Details For “The Last Of Us” DLC: “Grounded”

April 22, 20140 Comments

Before The Last of Us is remastered on the PS4, we still have some DLC to expect for the PS3.

The final DLC titled “Grounded” offers four new maps, plus new guns and survival skills. In addition, you will also be getting a fully automatic weapon for use in multiplayer. Nice.

The bundle is only for those with a season pass. If you want to buy the pieces of the bundle separately, you can do that too. Prices are detailed with each component explained below.

For those still playing The Last of Us’ campaign, Grounded Mode is for you. It’s an all-new difficulty setting. “The AI is relentless, smart, and brutal, and survival will be near impossible. ‘Completed Grounded Mode’ might be one of the most difficult Trophies you’ll ever earn,” writes Naughty Dog’s Eric Monacelli. Grounded Mode costs $4.99.

Next up are four new maps for The Last of Us’ multiplayer, collectively called Reclaimed Territories. The four maps are called Wharf, Capitol, Coal Mine, and Water Tower. The Wharf is “where Joel encountered Robert” in the campaign. Capitol is “set in Boston,” while the Coal Mine is “set in Colorado.” And finally, the Water Tower is located in Lincoln, Pennsylvania, and is “perfect for close quarters melee.” Purchased separately, the maps will cost $9.99.

The Specter is a silenced assault rifle “that’s great if your style is stealth stalker.” The Double Barrel is a “classic, deadly, double-barrel shotgun.” The Enforcer is a “highly accurate pistol,” while the Launcher is “a weapon that fires small explosives.” Buy them bundled together in the Survivalist Weapon Bundle for $5.99.

Finally, there’s two survival skill bundles. The first bundle, Situational Survival Skills, can be purchased for $3.99. It includes Agility (“climb, vault, and move while crouching faster than you could before”), Awareness (“see enemy nametags before they see yours”), Fortitude (“you’ll take longer to bleed out, crawl faster, and have more health when downed”), and Scavenger (“automatically pick up ammo and supplies”).

The second bundle is called the Professional Survival Skills bundle, and can also be purchased for $3.99. This bundle includes Gunslinger (“spawn with more pistol ammo”), Bomb Expert (“your bombs will explode more quickly”), Executioner (“earn more parts for shiv kills and special executions”), and Damage Marker (“automatically mark any enemies you hit”).

In addition, every player of The Last of Us – season pass holders or otherwise – will receive a brand-new weapon free of charge, called the Full-Auto Rifle. Naughty Dog has yet to reveal the release date of this gun — or any of the aforementioned DLC — but that will change soon.

“Grounded” won’t be available for another few weeks, but you can get a preview when Naughty Dog does its first ever Livestream on Thursday, April 24th at 12:00 pm on The Naughty Dog Channel.

It should be noted that the previous and upcoming DLC will be a part of the PS4 release.
