The next time you log in to UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer you’ll notice that your character selection choices in your multiplayer profile have changed significantly – but only for a limited time… more on that later. You have a smaller pool of characters skins to choose from, but you’ll have 16 different versions of Drake and Flynn to choose from in the Heroes and Villians selections. Those 16 versions represent the countries whose soccer teams have made it to the second round in South Africa as of today. Since we’ve been seeing so many displays of team support across the Internet and on forums, we thought it would be cool to extend that show of fan support within UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer. So for a limited time – for two weeks or until about Monday, July 12, 2010 – you’ll be able to choose Heroes and Villians skins with the following country uniforms:
- South Korea
- United States
In order to have all these characters available, we’ve had to temporarily remove some of the characters from the selection screen. We’ve done this to ensure that all the characters that are available through paid DLC are still available. There is one piece of bad news here though – the newly added characters of Blaine and Dutch will be among those that will be temporarily inactive for the next couple of weeks. I wanted to close out with some good news related to "The Lab” and the level cap increase, both of which went active earlier today. Along with this live update for the characters, we’ve also removed the Pistole from the “The Lab” so that “Sniper Extermination” is exactly that – Dragon Sniper only matches. A global per-match cash cap increase to $75,000 will also take effect when you log in next to multiplayer. I’ll be trying to put in as much time playing “The Lab” as I can – I hope to see some of you online.
