Speaking with Gaming Examiner, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has confirmed that The Last of Us will feature multiplayer. For those who have been following the game since the VGA 2011, this is indeed old news. However, at the time it was unknown as to how the multiplayer would be integrated into The Last of Us. Fans wished that the player would be able to team up with a friend in the main story and play as both characters, Joel and Ellen. Sadly, this possibility can now be put to rest.
“We are supporting multiplayer with The Last of Us,” game director Neil Druckmann told Gaming Examiner. “However, we can say that it is not co-op within the main campaign.”
With Uncharted 3 now behind them, how do you guys feel about Naughty Dog having multiplayer for a game that seems to be more focused on story. Do you believe that they will have yet another hit, like they did with Uncharted 2 and 3?
The Last of Us was recently crowned as the best game of E3 2012 in the Game Critics Awards.
