Since its release, The Last of Us: Remastered has had some problems with its matchmaking system in the game’s multiplayer mode. As a bit of a make up to fans, Naughty Dog decided to release two multiplayer maps at no cost to play.
In a blog post on the developer’s website, Naughty Dog opened up about the problems with the multiplayer 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,” the developer wrote. “We are working on resolving this issue for those in our community who are still affected.”
Naughty Dog has released patches for the game that, it claims, has improved the matchmaking in the game. However, the studio admits that more needs to be done.
To make up for the inconvenience, Naughty Dog is giving fans on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 two new maps to apologize for the issues.
“At the end of July, we teased some new multiplayer add-on content which included a glimpse at new maps for Factions,” the post read. “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.”
It’s a better apology than what other companies do, which is nothing. But does Naughty Dog really think they can butter me up with some free content for The Last of Us? I don’t think so, sirs!
That being said, thanks for the maps. I will thoroughly enjoy them.
