Naughty Dog Standalone Factions Multiplayer Game Concept Art Revealed
Neil Druckmann, co-president of Naughty Dog, has revealed the first ever concept art for the studio’s forthcoming Factions multiplayer game during the Summer Game Fest. According to Druckmann, the game is massive. It’s as big as any of the single-player games that Naughty Dog has done.
Storytelling will have an important role to play in this standalone Factions multiplayer game from Naughty Dog. Druckmann said that the way the studio is telling its story is very unique.
The unnamed game has a brand new cast of characters, and takes place in the northern part of the United States. Druckmann hinted that the location may be familiar to diehard Naughty Dog fans.
Druckmann said that fans have been waiting to hear more details regarding the multiplayer game in development at Naughty Dog, and the studio will not disappoint them. He said that fans should expect to hear a lot more about the game next year.
Naughty Dog’s multiplayer game is headed by Vinit Agarwal, Anthony Newman, and Joe Pettinati. Agarwal took to Twitter to share his excitement for the project, and how the studio’s previous multiplayer offerings inspired him to become a part of it. He further stated that he can’t wait to reveal more details on what the incredible team at Naughty Dog is building for this multiplayer game.
Excited to share this image!
My love for The Last of Us & @Naughty_Dog's MP modes inspired me to join the studio. Co-directing the first standalone online experience, one of our biggest efforts ever, is a dream. Can’t wait to reveal more of what this incredible team is building! pic.twitter.com/nPlZRPtn74

Druckmann also revealed The Last of Us Remake during the Summer Game Fest. Previously, it was unofficially leaked through the PlayStation Direct website, where a pre-order for the game went up earlier.
Although pictures can no longer be viewed, the game’s pre-order page is still available. It appears that the game is priced at $69.99, which is equivalent to a full-priced PS5 title. Because there is no mention of a PS4 version on the website, it’s reasonable to presume this is a current-generation exclusive.
