"For the last time, where is the MacGuffin?"

While it hasn’t got anywhere near as much attention as the stellar single player campaign, The Last of Us’ multiplayer mode is exceptional. A clever blend of Counter Strike and SOCOM, the online extra sees you gathering up supplies and engaging in tense battles to feed and nurture your growing camp of survivors.

And the component’s set to expand imminently with a brand new playlist. Alongside a number of balance tweaks and fixes, patch 1.03 will introduce a new mode named Interrogation. This will see you trying to accrue five special executions or shiv kills on the enemy in order to gain intelligence. Once you’ve gathered enough data, you’ll discover the location of your opponent’s lockbox, which you’ll need to open in order to win the round.

Of course, prising the door of the container apart will take time, giving your foes plenty of opportunity to not only set up defences, but also collect the information that they need to unlock your safe. It sounds suitably tense, and we’re looking forward to giving it a go. You can check out the full list of tweaks on the PlayStation Blog. Are you a fan of The Last of Us’ multiplayer?
