New Multiplayer Mode Coming to The Last of Us

the last of us
PlayStation gamers have waited a long time for any news on the first batch of DLC for The Last of Us, Naughty Dog’s latest groundbreaking game for the PlayStation 3. While there has been some rumors about what was in store for us as far as DLC, we finally now have an announcement from Naughty Dog on what to expect first.

The new content is coming along with patch 1.03 of the game which, along with the extra multiplayer game type, fixes a range of issues with the game. ‘Interrogation’ will be available for players to compete against other players as they try to find the opposing team’s lock box and secure the items found within. Think of a mix between normal team deathmatch and a game of clue. After you have downed an opponent, walk up to them to perform a special execution, called an interrogation, and receive special information from them on the location of your opponent’s lock box. You team needs to interrogate five opponents to fully learn the location of their lock box and have it revealed on the map.

At this point your team’s goal is to unlock that box and take the spoils while the other team’s goal is to protect their box while also still interrogating your team to find your box. Check out the video below to get a more detailed explanation of the new game mode.

The rest of patch 1.03 fixes these bugs in the multiplayer part of the game;

  • Revive range has increased. Making it more difficult to crawl out of range while being revived by a teammate.
  • Players can prevent opponents from finishing Executions/Interrogations. The downed player will still lose their life, but this makes preventing Executions/Interrogations more helpful to your team, as you prevent the other team from gaining Parts.
  • Matchmaking has been updated so that matches are more evenly split up based on levels and it should be easier to get into matches with people around your same level.
  • Item cache locations adjusted for balance on University, High School, Lakeside, and Downtown.
  • Starting cameras adjusted so they show your player with greater frequency.
  • Item cache disbursement tweaked so more items are given out more fairly.
  • Winning a Survivors match by a significant amount will net your team more points for being dominant.

Oh, and if you have not logged into The Last of Us recently, patch 1.03 deploys today. So get in there and find some lock boxes! Let us know what you think about the new game mode in the comments below.

    I really need to give the mulltiplayer another go, I didn’t really like it when I tried it. There’s nothing wrong with it honestly, it’s really well made, just not my cup of tea.
