If you've been waiting to expand upon the amazing experience that is The Last Of Us , your wait is almost over.
Naughty Dog has revealed the first batch of downloadable content; it's called the Abandoned Territories Map Pack and it will be ready to go on October 15. This is included if you purchased the $20 Season Pass; not sure what it will retail for separately, but you can probably guess.
The Pack will include four new multiplayer maps: Suburbs, Bus Depot, Hometown and Bookstore. This is pretty standard stuff but perhaps even more interesting is the developer's update on their single-player DLC: They say they've just completed "a long casting process" for a new character, and performance capture will begin next week. This untitled bit of content is currently scheduled to release in either December or January; we're hoping sooner rather than later. As for the third piece of DLC, that will be multiplayer-oriented and is slated for the first half of 2014.
Lastly, bonus items were added to the Season Pass today. There are no fewer than 60 different heads for multiplayer characters, ranging from a Pigskin Hat to a Nightmare Mask. Try 'em on.
