The Last of Us gets new multiplayer mode, free with latest patch

Naughty Dog has released a new The Last of Us multiplayer mode called Interrogation, which comes free as part of the game's 1.03 update.

A twist on traditional Capture the Flag modes, Interrogation plays out in two parts: teams must first interrogate the opposing team to locate their "lockbox" and then open the lockbox to secure a win.

Interrogations are performed by activating special executions or shiv kills, though the lengthy animation means the risk of performing one and leaving yourself open is significantly higher than usual.

Interrogating five players then gives your team the combination for the opposing team’s lockbox. Attempts at opening a lockbox may be interrupted by taking damage, while a lockbox reveal gives the defending team a small window of opportunity to prepare for the ensuing assault.

While it sounds confusing on paper, Interrogation looks to adhere to the tense, slower-paced nature of The Last of Us’ other multiplayer modes.

The new update also includes a number of gameplay tweaks. These include an increased revive range for downed players, item box adjustments, the ability to interrupt special executions, improved match-making based on player level, and other minor fixes for recurring bugs.
