The Last of Us DLC bringing new difficulty, maps, gear and skills

New, 6 comments

The third and final pack of downloadable content for The Last of Us Season Pass holders will introduce a new difficulty mode, maps, gear and survival skills, Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli revealed today on the PlayStation Blog.

Each of the four separately priced packs will be free to those who've purchased the game's Season Pass.

The $4.99 Grounded Mode DLC will introduce Grounded Mode to the campaign, where the "AI is relentless, smart and brutal, and survival will be near impossible," Monacelli wrote.

The $9.99 Reclaimed Territories Map Pack will include four new maps: Wharf, which is set in the docks where Joel meets Robert; Capitol, set in Boston; Coal Mine, set in Colorado; and Water Tower, set in Lincoln, Pa.

The $5.99 Grounded Bundle will add new guns and skills, including a silenced assault rifle, a weapon that fires explosives like a potato gun, a double-barrel shotgun and more.

Two $3.99 Survival Skills bundles, Situational Survival Skills and Professional Survival Skills, unlock faster and quieter movement speed, automatic ammo pickups, bombs that explode faster and more.

All players will also receive the Full-Auto Rifle for free.
