The first of three planned downloadable content releases for The Last of Us season pass holders is the ‘Abandoned Territories’ map pack, Naughty Dog has revealed.
The add-on, due out on October 15, offers the following four maps:
- Suburbs – weather the opposing Faction and the random, dynamic dust storm.
- Bus Depot – explore a layered map of an overgrown urban environment with wild giraffes in the background.
- Hometown – talk around in a dark, eerie, moonlit, environment – the perfect setting for some serious stealth.
- Bookstore – features a stacked, bi-level layout adding a highly unique dose of vertical gameplay.
Story-driven downloadable content is also on the way, and is due out sometime between December and January.
“This is an ambitious story with strong ties into the narrative of The Last of Us,” Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli said on the PlayStation Blog. “We just wrapped up a long casting process for a new character, and we’re starting our performance capture shoot next week.”
The final piece of season pass content is multiplayer focused and will arrive in the first half of 2014.
Naughty Dog is also ading a few bonus items to the season pass. Over 60 different head gear for your multiplayer character, including a Nightmare Mask and Pigskin Hat, will be free to all season pass buyers.
