Introducing “The Lab” Playlist and Double Cash Weekend

Next weekend is (May 28 to June 1) Memorial Day Weekend in the US and it’s also going to be a big weekend for UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer with the introduction of “The Lab” Playlist and Double Cash Weekend. Read on to find out what we’ve got in store next weekend.

Next weekend – May 28 to June 1 – we’re introducing a new playlist that will mix things up and maybe, possibly lead to updates or additions to the existing playlists in competitive Matchmaking. We’re calling this playlist “The Lab.” We’ll be running “The Lab” Playlist roughly every other weekend for the foreseeable future. During each weekend “The Lab” is active, we’ll be running a playlist featuring one or more custom-tuned gametype variations from the tons of variables we can tweak in our multiplayer gameplay settings. We’ll also be hosting a new thread for every event on our Naughty Dog community forums to get your feedback and thoughts on each one of our “The Lab” events. Here’s the current schedule and descriptions for the first three events in our “The Lab” Playlist series: May 28 – June 1 2 vs. 2 Team Deathmatch Grab a partner for this small- to medium-size map mow-down. You’ve got 15 minutes to rack up 25 kills, or more than the other team, to prove your small-team superiority. I'm going to recommend now that you're going to want pick a reliable teammate you want to play with over the weekend... June 11 – 14 Shotguns Only We’re serving up short-range mayhem as all players and maps spawn with Moss-12 and Pistole only. Oh, and NO grenades. June 25 – 28 Sniper Extermination Two teams. Dragon Sniper rifles. One life per round. Best of 5 rounds takes the match win. Absolutely tense, totally tactical. Keep track of future updates on "The Lab" including updated schedules through "The Lab" topic in our community forums or through "The Lab" blog keyword tag. Of course, to commemorate the launch of “The Lab” Playlist program will be a Double Cash Weekend! Starts: Friday, May 28, 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?) Ends: Tuesday, June 1, 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?) As with our previous Double Cash Weekend, the per match cash limit has also been raised to $150,000 maximum per match.
