RUMOR: Last Of Us Multiplayer Leaked

The Last of Us, Naughty Dog‘s exciting new IP, will be released within the next couple of weeks. Coming from the developers who created the Uncharted franchise along with Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, expectations are rightfully high for the newest game. Recently, the developers stated that the game will feature a multiplayer that will be “very unique.” According to leaks today, they were completely right.

The details were posted on Pastebin and answers many questions that people have been asking about the multiplayer facet, as the developers continue to keep mute over the concrete details. They were found in the code for the recently released demo, available if you had pre ordered God of War: Ascension, and subsequently posted. A user on Gamespot UK forums summarized the details nicely from the code for us.

There is a mode in the multiplayer that has been called Clans. It tasks the players with building a clan (surprisingly) to protect against “hordes” of enemies from the game (Infected, AI or player clans were suggested). Like the single player, you can craft weapons to use in the multiplayer side to aide your survival chances. The maps are big and open, maybe to the point of free roaming and feature randomly generated events which can help you or hinder you dependent on the nature of the event. Code also says that the game will have Uncharted-like loadouts. In Uncharted’s multiplayer sections, the game allowed you to choose primary and secondary weapons along with grenades and certain abilities, how much of these will be similar is yet to be seen with the exception of boosters. “Boosters are back from UC3, but completely redesigned and works in a colossally different way (non-spammable and some are one-time use)” says the forum member.

The forum poster likened the way it sounds to The Walking Dead, the hugely popular zombie show based on a comic where a group of survivors scavenge for supplies and try to stay alive. As The Walking Dead is a great show, there is now a similar expectation of greatness, for The Last of Us’  multiplayer, which is saying something as the game itself is already being held to high expectations.

That Last Of Us will be released on the 14th of June 2013 for the PlayStation 3 system. We will find out then whether these details are true or false. Stay tuned to Leviathyn for any more details in the next few weeks.
