Double cash (and more!) to celebrate Hanukkah

A little short notice, I know, but there’s no time like the present to announce that we’re taking the occasion to celebrate Hanukkah in UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer by giving everyone a little extra cash during the holiday. Well, a little extra cash is a bit of an understatement…

The great thing about December is that is has a ton of holidays and if there’s anything we love at Naughty Dog, it's holidays – because they give us reason to do cool things for our UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer community. Hanukkah just started yesterday and will run through sundown on Thursday, December 9, this year. We were talking about running Double Cash during the full eight days, but one of our game designers did us one better. He suggested we run a progressive multiplier for each day of Hanukkah. We’ve started observing the Hanukkah holiday on Wednesday, December 1, with 1x cash. At around 10:30 AM PST (what time is that in my city?) on Thursday, December 2, we will kick up the bonus to 2x. Each subsequent day the multiplier will go up by one at roughly the same time. Day one is only 1x cash, but day two (Thursday, December 2) is 2x cash, day three (Friday, December 3) is 3x cash and so on, ending with a never before seen 8x cash on the last day of Hanukkah! Our progressive cash multiplier event will end at around sundown – just before 5:00 PM PST (what time is that in my city?) on Thursday, December 9.
