Uncharted 2 Siege Expansion Pack Announced, Detailed
It was 2009's best and although the focus is squarely on the amazing single-player campaign, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves features a robust and entertaining online multiplayer mode, too.
And if you've been enjoying that aspect of the game, you'll be happy to hear about the third piece of downloadable content for Naughty Dog's gem. It's called the Siege Expansion Pack and it'll be available on the PlayStation Network on April 22. This bad boy adds 2 new multiplayer maps, 6 new skins, and a grand total of 11 new Trophies; furthermore, the Co-Op option in Siege - 2 or 3 players against the AI - ought to be a big draw. The goal will be to capture and hold the designated territory against wave upon wave of invading and increasingly difficult AI opponents. All players must be in the territory to claim it and the territory will change with every round.
As for the new maps, we'll get The Highrise, where you'll engage over the streets of Nepal on a map that will offer ample opportunity to gain the height advantage. But watch out for the air strikes, which can clear a rooftop in seconds... The second map is The Museum, which is set at dusk outside in the courtyards; it's the site of Drake and Flynn's heist, if you remember the storyline. This one apparently has it all; flanking, rooftops, close-quarters battle, secret climbing routes, etc. Both maps sound like a ton of fun.
The 6 skins are: Wetsuit Drake, Baseball Shirt Drake, Prakoso, Platzor, Glowzor, and Dead Explorer. And the 11 new Trophies are as follows; these are all Bronze:
- You Can’t Break Me – Complete all 3 co-op objective maps on Crushing
- Under Siege – Finish Wave 10 in 1 Siege game
- Speedy – Get 10 First! Medals
- I’ll Cover You – Get 50 Defender Medals
- Fallen Angel – Get 50 Afterlife Medals
- Not So Fast – Get 20 “Shut’em Down Medals
- Jack of All Trades – Get 15 Triple Threat Medals
- You Run, I’ll Shoot – Get 10 Protectorate Medals
- Back At Ya – Get 50 Retaliation Medals
- Kneel Before Z… – Get 5 Put-em Down Medals
The lone Silver Medal is Rock a Rhyme, which requires that you snag 100 Tricky Medals. Is all this enough to warrant a download come April 22? We should think so.
