On the Naught Dog official developer website, Arne Meyer has posted an update stating that there will be two new maps heading to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of The Last of Us. However, Naughty Dog is still trying to fix those log matchmaking wait times for the PlayStation 4.
Naughty Dog reports in that the development team is rewarding players with two free maps for Factions as a ‘thank you’ for sticking around with the development team as they work to resolve the issues on the PlayStation 4. Both maps will be free to download on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.
It’s time for a quick status update regarding matchmaking in The Last of Us Remastered. We’ve been working hard to alleviate the long waits in Factions matchmaking some of our multiplayer community have been experiencing. We are working on resolving this issue for those in our community who are still affected.
We know this can be frustrating and the team here at Naughty Dog wants everyone in our community to know that working on this issue continues to be our number one priority.
Over the last two weeks, we’ve discovered that the most significant improvements may come from working with other teams at PlayStation to make updates to some of the existing matchmaking libraries. Since we are working with multiple groups inside and outside of the studio, we don’t yet have an exact date on when these updates will roll out. Our current estimate is on the short side of weeks, rather than months. We’ll be sure to keep you updated the moment we can provide more specific timing, or an actual date.
Believe me, the entire team at Naughty Dog completely understands how frustrating this has been for many of you in our community. We’ve got some good news. At the end of July, we teased some new multiplayer add-on content which included a glimpse at new maps for Factions. We’re glad to say that we’ve decided to release these two maps for free on both the PS3 and PS4 in appreciation for all of your continued patience as we work to resolve the matchmaking issues.
