Sony and Naughty Dog sure are going all out to make Uncharted 2: Among Thieves a sequel to remember, today making a surprise announcement that the follow-up to the 2007 PS3 hit exclusive Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune will feature a new online multiplayer component.

Uncharted 2 online will offer 5-versus-5 competitive battles in Death Match and Plunder (Capture the Flag variant) match types and a 3-player co-op mode in which players will work together through various missions earning in-game currency to put towards unlocking upgrades and other goodies.

“Adding a multiplayer aspect to the UNCHARTED franchise is a significant step in the replayability of the game,” said Christophe Balestra, co president Naughty Dog. “UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves will be the most impressive and ambitious game that Naughty Dog has done and we are thrilled to let our fans experience it this fall.”

Sony is scheduled to host a beta test for Uncharted 2‘s new online suite from June 3rd through June 28th, and if you decide to pick up a copy of Sucker Punch’s sandbox superhero game inFamous on May 26th you’ll be treated to a beta access code.
