Not Much of an Outbreak: The Last of Us DLC Detailed

The Last of Us outbreak is coming, just not for another few months.

After delighting fans with an “alternate” ending to Joel and Ellie’s post-apocalyptic murder-spree yesterday, Naughty Dog teased a big #Outbreak announcement where its plans for The Last of Us DLC would be outlined. Given the name used in the tease, I was expecting the promised new single-player campaign content would be revealed. Like many of you, I also assumed we’d get details on that new content.

Not so much.

In a post on PlayStation Blog, Naughty Dog offered little information and said we won’t get the single-player adventure until December at the earliest, possibly January 2014.

“This is an ambitious story with strong ties into the narrative of The Last of Us,” Naughty Dog’s Eric Monacelli states. “We just wrapped up a long casting process for a new character, and we’re starting our performance capture shoot next week. The single-player DLC is currently planned for release around the December-January time frame.”

That’s all Naughty Dog is willing to share for now on the new single-player content. The studio did open up a bit more about the additional multiplayer stuff it has in the works, though. On October 15, the Abandoned Territories Map Pack will launch, bringing four new levels for Factions to do battle. Following the single-player DLC in December/January, more multiplayer content is planned for the first half of 2014. No details on that third pack just yet.

We’ll keep you posted.

If there is one thing about marketing that bothers me almost as much as showing off the best parts of a game to generate hype, it is hyping up marketing. An announcement that there will be a later announcement is NOT interesting, contrary to what companies would have you believe on social media.
