Wednesday, 16th April 2014 16:21 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The Last of Us will receive its third and final DLC drop called the Grounded Bundle, which comes with six trophies and mixes single-player and multiplayer content.


It also comes with “the hardest challenge you’ll ever face” as you try to complete the single-player campaign against “relentless, smart and brutal AI.”

The pack contains the Reclaimed Territories Map which comes with four maps: Wharf, Capitol, Coal Mine, and Water Tower.

New guns and new survival skills will be part of the Grounded Bundle and all new guns and skills will be available “to try before you buy” as part of new pre-set load outs. The Survivalist Weapon Bundle contains four new weapons: Specter, Double Barrel, Enforcer, and Launcher.

Two Survival Skills Bundles, Situational Survival Skills and Professional Survival Skills are included as well if you own the season pass.

The Situational Survival Skills Bundle unlocks four survival skills: Agility, Awareness, Fortitude, and Scavenger while the Professional Survival Skills Bundle includes the abilities: Gunslinger, Bomb Expert, Executioner, and Damage Marker.

Even non-season pass holders will acquire a new gun – the Full-Auto Rifle – for free. It’s a fully-automatic, “modified burst rifle”.

The Grounded Bundle is part of the season pass which will be available for four more weeks until May 13.

You can get an early look at the DLC in action this Friday, April 18 through the Naughty Dog Twitch channel at 8pm BST/3pm EDT.

    There are rumors that the ai was dumbed down before release because game journalists found it hard to complete preview levels. So it is possible they are bringing it back as dlc for the hardcore crowd so I am not sure why the two of you are finding it funny without even considering giving it a chance while I agree the ai is mostly dumb currently in the game

    Well the game sold millions already and won awards so this is a kinda cool update that should appease the 10 to 20% who complained about the game. Improved AI helps the replay value. Even though the original AI was too stupid for some, the fact your abilities and what you can salvage is drastically different changed on higher difficulties makes it a different game on hard more. Most games just increase damage and give enemies the ability to do headshots.

    @marporte +1
    the AI surely is kind of stupid like in most games anyway,but most survival elements change according to the difficulty which makes it a different experience

    Keeping in mind that this is from Kotaku, it’s a very interesting read.

    Long story short, when gamers were experimented with really smart AI, they said the game was cheating. Only when the game was dumbed down, did people start enjoying it as a game.

    Imagine if every single enemy in Dark Souls were human controlled. Mother of god.
