We've been spending some time playing The Last of Us recently and as much as we'd like to tell you all about the game right this instant, it isn't worth breaking the embargo over and having Naughty Dog field agents swarming over the office faster than a Clicker can turn you into dinner.
What we can tell you, however, is that The Last of Us multiplayer is a very unique experience, and pretty different than anything else out there right now. This should be expected, it's Naughty Dog after all, but here's the rundown:
Note: this post will contain mild spoilers from The Last of Us, you are forewarned.
The Last of Us MP is called Factions, and requires you to choose an allegiance.
You have two choices in this; Fireflies and Hunters.
Two game modes will be available from the outset; Supply Raid and Survivors.
In Supply Raid, you and your team vie for the supplies strewn about the map. These supplies are vital for crafting weapons and making your team stronger. Your team has a shared pool of lives and the match continues until one side's lives are gone.
Survivors is a but more unforgiving, as every player has one life per round. The match ends when one player is left standing.
