The Last of Us update adds new multiplayer mode


Naughty Dog has released a significant The Last of Us update. In addition to addressing multiplayer balance issues and bug fixes, game update 1.03 introduces a new tactical multiplayer mode called Interrogation.

Interrogation sees teams vying to defend supply caches while trying to raid the opposing team's. To locate the other team's safe, players must hold enemies still and interrogate them instead of killing them, leaving themselves open to attack. Gather enough intel and they’ll be able to mount a raid on the opposing team’s supplies.

Naughty Dog also plans to release three DLC packs for the game, one campaign add-on and two multiplayer ones.

Update 1.03 features:

  • Increased revive range
  • Adjusted balance on item cast locations on a few maps
  • Can prevent an execution by shooting the executioner, canceling the animation
  • Bug fixes related to intro cameras at the start of a match
  • Improved matchmaking for better game balance
  • Fixed item caches awarding too much to players who've just made a comeback

    Awesome, Last of Us is the first game in a long time to get me hooked in its multiplayer offerings. Add me on PSN, we'll kick some ass. MoondogM9

    This sounds like a great update! Not just because of the new mode, but because the balance fixes sound like a Godsend. Scoring last ditch executions without being canceled was cheap and rewarded mindless kamikaze tactics, which is counter intuitive of how the game should play. Reviving was rather hard, so making it easier also helps. Most of all though, improving the matchmaking! I really hope they did because before it was truly flawed at best. Nothing more infuriating than to suddenly find yourself in a room where you are ranked15 weeks at best, and all your teammates are all between 1 to 7 weeks, against a group that has more than two 24+ weeks old and other overly experienced players.

    Happy for a new mode! Already unlocked everything in a matter of a couple weeks haha. Excited there is a new thing to play!
