Uncharted 2 Receiving New Playlist, Double Cash Weekend

May 22, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

One of the many great things about Uncharted 2 is that Naughty Dog manage to keep the title running strong and fresh with updates, patches, and even DLC releasing on a semi-regular basis. Yet again, the award-winning developers will release a new update bringing in a whole lot of content for players to look forward to.

Naughty Dog have announced that a new playlist entitled, “The Lab”, will be running from May 28th to June 1st. The playlist will be running roughly every other weekend. When “The Lab” playlist is active, Naughty Dog will be running a playlist featuring one or more custom-tuned gametype variations from the tons of variables which they can tweak in their multiplayer gameplay settings.

The current schedule and descriptions for the first three events in Uncharted 2’s “The Lab” playlist series is as follows:

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.

To celebrate the launch of “The Lab” Playlist program, players will be treated to a Double Cash Weekend. The per match cash limit for Double Cash Weekend has also been raised to a maximum of $150,000.

Naughty Dog will be creating a new thread over on the game’s community website for every event so be sure to also leave feedback on the forums for each of  “The Lab” events.

Starts: Friday, May 28, 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that where I live?)
Ends: Tuesday, June 1, 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that where I live?)
