So you've finished the recently released Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for the Sony PlayStation 3 and have come away with the experience with a hunger for more content. It's only natural. Lucky for you, it's also natural for a major game to follow-up with some new material delivered via the PlayStation Store. Developer Naughty Dog's Amy Hennig has spilled the beans on Uncharted 2's upcoming downloadable content, although she manages to side-step the question without answering it directly. Kombo has the details.
"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," [Hennig] says. "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."
New multiplayer deathmatch maps seem inevitable in this instance (but no new co-op levels, sadly), but as someone who enjoyed the main single-player mode of the game over the chaotic multiplayer rooms packed with profane idiots, I'd love to see a few additional chapters that serve as an epilogue to Nathan Drake's latest adventure. Think of it as Uncharted's answer to Half-Life. I'd certainly buy an Uncharted 2: Episode 1 if such a thing were available.
