Naughty Dog announced today that it is working on two new maps for the Factions multiplayer mode in The Last of Us on both PS3 and PS4. The maps will be handed out for free “in appreciation for all of your continued patience” in regards to issues plaguing the game’s online matchmaking.
“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,” read a post from Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer on the developer’s blog. A release date for these maps has not yet been disclosed.
Even though major improvements have been made to the matchmaking process in The Last of Us, there is still work that needs to be done claims Naught Dog. Utilizing teams “inside and outside of the studio,” the developer anticipates new updates to alleviate further issues will be rolling out “on the short side of weeks, rather than months.” A specific date has not been solidified, the blog post notes.
“In the meantime, if you find yourself waiting to get into a match, the best thing you can do is exit matchmaking and select ‘Find Match’ again,” Naughty Dog suggests.
