Uncharted Golden Abyss: Contemplating Multiplayer on Vita

If you are lucky enough to own a Asian version of the Sony PS Vita right now, then you already have the pleasure of playing through Uncharted: Golden Abyss in English before the rest of the world gets their hands on it at the end of next month.

For those that have played it, you’ll probably agree that it is a great game. I’ve put a number of hours into the game myself and it is a game that shows off the gorgeous 5-inch OLED screen featured on the Vita, as well as some of the exclusive touchscreen and motion pad features that this handheld version of Uncharted will benefit from too.

While we have no complaints about the full Uncharted package on the Vita at the moment, one area that is noticeably absent is the lack of multiplayer. Those of you who have played Drake’s Deception online will know just how fun Uncharted online can be, and it’s a shame that Golden Abyss doesn’t feature any form of multiplayer as it would definitely be the icing on the cake.

All is not lost though, as we may just have the first hints to bring you that multiplayer is firmly in the minds of Sony Bend, who are the developers for the game. A brief article posted at Destructoid has it for granted that multiplayer is definitely on the way for Golden Abyss, as a developer for the game apparently told them to ‘expect something different’ and that further details on this will be coming soon.

What what exactly do they mean by something different? Does this mean that they are planning to offer a different experience from Uncharted 3 online? Some online co-op missions would be fantastic for the Vita, but we’ll take anything they give us at the moment. There’s also whispers that this online mode may make it into the retail version of Uncharted: Golden Abyss for the February 22 US and EU launch. If this is the case, then expect a lengthy patch update to reach those who already have an Asian copy of the game.

Have you played Golden Abyss yet? What are your thoughts on the game so far? I love the fact that you can take a screenshot at any time, one particular screenshot from Golden Abyss now sits perfectly as my Vita homescreen image.
