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?

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.

So wait, question: Has Multiplayer been confirmed by Naughty Dog or is this just rumors?

Nitrowolf21355d ago

Yes it has been, but they ahven't shown anything with a month till release

Omar911355d 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.

Nitrowolf21355d ago (Edited 1355d 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?

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.
