The Last of Us to Feature Something ‘Online’

By now, it’s almost a given that every big, triple A-developed game will include some sort of online functionality – either as a way to stop people from selling the game once they’re done with it, or to prolong its lifespan in the hands of consumers and the marketplace.

Well, as it turns out, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us won’t be any different. In the latest issue of Game Informer, their cover game is Naughty Dog’s take on the zombie (enemies aren’t really zombies but a bit similar) genre. The issue – whose contents have been spilled and posted by someone at NeoGaf, reveals a few things about Naughty Dog’s latest game.

The game’s director, Bruce Straley states, “We’re going to have some sort of online component” and added, “We’re working on a bunch of ideas, but we haven’t nailed anything down. We definitely know it’s going to be awesome.”

While it’s easy to think that it will be co-op, the developer has confirmed that the game’s main campaign will be a single-player focused affair. So, does this mean online will be competitive multiplayer? Co-op action in timed stages? For the full details, get the latest issue of Game Informer with The Last of Us cover that’s out now.
