Naughty Dog has announced a new patch update (1.03) headed to The Last of Us’ multiplayer which will be adding a slew of new tweaks and an entirely new feature titled “Interrogation Mode.”
Revealed on the developer’s blog, Interrogation Mode will feature two teams made up of four players, the same as the other two modes the game already offers. However, this mode will focus around trying to steal the other team’s supplies. To get access to the supplies, each team needs to perform five interrogations which is done by shivving enemies or pressing Triangle to interact with fallen enemies whilst they’re wounded.
See it in action below.
In addition to the brand new mode, these are the afore mentioned new tweaks arriving with the update.
- “Revive range has increased slightly (about 1 meter). It’s more difficult to accidentally crawl out of range when a teammate is reviving you now
- Players can prevent opponents from finishing Executions/Interrogations so that the opponent does not receive Parts for the special Execution/Interrogation. (The downed player will still lose their life, but this makes preventing Executions/Interrogations more helpful to your team as you prevent the other team from gaining Parts.)
- Matchmaking update: players should find opponents around their level of experience more often and teams should be balanced more evenly
- Item cache locations adjusted for balance on University, High School, Lakeside, and Downtown
- Starting cameras adjusted so they show your player with greater frequency
- Item cache disbursement tweaked so additional items are given out more fairly
- Winning a Survivors match by a count of 4 rounds to 0 now means your team will get more bonus parts for winning the match by that margin. This applies for games with scores of 4-1, 4-2, etc. as well. Rewards are tiered by how dominant your team is. This system is in place for Interrogation mode as well.”
The best part about this news is you won’t have to wait long to play it as it’s out in the next 24 hours according to the game’s director, Bruce Straley.
