Uncharted 2 Celebrates Halloween with a Title Update and More
Today Naughty Dog Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has announced that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for PS3 is celebrating Halloween with a title update and a double cash weekend.
To quote: 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...
Thanks a lot for this post. I noticed the update this morning and was like WTH, a patch? Already? Then after the quick upload, I notice all the skins were gone and the two skeleton guys. Then in a Co-Op game I seen a message about leaving. It's a 30 second delay from reentering a game. Which I find not long enough at all. It should be like 5 mins. Because player's are still living the game. But, it's SO nice to see Dev's really care about there game and are deep into it every single day we play it.
this game is epic, hows the mutiplayer? is it like MGO? coz i just LOVED MGO
Yeah, very similar! The game play is the same in 3rd person. Only now you can climb ( as we know from the game itself ). I really love how the dev's are sitting in this game baby sitting it from cheaters. I stopped playing MGO so much after 1200 hours of it for that very reason. I just got tired of loosing my levels to lag switchers. But my main and back up player is still level 14.
Meanwhile over here on the UC2 multi side. I'm level 43 and just enjoying it. They added a new change to the Co-Op objectives since the patch for player's that quit mid game. Now if you leave, you not only have to sit out 2 mins before joining another game. You will also loose $40,000 points. Which is HUGE in this game. I mean, I own hardcore in Objectives and I earn avg 19K on easy settings and 27k on normal. This is with over 100 kills a game too. Which not many at all from what I've seen can do. With 2 other player's in that game too. So it's like loosing 4+ games points for many.
