The Last Of Us Remastered Gets Brutal New Add-Ons

The Last Of Us is one of the greatest single-player, narrative-driven games ever. Paradoxically enough, The Last Of Us also shipped with a multiplayer mode that translates the tense, violent combat of Joel’s adventure pretty faithfully.

A whole host of new Playstation 3 and 4 add-ons for The Last Of Us multiplayer mode were revealed at the Playstation Experience this past weekend. The folks over at the Playstation Blog were kind enough to put this trailer together showcasing what players have to look forward to:

Cheerful stuff, huh?

There are 9 new executions available for individual purchase at $0.99 each. These are unique takedown animations for the 9 weapon categories. Some of these animation sets will not be available on the Playstation 3 due to “memory constraints on the hardware.”

There’s also the Tactical Weapons Bundle, which includes a whole bunch of new weapons including a wicked-looking crossbow.

Players looking for new skills should consider picking up the Risk Management Survival Skills bundle for $3.99. This will get you five new skills, which you can purchase individually for $0.99 each.

For the fashion-minded apocalypse survivors, there’s the Misfit Head Item Bundle that comes with 8 pieces of headwear and the bundle-exclusive Plague Mask. Any other item can be purchased separately for “various prices.”

Finally, there are two new gesture bundles for all you extroverts out there. Each bundle contains 4 gestures each, perfect for expressing yourself with your friends before you kill them. Gesture Pack 2 and 3 are on sale for $2.49 each, or you can choose your favorites for $0.99 each.

    Wow, it’s as if The Last of Us was lacking in the brutal department. And that folks would pay money to make it more so. No thanks, Naughty Dog. I’ll spend those dollars on Uncharted 4.

      Yeah, I could never get behind these types of microtransactions. I’d rather save my money for a different game!
