Wednesday, 29th May 2013 02:44 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Naughty Dog has opened digital pre-orders and detailed a Season Pass deal for The Last of Us, outing plans for story DLC.

Naughty Dog has announced it has plans for three DLC packs at this stage: one is a single-player story pack, and the other two offer additional multiplayer content, including maps.

You can pre-order all three packs in a $20 Season pass, which represents a 30% saving on the price of the individual releases.

The Season Pass also includes a number of bonuses:

  • Increased Crafting Speed
  • Increased Healing Speed
  • 9mm Reload Speed Upgrade
  • Rifle Clip Capacity Upgrade
  • Grounded – exclusive 90min “Making of The Last of Us” documentary

The Season Pass will also be available via select retailers on launch day.

PlayStation Store pre-orders for the June 14 release opened today. Naughty Dog has promised more details regarding multiplayer in The Last of Us will be provided shortly.




    Story DLC? For a game of this magnitude?….Don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing….

    Depends on when the story takes place.
    If it’s a continuation or part of the main story (which I seriously doubt) then it’s not okay.
    If it’s something that has no correlation to the main story and exist solely to flesh out the world, I don’t see why that would be bad.

    Story DLC is great, as long as it’s not one of those “buy the ending separately” packs.

    I’m actually kinda happy that there’s single player DLC here, since I will never buy multiplayer DLC. That was one of my biggest complaints about the Uncharted franchise’s DLC. It was never anything that added to the story. I would have loved a pack where I learned more about, say, Chloe when Drake wasn’t around.

    I don’t care about fighting random strangers in death matches. So, that’s, at least, one pack I will be getting.

    story dlc can be great if it adds to the main story, if it develops an interesting backstory and makes the main game feel deeper without taking anything away from it.

    i don’t think i will be getting this game in june. somehow my personal hype for it faded. maybe that will change again though. i will definitely play it at some point but i never really was a huge uncharted fan either (not saying these are bad games, enjoyed them all, just not on my must play list). i love jak and dax so much more. why can’t we have a daxter survival horror game?

    totally into dark souls anyway atm, takes all of my time and more. the souls games are the best games this gen. period. then i plan to play sotc and ico again because they’ll be on plus (maybe i’ll save that for later). then i still have to finish persona 4 golden which i am only halfway through and ni no kuni which i only started, soul sacrifice, only started… dragons dogma too, wanna play dragons crown as well as soon as i can. that’s not the end of my backlog but just leave it there for a moment ok? OK?! when i will be done with all that eventually, we’ll probably have dark 2, diablo, destiny plus some new xones and ps4s to play with…i cannot handle this gaming beast anymore, seriously. how are you guys doing it. i don’t have enough time anymore!

    at least there’s a bit of a new game slowdown with the next gen coming, but no we’ll never get all the way caught up even then. hard times bro. hard times.

    but then, you cannot complain about having too many great games i guess.

    maybe a good idea for a youtube show. GrumpyB4cklogGam3r187.

    complaining about the great games i haven’t played yet and what i think of them anyway.

    It’s very very unlikely that this will affect the main campaign.

    Likely to be a stand alone short story. Rather intrigued by this :)

    No problemo, GOTY edition it is then…

    I’m personally hoping the story DLC will show another view of the story rather than focus on the main leads which plays along the main game.

    Sort of what Gears of War Judgment did.

    Yep, Sony fanboys are happy to pay for a few levels and a cutscene.

    It’s nothing like new multiplayer maps which take months to master.

    Sony fanboys. The retardation of retarded.

    @Da Man
    Multiplayer Maps takes months to master? takes me a few days IN FACT if i put my mind to it a few hours.

    #18 2 years ago

    Probably because you don’t play competitively.

    @Da Man
    Competitively or co-operatively, the former will take me a few weeks to master the skills everyone has skillfully learned, i guess you can say that it is an ongoing learning approach as people adapt new skills and locations and the latter takes me a few days or few hours.

    Competitive online to co-op is what Fifa is to blitzball in FFX..

    I presume if you play about 10 hours per day, then surely it will take less.

    Competitive multiplayer, needing more skills than single player is often peddled by those with a blinkered view on reality.

    The only real difference is that AI enemies rarely rage quit &/or send you abusive messages after you beat them ;-)

    Very funny. Very.

    About as much as passionate hardcore asserting that PS3 isn’t really a pain in the arse, but rather a different machine.

    @18 – Why are you giving him attention? My god, did you also talk to the strange man in the trenchcoat offering you candy? Ignore him and he’ll disappear into the ether.

    Yep, refrain from shattering the mental reality of insane children who think it’s all good.

    (On top of that they think they should ignore members registered 4 years beforehand, to make those feel unwelcomed). All that while flooding the board with the same mentally disturbing things you can read on any Sony website.

    Oh well, the hardcore.. Forever 12 years old, forever drunk.

    Is there something wrong with “giving him attention?” I’m not sure whats wrong.

    #27 2 years ago
  28. Da Man

    It’s simple. A Sony fanboy (we won’t be discussing their other personal characteristics atm, such as unemployment or insanity) asserts that single player videogames dlcs are for some obv reason of superior value to allegedly casual, soulless and unartistic online games.

    He then tries to paint anyone who mocks his 12 years old attitude as whatever..

    Simple as that.

    Thank god we have reality-check-man, we would be so lost without his useless douchebaggery.

    The Season Pass also includes a number of bonuses:

    - Increased Crafting Speed
    - Increased Healing Speed

    Surely some hardcore dlc there. Pay Sony, get invincible in their videogame.

    More lost than w/o some angry contributions which happen every year with the new wave of passionate hardcore.

    #30 2 years ago

    It would be interesting if instead of expanding the story forward by releasing DLC that takes place after the initial story, that they would expand it sideways(make it wider) by telling what happened to so and so while Joel and ellie were doing their thing…
