Re: Multiplayer ANALYSIS (new info!)

Hey everyone!

 

Launch day is right around the corner and with all the glowing reviews coming in I think it's safe to say that The Last of Us will be fully worth your $60 for the singleplayer alone. But at long last Naughty Dog has unveiled their secretive multiplayer for TLOU which they've dubbed "Factions".

Some are disappointed, others (including myself) are intrigued. Based on what I've read and seen so far I'm actually pretty excited to play Factions and perhaps after this video you'll feel similarly.

I've rounded up the majority of the info released so far (including new details!) and this brief analysis should give you the low-down on all you need to know in preparation for June 14th.

 

Feel free to share what you think of the multiplayer below. Do you think you'll put some serious time into it? I can definitely see the MP becoming a sleeper hit with gamers by carving out a niche not many other titles attempt.

 

Also I'm hoping for some kind of co-op or infected vs suvivors mode via DLC!

I was a little baffled at there only being two modes, however, with such a small team it should work out okay since there are only two things to focus on, and if they can handle more, they'll probably add more via DLC. With only two modes, we don't have to worry about certain lobbies being a ghost town and we have a higher concentraion of players in one section of the game, meaning faster matchmaking and hopefully, less lag.

Agreed. Plus it's better to focus on the basics and get them down (ala UC2) than bite off more than you can chew and have a mess on your hands (*cough* UC3 *cough*).
