The Last of Us multiplayer trailer fights to survive

The long silence on The Last of Us' multiplayer modes ended yesterday, and now a trailer appears to have leaked ahead of schedule. Watch survivors battle across faction lines, using their environment both for cover and to craft improvised weaponry.

It's a more dirty and desperate version of Uncharted's 4-on-4 duels, fought not just for victory but for essential supply caches. Even if its meta-campaign of providing for a growing body of refugees doesn't hold interest past The Last of Us' hyped single-player experience, it still looks like a nice bonus.

Check out our most recent preview of Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive, and stay tuned for our review coming soon.

    I don't usually bother with multiplayer but this has me intrigued I guess. I just hope that, if the aim is to survive, there wont be tons of people just camping in a corner until the timers run out.

    Pretty gritty, but I wish I can see the high resolution version of this later...

    Now, I'm pretty pumped for the multiplayer alongside the single-player, too. I think this is an interesting take that emphasizes the survival aspects of the campaign. I liked that you can craft in real-time like the SP, I liked that you're scrounging for supplies, and I liked that it takes place over days with different events you need to deal with to help your group survive. Now I'm looking forward to the whole game, MP and all.

    I think this multiplayer still has potential for the...I hesitate to call them zombies because they aren't really traditional zombies, but if they have another name for them I can't remember it right now, because this is just a small peek at what could possibly be in store. Something like that would be better left off for E3 when they get a lot more time to talk about it.

    I think this is the wrong multiplayer. THey have these great enemies that would work so well with a horde/objective based mode. Instead they are trying to fancy up death match.

    Although its not advertised in this trailer, there will be a Zombies/Horde mode. No worries:)

    I find the lack of zombies disturbing. I was really hoping for a round where players duel it out for a time limit, and then zombies start storming the place and the last man standing has the opportunity to win it for the team, but I really don't think zombies are going to come into this multiplayer at all. It's presence is justified in some way, a lot like Max Payne's look at the warring factions, but if it doesn't include zombies, it just won't fit.

    There will be, it just wasn't shown in this trailer :)
