Multiplayer Ellie Skin Theory (Possible Spoilers? Maybe?)

[ Edited ]
32 replies 817 views Edited Jan 1, 2013

 

I was (again) looking through the preorder items you get at Gamestop and I figured something. You get bonus skins for Joel and Ellie, which struck me as weird. If she is a teenager, why would she be a playable character in the multiplayer? You couldn't play as teenage drake in multiplayer, assuming because you can't kill a minor in a video game. And you only get these bonus skins after completing the game. So... where am I gettng at? Toward the end of the game, you might get to play as an older Ellie in single player, which opens up the possibility that Joel dies at the end OR you get to play as an old Joel. But, from this evidence, I am almost convinced that we get to see an older Ellie. Thoughts? Am I overanalyzing the crap out of this?

The skins could be for single player.

 

Or for co-op, in which the player using Ellie might not get killed.

The thing is, the Survival pack is all for multiplayer.

If you are implying Ellie will be playable in the competetive multiplayer, Im telling you right now it's not going to happen. Hell even co-op would be pushing it, the skins are for campaign. Notice how you have to beat the game first before you can use the skins? Just like Uncharted.

I'm actually implying that we get to use an older version of Ellie. The reason we have to beat the game is perhaps not to tell us any spoilers

That sounds quite plausible, but I can foresee a problem- what if someone plays the MP before completing the campaign, and sees someone using the older Ellie skin? In order to avoid spoilers, I think ND would want to wait sometime after the release of the game before revealing such a skin.

I Uncharted 2 you had to beat the campaign on Crushing to unlock a certain skin in multiplayer (can't remember which one, was it Marco Polo?) so playing as Ellie in competitive multiplayer could theoretically happen.

And by the time you're done reading this, you'll realize that this is just my sig

Ah, I just sort of skimmed through your op, my fault. What your suggesting could be possible, I don't really think the game would skip that far ahead, but the again ND totally caught me by surprise with Young Nate so anything is possible.

What about in Uncharted 3 where you can see young Marlowe and Young Sully? They could be just saying that you can only use this skin once you beat the game to prevent from just saying, "Old Joel" or "Adult Ellie", which would be spoilers

...Its says that you unlock it after beating the single player game, as in you can use the skin in single player, after you beat the SP once...
