The Last of Us: New Hats in Multiplayer, Game on Sale

Eric Monacelli's Avatar + Posted by Eric Monacelli on Oct 22, 2013 // Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

Halloween is rapidly approaching in North America. We’re celebrating by starting to roll out the initial batch of the multiplayer head items for The Last of Us multiplayer. First up are the Country Flag hats:

Country Flag Hats TLOU 4_720p

Country Flag Hats TLOU 2_720pCountry Flag Hats TLOU 3_720p

Comprising 22 items representing 22 countries, these hats are included as part of The Last of Us Season Pass. If you haven’t purchased a Season Pass, it’s a great deal with 75% savings over buying all the DLC individually. If you’d rather buy the hats separately, they are available for $0.99 each.

If you’ve missed out entirely and haven’t even picked up The Last of Us yet, the North American PlayStation Store is kicking off their Sale of the Dead with deep discounts on the digital version of the full game. Visit the Sale of the Dead blog post for specifics.

Apocalypse is the first community run The Last of Us tournament ever. We’re happy to lend support and provide prizing for it. Check out this fan created trailer promoting the tournament from community member and tournament organizer, Triplewreck:

Choose your faction and enter your best team of survivors. Apocalypse starts Friday, October 25.

Be on the lookout for more tournaments and more multiplayer head items in the coming weeks. See you online!

Please fix my download list so I can download these items!

Customer service couldn’t help me! It’s been over a year! (Since the new store went live)

Why is the multiplayer for this game soooo difficult. I usually never have trouble when getting into matches and racking up some kills. Until I played this game for whatever reason I cant pick it up every game I play I get more deaths than kills and sometimes I cant get any kills. Its disappointing since I really enjoyed the Single player and I hate how I spent 60 bucks a game that I beat once and now just sits on the shelf collecting dust.

Any tips on how to get better in the multiplayer side?

    There are a lot of good videos from the community online about this. Just out our forums as well.

    Most importantly, you have to think about The Last of Us multiplayer differently. It’s about survival and helping your team out and not your kill/death ratio so much.

Even small things like these are welcome, ty Eric and ND team!

by the way, I think the multiplayer lacks variation sometimes, especially because there’s only 3 modes. Any news regarding that? It would be great to get a new mode like Interrogation before the next multiplayer DLC.

I boycott all Season passes. As long as we all keep buying what they’re selling, they will keep holding things back and rushing things out for the sake of longevity within our pockets. There has to be something else than this overwhelmingly slow switch to PC.

Either way, no season passes for me. Probably no DLC either because it divides us as gamers and renders games partly useless, but developers already have our money at that point. Our attention span as gamers probably is too low for developers to actually try, nor to subtly deceive us. It’s been blatant and we all allowed it to happen.

Where are videogames going? It’s up to all of us to make tough choices. Choices with our “money.”

    Yup, it’s completely your choice on how you spend your money. We are making all this DLC from scratch. Nothing was held back and nothing will be rushed. We give the Season Pass option so people can get it all in one shot at a very reasonable price. Your choice.

maybe a bit off topic
i think that they created the last of multiplayer character interface all wrong it should be more like mass effect 3 or gta v where you create a person male or female choose a custom look for your player everyone in the game look the same , and give them special traits that can be change at any time like if one wanted give that player healing that should done out of the character and there should be notification to your teammate that you are healer. rather then the weapons load out .

Woo hoo! 6 1/2 months later and we get hats! awesome! Hell yeah! that’s exactly what I wanted! No longer are Season passes worth it. In fact Season passes have been a joke for a very long time now, and every time I mention this game someone brings up how I wasted my money on the pass, and it pisses me off. The fact is I haven’t played this game in a very long time, and the PS4 comes out in 23 days, and I will no longer care about what they release as DLC.

Picked this game up last night on the sale. ( afew others as well loving these discounts) most likely buying a hat to go with it, but not sure I’ll even be big on the multiplayer. Will check it out for sure though. After i I see how I like the multiplayer I will consider the season pass. But my question, how long will the season pass be available? I’d think once a couple dlc packs come out it would be sort of stupid to keep the pass on the store from a cost/income standpoint.

will be checking this game out tonight after work for sure. And look forward to seeing whatswhat’s in store for it

@Eric Monacelli

Still answering infinitely more questions than SCE I see? Awesome. Anyway, just thought I’d give my 2 cents about trophies again and ask for you guys to NOT include anymore MP trophies and just give us SP trophies with the SP dlc?

Not because I can only do SP trophies before anybody starts with that BS, I’ve got almost 5500 trophies and 100s of them are online trophies (not to blow my own trumpet I just hate the way people always accuse anyone who asks for SP trophies of being bad at MP) but because I think the way Naughty Dog implemented trophies was superb on TLOU and it never got in the way of actually playing and enjoying the game how it was meant to be played and enjoyed and I just don’t see that continuing if you include any MP trophies for the 2 MP dlc packs.

Just hope you take it on board. Don’t spoil TLOUs superb trophy list.
