2009 was a great year for video games but one game stood above the rest: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Receiving numerous Game of the Year Awards and standing as many gamers’ favorite from 2009, Uncharted 2 is now being given the Game of the Year edition treatment.
Released on October 12th, this new retail version of the game packs an already fantastic game with more content than you can shake a stick. Okay you actually can’t shake a stick at any of it because it is all of Uncharted’s previous DLC content, but hey it is a $35 dollar deal packed in one game. Here’s a list of all DLC and extra bonuses that will be available to gamers through a voucher:
- PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack
- Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Multiplayer Pack
- Uncharted 2 Siege Expansion Pack
- Currency Multiplier which grants Double XP up to level 10 in Multiplayer
- Golden Guns option for the AK-47 and the 92FS 9mm pistol for use in Multiplayer
- Early access to “Revenge” Booster — you still have to purchase it with in-game cash!
- Uncharted: Eye of Indra — Motion Comic Bundle (which includes Episodes 1-4)
- Uncharted: Eye of Indra — Rika Raja and Daniel Pinkerton Character Skins
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves — Avatar Pack 1
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves — Avatar Pack 2
- Uncharted Avatar Pack 3
- Uncharted Avatar Pack 4
- Pinball Heroes — UNCHARTED for the PSP
As an added bonus, on October 16th, gamers will be able to join in a celebration for the one year anniversary of the game’s release by partaking in a compilation of the multiplayer’s best game types chosen from previous episodes of 'The Lab'. Even some lucky gamers will be able to go toe to toe with the developers at Naughty Dog.
For a game that already is a rewarding experience in and of itself, including all of the previously released DLC is simply the icing on the cake. Had Among Thieves not even included multiplayer, it still would have been one of 2009’s standouts, but the fact that it did created an even richer game and kept me playing long after several playthroughs of the single player.
If you haven’t played Uncharted 2: Among Thieves yet, then we highly recommend you pick up this Game of the Year Edition. Nathan Drake is video game’s Indiana Jones; smart, sarcastic, and fire arm capable. What's not to love?
Any Ranters out there looking forward to picking up the Game of the Year Edition of Uncharted 2? Anybody out there who hasn’t played this game?
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition will be available October 12th on the PlayStation 3.
