There's an Abandoned Territories multiplayer map pack dropping for Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic masterpiece on October 15, but that's not important right now. What is important, is new story-driven, single-player content coming to The Last of Us in December or January.
I'm sure multiplayer fans will be pleased with the four new maps in the Abandoned Territories pack. Suburbs, Hometown, Bus Depot and Boostore sound like lovely places to do whatever it is they do. Shoot each other? I guess so.
Multiplayer obviously does not excite me. What does is news that casting has been completed on a new character, performance capture is underway, and if all goes well we could have a new story with strong ties to the original narrative in our hands before the year is out. Maybe there'll be singing!
And after that there'll be another multiplayer-focused drop. Yay.
Season pass holders will get all three DLC drops for free, technically, while non-season pass holders interested in the triple play still have time to rectify their status.
