Naughty Dog: Co-Op Expansion For Uncharted 2 Possible
Obviously, competitive multiplayer is where it's at for most people, but we still need the more civilized co-op modes, too.
Although the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves online multiplayer isn't quite as popular as other gigantic titles, many have seemed to gravitate towards the co-op because it's just so damn fun. And if you've enjoyed such entertainment in the past, you'll be happy to know that Naughty Dog may expand on the co-op content with future DLC. This according to boss man Evan Wells in a recent G4 interview, where the hinting is obvious:
"So for future DLC, could we add more co-op? Probably more in the arena-style type of gameplay, like our Survival and our Gold Rush modes. The objective-style co-op that we have where we have those little narrative moments...it's something that we are considering and we'd really like to do, but it's a much, much bigger investment of time because we have to do a lot of motion capture with the actors and record a lot of voices. So we would absolutely want make sure that we talk to our community and make sure there was the proper demand for it."
Woah...what are we looking at here? More dialogue and story pieces in the co-op portions? Wouldn't that add a great deal of flavor and appeal to a game that thrives on the single-player experience to begin with? It would further entice those who have been reluctant to go online in the past, primarily because this could really feel a lot like the regular offline adventure...only with a few friends along for the ride. Oh, there's always so much goodness associated with this game.
