Neil Druckmann Reveals Some Details On The Last Of Us Multiplayer Title, All-New Story, New Location

Neil Druckmann finally gave fans some small details regarding the studio’s upcoming multiplayer title set in The Last Of Us, which many fans expect to be an evolved form of Factions.

Mainly that there is an all-new story attached with this title, a new city, and that according to Druckmann, this title is just as big as the studio’s single player titles.

On Naughty Dog’s official website, it published a blog post about the upcoming title, addressing the fact that fans have been quite vocal in their desire for another Factions type mode or game.

“It’s no secret that many of you are not only drawn to The Last of Us’ stories but also the game’s original Factions multiplayer. Since The Last of Us Factions’ release almost a decade ago, dedicated players have been vocal about an expansion upon that offering.

However, we can finally announce that we’re creating something much larger than a mode. We’re thrilled to share a piece of concept art from our upcoming multiplayer experience, which is an extremely ambitious undertaking. We’re growing our studio significantly to ensure we build this full-scale, standalone game, with its massive scope and immense world, in a way that fans have come to expect from The Last of Us and Naughty Dog.

We aim to make our newest entry into multiplayer inviting to new players while still a thrilling challenge for more of our seasoned fans. There will be more news to come next year, and we cannot wait to introduce you to the team behind this new experience!”

There will also be a whole new cast of characters involved. who’ve yet to be revealed.

Unfortunately the concept art is all we have for now, and we’ll have to wait until next year to hear anything more. A frustrating announcement for fans for sure, who’ve been waiting some time for any news at all.

Although it is good to hear more about it, or rather to hear anything from Naughty Dog, who’ve largely been quiet of late.

It’ll be interesting to see what the multiplayer title adds to the world of The Last Of Us with its own narrative, and how that’ll even work with a multiplayer game.
