The Last of Us Explores Four Abandoned Territories This Week

Posted by Sammy Barker

A new hope

Much of the critical acclaim pointed at The Last of Us may have focused on Joel and Ellie’s tearful plight, but the multiplayer offered a surprisingly compelling expansion to the main campaign. Fusing the title’s tense survival mechanics with an enjoyable deathmatch experience, the online component has gone on to garner an enormous fanbase. And it’s about to expand this week, as part of the release’s first DLC drop.

As announced last month, the Abandoned Territories map pack will include four brand new derelict arenas: Suburbs, Bus Depot, Hometown, and Bookstore. The expansion will set you back £7.99/$9.99 as a standalone purchase, or will be free if you’ve already stumped up for a Season Pass. The latter promises a further multiplayer add-on, as well as an additional chapter of single-player content.

To coincide with the new stages, Naughty Dog has also prepared a fresh patch. Jumping straight from v1.03 to v1.05, the update augments a number of gameplay and balance improvements, in addition to implementing a new playlist for the DLC maps and tweaking a couple of single player art assets. You can peruse the full list of changes through here. Are you planning to survive the PlayStation 3 exclusive’s latest batch of content? Hoard your resources in the comments section below.

Hey Sammy, you out to dinner? You let TW scoop you on the W_D news ;-)

You get his one all to yourself though:

Ubisoft also delayed racing game The Crew today, pushing that title to sometime in the company's upcoming financial year. This means the earliest the game could be released is April 1, 2014.

I always felt The Crew was going to pale in comparison to Drive Club so this doens't surprise me 1 bit. And Drive Club is free so why buy The Crew? Or just get GT6 on the PS3? (Topic for another day.)

@get2sammyb - Don't hurt yourself. Or the computer screen :-)

I thought maybe you just let TW have this one, you usually post the multplat stuff about 3 hours before NL. It's all good though.

Put me down for being more interested in the single player content as well. The multiplayer isn't bad though and I do have the season pass so I'll be checking this out.
