The Last Of Us 1.03 Patch Has Tweaks, New Multiplayer Mode

If you're still enjoying the intense multiplayer action in The Last Of Us, you'll be happy to hear about a new update.

Naughty Dog has announced the release of the 1.03 patch for Naughty Dog's masterpiece. This update includes various tweaks, changes to the matchmaking system, a fresh re-balancing, and an all-new mode: Interrogation.

Interrogation is a four-on-four, two-stage mode where teams must attempt to gather certain information, which will lead to a safe filled with survival supplies. Players have to actually interrogate opponents to acquire 5 important clues, which will ultimately reveal the location of the safe. It'll be interesting to see exactly how this questioning process occurs, and what will make a captured individual spill his guts... Are we talking torture here...?

They've also increased the ally revival range, and we'll now be able to interrupt executions (and interrogations) as they're happening. The matchmaking system will now do a better job of connecting players at similar experience levels and finally, if your team totally decimates the other in a match, you will receive greater rewards. So, if you want to check out the revamped multiplayer - and you really wanna try that Interrogation mode - go download this new patch now.

I wish Gearbox would stop supporting Borderlands 2, so I can try out the mp in TLoU. Seriously though, Ive been watching a lot of videos on the mp and it looks amazing. If I had more time Id probably spend that time playing this games mp mode.

This Interrogation mode sounds awfully intriguing as well.

Get on it, bigrailer! We're friends on PSN so we can party up if you want (and if I don't have a party myself). LOL TLOU's multiplayer is really fun and it's a lot better when you're playing with friends.

Believe it or not, I have yet to get the game lol. It will have to wait because GTA5 is around the corner. I'm going to wait for the Game of The Year edition or something before I get it.

I remember playing a game or two with you a few weeks back and it's been great! It's also good to know that the game got some of your friends to stop playing CoD. LOL

Remember when Squaresoft had covers like this back in the PSX days?

Yup, I used 3d max in college. Man it was tiresome just making something for my demo reel.

"interrogations" will be simply taking a person down then running over and instead of executions you'll interrogate them, not sure if the actions will be different or not

I know it comes down to personal preference but I beg to differ. TLOU's MP has been really fun for me and a lot of my friends that we haven't played any other multiplayer games since the game launched.

I loved the concepts but I would have prefered a mouse and keyboard as that is what I am used to. Also the matchmaking blew but this patch looks like it would fix a lot of my problems with it.

I actually liked the MP more than the SP gameplay wise, I dug the story in SP but gameplay against AI no matter how good was meh for me. Humans players however can always find a way to give you crazy once in a life time moments that no scripted set piece can ever do.

You're crazy sir/ma'am. Mp on TLOU is so refreshing and really intense. Gets better as you progress too.

I've played a few rounds of Interrogation Mode earlier with my friends and had a lot of fun with it. We needed to almost completely change the way we approach the game because it plays a bit differently than the two older modes.

That said, I'd still like to see a mode similar to Uncharted's co-op Survival mode where my friends and I try to survive waves after waves of enemies. It'll be fun to gang up on those runners, clickers, and bloaters. LOL
