Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has appeared at Summer Game Fest and lifted the lid a little on The Last of Us Factions, the full standalone multiplayer game based in The Last of Us universe.
Unveiling a piece of concept art for the game, we can see two individuals on a rooftop scouting out the map beneath them. Druckmann called this standalone game “huge” and notes that it takes place in a different part of the US compared the original game and The Last of Us Part 2.
The game will also have its own storyline separate from Part 1 and Part 2, as well as a brand new cast of characters for the multiplayer game. Unfortunately, we won’t see more of the game until 2023, however, you can replay the first game in a remake of the first game with The Last of Us Remake, whose release date is set for September 2.
You can check out a summary of the details below from ‘Shinobi602‘.
