Naughty Dog has announced that it's to launch a new playlist over Memorial Day Weekend, May 28 - June 1.
It's called The Lab, and it will be running every other weekend "for the foreseeable future".
When running, The Lab will feature one or more "custom-tuned gametype variations from the tons of variables" that can be implemented in the multiplayer settings.
Here’s the current schedule for the first three Lab events, per the developer's official website:
- 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.
The first one hits next weekend, then, and to mark the occasion, it will also be filled with Double Cash.
Double Cash is always a good thing.
