Why Don't We Know Anything About The Last of Us' Multiplayer?

IGN: "The Last of Us launches on PS3 in under a month, and we still haven't seen its multiplayer mode yet. Is this bad news? Or is Naughty Dog afraid of ruining the story?"

The story is too old to be commented.

This is Naughty Dog we're talking about. Uncharted 3, in my opinion, IS the best multiplayer I've ever played, so I'm very excited to see how the multiplayer is.

IMO Uncharted 2 got a better MP than UC3. UC3 MP got a drastically downgrade graphic than its SP

DeltaCanuckian1230d ago

You're basing it solely on the graphics? Sure they got downgraded but that's the case in most games. I found the gameplay and ranking/unlock system to be much better than UC2. Not a fan of the MP in either game though.

Yeah, the problem with UC3's multiplayer is that they tried to turn it into Call of Duty, which was really stupid.

@Kanzes

I think UC2 multiplayer was better, but I think UC3 maps and dynamics changes were a significant improvement over UC2.

OT: I think the Last of Us is really going to be a survival based multiplayer experience similar to how the single player is. My guess is the multiplayer takes place during the first outbreak of the infection, which is why they can't show or speak on it due to spoilers.

Gameplay-wise you play as a survivor and you're in a small open environment scavenging for items to survive, however, there are 9 (UC3 5 v 5) other players on the map also doing the same thing. So you're goal is to get what you need to survive by any means necessary that means killing other players to get their supplies (or at least a percentage of what they had). Eventually a wave of infected will be released on the map, so not only do you have them to deal with, but other players as well.

So for instance you're hiding in a building, but you hear gunfire and look up and see someone being hoarded by the infected, you can take the chance to shoot the player and cause them to get killed. Afterwards you can throw a brick in the opposite direction, moving the infected away from the body, and jump down to collect the remaining supplies, only to get killed by someone else who was watching the entire time.

That would be complete bad@$$ and it's one of the theme I was going to use for one of my game if I every had the chance to develop a major IP :D. Best of all it would be great for co-op survival (horde mode), competitive co-op (2 v 2 v 2), or team deathmatch.

U3 got a downgrade in the graphics for mp because the 3D they wanted to put in.

ScepticTankAvenger1230d ago

I never got a chance to play Uncharted 2 multiplayer at its prime, so my opinion may be biased. I played it a couple months after Uncharted 3 came out.

Uncharted 3 best multiplayer LMFAO (No offence Uncharted has the best single player)

matrixman921230d ago

UC3's mp was a joke compared to 2's IMO

Uncharted 3's multiplayer was/is great

HarryMasonHerpderp1230d ago

I enjoyed it too.
People hate on Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3's multiplayer but I enjoyed them.

Divine1230d ago

i think the multiplayer is gonna be similar to uncharted which is why they arent really mentioning it. which isnt really a bad thing to me

DemonSlayer4201230d ago

I'd say more like the best coop, that's very important as well. Last of Us could have a hell of a coop feature just like Uncharted 2 & 3. Here's hoping....

Blaze9291230d ago

"This is Naughty Dog we're talking about. "

lol the fact that you think Uncharted 3 is the best multiplayer you ever played and say that after praising naughty dog shows you probably never played Uncharted 2 or 3 lol.

Donnieboi1230d ago

I just played Uncharted 3 multiplayer, and it's STILL unbalanced, and the collision detection sucks. Uncharted 2 was so great, I just don't understand how they screwed up UC3 so bad.

Maybe because the multiplayer isn't important, it's just an added feature to make the package even more worthwhile.
Multiplayer is a key component to many games nowadays, don't want someone to pass it by because it doesn't have multiplayer, even though its not the point of the game

TheOneEyedHound1230d ago

Well to be fair a guy from ND said "it's going to be the best MP ever".
