Naughty Dog on The Last of Us DLC: “We Aren’t Sure What it is Yet” but are “Already Planning”

Trying to figure out just what we can expect to see from the DLC Naughty Dog is making for The Last of Us seems to be a fools errand at this point, with only minimal clues involving that it’ll be a “side story”. - PSLS (PS3, The Last Of Us)

But they sold the season pass already!
dbjj12088  +   294d ago
Yeah this news kind of pisses me off. Like the BIoshock Infinite season pass. Where the hell is my DLC now?
supraking951  +   294d ago
wow the game just released not long ago, already screaming for more? if this was EA and they released dlc within a week or two you would cry wolf
MikeyDucati1  +   294d ago
That is part of the risk of buying season pass. This is nothing new.
plaZeHD  +   294d ago
The game just came out what three weeks ago. Wait until like 2-4 months from now.
matrixman92  +   294d ago
yeah...Bioshocks is kind of ridiculous at this point. They need to give us at least some info, other than that they are working on it

@ Supraking951

I am getting real sick of people acting like everyone is a hypocrite because opposite opinions exist.

Some people like instant gratification, others rather wait and savor the game and then the first pack and then the second pack and so forth.
Some people want campaign content, where as others (most likely) would love to see the multiplayer expanded upon.
Just like there were people that supported the Xbox One DRM (if you preordered it prior to it being removed, I consider that supporting it. Though there were people that didn't mind the concepts and thought others were complaining too much), Online Passes, Day 1 DLC and just about everything else people consider "bad".

Seriously, unless it's the same person doing this stuff, then no one is being a hypocrite. They're just different opinions...

this season pass is more like a kickstarter lol.
CalvinKlein  +   294d ago
i didnt buy the season pass because I want to see what it is before buying it, but im really looking forward to whatever it is becasue I love tha game. by the time I hear about it ill be mroe than ready for more LoU.
CrimsonStar  +   294d ago
Yea i will never buy a season pass again too risky , yea thats right borderland 2 I'm talking about you !!!!

See this is the sort of "paradox" with DLC

- If it comes out straight away we wonder why it wasn't part of the game, most of the time we learn it has been cut. We complain


- If it comes out ages after release you end up saying "hurry up" and sometimes most people move onto other games or don't care about the DLC anymore. Again people complain because we end up waiting too long

It seems developers in general can never get the balance just right. I mean this falls into the latter and it's worrying since they aren't sure what is what yet since knowing ND it will take a little while to create with how perfect they like things.

You could almost say it's a... Quantum Conundrum.
MikeyDucati1  +   294d ago
Lol is it the developers that should balance that? Or is it really on the shoulders of gamers for not understanding? Ah...questions...
badz149  +   294d ago
if a game is terribly lacking
and short to boot...and then BAAM day-1 DLC, of course people will question the practice but I don't think TLoU falls under that category! the game has good length to it and doesn't feel gimped at all! fans just want more of it because it's THAT good! I hope the DLC will be something like DLC for GTAIV. one can hope, right?
Mr_Nuts  +   294d ago
I kind of meant this dilemma for all games short and long ones.

Fallout/Elder Scrolls or Bioshock are good examples, the games are full of content and are never lacking even without an online yet there comes a time when you feel like your waiting so long for the DLC. Bioshock Infinte is a prime example, people paid money for a season pass and they haven't got there moneys worth yet. The game came out in March and we don't even know what the DLC will even be
admiralvic  +   294d ago
I wouldn't say it's a paradox, just most companies handle it the wrong way.

Probably the best example of it done right is Muramasa Rebirth.

You see, in January it was announced the game would get four DLC characters and we got a sample image of what they would look like and a note saying they will have their own stories. This was 3 months before the game released in Japan, so it was a fair amount of heads up. Around the games release we learned how they will play and to my knowledge we still have yet to see any of them release (or even an in game shot of them).

While the wait sucks, I still know exactly what I am getting and that at least makes the wait tolerable.

You guys complain when a company has a Dlc within a month of realease because it could of been on the game disc now you guys are complaining because the dlc is taking too long. Jeez
sashimi  +   294d ago
In their defense it might be TLOU effect going on. The game is so good that we just want more and we want it now! kind of feeling. I know i'd like some SP dlc to give us some back story for ellie, tess, bill, joel about how got to know each other, and some MP dlc with different modes(horde mode would be awesome)
admiralvic  +   294d ago
People complain about everything... that is just sort of how the world is. Though like everything else, too many people forget that different opinions exist. I kid you not, some people like to quickly get all the DLC, where as others don't, hence why both sides have complaints.

Anyway, I think it's a bit different when Sony was more than happy to offer the Season Pass BEFORE it even released, yet Naughty Dog seems to have no ****ing idea what some people bought. It really makes you question what Sony was thinking on this one.
RE_L_MAYER  +   294d ago
Take my money now naughty dog...just take it and I dont even want anything...dlc would be nice
CrimsonStar  +   294d ago
Uhhhhhh I love naughty dog too but that way of thinking (or worshiping) is what gets us day 1 locked disk dlc .
Jovanian  +   294d ago
1. if you don't know what you're going to do for DLC, don't ask for advanced purchases of it months ahead

2. if you do know what you're doing for DLC before the game is shipped, make it a day 1 FREE dlc or include it in the game itself before it ships

unfortunately ND is transgressing the first DLC sin, and as a developer I have lost a bit of respect for them
ltachiUchiha  +   294d ago
Id understand if it didnt have any multiplayer but seeing that alot of ppl are actually enjoying it, I hope naughty dog take their time & create some really great dlc. I dont want to pay for rushed dlc like most games do.
achmetha  +   294d ago
i hope it's something coop. i was stoked for multiplayer, but these zombie/survivor games just scream coop most of the time. was a little confused why it was not a multiplayer mode at launch, but i'm sure they'll figure something out.
CrimsonStar  +   294d ago
I hope its a flash back with Joel and his brother . Bring on more single player .
RE_L_MAYER  +   294d ago
They probably wont risk messing with main story characters for dlc...could be his friend whitch helped them in one town or perhaps beginning of ellie...hmm that sounds like a good dlc-there is comics for it but I would like to play it as well
Bowzabub  +   294d ago
I already know what one thing will be. Later on this year, after some of the other dlc stuff there's going to be a Halloween themed dlc where you play as a werewolf just like Infamous 2 had Festival of Blood. The movie posters throughout the game are a dead giveaway. Joel's going werewolf mode. Just a guess, but I'm betting on it.
