What Would Make The Last of Us Multiplayer Actually Good? Some Ideas To Toss Around

MP1st - While the single player will most likely be the reason to even play the game, we can’t ignore that The Last of Us will have multiplayer. To some that in itself is troubling. For a game that seems primarily focused on Single-player, multiplayer is a thought that is sitting in the back of many buyers’ heads. So, what exactly does Naughty Dog need to do to get our attention? (PS3, The Last Of Us)

More team work less competitive.

It would be sick if at a point of a team death match some clickers and infected begin to show up. Could be implemented like the sandstorm in Uncharted 3 just with the infected. That would be insane if done right. From the looks of it though ND seems to know what they're doing. Can't wait.

i always wanted something objective based for this games, something like this.. The whole city is split up into four part, A, B, C, and D.. 4 to 5 players start in part A, there's a big wall between A, and B. so the objective is to collect objects to make a home-made bomb to blow the wall up and advance to part B of the city. each part will have its own objective. and while trying to get from A to D there's 4 to 5 enemies tryng to stop you. with a few AI controlled clickers after EVERYONE.. and the combat would be hand to hand, knife, bricks, broken bottles, small weapons with low ammo based. something that can feel like the the game.

What Naughty dog comes up with should be pretty good. Im still expecting a multiplayer reveal this week with all the Playstation news so far.
Omar91  +   937d ago
So wait, question: Has Multiplayer been confirmed by Naughty Dog or is this just rumors?
Nitrowolf2  +   937d ago
Yes it has been, but they ahven't shown anything with a month till release
Omar91  +   937d ago
Cool. I'm on this site everyday and never seen a article. Guess I must have missed it. Thanks for the info!

The demo most likely is gonna have MP in some way. No reason to delay the demo if it was SP only.
Nitrowolf2  +   937d ago
Exactly. It makes almost no sense to do it if it was just SP.

If you look at some of the preorder bonuses, one of the items was character skins for multiplayer. That's when it first got out that the game had multiplayer I believe. But yes, they did confirm multiplayer outside of that.

I want a mode where you invade other people's single player sessions and play as the AI. RE6 had a mode similar to this.

Single player= 1. Wouldn't be a single player session then now would it?
Double_Oh_Snap  +   937d ago
As long as Naughty Dog takes all the core values/mechanics of The Last of Us. Then uses them as a foundation for mp everything should be okay.

No health regen
Power struggle mechanic
Brutal melee combat
Interesting modes that reflect The Last of Us not TDM

Just a few examples of a good way to start imo.

If multiplayer is coming to TLoU, co-op is where it's at. In my opinion, a competitive element would kind of take the shine off this game. We've enough competitive multiplayer games to choose from already; we could do with more good cooperative ones...

Not that I don't like Uncharted, I just hope the MP isn't a clone of it.

AI controlled infected attacking PVP Survivors vs Scavengers.
Nitrowolf2  +   937d ago
This is actually what I want to happen for the competitive part. Can you imagine going against a team when suddenly a swarm of Infected come out of no where from all directions. Battle for survival.
yesmynameissumo  +   937d ago
Exactly! I even think of the potential to "team up" with opposite team to fight the infected and then...let the back stabbing begin!

The multiplayer sounds interesting but Im just getting the game for the single player experience. Rarely do I play multiplayer anyways.
Hazmat13  +   937d ago
i know its been over done but horde mode, a collection of co op missions, infection (one starts out as an infected tag or eat to expand your numbers for the infected, team up or go solo), i guess your normal PvP, tag (infected person can only score, whom ever kills the infected gets infected and in return get points for every kill.) or this idea been stuck in my head for some time ok 5 guys, 1 infected, 1 round infected can climb, go thru vents and run silently, the survivors equipped with 9mm pistol and a large sum of ammo. this game takes place in building with lights flickering and what not. 1 life for both sides. kinda like The Hidden mod.

Cancel it and add a few more hours to the story. That would be best.
Dropdeadll  +   937d ago
I'm only interested in the MP. These guys made the best MP game sony has (Uncharted 2).
MilkMan  +   937d ago
Taking it out and focusing on the SP. I don't want or need another Uncharted MP experience.
Iltapalanyymi  +   936d ago
nothing. not even gonna touch it. i have pre-ordered this game but im never touching MP
HmongAmerican  +   936d ago
I see multiplayer going to be like shooting zombies.
