Sony might well have delivered some devastating news to players waiting around for The Last of Us Part 2 to be released, as PlayStation appears to have hinted at the absence of a multiplayer mode. 

The rumor mill has been turning endlessly for the upcoming title as Naughty Dog continue to keep their cards firmly against their chest, after not appearing at this year’s E3 2019 trade fair, where many might have been expecting a potential release date to come. 

Now, though, it looks as if fans have been dealt another huge blow just days after the event, as a piece of PlayStation’s own packaging seems to rule out the support of multiplayer in the upcoming title. 

toochuy, RedditPlayStation’s packaging might have just revealed The Last of Us Part 2 to be a single player only game.

Reddit user toochuy claims to have spotted some interesting small print on PlayStation’s Days of Play box, which appears to rule out online multiplayer support for not just The Last of Us Part 2, but also Days Gone, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man. 

This, of course, completely goes against what fans have already been told about the highly anticipated title – which certainly casts some uncertainty over just how genuine the photo is below.

“Multiplayer is coming back,” the project’s co-director Kurt Margenau said during the 2018 E3 press conference reveal. “We’re not going to talk details yet about what form that takes, but we can confirm there will be multiplayer.”

Naughty DogFans of The Last of Us certainly won’t want to see multiplayer scrapped for Part 2.

Multiplayer was included in the original The Last of Us game in the form of Factions, where players could choose to side with either the Fireflies or Hunters, but would ultimately work to achieve the same goal – survival. 

With the piece of packaging causing a little uncertainty among the fanbase, it’s unclear as to whether or not Naughty Dog will include an online option for their newest zombie game. 

In the past, though, they have been very clear about bringing Factions back again, so we’ll have to wait and see. 


FIFA 21 TOTW 10 predictions: Mahrez, Griezmann, Coman

Team of the Week is back for TOTW in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. However, if our predictions are spot on, it won’t be the best team we’ve ever seen. 

It might feel like FIFA 21 has been out forever, but the game is still in its infancy as Ultimate Team promos continue to roll out.

We’ve had Rulebreakers, Black Friday, Record Breakers, and Road to the Final get underway already – and we can even start to look forward to FUTMas in the coming days as December is about to get underway.

Amongst all the pop-up promos, Team of the Week remains a constant. We’ve had a best of Team of the Week appar already as well, but away from that, the spotlight turns to TOTW 10 and what that could offer.

Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann should feature in TOTW 10.

Truth be told, if our predictions are spot on, it won’t be the best Team of the Week that’s ever graced FIFA – purely because it looks like it’s lacking big names. 

Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Barcelona’s Antoine Greizmann, and Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman look to be the standout players – with plenty of solid, if unspectacular cards, also making their way in. 

Karl Toko-Ekambi played a part in all three of Lyon’s goals in their win over Reims, so he’s in – which should help Ligue 1 squad owners. Similarly, RB Leipizig’s Angelino deserves a boost after his performance, as does Leeds United’s Raphinha.

  • GK: Sam Johnstone – West Bromwich Albion
  • GK: Fernando Pacheco – Alaves
  • LB: Angelino – RB Leipzig
  • RB: Ruben Aguilar – AS Monaco
  • RB: Gaetano Letizia – Benevento
  • CB: Alessio Romangoli – AC Milan

  • CM: Teun Koopmeiners – AZ Alkmaar
  • CM: Miguel Veloso – Hellas Verona
  • RM: Akihiro Ienaga – Kawasaki-F
  • RM: Raphinha – Leeds United
  • RW: Riyad Mahrez – Manchester City
  • RW: Philip Zinckernagel – FK Bodø/Glimt
  • LW: Karl Toko-Ekambi – Lyon
  • LW: Kingsley Coman – Bayern Munich
  • CAM: Dominik Szoboszlai – RB Salzburg
  • ST: Mbaye Diagne – Galatasary 
  • ST: Antoine Griezmann – Barcelona
  • ST: Wout Weghorst – Wolfsburg
  • ST: Mama Samba Baldé – Dijon

Obviously, we’ve not chosen to give Edison Cavani a slot despite his late-game heroics for Manchester United against Southampton.

The Uruguayan forward doesn’t have a United card in-game, and while EA has given player an IF before a base card, we just don’t know if they’ll do the same here. Either way, we’ll just have to see what happens on Wednesday, December 2!
