101w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli is here with the Uncharted 3 PS3 Patch 1.11 notes which include the return of the Lab, an Elimination Mode and more outlined below!

To quote: It's back! We are very excited to unveil patch 1.11 for UNCHARTED 3, which will be live for download by the end of May.

First of all, we can hail the long anticipated return of the Lab. However if your memory is fuzzy about what the Lab is, we first introduced it in UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer.

The Lab is a playlist featuring a unique series of multiplayer game types that our designers have concocted that focus on, above all, being fun.

As for other changes happening in patch 1.11 UNCHARTED 3's Lead Multiplayer Designer Robert Cogburn and Game Director Justin Richmond have something to say:

199w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced that the Uncharted 2 'The Lab' PS3 Sniper Extermination gets underway this weekend.

To quote: If you aren't already planning on participating in the "The Lab" this weekend – or haven't in previous weekends – log in to UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer and check out the limited-time-only "The Lab" playlist in competitive matchmaking.

This weekend's episode of "The Lab" is Sniper Extermination. All players start with only Dragon Sniper rifles and there are no other weapons available on the map.

The goal of the game is similar to our Elimination gametype – once you or your opponent has been dispatched, you're out of the round until all opponents on either team are wiped out. The team with any or the most remaining players left alive wins that round.

203w ago - SCEA's Product Marketing Specialist Mick Perona has announced today that this weekend a new Uncharted 2 multiplayer playlist dubbed The Lab arrives alongside the recently announced PSN avatars.

To quote: This weekend - May 28 to June 1 - we're introducing a new playlist that will mix things up and maybe, possibly lead to updates or additions to the existing playlists in competitive Matchmaking. We're calling this playlist "The Lab."

We'll be running "The Lab" Playlist roughly every other weekend for the foreseeable future.

During each weekend "The Lab" is active, we'll be running a playlist featuring one or more custom-tuned gametype variations from the tons of variables we can tweak in our multiplayer gameplay settings.

Here's the current schedule and description for the first event in our "The Lab" Playlist series:

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...
