Sony has revealed information about the Season Pass of the much-awaited survival-action game The Last of Us. According to a blog post on the PlayStation Blog, the Season Pass for The Last of Us will be available for pre-order from tomorrow. Buying the season pass will cost €19.99 and will consist of three DLCs.
For the first time, studio Naughty Dog will be making story-based DLC instead of its usual skins and maps for multiplayer. “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,” says the blog post.
Those who pre-order the Season Pass will get some bonuses for the game on day one. This includes increased crafting speed, increased healing speed, 9mm reload speed upgrade, rifle clip capacity upgrade and Grounded.
The Last of Us will be the first Naughty Dog game to get story DLC
Grounded is an exclusive 90-minute documentary on the making of The Last of Us. It is an in-depth look and has been made by a group that is specialised in making videos about games – Area 5.
The other DLC packs will feature multiplayer content in the form of maps, and like Uncharted, skins. The company will reveal more about the game's multiplayer component in the coming days. According to the blog post, the multiplayer component of the game will carry forward the same themes, tone and tension that is present in the single player campaign.
The Last of Us will be hitting store shelves on June 14, and will be available digitally on the PlayStation Store on day one. It will feature a unique download installer which will let you start playing the game as soon as the download is a little more than half-way complete.
