Naughty Dog says The Last of Us DLC Announcement is here and will be revealed in August.
Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann & game director Bruce Straley did Reddit AMA to answer questions regarding The Last of Us and the future.
Fans asked the team about the first upcoming single player DLC, ending and the next game.
When asked about the DLC for The Last Of Us, Neil Druckmann replied:
“News is on the way about the first DLC drop. Should hear about it this month.”
Probably the announcement will be at PAX in August.
Also asked whether there will be more story content from the universe that Ellie and Joel live in centering around the two characters, to that he said:
“It’s possible. We’re playing with some ideas, but no direction has been set yet for the next game.”
In the end, Ben Atkins asks a question which is on everyone’s mind, He
asked … “Was the ending of The Last Of Us controversial?”, to that Druckmann replied:
“Initially, yeah [it was controversial]. [The] ending we ultimately went with didn’t sit well with some members of the team. Once it was more fleshed out, it became an easier sell.
We went through about 3 or 4 ideas before finding the ending that worked best for the story we wanted to tell.”
Naughty Dog will release three DLC packs for game, including two multiplayer pack and one single player.

So, it’s way passed the end of the world… At least according to the Mayan calendar… And we are still here! But the upcoming releases of games such as Tomb Raider and The Last Of Us in 2013, raises a good question… What kind of survivor are YOU?!
Even recently with the release of The Walking Dead on XBLA and PSN, the games have been gearing toward the question of, ‘what kind of survivor are you?’ You get to choose different actions in The Walking Dead which alter the outcome of the game. Do you save the man or the woman? Do you save the child or yourself?
Tomb Raider promises to be one hell of a ride through the beloved Lara Croft character… It takes place before she becomes the rough & tumble woman of our virtual dreams and tells the story of why she became one bad ass woman! Are YOU that kind of survivor? One who keeps on going no matter what? One that will do ANYTHING to survive?
Game developer Naughty Dog is coming out with The Last Of Us, a game about surviving what seems to be a post apocalyptic earth, however the main character is taking care of a young girl, would you be so kind as to care for another during such a time? Other humans pillaging and stealing and doing what they need to for survival… Or would you be the one to take on the ‘kill or be killed’ motto and let it be every man for him or herself??
Either way, I’m just glad the world didn’t end and I can answer these questions about myself through the wonderful world of video games… But please, tell the CWG Team what kind of survivor are YOU?!
Images show that the game will utilize a colourful pallet, which GI points out is in contrast to your typical bleak post-apocalyptic world. It also confirms Pittsburgh as a location in the game.
Finally, it reveals that gameplay will split between gunplay and melee combat, with players forced to scavenge for weapons as melee object break after repeated use.
