Today is a good day for those waiting to hear more about Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The release date and finalized box art (pictured right) have been revealed, as well as the pre-order trinkets that will be available at different retailers. It seems that Nathan Drake has traded in the shotgun toting cover for a new and hip “Oh no! I’m hanging from a ledge” cover. The Naughty Dog title will drop on October 13th, and Amazon.com, GameStop, Game Crazy and BestBuy will feature some fun pre-order goodies.
- Amazon.com will feature an exclusive treasure map which will allow you to see hidden treasures throughout the game.
- Game Crazy will reward you with an exclusive currency multiplier for multiplayer online use, basically it allows players to gain currency in the game and unlock bonuses faster for a limited time against opponents.
- GameStop will have exclusive first access to the multiplayer demo and you will be able to gain the revenge attribute (which is one of the last multiplayer upgrades you can get) from the start of the multiplayer campaign. GameStop’s multiplayer demo will start September 9th and run until September 29th, it will open to the public on September 30th and will close on the release date.
If that batch of goodies didn’t interest you, look at what Best Buy will have to offer:
The gold weapons will be available for use in multiplayer mode, and will allow you to wield some fashion sense during the death match and plunder modes. Even though there are some practical pre-order goodies to nab for Uncharted: Among Thieves, those gold guns have to take the cake, but then again, I’m easily distracted by shiny things.
