The Last of Us is being expanded via Naughty Dog’s 1.03 patch, which in addition to bug fixes and mulitplayer tweaks, is coming loaded with a new mode, Interrogation.
Last of Us Interrogation mode is a complex, deeply team driven versus mode which sees players avoiding kills, and instead siphoning information through shiv kills or traditional assassinations. Five successful victims later, the opposing teams safe is revealed, and the attacking squad makes a dash for the locked goods. Defensive postures and strategic set-ups make assaults difficult, and being shot interrupts all attempts at safe cracking.
Online spaces for Last of Us are dominated by high level clans, but hopefully tweaked matchmaking (which assigns games based on rank) and Interrogation can invigorate Naughty Dog’s uniquely structured versus mode.
