The people of the interwebs were nice enough to supply me with all the juicy gossip from U.S. magazine Game Informer on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and here I am giving it to you dear reader. Here’s just a few notes that GameFaq’s member ‘Maddognick96’ decided to post.

– The biggest thing in the article IMO is that there’s a new girl named Chloe Frazer. GI asked about Elena and Sully’s return but they had no comment.
– The story is about looking for the ships that Marco Polo “lost” while returning home to Italy.
– Melee combat is more dynamic now.
– They mentioned they were using only 30% of the PS3’s power with Drake’s Fortune and are planning to use nearly 100% with Among Thieves.
– A demo was shown to GI with Drake going through a city (I believe in Nepal), and he’s stealthily taking out guards and escaping the city.
– Nolan North returns to be Drake and Chloe Frazer is played by Claudia Black (Stargate SG-1, Fargate).
– The Sixaxis mechanics were ditched for such things as throwing grenades.
– One of the weapons revealed is a rocket launcher that Chloe uses (might only be for the cinematic).
– There are no load screens.
– The score is being composed by Greg Edmonson (same guy from the first one).
– Weapons can be used in any stance (running, behind cover, hanging, climbing a wall, etc.).
– You can now move while aiming behind cover.

I think it’d be nice to see the return of Elana & Sully, but this new girl sounds interesting. Surprisingly, the stealth gameplay sounds pretty good and i’m glad they’ve got the voice actor (s) and composer from the last game as the audio was pretty sweet. Other than that, everything esle seems pretty cool. I loved Drake’s Fortume, here’s hoping Among Thieves is just as good. I might just have to head down to Borders and get a copy of this myself.
