7h ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared details today on how The Last of Us Remastered enhances multiplayer on the PlayStation 4 console.

Below are the details, as follows: The Last of Us Remastered launches next week in North America.

We'll be revealing some upcoming DLC and streaming a basic introduction to the multiplayer mode, Factions, live later this week over on our Twitch channel. We plan to show off the new features for PS4 as well as give our primer for those not familiar with the mode on Thursday, July 24th at 11:30 AM Pacific and 5:30 PM Pacific.

If you can't watch the Twitch stream, we asked Erin Daly, Lead Multiplayer Designer, and Quentin Cobb, Game Designer, a couple of questions about Factions multiplayer mode in the game. If you're new to the world of Factions, this is a great primer.

If you're a hardened survivor with a clan that never diminishes, read on to hear about some exciting developments we were able to make in The Last of Us Remastered.

I was part of the original team that created WipeOut back in the mid '90s for PlayStation, and I have always loved combat racers and driving games above all other genres - games like Micro Machines and Mario Kart.

So when we were looking at building a new racer, it felt natural to reference those classics when crafting Table Top Racing. We set out to capture some of that essence of what made them so much fun, and I think we've done a pretty good job on that front!

Table Top Racing features a host of crazy tracks complete with shortcuts, over-sized obstacles, jumps, and all manner of other hazards. As the game picks up speed, you need to understand the best racing lines and drift momentum you can get with some of the later cars - it's pretty frantic.

We've included one shot weapon power-ups which give players a temporary advantage, be it a speed boost, missile...
