Naughty Dog has revealed more information about The Last of Us’ multiplayer mode, including a new trailer. The game’s multiplayer mode is called Factions, and is an extension of the themes you’ll find in the single player game. In Factions you’ll have to pick a side and roll with the Hunters or the Fireflies. Each player starts with a small clan of survivors that you need to keep alive and grow.
There are two modes in which you can accomplish the growth and survival of your Clan. In Supply Raid, you’ll have to scavenge the area and keep your team alive. Your team has a pool of 20 reinforcements. Once the reinforcements have been exhausted, the match will go into sudden death.
In Survivors, you’re going to have to be extremely vigilant. There are no respawns. Once you’re gone you’ve been eliminated until the next round. It’s a best of seven rounds in which the first team to win four rounds wins the match.
Stealthy players can use the Listen Mode to locate enemies and flank them with silenced weapons. Also, teamwork is essential, as fallen teammates can crawl to their allies and be revived, which means sticking together will help everyone out.
