Developer Naughty Dog confirmed today that the Grounded Bundle DLC for The Last of Us is coming on May 5.
The DLC will include a new difficulty mode called “Grounded Mode” which is said to be extremely hard.
“The AI is relentless, smart, and brutal, and survival will be near impossible,” explained Naughty Dog. For those that are able to complete the mode, you’ll earn the “Completed Grounded Mode” trophy.
The Grounded Mode for The Last of Us is included with the DLC pass, but you can buy it separately for $5.
The Grounded Bundle will also include the Reclaimed Territories Map Pack, which feature four new maps: Wharf, Capitol, Coal Mine, and Water Tower. Each map will have six trophies to earn and will be based off the campaign. This content can also be picked up for $10 by itself.
New guns and survival skills will also be a part of the bundle, such as the Survivalist Weapon Bundle, which adds four weapons: Specter, Double Barrel, Enforcer, and Launcher. Two new Survival Skills Bundles (Situational Survival Skills and Professional Survival Skills) are also included with the pass.
Finally, all players will get the new Full-Auto Rifle as a free download.
