Uncharted 2 "Exceeding Expectations," DLC This Year
We just can't get enough of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and while we're perfectly happy going through it again and again (and again), we'll certainly appreciate some extra content.
But first of all, the ever-humble Naughty Dog team is still saying they're a little overwhelmed at all the success and relevant praise. During an IndustryGamers interview, creative director Amy Hennig admitted that this amazing sequel is "exceeding expectations," as the game has certainly outsold the original "by many, many times" already, and the "critical reception so far has been really gratifying." And the team isn't stopping; they plan on releasing the first set of downloadable content before the year is out. Said Hennig:
"We're working on that now, and what we're prepared to say is that there will be DLC available before the end of the year. Without going into specifics, it'll involve new maps, new characters, things like that. Some of it will be free of charge and some of it will be purchasable. We've got a lot of people on the team working on this stuff, some really cool stuff that people will be excited about. So we're definitely taking it very seriously."
Oh man, more goodness for Uncharted 2. Maybe we don't need to play another game ever. And what's this about new characters? We assume this is all pertaining to the online multiplayer but you never know...just about anything new will be awesome, and it'll give us another reason to return to the game after a break. We'll let you know as soon as Naughty Dog comes forward with those DLC details.
