The Last of Us will be available on PSN day and date as the retail version on June 14th, and is now available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store, as well as previously announced outlets. The game’s Season Pass has also been detailed, offering a 30 percent discount for those who opt to purchase the full thing, as compared to buying DLC piece-by-piece. Details below.
The game’s Season Pass includes three DLC map packs and costs $19.99. You’ll be able to obtain your Season Pass at GameStop as well when you pick up your copy of the game. Also, those who purchase the Season Pass will receive these bonuses:
• Increased Crafting Speed
• Increased Healing Speed
• 9mm Reload Speed Upgrade
• Rifle Clip Capacity Upgrade
• Grounded – exclusive 90min “Making of The Last of Us” documentary
Naughty Dog says, “these Day 1 bonuses will help you get a head start and an edge in Joel and Ellie’s struggle to survive through the single player campaign of The Last of Us. The documentary, Grounded, is an in-depth look at the making of The Last of Us throughout its development by Area 5.”
The studio will also be offering The Last of Us single-player DLC, something that’s never been done before in a Naughty Dog game, and they can’t wait to share more details.
For the first time ever we’ll be offering single player DLC. The journey and cast of characters in The Last of Us lends itself to thorough narrative exploration and we’ve got more of the story to tell. The two other DLC packs will feature multiplayer content in the form of additional multiplayer maps and other expansions. You’ll be hearing about our multiplayer over the next couple of days. It’s an experience that continues the themes, tone and tension from the single player campaign and we can’t wait to tell you more about it.
The PS3 exclusive goes on sale June 14th, one day after E3.
