The lights are on
The story behind Naughty Dog's The Last of Us has rightfully gotten plenty of attention, but the developer is honing the game's multiplayer component with an upcoming free update that includes a new multiplayer mode.
In Interrogation, rival factions endeavor to steal the contents of the opponent's lockbox. In order to find out the location of the lockbox, you must perform timed interrogations of five opponents. After this, you piece together the clues from the interrogations to decipher the actual location of the lockbox. Once you find it, time must then be taken to crack the safe itself – with its countdown timer reset every time you are hit while trying to open it.
This mode comes in the free 1.03 update, which has not been dated, and includes other multiplayer bug fixes and tweaks.
Our Take:I like the sound of the interrogations and how it tweaks the normal capture-the-flag mode. Bonus points for not being infection/horde mode related, too.

So you have to be a Naughty Dog game for your experimental multiplayer components to matter? I see. Let's have ND do the HD-HD remake of FEAR 3 for PS4/Xbox One then. Then we'll see people actually play the damn thing.
This is fantastic! I had no idea the next mode was going to be free. And this looks like it's going to shake up the strategy a lot more than supply raid vs. survivors did. But I hadn't even gotten tired of that yet and I've been playing since launch! So very pleased with my purchase.
This sounds pretty cool. Looking forward to this.
This is already out, by the way! Booted it up today and had a pleasant surprise waiting for me.
I'm glad to see a free update. In the age of DLC they are not as common as they should be. That mode sound incredible awesome!
