New Uncharted 2 DLC coming in February


The fantastic Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is about to get even better with the announcement that a huge DLC pack is coming very soon. The DLC pack will include new maps, skins, multiplayer medals and also new trophies. The pack will be released on February 25th 2010 but we are not sure if this is for the UK as well as only the US have had confirmed pricing of the DLC at this present time which is $5.99 for everything included, $2,99 for the skins and $3.99 for the map pack. Whether this will be released at the same time as the US, we are not sure but we can’t imagine there being a huge wait for UK fans of the game to get their hands on the brand new content but at present, no release date or pricing has been announced. The new DLC is also based around Nathan Drake’s first outing in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

Here is a teaser video for the new DLC content for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves –

Justin Richmond, Naughty Dog multiplayer designer has said that the team started working on the huge update as soon as the team finished up making the first game –
