In line with the US PlayStation Network store update, Sony has made all the paid Uncharted 2: Among Thieves’ downloadable content completely free. Developed by Naughty Dog, it is an action-adventure platform video game about the physically adept character Nathan Drake.
The story revolves around the protagonist, as he tries to stop war criminal Zoran Lazaveric from acquiring the Cintamani Stone. Although it is a sequel to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the game developer pointed out it is a standalone adventure, and has nothing to do with the previous game.
Drake’s Fortune Multiplayer Pack
The Drake’s Fortune Multiplayer Pack, which was previously available for $2.99, contains six skins namely UDF Drake, UDF Elena, Eddy Raja, Javier, Atoq Navarro and Gabriel Roman. It has two large set maps, The Facility and the Flooded Ruins, from Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune title. In addition, the game has 12 PSN trophies and 13 medals.
Golden Guns Pack
Previously priced at $0.99, the Golden Guns Pack was first released on December 2010. This DLC contains gold skins for the AK-47 and Beretta weapons.
PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack
Originally released on January 2010, the PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack contains Sev and a Helghast soldier from Killzone 2. It also has Resistance series’ Nathan Hale and Chimera, and the good and evil Coles together with Zeke of inFamous. It was previously priced at $2.49.
Siege Expansion Pack
The Siege Expansion Pack was released on April 2010 for $1.49. It contains the Siege co-op multiplayer mode, two multiplayer maps, ten bronze PSN trophies and one silver PSN trophy. It also has six character skins, two of which are from Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
Sidekick Skins Pack
The Sidekick Skins Pack was previously priced at $1.49, and it is something that supporters of the Game of the Year edition could be waiting for. It contains six alternate appearances of previously available characters, plus two new villain skins—Dillon and Mac.
On the other hand, it seems that the Eye of Indra pack is missing. Nevertheless, it’s nice to see older games getting a little bit of a boost—especially Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which was great online. There are also no words yet whether the free DLCs will be available in Europe after the EU PSN store update.
For Uncharted 2 gamers in the US who don’t have the DLC yet, now is the great time to give the title another go. The free add-ons are available for download at the PlayStation Network store. Just simply head on to the “special offer” section or check the game’s add-on area. There’s no need to rush though because it appears to be a permanent price drop in the country.
