The Last Of Us: Naughty Dog Hiring For Co-Op Multiplayer Dev

The Last of Us, Naughty Dog's post-Uncharted, post-apocalyptic action game has not had any multiplayer details revealed thus far, but that doesn't mean the Sony studio isn't working on it - and it could well be a co-op mode according to a new Naughty Dog vacancy.

Creative director Neil Druckmann confirmed multiplayer for the game back in June, with the stipulation that "it is not co-op within the main campaign."

It could well be a variation on co-op action though, with the developer hiring for a co-op Game Designer.

I seriously cannot wait for this game, it's going to be epic! Another masterpiece from ND :D

DAY Z'ish....good size maps, but much smaller scale.

You and your teammate, searching through ruble, building, trees, bushes...looking for supplies

7, 11, or 15 other teams trying to salvage the most stuff, avoiding monsters and a few animals and ultimately kill each other.

You die, and without a revive, there's no comeback...sorry.

Ok....not perfected yet....but that's my first vision, and it HAS to be co-op.

What do you think N4G? :)

Hell, if it's wide-linear (similar to Bioshock), I can die happy.

That, or a long (long) story.

A masterpiece in the making, I agree. Just when you think it cannot get better they up the ante...

I wonder if they wil be introducing new characters for the COOP MP? I figure they will.

I love the extra option, you get single player and co-op MP, the more choices the better, as long as they give everything they have for both single and MP game modes....Knowing NG this is a sure bet...

Co-op wave mode? What about a Fortnite-style meta game whereby you keep surviving/scavenging while repelling waves of bandits etc? Make co-op deep enough to play by itself, and it'll be a success.

It does seem well suited to co-op, but they probably don't want the second player (Ellen Page) to be bored. She's kind of limited throwing bricks and stuff.

Still, I love co-op and if it's separate to the main game - which looks ace as it is - then I'm happy for that.

skyward2043d ago

It's not campaing co-op, so it could be other characters.

Most likely that unless ND has something innovative in plan. 2013 cant come soon enough :D

Conzul2043d ago

You mean Ashley Johnson, love.
Not Ellen Page.

PrivateRyan2043d ago

Not fussed about co-op, will be getting this because single player looks really good so far

NastyLeftHook02043d ago

yeah, co-op is just a bonus.
