We have more Add-On content coming two weeks from now. From that drop we revealed one map and showed off some of the new weapons on our Twitch channel in July. We’ll detail another new map, the weapons, and some new bundles over the next couple of weeks. Be sure to watch our social channels for latest The Last of Us news and Add-On content all month long. See you online!

Any chance of the Season Pass Exclusive Offering DLC for PS3 getting re-released as cross-buy?

The season pass ended a few weeks ago.

2.1

True – but I still have the PS3 unlock on my account? Surely it should crossover like your FAQ states:
“ALL Add-On content for The Last of Us will be cross buy at launch.”

Please patch matchmaking, I won’t buy any DLC if I can’t find a match in multiplayer.

We are working on it. We have been doing some live updates and will doing a bigger fix as soon as possible once we sort out all issues.

3.2

Very much this. Also please, add a longer time limit or a seperate playlist with no time limit since it’s waaaaay too short. Nothing kills a game of survivors more than the time running out. It really doesn’t encourage stealth gameplay when the time is running out, which should be the encouraged option when losing

3.3

Yeah I’ve had the last of us remastered since friday and I haven’t had one single online game yet. Waiting a half an hour each time before I decide to turn off the game is really not on especially when my american buddies seem to be playing MP with no problem. Work faster Eric

When is the next patch coming? I can’t view any pictures of my FB friends in my TLOU MP clan. It just loads indefinitely. The in-game party chat is also laggy and not as good as PS4’s party chat. Lots of issues in matchmaking.

Also, free maps. Make it a reality.

If you are releasing paid cosmetic dlc i hope it means it’s like Shadow Fall, where these are paid but the maps (two new ones are coming right?) are free. That’s a good model for all involved.

these next gen consoles are nothing but raping yous for cash , things like this should be free .. fair enuff for a map pack . but cosmetic stuff should be free . allready gave yous over £100 on this game buying it for the 3,4 and the season pass . greedy companys

6.1

no, it’s the opposite. free maps and paid cosmetic. best way to do it

6.2

Speak with your wallet and don’t buy. Whats a cosmetic anyway other than just a useless skin.

It’s funny how stuff like this just ‘happens’ to come out right after a game releases.

I remember back in the day when stuff like this were simply unlockables, not means for extortion.

Just don’t support it.

Can I buy the functional match-making dlc please? ;D

How do I download the cross-buy DLC we are eligible for through owning the PS3 Season Pass?

Also, do you plan on patching both single and multiplayer? There are several glitches I have noticed in single player that definitely weren’t present in the PS3 version. There are several gamma and black crush issues, and the subway area (green and foggy) just prior to Bill’s Town looks absolutely foul compared to the PS3 version. Something definitely very wrong there.

I got to admit, I’m having very mixed feelings about the multiplayer in TLOU remastered.
For starters, it is absolutely amazing. I didn’t get to play it on ps3, but I’m having a blast. It’s so tense but so rewarding. Definitely a breath of fresh air.
Now comes the bad. The matchmaking is atrocious. I’ve been kicked out of matches many times, the screen goes black and I return to the menu. Sometimes I get in a match with the game already on its way, that’s hard when you have to win parts to maintain your clan. I expected more from a “remastered” version of an old gen game. Maybe ND didn’t expect so many players?
Next, I’m absolutely fine with charging for cosmetic and superficial things. It helps the developers get some extra money (and they deserve it) and it doesn’t bother me since it doesn’t have a direct impact on my game (If you kill me you can taunt me however you like. But I’ll find you and I’ll kill you right back!). Charging for weapons and perks? That leaves a very bad tast...

But I’ll find you and I’ll kill you right back!). Charging for weapons and perks? That leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. I don’t like the idea that someone has access to more weapons simply because they have a more disposable income than I do, it benefits € over skill, and that’s bad when you’re playing online. Second, charging for maps is a simple and fast way to disrupt the community. It’s a shame that matchmaking will probably only be fixed when the community is already fragmented by different map packs. I expected better from Naughty Dog. (Of course, the game is still amazing and one of the best in recent times)

The PS3 version has the thing with map packs going on, no one, absolutely no one plays the maps from the first map pack, since map packs 1 and 2 are both seperate playlists, along with the in-game maps’ playlist. Map pack 2’s playlists has plenty of players, so does in-game’s, but last saturday I tried to play a game of survivors on the 1st map pack. Left my PS3 on for a while when I grabbed something to eat, nothing. After I’ve eaten, I read a book for a while. Didn’t notice the time pass, but 15 minutes had gone and still no match.
In the end I waited around 25 minutes and didn’t find a game. Even worse, it was on saturday evening when the game’s population should be at its peak.
So yeah, now I feel bad that I bought the damn season pass. First of all it doesn’t give you all the DLC, also what it does give I can’t use because there’s no players. Great job, ND!

11.2

Same, MP is amazing and makes me want to see ND expand it in the future but matchmaking reaaally needs sorting
right now i’m “idling” waiting for a match and typing here to pass the time till I get into one..
Shadow Fall has a low population but i get into its match like one/two seconds after pressing X…please fix your MP ND!

11.3

@jerlaak97 im sure it is your internet, I play all the time on all map packs and I don’t wait more than a few minutes for a match.

I can’t get excited about TLoU Factions any more. Firstly the lack of PS3-PS4 upgrade scheme for digital owners was a kick in the teeth – we already paid £60+ for the game & pass.

Worse still was the last game update – the new perks absolutely ruined multiplayer since Agility+Covert Ops means everyone is now an invisible one-hit-kill machine moving around at lightspeed.

I was hoping the matchmaking had been improved but it’s still pretty poor unfortunately. Bought season pass for PS3 and only thing I got use out of was Left Behind because of it, TLOU is great singleplayer but $230 is more than enough to have spent on one game so won’t be dipping for this new DLC, feel a bit stupid for having spent what I have already to be honest, there’s supporting a developer you enjoy, but then it gets to a point you begin to feel a bit off about it all.

I hope you re joking Naughty Dogs ? People already pay 50 Euro for your “remastered” (and supposedly complete game) which is not a fair price for an old game and you have to pay even more now ?

You have no shame ND.

14.1

Yer ND what are you holding us a gun point and forcing us to buy cosmetic dlc. O wait your not my bad.

14.2

Yes they are, Christophe Balestra is in my room holding a gun, dude I m scared you can’t understand.

facebook has so far blocked most of the videos i upload with games i play due to “copyright” … great system sony. Yes you can upload all your gameplay videos to facebook… except when you can’t

sigh. are you guys aware of the anality of facebook?

Paid map DLC is a waste, a massive waste.

Sesame Street has been brought to you by the word MATCHMAKING ISSUES. When ND started selling animal heads/masks for Uncharted 3, the writing was on the wall. Please dont get me wrong I’m an Uncharted/TLoU fan, however… A year and a console later, the matchmaking issues still exist. The PS3 matchmaking was worse imo, but for all who have finished Left Behind and the main story [on Grounded] that has ANY regard for Multiplayer will have a lot of frustration in waiting 1/2 an hour to play a Factions match. What I dearly hope ND willl consider is to feature/implement different PvP match types/Missions/Co-Op Modes, because after after all is said and done, we are left with a MULTIPLAYER game that has legs that will need “new shoes”…….NOT ANOTHER SET OF HATS, MASKS AND FRICKIN TAUNTS [inhales slowly and deeply and exhaling counting from 10 to 1] Amy Hennig et al’s departure from ND comes to mind and even if the two issues does not relate, I constantly ask “why” of the two.

There, I’ve said it. I’m actually nervous of U4’s impending release as that is the ‘jewel’ in ND’s ‘crown’ beloved by a huge fanbase….I digress but what WE are simply asking of you guys is to simply take care of the GAME and not the unnecessary ‘fluff’ that you want us to part with our hard earned money for, Thank you.

What the hell is this the value of the items is way less then the price you need to pay…
Naughty Dog is doing everything great except the microtransactions that ruined the experience for me on both Uncharted 3, The Last of Us and The Last of Us Remastered.

You’re lucky the single player is worth buying.
