007 with God of War II) so of course, our expectations for the sequel are through the roof. And yet, we have confidence that Naughty Dog will deliver on all accounts!
