The Last of Us' Multiplayer to Have "That Spirit We've Captured in the Single Player"

PSLS: One very important thing we’re still waiting to hear about is the multiplayer aspect in The Last of Us, and to try to get some info, the PS Blogcast talked to Ricky Cambier, Game Designer at Naughty Dog, and Erick Pangilinan, Art Director at Naughty Dog. Here’s the brief, but interesting, teaser they left: (Naughty Dog, PS3, The Last Of Us)

Some Gamestop's already have copies in the store. (I Know because my friend works at one). She is working on renting a copy early for me. Are trophies already active?

I'm glad that the "shoehorned" multiplayers of the last couple of years are finally being fine tuned and properly worked with.

Does anyone know what the multiplayer will actually be yet? Any rumors or anything? Kind of interested to see if it'll be like a Left 4 Dead style or Team Death Match or something completely different.
Minato-Namikaze  +   657d ago
Doesnt matter, It's naughty dog. But they havent said, just that it's the best MP ever conceived according to ND.

You can mark enemies.
Listen mode will allow you to "see" enemies by listening. The range for this is short, and you are physically handicapped when in this mode. Hold R2 for Listen mode.
There will be a radar.
You can get more info from the booster descriptions below:

Other booster descriptions (no names):

Item pick-ups appear behind walls in Listen Mode.
Slowly zoom while aiming any pistol.
Upgrade melee weapons faster.
Teammates within 5 meters also receive items you craft.
Aim faster from behind cover.
Know when enemies mark you.

Revive fallen teammates faster, give them more HP, and get more XP.
Sprint without showing on enemy radar.
Teammates see enemies glow when you mark them.
All enemies within 10 meters are displayed on radar.

Reduce the distance that others can see you through walls in Listen Mode.
Your markers remain 10 seconds longer.

TLOU will be a defining moment in PS3's history.

It's a credit to Sony, with all the PS3 has to offer right now, and in the near future.

We're 6 months away from new PS hardware, and still PS3 stands strong.

Proof that Sony really do care about the'Gamers' :)
loulou  +   657d ago
are you hoping that someone from sony will read that?
andibandit  +   657d ago
I think i have to throw up
Haules  +   657d ago
Ahahaha, no! Seriously, other devs have said that exact same thing time and again, it's getting ridiculous.
Salooh  +   657d ago
Dude, This is naughty dog..

That's all i should say, i don't need to say anything to show how talented and great these developers are. You think it's overrated then it's you who have a problem with it. People love it..

Pointing out that other devs have said the same thing about their games means TLOU is over-rated? That's some nice logic you've got there.
sandman224  +   657d ago
When does the demo become available to play on god of war?
Double_Oh_Snap  +   657d ago
May 31st
