UNCHARTED 2: New Multiplayer Playlist “The Lab,” and new PSN Avatars

Hey Everyone, Are you itching for some more multiplayer mayhem? Well, you’re in luck!

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.

UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves -- The Lab multiplayer

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 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.


And that’s not all; don’t miss out on our brand new UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves avatar bundles for PSN we released this Tuesday on the PlayStation Store! We are so excited to be able to bring these new avatars for your PSN ID’s, we know how badly you’ve been wanting to update your avatars, and now you can show off your UNCHARTED pride in style!

how about u do this naughty dog? how about u fix the game so u dont die so fast, ppl bought u2 becuz the beta was near perfection, now its just a 3rd person rip off of MW2! seriously, what’s the point of a cover system when u die so fast, the majority of the time u wont even make to a object for cover. most of the updates you have made only made the game worse..

before all the updates the only real thing that needed fixing was the long times it took to find other players in a game lobby and glitches…

You can save 100% by NOT buying the avatars!

Anyway, is there any chance the Siege DLC can be divided into just maps, and just skins, Not just the bundle? I don’t like paying for “pictures”.

NaughtyDog truly has spoiled the Uncharted 2 fans with the 3 DLCs we’ve had this year. How many game developers do this within the first 7 months of releasing a game. GOTY was well deserved. Keep up the good work and support of the mp, NaughtyDog.

@Mick: does NaughtyDog peer into other Uncharted 2 forums outside of their website and Playstation’s to see what the community is griping, liking, and recommending?

I’d get the Nathan Drake icon, but I’m 9 cents short.

You know what would bring in millions to Sony and Playstation??? SPLIT SCREEN ONLINE MULTIPLAYER. If it could somehow be incorporated into U2, then sweet. If not, then definitely in U3

I really hope naughty dog continues to add more DLC! including more co-op missions and map packs. Hopefully they’ll add some dlc for single player as well; like missing chapters and stuff!! Does anybody know if they’re doing this? Please let me know.

I’ve only bought the Sully avatar, I can’t use all of them at the same time anyway. Maybe I’ll buy Elena and the Dagger somewhere in time, but for now, I’m happy with Sully.

I liked the first weekend of the Lab by the way, played about 35 matches, haven’t lost a single one. =)

I’ll be sure to not take off Evasion during the Shotgun Only weekend by the way, there are going to be a lot of SA whores in the playlist, for sure.
