Naughty Dog has confirmed that it will be releasing a brand-new free multiplayer mode called “Interrogation” for The Last of Us in the game’s next update.
Interrogation is a cooperative multiplayer mode in which players must pull off five special interrogation executions in order to gather intel which makes the opposition team’s hidden lockbox show up on the mini-map. Once this happens, the game turns into something similar to Capture the Flag, with the lockbox being the prize.
The new interrogation takedown takes longer than a regular execution, and it can be interrupted at anytime, in which case the victim dies before the attacker gains the intel.
Patch 1.03 will make a handful of other tweaks, including an increase to revive range, and the ability for players to take damage during executions. The matchmaking system will also be updated.
