What Multiplayer in The Last of Us Might Mean for Its Story

Gi - Superstar developer Naughty Dog, the creators of the successful Uncharted franchise, are set to release survival horror action-adventure game The Last of Us on May 7. The PS3 exclusive is taking the studio in a somber new direction in the ongoing pursuit of evolving storytelling in its games. Part of the title’s promise includes “dynamic stealth”, a system of emergent player options in scenarios that result in differing enemy reactions. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Hope their is a high spec version for the PS4, would hold out for it.

Why waste resources?
Once ND is finished with this game I hope they create a new IP for the PS4 instead of wasting their talents porting it over to a smaller userbase.

There will be little difference between a PS4 launch game and a late PS3 game in terms of graphics.

Dumbest thing i have heard on here in a good while. You are straight tripping

Why would you think that? There has been nothing said officially by sony to think that. Dont post your opinions like they are facts.

The specs. for the PS4 puts it on par with most mid-range single GOU gaming PC's.

The difference should be noticeable day 1 as long as developers take the time to make the difference.

7970M is vastly superior to the GPU in the PS3, as well as the 4GB of GDDR5, now supposedly 8GB (I suspect 4GB GDDR3, 2GB DDR3 OS, 2.2GB GDDR5 GPU). That upgrade is more than enough to see a difference, especially in resolution, framerate, textures, lightning, and overall graphics enhancements.

Well, I'm confident Multiplayer will not affect story at all, after seeing the first 30 minutes of GoW Ascension, it's amazing.

More then multiplayer I hope this game is coop...

Im sure naughty dog will deliver more great multiplayer with uncharted4
DeadlyFire  +   941d ago
hmm...Likely PS3 support will be in the PS4 and there will undoubtedly be a sequel.

New type of multi-player...

Sony PS3 offers more of something new all the time not more of the same.

Such a forward thinking and progressive gaming brand that always keeps the excitement going.

My gaming investment on PS3 is well worth it.

It means nothing because this is Naughty Dog. What happened to Uncharted 2 when it included Multiplayer? It improved on the single player from Uncharted 1. What happened to Uncharted 3? It improved both the multiplayer and single player, in my opinion.

Uncharted 3 felt worse than Uncharted 2 both in SP and MP IMO.

@ Reverent.Yeah I have never heard the word mediocre about Uncharted's MP except from the haters.Best MP I have played in a long time. And I despise most MP.
clintagious650  +   942d ago
I cannot wait to play this game. Uncharted is my favorite IP this gen & naughty dog are just an amazing studio. Cant wait to see wat they are capable of creating on the ps4 especially with more freedom to work with. Uncharted Open World would be awesome, i can dream lol.
LiquidSword93  +   942d ago
I hate the idea of multiplayer in a game like this. Why naughty dog? Nobody asks for this stuff.
Soldierone  +   942d ago
If anything, a game like this has a tacked on multiplayer. Its Naughty Dog so I don't think that will be the case at all, look at Uncharted.

However looking at games like Tomb Raider, the multiplayer is most likely just tacked on to say it has it. Plenty of games have done it.... it doesn't hurt the single player, it just means the multiplayer dies within a month. (Again I don't think the Last of Us will fall into this category)
