New The Last of Us update improves matchmaking, adds two new maps

Plus, new weapons also available now on PlayStation Store

Happy Thursday! We’re pushing a patch today that addresses many of the matchmaking issues taking place in Factions mode for The Last of Us Remastered. You should see improved matchmaking all around. It will be rolling out over the next 24 hours globally. Look for the update when you turn on your system today.

With that patch, as promised, we’re giving away two, brand new multiplayer maps for FREE. The first map is the Beach, an excellent map for long-range experts. The second map is Financial Plaza, which is ideal for both sniping and close quarters combat. The maps will be free for both PS3 and PS4 players. Check out these maps in our latest trailer:

Once we’ve deployed the maps, upon signing into Factions multiplayer, the store will pop up and you’ll be asked to download them for free.

If you’re super excited and want to see how quickly you can get back to playing Factions, the Maps for PS4 are roughly 291MB and the patch is about 137MB. For PS3, patch 1.09 will be approximately 170MB and the same maps are about 143MB.

Also newly available is our Scoped Weapons Bundle which can be purchased on the PlayStation Store for €2.99/£2.49 right now. And the four new weapons in the bundle are sold individually if you’re more selective about your guns. All weapons are available for The Last of Us on BOTH the PS3 and PS4.

The Last of Us Remastered: Treacherous Territories

Enjoy the free maps and get geared up with some new weapons and any of our many other The Last of Us Add-Ons such as the Ultimate Head Item Pack – which includes every head item we’ve made to date! Be sure to give us your feedback about the patch and new Add-Ons. Thank you for all the information you’ve given us so far. See you online!

Thanks for the new maps. But the new weapons can these be unlocked via in game or do you have to buy them if you want them?

I would like to know this too. I hate microtransactions and think naughty dog should just include these types of items in the season pass.

1.2

They can’t be unlocked, though you can use them for free using the pre-set load outs in Factions. They gave us free maps, so they need to sell some DLC to recoup the costs.

1.3

I am thankful for the free maps but weopns that cost -_- I hate this crap ruins the balance of a game. If you want to go that route you charge for aestetic non–gameplay things not stuff like guns :/

NICE

Great stuff, but I want them to fix “Suburbs” chapter very much. It’s quite impossible to pass through insane zombies running around for no reason on the highest difficulty with just 3 bullets in the pockets.

3.1

Go big or go home!

Соберись тряпка:)

This multiplayer is a joke. And I freaking regret wasting my money on this season pass.

How’s the multiplayer a joke? It’s awesome, hence why it has such a big community of active players around the world. If it sucked it’d be like the Tomb Raider multiplayer where you bump into the same 3 or 4 people over and over again… btw all the people I play with including myself were considering quitting on it in the beginning but now they’re so happy they stuck with it

Just because it’s not a stupid run n gun gameplay,doesn’t mean it’s sucks,try to see difference,it’s not cod.when you realize this,you gonna love this uncommon multiplayer,because stabbing someone from the back is just so satisfying:)

Does we get new trophys for this maps?

Nevermind now, finally beat it. The hardest place I ever was passing through in the game so far. The hardest difficulty is hard for real, worth all the nerves though, satisfaction is great, just like right now. I even didn’t know this game has an interface (I just saw it on some guy’s video). Anyways, I said it’s impossible because I’ve been trying to beat it for four days now. Phew.

Well, while I’m writing things… I must say I quite disappointed on chapters quality give up, but don’t get me wrong though! Level design is super-great everywhere, but some details like swinging doors, objects with physics and etc. small things which are cool in the first half of the game — really give up after prologue and some next few chapters. Welp, thankfully that’s tiny thing to whine about, right? Great game so far and it’s nice to see they’re still updating it.

Yay!! More PAY-TO-WIN microtransactions!! Lost tons of respect for you naughty dog.

How is it pay to win? You don’t need the extra guns, it’s nothing really. Just an extra something if people do want to pay.

New maps: very nice!

Personally, I think DLC weapons are a bad idea: this is turning TLoU MP into a pay-to-win game. And that is especially egregious when the base game itself is not free.

I was hoping they would finally fix the glitch with the “I want to talk about it” trophy… but I guess they didn’t…. still waiting for it

9.1

Never going to happen. I fell foul of several glitched trophies & tags on several playthroughs, the only solution was to delete all my saves and acquire every collectible, conversation and joke in a single playthrough. Using chapter select or NG+ broke something every time.

So anyone know when we will get the update and the dlc for the uk then?

10.1

Update for the ps4 was about an hour ago 145mb so not sure when we’ll get the maps.

10.2

and I just tried to connect to factions MP and it says to play I have to download the mappack and it connects you to the D/L !! Nice :D

11

Basically broke online with this, party keeps getting booted and havent even seen new maps

12

Complete joke this is…..

Naughty Dogs should also add clan tags
for Friends/party it would be great for people to play hard and not slack off

18

When I choose Faction, a pop-up showed asking me if I want (must) download some new maps to play online, then I saw “Treacherous Territories” map pack, I hit DOWNLOAD button but another pop-up showed and tell me me that “The funds could not be added to your wallet” ???
We know the maps are FREE then why I couldn’t download them? Or is this another PS Store bug? This mean no Multiplayer anymore???

just got home from work and im also having the same problem. it says item cant be selected. I just followed the instructions to click ok to dl free maps after selecting mp factions. am I doing It wrong? please help. thank you

19.1

It seems your PSN account isn’t the same region with your disc (ex: US PSN account playing EU disc)?
Correct me if I was wrong.

20

HELP!
I’ve been trying to get into TLoU MP the whole evening yesterday and also many times today (8/30) – and got the same damn error e-8200121 aka “cannot add funds to your wallet”.
Everything worked fine on Thursday, but I restarted router and did a bunch of tricks anyway, to no avail! Sad and frustrated…

Sony, get your network in order, it’s a service people pay for, after all!!!

20.1

My friend has the same issue too!

20.2

the same freaking issue here as well.!

20.3

Same here, it’s such a mess with playstation, so disappointed, and it’s not the first time having some issue…

Before I give comment, some positives. First, I loved this game from PS3 til now. The very genre of what I call Survival Horror portrayed in a somewhat balanced way across story and multiplayer mode ticked all the boxes for me. Last thursday is when my admiration stopped.

I knew in the back of my mind that the Treacherous Territories Maps “gesture” was a red herring to begin with. Matchmaking issues or not, my season pass should have warranted the free maps anyway, there was no indication that the season pass has expired to my knowledge even across both consoles of which I own both versions.

I said in a comment to a previous TLoU DLC package blog from yourself that I was nervous about the forthcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End release and what in-game shenanigans would arise from it, Well if this and Uncharted 3 are anything to go by, the jingle jangle of our collective loose change will sound no more.

Please don’t get me wrong, cosmetic microtransactions I can bear but ND engagi...

Please don’t get me wrong, cosmetic microtransactions I can bear but ND engaging in “pay to win” upgrades is something else. I never thought it would cross ND’s minds to bring that practice to their devoted, loyal and beloved fans. The fact that these “scopes” are available for free in pre-loadouts holds no water and no balance in ND’s agenda and in all honesty the multiplayer is f***ed for doing so as some our collective hands are being forced in our wallets to simply be on an equal footing from the start.

I guess the “parts” that we scavenge for in game, aint worth s**t now. MORE FREE MODES NOT PAID MODS please….’preciate it

Please sony europe fix this problem we want to play tlou online because when i press download to download the free 2 maps it says the funds couldn not be added to your walet please look for this problem and fix it

I Cannot download the mapsalso every time I try to download this appears ”This content cannot be selected at this time” i cannot play factions any more

27

Ridiculous how they obviously know that these problems exist but have so far remained silent on it. At least tell us that you’re acknowledging the problem.

downloaded the maps via USA PSN but still wont let me log in…please fix this!

Awesome game!

Now to another point, its sort of frustrating that the official forum is not read by Sony and as far as i know there is no better way reaching them then commenting here. Sometimes i do see you guys take points and bring it back to the main office and the problem i’m going to mention is becoming very frustrating. The issue i’m talking about is “swap memory cards without messing up everything”. It is 2014 and this simple problem still exist on the Vita. I see forum threads year long without any resolution:
http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Vita-Support/How-do-you-swap-memory-cards-without-messing-up-everything/td-p/38485689
Please could you raise this issue to the people who can do something about this problem? these days with the 32/64GB cards this becomes a big problem. I personally have 2 x 32GB and one 64GB and could not believe that all my folders were gone when i changed between them. This is really a simple issue to fix. Simple save a small file ...

Simple save a small file on the memory card with the structure and read it back when swaping the card. I even turn off the Vita before swaping the memory.
I really appreciate it if you guys could help forwarding this problem to the headquarter/developers. Thanks you!

I’ve got a comment, why after only one week am I now unable to play ” the last of us” as it constantly crashes?
Why is there no one I can email or text a complaint to. And why does such a big company as Sony make it so difficult for its customers to get in touch with them. £40 for a game that I can’t play …thanks a lot !

Can’t download the update..keeps saying content not available at this time -_- and I can’t even play without the update -_-

Boring waiting (~3day already) to fix this:
I installed the new patch & mappack, but the Factions multiplayer always says: ” To connect to Factions you must download some FREE map content”
I hit the ‘OK’ button, and i see that is already installed… but the game trolling me.

Reinstall the game not fix the problem.

C’mon Naugthy Dog..

i have same problem bro… please say something naughty dogggg
there is nothing from you on these complaints.

i seee message that This Service is Undergoing maintinance

I still cant download it still says “This Service is Undergoing Process” [deleted] .. Cmon fix it Please i m starved of gamming

33.1

indian gamer?

plz fix psn sony cannot do anything

34.1

i have the same issue here, when i try to download the free map it says:- the service is under maintenance

Enough with the micro transactions, I’ve bought your game twice and a season pass at over inflated regional prices and it’s just silly (and quite poor form) now.

I have huge problems with the Scoped weapon bundle + New FREE maps.

1: I purchased scoped weapon bundle and installed but when I try to customise my loadout these weapons remain ‘locked’. I could only use the new scoped weapons by selecting the default loadouts.

2: When I try to install the FREE maps it prompts: this content cannot be selected at this time.

I bought both my PS4 and The last of us remastered in Singapore, my PSN is in Singapore and I live in Singapore.

How can I fix this?

Thanks!
Jason

PSN was being hacked again???
*for the people who were compaining about “This content cannot be selected at this time”: Make sure your disc is the same region with your PSN account. Ex: US disc needs an US account to download the maps, this happens the same as my Killzone disc.
If it works, then the final boss is: “The funds couldn’t be added to your wallet” aka.

Guys! I have a SOLUTION!!!!!!!!! For this u need two accounts

When you are in your current account(the account in which u play) go to settings and deactivate as primary PS4. Then log out and make a new account using new user. Make sure the new account is same as the game region.Once done, log in and go to settings and make that as your primary ps4.Once done, log in on the new account and go to tlourm and then factions. You will see that the download will proceed without any problem.Once its finished go back to ur current account and play the game . Make sure u don’t deactivate your current account.

I hope you like this action montage made in two days with sharefactory!
