Uncharted 2’s “The Lab” To Experiment With New Gametypes

Naughty Dog is spicing up Uncharted 2’s multiplayer once more by introducing a brand new playlist. Known as “The Lab,” this new playlist will play host to a variety of experimental gametypes that are sure to provide a nice mix-up for Uncharted 2 fans.

The Lab’s experiments with these new gametypes will hopefully lead to updates regarding playlists and gametype variations. The first session starts at May 28th to June 1st with a new gametype being introduced every other weekend. Naughty Dog will also be creating a new thread in their community forums for each event to get feedback from the fans. Check out the currently scheduled gametypes below:

  • 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.

Sniper Extermination has been my dream gametype for awhile now, 2 vs. 2 Team Deathmatch seems very cool too being with a buddy. I’ll probably pass on Shotguns Only, however.

To start this newly introduced playlist with a bang, Naughty Dog has announced a Double Cash Weekend on May 28th to June 1st. Like the previous double cash event, the cash limit will be raised up to $150,000 per match.
