UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Celebrates Halloween with a Title Update and a Double Cash Weekend

Arne Meyer's Avatar Posted by Director of Communications, Naughty Dog

The next time you start up UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves you will be required to download an update to the game (Japan and Asia regions — your update will be available next week).

Here’s the list of (most of) the changes we made. Some changes have been withheld to protect the innocent.

  • Addressed respawn points when the artifact goes out of bounds in the Plunder gametype
  • Dynamically adjust the win condition for fewer players during the course of a match
  • Added features to deter players from voluntarily leaving during a match
  • Added rate limit to “When a Chapter is Completed” Twitter event
  • Fixed a display issue during letterboxing
  • Fixed Danish Trophy description
  • Fixed screenshot utility in standard definition resolutions
  • Fixed the “Players Met” list not displaying recent players
  • Addressed a variety of Multiplayer connectivity issues

BUT, that’s not all…

With Halloween on the horizon, we wanted to take this spooky occasion to announce that this weekend is also our first ever Double Cash Weekend in UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves. The Double Cash Weekend starts on Friday, October 30, 2009, at 11:00 AM PST and continues until Monday, November 2, 2009, at 11:00 AM PST.

In every match during Double Cash Weekend, you’ll be getting twice the Cash award you normally would for completing typical game actions – not medal-related currency awards – giving everyone a leg up in increasing their Rank for a limited time. That means this weekend is the perfect time to hop on to our Competitive and Co-op Multiplayer modes – whether you’re just a few levels away from the vaunted ‘X’ or this is just your first time online.

A bunch of Naughty Dogs will also be playing this weekend, so be on the lookout for the red Naughty Dog paw next to our PSN ID in the game and feel free to say hi, ask any questions or shoot at our characters. Stay sharp! There might be something spooky around the next corner…

Don’t you mean Monday, November 2, 2009? Unless its october 30th all weekend long. If so, no one told me about it. =[ I’m always left out of the loop

    Eep! Yes, we updated the post. It\’s until Monday, November 2, 2009.

What happened to the “you’ll never need to install an update” promise we got from Naughty Dog? Changes to the game code will be done without the player noticing, I thought.

I don’t mind downloading an update, it just seems weird that a big thing was made of this “hidden updating” feature of Uncharted 2 and yet the first major update is a download?

    We said there are a lot of things in multiplayer we can adjust on the fly without a download required (like the Halloween skins and Double Cash). There are also some things we can\’t without a Title Update.

They must be having a case of Groundhog Day (as in the Bill Murray movie) haha

Sounds fun can’t wait! Any DLC coming soon? Make add ons too the story mode. That would be cool :)

So if I kill you, or if I’m on the same team as you & have to carry your weight ;) does that mean you’ll send me a fortune edition

Sweet looks like I will be getting a ton of Uncharted 2 in this weekend.

So I might be able to unlock that Fat Drake skin sooner than I thought

CaptainGillette said:

I’m picking up my copy today, although I may not get to really start playing until Sunday or something… can’t wait!

Spunta said:

October 30th, 10:37 am

So it starts and ends all at the same time? Did… did you all at Naughty Dog just divide by zero?

jgnyy32 said:

October 30th, 10:37 am

sweet downloading it now !!! i was going to play this weekend anyway so this makes it even better.:) thanks naughty dog and great job with uncharted 2

Wozamil said:

October 30th, 10:38 am

I’m extremely sad that a Plunder only game mode has yet to be added. I will continue to voluntarily quit matches to get to a match I enjoy instead of being forced to play those I don’t.

Xulap said:

October 30th, 10:39 am

Sweet,

Hopefully you keep doing these kind of things to keep people playing and coming back for more for a LONG time. Keep adding stuff to the multiplayer, and hopefully the singleplayer too. A game of this caliber deserves all the attention possible, so I expect some add-ons, expansions, or whatever. New characters skins, new maps, new co-op missions, etc. I’d pay for anything.

Congratulations to you guys for an exceptional game. Looking forward to play with at least one of you this weekend.

Awesome… Looks amazing, can’t wait to get some game time in tonight.

emzee83 said:

Are you guys going to add Custom soundtracks. The multiplayer really needs it. It’s to quiet out there. I can’t see why this game does not have it when KZ2, warhawk, motor storm etc have it.

    Unfortunately, we will not be supporting custom soundtracks. Sorry!

This game looks sweet! I’m currently playing Killzone 2 and have been utterly blown awawy by the graphics! This game, and the newest Ratchet and Clank are both on my list for PS3 games, as well as Final Fantasy 13, and of course God of War 3!

Spunta said:

October 30th, 10:41 am

OH SNAP! IS DAT SOME SKELETONS VERSUS ZOMBIES?!

lyfestory said:

October 30th, 10:43 am

they dont need to do anything more to make the game great.. those of you who think they do need to stop whining… theyve worked hard on this title and it shows.. im happy with the way it is… i dont expect Criterion-type updates…. just happy i have the game and the single player story is amazing…

I lol’d when I saw the Danish trophy description (Wasn’t it the grenade one?). Too bad it’s fixed now. I kinda liked it :P

Nimoy23 said:

October 30th, 10:46 am

Looks like a gaming weekend ahead for a lot of us. I like the skins in the pic. Almost as much as I like turtles.
Good yob. Keep up the good work. Hoping to get pwned this weekend by some of the ND crew.

mrgerbik03 said:

October 30th, 10:47 am

Danish trophies? Is that related to Donut Drake? j/k

Are the Halloween skins available to all?

sabot37 said:

October 30th, 10:48 am

Ummm… what’s that you say about “Halloween skins” in your reply above? I didn’t read anything about new skins in the announcement…

will we be able to keep the skins after the weekend is over?

DryvBy said:

October 30th, 10:51 am

I just picked up this game. I absolutely love it! I wish I had a week off to just play the multiplayer.

ilikemonkeys said:

October 30th, 10:52 am

Could you elaborate on the ways you are deterring quitters?

AssassinHD said:

October 30th, 10:52 am

Now I have to choose between double cash in Uncharted 2, or the black cloud event in Demon’s Souls. Curse you Sony for giving me choices! Curse you I say!

Thwip said:

October 30th, 10:53 am

Looking forward to the Double Cash weekend…thanx!

PS – Whatever happened to Canada’s opportunity to win the Fortune Hunter Edition??? Please reply.

Finally we get to play against the devs. A whole bunch of us have been waiting to rape you guys.

Arne,

Can you please allow solo play for Survival and Goldrush (custom games)?

Wozamil said:

October 30th, 10:58 am

Looks like I have an excuse to leave work early today.

Eternal21 said:

October 30th, 11:01 am

Who else is going to ‘pump-hump’ Naughty Dog devs when you kill them online? I know, I sure will!

mike3648 said:

October 30th, 11:02 am

Its a great game-glad I bought it. Any plans for new multi-player maps in the near future?!?

ParadoX444 said:

October 30th, 11:04 am

I truly love this game, would be complete if it had custom soundtracks. Please add this feature! :(

blackbeard_ said:

October 30th, 11:04 am

awesome! see you online!

by the way, I can’t log into naughtydog.com. I can log in here but not there :-/ I tried emailing nd support but got an email bounce back so I couldn’t even report it. If you’re still reading this… just an fyi… I get a PSN ticket error message.

Love the game though! Stellar… simply stellar!!!

    We\’re aware and we\’re working to fix it. We should have it fixed next week. Sorry!

Eternal21 said:

October 30th, 11:05 am

When will you guys start tracking GOLDEN-GUN kills on the website? They are not being recorded currently (should be part of AK-47 kills).

AssassinHD said:

October 30th, 11:05 am

I am definitely going to participate in this. It will give me a chance to rank up a bit before my best friend gets Uncharted 2.

sazzrah said:

October 30th, 11:05 am

Thanks for the reply Mr. Meyer.

I didn’t mean to whinge after getting a nice update; was just curious after what I’d heard/read.

I’m probably just pissed I can’t get involved because I have 5 assignments to finish for uni before I can play the Uncharted 2 multiplayer. Boo.

slyjak said:

October 30th, 11:07 am

Sounds like a good deal.

Eternal21 said:

October 30th, 11:10 am

The community is wondering whether the number of online players listed in Multiplayer menu accurate? Or is it only for a particular matching server. It seems kind of odd that there would be only 12,000 people playing this game online given pretty good sales numbers (over 1 million units sold).
