Seeing how these were the same people that handled Among Thieves I can't help but be psyched !! They handled the multiplayer pretty well and well the story..It was SUPERB. I trust in them and know what they come up with well be good.

Not really.. Amy Henning supervised the story in all the Uncharted's, and a good number of the people who made multiplayer in 2 stayed for 3.

But still in Naughty Dog we trust. Very excited for this game

Hopefully, any other mode wouldn't really make sense based on the game trailers.

Nah, they could probably have a competitive mode where it will be survivors vs survivors or survivors vs infected but i don't know.

Of course it's going to have online support. The game industry knows that is where more income can come from and where gamers spend most of their time. Whether people like it or not we are going more and more in the direction of always being connected online.

Nintendo, and Japan in general, has been the most reluctant to go this route. Now it shows just how far western gaming has come in comparison when it comes to online gaming.

Ok, thats worrying.

If there was a game that totally doesnt need MP this is it. And "some kind of Multiplayer" sounds like the very definition of tacked on.

smashcrashbash2137d ago

Same thing they said about UC2.'UC2 totally doesn't need MP.Adding MP will just be tacked on and ruin the SP'. And the rest is history.

I initially agreed with your thoughts myself, but if you read the quote, he specifically omits emphasis of "online" from the multiplayer they're including. It's really hard to imagine what kind of experience they're going to go for, since we don't even know anything about the game, really, but I'd imagine they're working on the multiplayer aspect in a way complimentary to the game.

Game director Bruce Straley said it's going to be awesome :p

"we're working on a bunch of ideas, but we haven't nailed anything down. We definitely know it's going to be awesome."

Bathyj2137d ago (Edited 2137d ago )

Its a completely different game to Uncharted. Uncharted is an action adventure. This game doesnt look like that to me.

It would be like putting MP in Shadow of the Colossus.

But, I should say, I have complete faith in ND. It will be great for sure.

Rockefellow2137d ago

Funnily enough... Shadow of the Colossus BEGAN as a multiplayer title.

Nimblest-Assassin2137d ago

Well we have to wait and see right? I agree with smashcrashbash... U2 and U3 mp are awesome..

I'll give you a good example... Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood... when I heard it would have mp I scoffed saying it doesn't need it...

Then I saw it and I went OMGWTFBBQ...I was so hooked, looked up every bit of info on it, watched every shaky cam vid of it... pre ordered it so I could be in the beta...

It was one of the best MP's of 2010... my personal fav was RDR, thanks to the amount of fun I had with my friends playing it over the summer

Co-op in Uncharted games wasn't bad... I could see it possibly working in this.

Please no versus though...
