The Last of Us 2, presumably, was a game that took a lot of storms on its story, but it is possible to say that there is a consensus that it has done an excellent job from the technical side. Naught Dog, after undertaking such a successful business, is now preparing to set sail for new games. But first, they need to complete their studies on TLoU 2, isn’t it that much? These next studies are about multiplayer content.
Originally, multiplayer content was planned when TLoU 2 was released, but this plan was later shelved, Naughty Dog focused on the single player scenario part and left the multiplayer modes for a later period. Naughty Dog has confirmed that they are developing something that is a continuation of the Factions mode in the first game, but it was also stated that this will not be the module of TLoU 2. This was interpreted by some as pointing out the possibility of an independent Factions 2 set in the TLoU 2 world.
Now it seems that it is time for these contents. According to the arguments; Naughty Dog may be preparing to bring a battle royale mode to TLoU 2. The source of this argument is some newly revealed multiplayer documents. On the YouTube channel Speclizer, which is known for data mining related to TLoU 2, it is informed that documents related to some mods that can be added to the game have been discovered.
As can be seen in the image, a large map of different regions in TLoU 2 is the subject of speech. It is assumed that a Battle Royale mode is in preparation, not only because of the size of the map, but also because of other details such as the compass, the number of players, the emote wheel.
I don’t know if it comes as a mod to be added to the game or whether it is presented as a standalone game. However, we can say that multiplayer content in TLoU 2 is on the way. Naturally, in order to be able to speak clearly about this bet, we need to wait for the announcement by Naughty Dog, let’s see what kind of surprise they have for us.
