The Last of Us 1.03 patch adds Interrogation multiplayer mode

1.03 update adds general gameplay tweaks and new Interrogation mode; patch is available now.

Naughty Dog has announced the release of a 1.03 patch (via Kotaku) for The Last of Us. Major updates include general tweaks, changes to the matchmaking system, rebalancing of post-match rewards, and the addition of a new multiplayer mode called Interrogation.

The latter is described as a four-on-four, two-stage, objective-based game type where teams fight for information, leading to a safe stocked with supplies. Players must interrogate opponents to acquire five pieces of intel, which reveals a location. It's then a race to loot the cache before the other side can do the same.

Other multiplayer changes include an increase in the friendly player revival range, the opportunity to interrupt executions and interrogations in progress, and an update to the matchmaking system to better connect players of similar experience levels. Dominating an opposing team by a large margin will now also dole out a greater number of parts as rewards for winning the match. This system will also affect the new Interrogation mode. The 1.03 patch is available now.

Wow, can you imagine if ND made a splinter cell game.  The quality and in depth story would be off the chain.

this mode is nearly unplayable due to the fact people leave before they lose and it kicks you out of the game because host left or that it nearly always ends in a draw i managed to play one game to the end out of like 20 ish maybe it was my bad luck i dont know.

Awesome!  Btw..if this was call of duty, it wouldn't be a 93mb patch, it would be a whole new freakin' game they would sell the year after lol

I can't believe how deceitful these game developers are. The video above have such a sweet Ellie, but in the game every other word is f this, or f that. I was appalled at her behavior. And yet there is no hint of her profanity in the video they release to the public. I  hope every daughter of every game developer grows up to be just like Ellie. Then they would maybe understand how wrong her character is.

It's the same way to special executions.

This mode is fun until the fight goes to the strongboxes. Then the campers take prominence. Sad.

TLOS ranking is pretty bad. I see so many people on it "boosting" its not even funny.

Killzone Mercenary is doing something similar: Interrogate an incapacitated enemy and find out the enemy troop locations.

They just now put in execution interruption? Now? No shit that needs to be in there.

I love my 360 but we all know that this would have been a $10 DLC if it came out on that system.

This is the best multi player experience I've had on console in a really long time.  Kudos to Naughty Dog.

I totally forgot TLOU had a multilayer mode, I beaten the game and didn't even notice it.

Really fun mode, just like the other 2. Everyone should try it. Remember to be sure you are alone when interrogating, or you're dead. I would advise Shiving people, as it's quicker and also counts.

My buddy got this game, played through the campaign once, and then played a single round of multiplayer before getting killed and giving up forever.

Videogames are wasted on him. I asked him if he would replay the campaign... emphatic NO. And I know he won't touch the multiplayer again. One bad experience, and that's it, game over.

Uhg. Give me your PS3 you SCRUB!

Sweet. And the new game mode isn't even a part of the Season Pass. Bonus!

Interrogation?  Uh oh, I think this game might get blamed for waterboarding at Guantanamo.

The guards were playing The Last of Us only moments before waterboarding a prisoner.

I've never been kicked because a host left. Your connection must suck.

@TheTrueProphet 

You.. would teach people to pass judgement on others based upon their use of profanity? What do you think this might indicate about your own character?

SUNDRAGONJ

@TheTrueProphet  Well, you grow up in that environment and see what comes out of your mouth. How dare you call a character wrong did you write her?!  Did you come up with the way she interacts with this post-apocalyptic world? No. So you should shut your ignorant trap of a mouth and never play a game again.

@TheTrueProphet The only illusion of deceit comes from individuals that can't put 2 and 2 together. Don't blame the game devs for your ignorance.

@TheTrueProphet i think your a true idiot who does not understand real life, how a person would be or act in that environment and you just need to go back to school and learn a thing or two.

@Axile11 It's easy just DOWN the enemy then "special" execute them or shiv them. In this mode any "special" execution is now an "interrogation", as are shiv executions.

@MacMad  Well how else do you propose one defends a box that doesn't move? Now I get that campers are so annoying in other modes but you really shouldn't complain on this mode since that is the only way for you to defend your box. You just have to have good teamwork, communication, and skills to out wit and think your opponents.

@MacMad true i agree you can get around it if the other team are crap but most of the time people just camp hard and it goes to a stalemate

@Pyro77 It would be a 10 dollar DLC on PS3 too if it wasn't a first party game bud.

@brunod_f 

I have just the opposite problem.  I'm so addicted to the online modes that I have not yet finished the single player.  I wish all my"problems" were this fun to sort out.

@kevin_42 well thats stupid why buy a game if you arent replaying it

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX I wouldn't call that sweet. The season pass is a pointless waste of money just like it is for BSI because the season pass doesn't actually give you access to anything.

Yeah I agree. However I don't think I'm going have much time to play this MP before GTA comes down the pipe and steals all my free time.

I agree too bad I'm too addicted to FFXIV to enjoy the new additions to the game.

@wrestlemaniaw They said they tried it and didn't like it so we most likely won't be seeing that pan out :/

@Grenadeh @Pyro77 i bought the game £38 from CEx and had to buy a new network code for£8 to play the multiplayer . so whats free?

brunod_f
brunod_f

@Pyro77 hahahh yeah i'm pretty sure the mp is a lot addictive, and that worries me cause i'm having a major in college to take care of this year. Hope you finish sp soon, it's awesome too.

@SeannTHEsheep @Grenadeh @Pyro77 You paid full price for a second hand game with no online code!! What's wrong with you! Never ever buy from CEX, they are the biggest possible rip off when buying games. I got my copy brand new at launch for £30.

@csvichf @Sefrix @wrestlemaniaw I agree. I was disappointed that they couldn't do anything with the infected in a co-op or mp situation. Given the nature of the game, I thought that would be the one thing we would see.
