SCEA's Product Marketing Specialist Mick Perona has announced today that this weekend a new Uncharted 2 multiplayer playlist dubbed The Lab arrives alongside the recently announced PSN avatars.
To quote: This 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.
Here's the current schedule and description for the first event 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...
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
Ends: Tuesday, June 1, 10:00 AM PDT
As with our previous Double Cash Weekend, the per match cash limit has also been raised to $150,000 maximum per match.
Head on over to NaughtyDog.com for the full schedule of the "The Lab" playlists, as well as to learn where you can chat in the forums to give your feedback on these new events, as well as get information on updated play schedules.
