Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Single-Player Demo and PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack DLC

Arne Meyer on Playstation Blog writes: "Many of you have been waiting anxiously for news and details about the downloadable content we at Naughty Dog have been working on and we have been saying you'll hear about it "soon." Well, soon is finally here.

You may have gotten a glimpse of this initial DLC release as part of some news that made its rounds around the internet yesterday, but that wasn't the full story.

So, what is going to be available on the PlayStation Network Store on January 28, you ask?

Thanks to our friends at Guerilla Games, Insomniac Games and Sucker Punch Productions, we've been able to a pull off something unique within the UNCHARTED 2 competitive multiplayer modes – our first DLC release is the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack."

Can't wait to play the single player demo

Double073192d ago

I wonder what section the demo will be from?

Probably chapter 5 I reckon.

And the new skins look pretty damn sweet.

The_Devil_Hunter3192d ago

Dont play the demo just buy the game, you will regret nothing.

Blaze9293192d ago

As if you need a demo to warrant a purchase form Uncharted 2. What the heck are/were you waiting for? A demo? Really? It was GOTY 2009 - 'nuff said.

gaffyh3191d ago

Hopefully the demo pushes more casual gamers, or those not in the know, to buy Uncharted 2. I mean I for one know that when I played Uncharted 1 I was AMAZED at the graphics, and UC2 is EVEN better.

OpenGL3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

It's good that Naughty Dog is releasing a demo as it will likely help sales somewhat. I find it unusual though that someone who is posting on a gaming site and owns a PS3 is still undecided on Uncharted 2. Any gamer with the opportunity to play the game really should.

I thought the demo was the one from the stores. the chapter where you shoot the truck coming at you, in nepal.

PS360PCROCKS3191d ago

The demo is the 3rd level where you run from the truck down the alley and than into that clearing and hide from those guys as the truck comes down and runs them over. Its the same one that's in the stores I'm sure.

starvinbull3191d ago

Awesome. Such a good idea.

MyBlasterRunsHot3191d ago

They need Kratos with a gun like Ironstar's GOTY video

saint_john_paul_ii3191d ago

Kratos with a gun O_o

that would make him more bad a**. I would like to see that.

might as well get get Kojima/Konami/UBISOFT to bring in Snake and Ezio/Altair into the game as skins. I would actually pay for that too

Rumor3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

@pope paul

actually, kratos is already badass because he DOESNT use guns.

in the words of the joker: "you know why i dont use guns? because you cant savor all the little emotions."

basically, brutally dismembering mythological creatures with the blades of chaos is better than running and gunning them :/

OT: nice dlc, thought it was free though :(

Ravage273191d ago

That level has to be the prettiest thing i've ever seen in gaming and i'm sure it will leave a mindblowing impression to newcomers.

shawnsl653191d ago

If Kratos was in this game, he wouldn't need a gun PFF!

He would be limited to using a hunting knife, because that's all he needs to kill some mofos.. that's how BADASS he is!

Killzone 2, Resistance, and inFamous skins for Uncharted 2 online multiplayer? This is seriously the best DLC Ive ever seen on any platform.

The_Devil_Hunter3192d ago

Though some Kratos thrown in there sounds even better. Hmph.

gerol3192d ago

i wish theres also other PlayStation heroes available sometime.. like Kratos, Nariko, Solid Snake, Cloud haha too many to mention well im just hoping :D

Redempteur3192d ago

do you really want to see kratos with a gun ??

i certainly don't ...

BeaArthur3192d ago (Edited 3192d ago )

It would be the best DLC ever if it was free. There is no chance I am paying 3.99 for some multiplayer skins. Extra maps and game modes, sure I'll shell out some money for that but not for some freaking costumes.

ThatArtGuy3191d ago

still goes to Burnout Paradise in my opinion.

lh_swe3191d ago

If not then I agree Burnout takes the price.

PirateThom3192d ago

As noted on the EU blog... I liked the idea of this more when the skins were free.

Paying for them just doesn't strike me as a sensible purchase.

Unless there was a Solid Snake skin on the go.

I'll wait for some extra maps or co-op campaigns. I love you ND, but not for 3.99 for 6 skins.

Solidus187-SCMilk3192d ago

I was looking forward to the free skins and wont be paying for them even though they look cool

I WILL however pay for more maps, as thats what I really want.

OH and a free-for-all mode would be great.

BeaArthur3192d ago

Agree 100%, not paying $4 for my character to look different. Sounds a lot like horse armor.

webeblazing3191d ago

thats one thing i like about ps fan base over ms ps fan base never like giving up money easily ( to either side im not saying all) with games, dlc, service, accessories, etc. (idk thats maybe y their community is more diverse with the genre they buy and standards they want they game to be )

Solidus187-SCMilk3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

look at all the people here willing to buy the skins. There will always be people willing to buy something that your not.

I have a 360 and ps3 but only buy DLCs I find worth the money. Everyone has different feelings on what is worth their money, and it has nothing to do with ps3 vs 360 people like you try to imply.

krouse933191d ago

It's actually 7 skins.

And they already gave us a free map.

webeblazing3191d ago

yea you got a point i was wrong just when i bee talkin to people online and friends thats where it usually seem like i was wrong for saying that even tho i dont see a value in this im sure other do

Sarcasm3191d ago

If any company is worth buying DLC from, it's Naughty Dog.

Myst3192d ago

Personally wouldn't buy the skins ( but I know some people who would love to so congrats for them when and if they get it ). Though as for myself I shall wait on the maps and co-op expansion if one is to come. Though until then I can have fun with the one we have now, seems like people are starting to play that more now it seems.

Redempteur3192d ago

i might take the skins AFTER the co-op maps comes ...

Now naughty dog should raise the max level for online too :)

theunknown3192d ago

Maybe you can look at as a 5 dollar tip?

Redempteur3191d ago

I really don't care about the skin i use in the uncharted multiplayer

they are all equally beautifull

fOrlOnhOpe573192d ago

how about a sackboy skin - growly face and a RPG lol
