If you start up Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , you'll find that you need to download an update before you can begin playing. Well, that's only the start of the Halloween festivities for Naughty Dog's gem.
As revealed at the PlayStation Blog , this update addresses several reported problems and makes the game even cleaner, especially online. The list of fixes and repairs is at the blog; they added those features that would "deter players from voluntarily leaving a match" (remember this article ?), added a rate limit to "When a Chapter is Completed" Twitter event, fixed the "Players Met" list not displaying recent players, and much more… Halloween is today and to celebrate, Naughty Dog will be holding a Double Cash Weekend, which is currently under way. You'll receive twice the normal Cash reward for completing typical game actions, so it's a great time to get involved in the competitive and co-op multiplayer aspects of the game. Naughty Dog members will also be involved in the mix so if you see a red paw next to a name, feel free to say "hi" or just cap 'em and brag to your friends that you nailed an Uncharted 2 designer.
Oh, and we're warned to look out for "something spooky around the next corner." We have no idea what that means exactly but based on the screenshot seen at the blog, we get the feeling it's definitely Halloween – and undead – related. Have fun, peeps!
