“Bring your best game or you won’t survive.”
Naughty Dog has released a list of patch notes for The Last of Us’ patch 1.07, which will be released globally over the next twenty-four hours. The patch will, of course, be fixing several little single player and multiplayer issues, including bugs and glitches. However, the big new change here is that it will also be adding a new difficulty level to the game.
The Last of Us is no easy game. It’s no Dark Souls in terms of difficulty, of course, but it’s not a cakewalk either. And it looks like Naughty Dog are looking to take it one step further. The latest patch will be adding a “Grounded” difficulty level to the game.
“Want a challenge?” writes Naughty Dog on the PS Blog. “This mode is for the toughest of the hardcore. Super aggressive AI. Bring your best game or you won’t survive.”
The patch will weigh a total of 151 MB.
Naughty Dog has also posted some updates on a few upcoming events. TLoU multiplayer designer Erin Daly and game designer Quentin Cobb will be holding a Reddit AMA on May 9th at 2:30 PM to answer questions about this patch. ND will also be participating in Operation Supply Drop’s 8-Bit Salute event on May 17th.
