No there won't be any co-op action going on during the story campaign of Naughty Dog's The last of Us, despite there being a spare protagonist on screen. There will be multiplayer though.

It's a purely single-player affair but they are "supporting multiplayer" but the studio are "not ready to talk" about the details yet. The Last of Us is bound for PlayStation 3 in 2013 sometime.

The story follows a man and teenage girl relying on one another to survive a post apocalypse world where a disease almost wiped us out. Strong AI will have to make do.

"We are supporting multiplayer with The Last of Us," creative director Neil Druckmann told Gaming Examiner. "We're not ready to talk about the details of how multiplayer will be implemented, however we can say that it is not co-op within the main campaign."

"Strong AI is an important focus for The Last of Us," he continued.

"Similar to how we’ve designed the enemy AI to feature dynamic, realistic opponents, we’ve also designed Ellie to be a very capable ally who provides vital mutual aid to Joel in overcoming obstacles. In and out of combat situations, Ellie will be a valuable resource throughout the game."

"She’ll not only throw bricks at assailants but she’ll also be critical for scavenging, solving puzzles and tipping the balance of power in their favor as Joel and Ellie struggle to survive the harsh realities of the post pandemic world."

The Last of Us releases exclusively on PS3 in 2013. Check out the dynamic duo below.
