RUMOUR: Multiplayer Details For The Last Of Us Leaked

Clans, Open World Gameplay & Missions Mentioned

We’re still waiting for official word on what the secretive multiplayer component of The Last Of Us will contain, the sleuths of the internet have been hard at work once again. In a post on the Gamespot forums, alleged details for what players can expect to find when heading online have been datamined from the source code. We have the details after the jump.

Banding together into Clans, players will find themselves in an open world similar to Red Dead Redemptions multiplayer, where they will fight for survival against the infected as well as bands of marauders. Training up clan members, players will be responsible for gathering weapons and medicine, completing missions to ensure their clan’s safety. We have the full list of info from the alleged leak below:

Overall Summary of the Multiplayer Leak:

- New feature called "Clans"

- The clan-based system and recruiting is essential to survive hordes of infected (possibly AI or player based clans)

- Possibly free-roam / Big open maps

- You can Craft weapons / Items in Multiplayer from all the supplies you gather

- The Multiplayer has certain random events (sort of like RDR) that happen in your playthrough. Some of which can threaten or help your clan

- The Multiplayer has mini-missions structured for you like surviving a certain amount of time, etc

- You can train Clan members (in what way, its still not clear)

- Depending on how well you train your clan members, you can do rescue missions to free hostages taken during the outbreak

- You'll need to gather supplies to survive (your clan can gather supplies too to be well equipped)

- You can aquire medicines / antibiotics from looting dead bodies throughout your playthrough

- You have 3 matches to complete a Mission (how this works its still unclear)

- Uncharted 3-like, Loadouts makes a comback

- Character Customization possibly back too

- list of usable items for crafting/weapons for MP (This is a bit Spoiler-ish, so be carefull)

- Crouching makes you more accurate by reducing weapon sway

- Mission performance determines how many people you  gain or lose

- Mission performance also determines how many One-Use Boosters you earn

- You can spawn next to your teammates

- Boosters are back from UC3, but completeely redesigned and works in a colossaly different way (non-spammable and some are one-time use)

- There might be certain parts of the maps that are contaminated with viruses, you'll need to search/loot for masks or risk getting infected

- Your teammates / Clan members can get infected

All of this remains unconfirmed for now, but if the above does turn out to be true we could be in for something very special when The Last Of Us launches on PS3 later this month. Matt is currently fighting his way through the review as we speak, so be on the lookout for our definitive review very soon. [GameSpot UK Forums]
