Third and final Last of Us DLC adds new singleplayer mode and multiplayer maps

Written by: / / No Comments

We’re living in a very different world these days vis-à-vis The Last of Us.

Not only do we have the excellent Left Behind singleplayer downloadable content to enjoy, a higher definition and more feature-rich PlayStation 4 version of the game has also been announced with a debut trailer to showcase what to except later this year.

To round out the recent revelations for Naughty Dog’s latest epic, the third and final Last of Us DLC has been further detailed with screenshots.


Called the ‘Grounded Bundle,’ the final Last of Us DLC adds a new singleplayer mode called ‘Grounded,’ which Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli says “will be the hardest challenge you’ll ever face” as you attempt to complete the singleplayer campaign of the game.

“The AI is relentless, smart and brutal – survival will be near impossible. ‘Completed Grounded Mode’ might be one of the most difficult trophies you’ll ever earn,” Monacelli continued on the PlayStation Blog.

The Reclaimed Territories map pack included as part of the Grounded Bundle, meanwhile, adds four new multiplayer maps and six new Trophies, all set in locations that will be “familiar yet unfamiliar” to Last of Us players. “Intelligent use of climbing, stealth, flanking, and all your clan survival techniques will be essential to master these maps.”

Here’s a rundown of the maps:


“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.”


“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 is 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.”

A new weapon (free to all DLC owners) will become available in the form of the Full-Auto Rifle, “a fully automatic, modified burst rifle that is very easy to use. It’s the perfect weapon for people who are new to Factions and experts alike.”

Other new guns and skills will also be added to Last of Us multiplayer with the Grounded Bundle – get the full details on these additions over here.
