Uncharted 2 multiplayer gets a holiday boost

After stirring up attention for its forthcoming Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Naughty Dog is putting the spotlight back on Uncharted 2 for the holidays with a multiplayer promotion that features 4x cash rewards and a 'best of' holiday edition of playlist 'The Lab.'

In the past, The Lab has been home to experimental game modes and multiplayer variations. Now until January 3rd, 2011, players who fire up Uncharted 2's multiplayer will find a very special edition of the “The Lab” featuring a rotating playlist of favorite maps and game variations. According to Naughty Dog, its 'The Lab Holiday Event' will include:

Active maps:

The Lost City
The Plaza
The Sanctuary
The Temple

Gametype variations:

Shotguns Only
Plunder Pistols Only
No Power Weapons
Desert-5 Shootout
Deathmatch – No Boosters

As extra incentive to ignore your family over the holidays, Naughty Dog is offering 4x multiplayer cash payouts. In combination with the special playlists, this should do well to rejuvinate Uncharted 2's multiplayer player base – even if it is only for another week or so.

The promotion ends January 3rd at 10am PST.

    I prefer the Horde mode but the deathmatch games can be fun if people aren't being really cheap.

    Goddammmit. Why is there still only 3 co-op maps for the UC2 mutiplayer? It's a brilliant, brilliant piece of co-op multiplayer, but with only 3 maps it's gets very boring quite quickly. There's so many maps for all the other types of multiplayer, can't we have just a couple more? Please Naughty Dog? Pretty please? Go on....

    I just got my copy (and PS3) yesterday. This makes me happy.

    The multiplayer was fun, but it never stuck with me. This will get me to start playing the multiplayer again.
