Naughty Dog also promises upcoming updates for the match-making.
The Last of Us: Remastered (along with the PS3 edition) will receive two free multiplayer maps for the Factions Mode according to Naughty Dog. This was revealed by community strategist Arne Meyer who provided updates on the overall match-making and multiplayer experience of the game.
“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.”
These new maps have been provided as a means to thank the community for the presence. Meyer noted that “if you find yourself waiting to get into a match, the best thing you can do is exit matchmaking and select ‘Find Match’ again.” Have you still been experiencing issues with the match-making in either edition?
