The Last of Us: The Infected Could Wield Weapons And Were More Grotesque During Concept Stage

During a phase of video game making, a developer at some point had to draw some concept art to understand what they would be getting themselves into. In most cases, multiple sketches are drawn of an in-game model with only a few of them actually being used in the game. It appears that in those early development stages, Naughty Dog had some different ideas for the infected, a few that could have possibly changed the game completely from what it is now. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

I just hoped for an infected MP mode:(

I'd bet you that when the DLC starts rolling out, a co-op horde mode will be included. Hordes of Hunters, infected, and even a mix (perhaps if they fought one another) is what you'll see.

So yeah. Just wait for the DLC. I guarantee you something like what I described will be added.

Would be cool if you had your own camp and can actually see your survivors, hungry, or even sick people. And have to protect your camp against hunters/infected. Have some of your survivors help you out maybe. I'm sure infected would be added on later. Got my season pass, can't wait.

The artciel should add PS4 tag: "but maybe perhaps they’ll use these in the sequels (if there’s going to be one)." ROFL, and Naughty Dog registered domains for tlou2.com and tlou3.com to sell infected juice there? Lol Talking about sth obvious !

i'm having a blast with the online though. I'm sure they'll put more modes into it.

Thankfully, they didnt have them in the game IMO. Probably wouldnt fit in with the sorta realistic stuff they presented in the game. Although, it'd be interesting to fight them though.
bunfighterii  +   665d ago
yeah agreed. The infected are not as frightening as I thought they'd be, compared to the human enemies I find them much easier to beat.
ArchangelMike  +   665d ago
And that is one of the great things about TLoU, the infected are frightening (play it on survivor), humans are much more frightening though, but in a different way (again, play ti on survivor). It just proves the great balance of the game.

But yeah, infected Horde mode please ND.

horde mode pleas3!!!

Looks really cool, but alas the design they went with fit the tone much better.
Inception  +   665d ago
Yeah, i saw those artworks on bonus mode. A little dissapointed that ND not put infected with two heads / body like conjoined twins on the game. It will preety scary when face them. But i'm glad they not put infected with weapons on the game.
DG90  +   665d ago
Oh yeah same.. I was so pissed at the lack of infected conjoined twins in this game..
Inception  +   665d ago
*Lookin at disagree on my comment* Is there any N4G members in here got conjoined twins brother / sister / relative? If yes than i'm sorry if i offended you, ok?

@DG90
Yeah, only 4 infected types on the game and ND should add 1 or 2 more types to add the tension.
NeXXXuS  +   664d ago
If a second game is made, I'm sure there'll be more than 4 infected types in the game. The way the game ended more than likely means that there's more than likely going to be a second.

I really hope the DLC adds infected modes.

Some sort of horde mode where your team can set up a camp to defend from the infected.

There should also be another supply raid with infected a long with an infection mode, where if you get bitten you become infected i.e. infection on Halo.

this game will have 2 online DLC, bhope 1 of them is co-op mode
theDECAY  +   664d ago
Some of those concepts look a little too much like the Necromorphs from Dead Space. I wouldn't want that comparison to be made. The original Dead Space was pretty great, but it's on a different level and has a way different tone that TLOU.
