Play news The Last of Us: The standalone multiplayer announced with a picture for Summer Game Fest 2022!
On the Summer Game Fest stage, presenter Geoff Keighley was joined by Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog and creator of The Last of Us. The famous instructor took advantage of the event to talk about his flagship license and announced in passing a new project designed for multiplayer games.
The Last of Us as a duo
The Last of Us license is the core of Summer Game Fest! After the leak about the remake of the first opus and the highlight of the series produced by HBO, Neil Druckmann took advantage of the event to talk about a
The project is still a secret. Without sharing a title or revealing gameplay, this new software presents itself as a The Last of Us multiplayer experience.
We’ve been talking about a multiplayer experience for some time now The Last of Us Part II. As Neil Druckmann explained, this project has grown to such an extent that it is now thought of as a completely independent project offering a story never before told with new characters. The game would “look like previous solo experiences developed by Naughty Dog before, in an even more ambitious way” according to Neil Druckmann himself.
An image that speaks volumes
If the co-president of Naughty Dog did not want to reveal more, he still wanted to share a picture with the community on which it is possible to see two characters, as well as a city in ruins in the background. This important city in the United States was not named by the creator of The Last of Us, but the details in the picture reveal enough to guess the name of this next destination. A larger detail is hidden at the bottom of the picture: it looks like we can see the Golden Gate Bridge, the huge inseparable bridge of San Francisco.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, and as Neil Druckmann points out, we’ll have to wait until next year before we hear more about this new game.
About the summer games party
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on yet another world-class event: Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcing video games coming this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now indispensable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured amazing photos from the Elden Ring; so inevitably the third iteration raises high expectations.
