shared a Neil Druckmann
PBS interview video today for The Last of Us below.
To quote: Our first-ever single player DLC, The Last of Us: Left Behind
, was unveiled last week in New York during the PS4 launch event. If you haven't seen the teaser, check it out now. There are some cool hints as to what kind of gameplay you'll be seeing in the video.
The Last of Us: Left Behind is one element of our $19.99 Season Pass. We wanted the Season Pass to be all-inclusive and a great value. The first piece of DLC for the Season Pass was our Abandoned Territories Map Pack. The Abandoned Territories Map Pack
released in October and it's a blast, with four brand new maps for the Factions multiplayer in The Last of Us.
In addition to our behind-the-scenes documentary, Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us, we added over 60 multiplayer head items to the Season Pass. The Country Flag Hats
and Nightmare Bundle
are out now.
We're making the next three bundles special for Season Pass holders by making them available starting as soon the PlayStation Store updates in your region. Here's a look at what's coming your way:
• Government Issue Bundle - Available immediately for Season Pass holders, releasing November 19 on the PlayStation Store for $8.99 (individual head items prices vary).
• Rally Bundle - Available immediately for Season Pass holders, releasing December 3 on the PlayStation Store for $8.99 (individual head items prices vary).
• Bygones Bundle - Available immediately for Season Pass holders, releasing December 17 on the PlayStation Store for $8.99 (individual head items prices vary).
That's some serious early access and you'll have the coolest multiplayer character out there if you pick up the Season Pass now. If you don't get the Season Pass you'll have to buy the separate bundles to get every multiplayer head item.
Each bundle has its own exclusive head item. The Nightmare Mask, Battle Mask, Flame Motorcycle Helmet, and the Rooster Hat are only wearable if you buy the bundle associated with it or purchase the Season Pass.
When you do the math, the Season Pass is a tremendous value with savings of 75% over purchasing all the content individually. So it's the best way to get all of The Last of Us content without crushing your wallet. Not only do you get immediate access to all the head items but you'll be getting awesome multiplayer content and what we promise will be one of the most compelling pieces of single player DLC ever made.
A few weeks ago The Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann
visited local LA TV station KLCS and filmed Between the Lines
with Barry Kibrick.
Barry wanted to dive deeper into the philosophy behind The Last of Us and what makes the game the universally acclaimed hit it is. The full episode is now available online. It's a great interview with some questions and answers you wouldn't typically hear. Watch it now:
Look for more news and information about The Last of Us: Left Behind and all multiplayer DLC content that will be available via the Season Pass in the near future.
