Just a quick note – don’t forget that today is Remembrance Day in many countries around the world. If you’re in one of the countries that observes this holiday today, don’t forget to take a moment to commemorate the fallen members of the armed forces of your nation. And now, on to info on "The Lab"... We kick off November with a blast – literally – as our first episode of “The Lab” this month is M – 32 Hammers Only. “The Lab” is a special, limited-time playlist for UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves multiplayer that is active every other weekend. “The Lab” playlist features one or more custom-tuned gametype variations chosen by our game designers to test potential new settings, try out alternate gametypes in a real-world setting or just mix things up for the sake of variety. “The Lab” is open from Friday, November 12, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?) through Monday, November 15, at 10:00 AM PDT (what time is that in my city?). This episode of “The Lab” features is M – 32 Hammers Only. When we say “only” we mean only – NO grenades, NO pistol. Each player will start with 8 shots in their M -32 Hammer and there will be some M – 32 Hammers scattered around the map for ammo replenishment. UPDATED: Boosters are ACTIVE for this episode of “The Lab” and you’ll have plenty of interesting choices to consider for your slot 2 Booster – Sure Foot so you don’t get stunned from a nearby explosion, Launch Man to increase your M-32 Hammer ammo or either of the Badge of Honor boosters – Half Loaded cuts down your clip size and makes you more vulnerable to groups of players or Come Get Some. The active maps for this weekend of “The Lab” are:
- The Plaza
- The Sanctuary
- The Temple
- The Train Wreck
We’ll be opening the M – 32 Hammers Only discussion thread on the Naughty Dog community forums at about the same time “The Lab” starts this weekend. Be sure to leave your thoughts after you’ve had a chance to play a few rounds!
