Ok so when you play the multi you are given a choice between the two factions. And once you pick you are stuck with that faction till your clan dies or you survive the 12 weeks. What my concern is how are they going to balance the player count? What if everyone wants to be a Firefly? Then what? You can't assume the community will balance itself. Please ND tell me you have a plan for this.
My concerns from the MP gameplay thread:
1.) What happens if you are choosing the Firefly faction and your friends are choosing the hunters. Can't you partner up with them anymore for Public games?
2.) What if 80% of the community chooses fireflies while only 20% are going with the hunters? It will take ages to find someone in public games! (Unless your faction fails and you can choose to switch to the hunters instead)
3.) "Private match" doesn''t have custom game settings from what I have seen.
4.) Only Headgear seem to be customizable...at least they learned from the UC3 MP team mistakes and you can actually wear a cap AND a mask at the same time for your character as an example. They seem to be strict with colors though... Hunters: blue; Fireflies: yellow.
5.) You CAN'T choose if you want to be a male or female character! It appears like the gender will be randomly selected when you start a match. :/
6.) What happened to co-op? It was basically confirmed with this way back then!: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/The-Last-of
Yeah i have the same concerns me and my friend preordered and when the mp vid came out he was hellbent on being a Firefly while I want to be a Hunter. So if me and him want to play together we have to settle for one faction. Thats not fun
Perhaps it's one of those games, like CS:GO, where before you begin a match, everyone chooses a side before the match starts.
The MP footage of TLOU didn't suggested that. Privates matches do allow to change the team with R2 like in UC3 though.
I dont think so. If anybody saw the multiplayer thread that showed the factions tab showing the teams loadouts maps etc. He starts a private match and he had no choice of team he picked fireflys at the beggining of choosing the factions tab and was auto assigned to fireflys.
