"You don't say?"

The Last of Us' plaudits may mostly stem from the heart wrenching tale at the core of its campaign, but its multiplayer was a bit of an overlooked gem. Fusing the very best of old-school SOCOM with the release's survival theme, it was surprisingly strong – and the factions-based metagame, which pulled data from your Facebook page if you allowed it, was merely the icing on the post-apocalyptic cake.

We're excited, then, to see where Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's multiplayer goes, with the latest issue of Game Informer magazine confirming that Nathan Drake and crew will be taking the fight online all over again. The previous entry focused on set-piece arenas, which wore thin pretty quick, so we're hoping to see some real evolution this time around. Unfortunately, there aren't any details at this early stage, other than the feature's inevitable inclusion.

Is there anything in particular that you'd like to see make the cut? Given that we got a glimpse of it during the sequel's recent PlayStation Experience demo, we reckon that the protagonist's grappling hook will probably be implemented in some way – but are there any other gameplay mechanics or modes that you're especially eager to join the ranks? Drop some cheesy one-liners in the comments section below.
