The Last Of Us Map Pack Revealed, Single Player DLC Update

If you've been waiting to expand upon the amazing experience that is The Last Of Us, your wait is almost over.

Naughty Dog has revealed the first batch of downloadable content; it's called the Abandoned Territories Map Pack and it will be ready to go on October 15. This is included if you purchased the $20 Season Pass; not sure what it will retail for separately, but you can probably guess.

The Pack will include four new multiplayer maps: Suburbs, Bus Depot, Hometown and Bookstore. This is pretty standard stuff but perhaps even more interesting is the developer's update on their single-player DLC: They say they've just completed "a long casting process" for a new character, and performance capture will begin next week. This untitled bit of content is currently scheduled to release in either December or January; we're hoping sooner rather than later. As for the third piece of DLC, that will be multiplayer-oriented and is slated for the first half of 2014.

Lastly, bonus items were added to the Season Pass today. There are no fewer than 60 different heads for multiplayer characters, ranging from a Pigskin Hat to a Nightmare Mask. Try 'em on.

The only complaint I would have is that you cant play characters like in uncharted. Multiplayer feels disconnected from the main story without the characters and infected.

I assume the New heads dlc might bring them in, but I assume you need an ellie body to go with that.

@Godsman: I agree with the MP being distant thing. I mean according to TLoU universe, the infected are attracted to sound so why arent they appearing in the maps when everyone seems to blast each other away. + the maps seems to be part of an area from SP too.

Multiplayer is amazing I liked it more than the SP :)

My only complaint is that I honesty am a mouse and keyboard guy and this for me would have been just about the best multiplayer game if I could have used mouse and keyboard.

Anyway ethird I strongly disagree with your statement.

Interested to see this sp dlc. Im not a fan if it expands on the original storym however with this "new" character it would be cool to see an alternate story of characters.

I'm hoping it has to do with the captain and the little community he ended up building...before someone left that door open/unlocked!

I rather they keep the effort to make TLOU 2. If they have free time thats fine, but to go through all the effort just for an hour or two gameplay wont satisfy me. It'll just delay the release of a sequel

That logic is flawed. If the amount of gameplay in the SP DLC is only an hour or two, can't imagine the delay(if any) caused by its development would have much of an impact on an unconfirmed sequel. And many have already bought the season pass knowing SP content was on its way. ND can't exactly go back on that and leave those people high and dry.

Not saying ND should take his word back. I mean there shouldnt be SP dlc to begin with. Considering the quality of the game, and they are still at casting, it probably a long way to go. It will definitely take time and effort off from uncharted 4 or next ip.

From a business point of view, dlc targets the 3million Last of Us owners, sequel targets 80 million ps3 owners. Many sequels do outsell the first titles.

Godsman -

I know what youre saying. And I agree. I dont like to see dlc that continues a story thats already been told in the developers vision. If they feel the need to continue the story do it with a proper sequel.

However, if they used a different characters story like say, Ish, then they can expand on the universe without disrupting the main story that was finished. Thats how I feel they should proceed. I just get an unneasy feeling when there was a conclusion to the story but its continued without being a sequel. Like its just there. I dont like that.

ND has a different team working on Uncharted games so your worrying is pointless. Not sure why anyone would complain about getting more content to a great game.

Can't wait for the SP DLC! What a nice addition to a story that's already worth playing more than twice!

Ummm... pass on MP. Took a look at it and just not my thing, but the quality is there for the genre for MP.

As for the single player I think the DLC purchase will depend on exactly where in the time line it takes place. If the single player is a prequel dealing with Ellie and her best friend, I will pass. In fact if its anything that is a lead in to a portion of the game where I know how it ends... I will pass. Reason I say that is because I find those to be just a cash grab. If its characters, such a Bill after Joel and Ellie leave him, okay with that. That might be interesting and fun.

We shall have to wait and see. Sooner hopefully rather than in to the new year as it seems they are still working on it.

Keep playing!

Some games just shouldn't have M.P. content...this is one of them. I would be FAR more interested if they could keep expanding the single player missions.

umm.... people who like playing the games, thats who. i still like playing ps2 games, even ps1 games because i like playing them. not gonna let a new console generation to stop me from doing that. you bought last of us knowing ps4 is coming and you still bought season pass. thats on you. theyre not gonna release dlc that fast. one reason for dlc is to keep people interested when they start to lose interest. thats when they reel them back in. bf3 dlc came at set intervals and since i love playing the game, i playedit since lauch till now. i have people on my list still playing borderlands and killzone 3 still.

exactly they release DLC to stop people from losing interest.
after waiting 6 f*cking months people have lost interest!
very few are going to throw away 200+ bucks for their ps3, plus 40+ bucks for the game, plus their time, so they can play DLC for a game that released 6 months ago!
especially when they could be playing next gen games, games which their friends are actually playing!

Hopefully they will add zombie survival either 5 or 10 players against waves of zombies in a big map.
