Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – New Gold Rush Co-Op Mode and Gameplay Trailer

[ ?posts_id=2414144&dest=-1]

In the video, originally posted on The PlayStation Blog, the Naughty Dog representative shows himself playing Gold Rush, which is being shown at the San Diego Comic-Con for the first time anywhere. In Gold Rush, the object is to grab the little treasure statue in the map and deliver it to the treasure chest. Sounds easy right? Well only if you can beat the enemies trying to impede your progress of delivering the statue that is.

The player grabs the statue with one hand, while using a pistol with the other. In the video, the player is swarmed by enemies and an enemy helicopter trying to get the treasure back. The representative then gets into a fight and signals for help using his voice, showing that it is hard to complete the delivery without the use of teamwork. That is the object of Co-Op right?

When the player carrying the gold gets shot by enemies, he drops the gold in place of where he was shot. Players go down and are forced to wait for revival from a teammate if their health goes all the way down. Once the representative reaches the treasure site, another player is forced to throw the gold onto the building above, while the representative climbs up to receive it since the treasure chest is located on top. You would think the round would be over when the gold touches the chest, but players must kill the “leftover” enemies who were not killed in the delivery process.

Gold Rush features an unspecified amount of rounds, in which when the player progress through each one, the gold location and difficulty differs. When player goes down, they are only out for the current round, and will rejoin teammates in the next round as long as there is one.

Exclusive to the San Diego Comic-Con, interested gamers can play Gold Rush and pick up a voucher for a new skin in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer mode, which will be based on the original Uncharted character Navarro. So if you are in the area, make sure you stop in to play!
