A preview is set for this week...
The final DLC for The Last Of Us is expected to arrive within the next few weeks. The official Playstation blog reports that the last DLC pack, "Grounded," will offer four new maps as well new guns, survival skills and a fully automatic weapon that can be used in multiplayer.
The new content is as follows:
Maps Wharf: Set in the rusted-out docks where Joel encountered Robert, the Wharf map features close quarters gameplay, two snipers nests, and a giant boat. It's full of good opportunities for climbing, flanking, and stealth. Capitol: Set in Boston, the Capitol Map features indoor and outdoor gameplay. It encourages the intelligent use of flanking. Coal Mine: Set in Colorado, Coal Mine is a winter map that's spotted with abandoned buildings. It's a spacious map that has long lines of sight and a bridge that's a perfect perch for snipers. The dynamic snowstorm obscures the view so be on your toes. Water Tower: Set in Lincoln, PA, the Water Tower map features two primary chokepoints for some deadly face-to-face confrontations. It's mainly an outdoor map with a few indoor areas and some very unique lighting. It might seem open, but it's really a tight map that's perfect for close quarters melee.
Weapons Survivalist Weapon Bundle: Need more firepower? This is your bundle. The Survivalist Weapon bundle includes the Specter, Double Barrel, Enforcer, and Launcher. Specter: A silenced assault rifle that's great if your style is stealth stalker. PSN purchase unlocks this gun for use in your Custom Loadout. Equip in the Purchasable loadout slot, then use in-game parts to buy it during the match. Double Barrel: Classic, deadly, double-barrel shotgun. Only 1 loadout point. PSN purchase unlocks this gun for use in your Custom Loadout. Equip in the Purchasable loadout slot, then use in-game parts to buy it during the match. Enforcer: Highly accurate pistol but will cost you an extra loadout point. Launcher: A weapon that fires small explosives, in the vein of a home-made potato gun. PSN purchase unlocks this gun for use in your Custom Loadout. Equip in the Purchasable loadout slot, then use in-game parts to buy it during the match.
Skills Situational Survival Skills Bundle: Unlock four survival skills that will help you get the best of any situation. This bundle includes Agility, Awareness, Fortitude, and Scavenger. Agility: Climb, vault, and move while crouching faster than you could before. At level 3 you are nearly impossible to hear while moving. Awareness: See enemy nametags before they see yours and enemy nametags remain on screen for several seconds when taking fire. Fortitude: Downed? Level up this skill and it will help you survive longer as you'll take longer to bleed out, crawl faster, and have more health when downed. At higher levels you'll start with an extra health pack, and earn extra parts each time you heal. Scavenger: Automatically pick up ammo and supplies and see increases in drops from enemies with this valuable skill. At level 3 enemies sometimes drop a random crafting ingredient. Professional Survival Skills Bundle: Unlock four survival skills that will make you even more deadly. This bundle includes Gunslinger, Bomb Expert, Executioner, and Damage Marker. Gunslinger: Equip this skill to start each spawn with more pistol ammo as you level up the skill. Bomb Expert: Your bombs will explode more quickly and you'll be immune to the stun of your own smoke bomb as you level up this skill. Executioner: If your play style is the higher the risk, the greater the reward, then this is the skill you want. Earn more parts for shiv kills and special executions, and get extra shiv uses every time you craft a shiv. Damage Marker: Good at hitting your targets? This is the skill for you as you'll automatically mark any enemies you hit and earn double the parts for making.
No release date has been set, but Naughty Dog will do a LiveStream on April 24th at 12:00 PM PT. If you're not a season pass holder, Grounded Mode will cost $4.99 standalone.
