The Last of Us looks like a perfect setting for a online co-op mode for both Joel and Ellie, but that’s not what Naughty Dog has in mind.
“We are supporting multiplayer with The Last of Us,” Neil told Gaming Examiner. “However, we can say that it is not co-op within the main campaign.” and added “[but we’re] not ready to talk about the details of how multiplayer will be implemented.”
Naughty Dog’s Uncharted franchise featured co-op in the online component, various multiplayer modes outside of the core game, so we might see both competitive and cooperative.
The Last of Us is due to hit shelves in 2013.
