Joel, a ruthless survivor with few moral lines left to cross, lives in one of the last remaining Quarantine Zones. These walled-off, oppressive cities are run by what's left of the military. Despite the strict martial law, Joel operates in the black market of the city, smuggling contraband for the right price. Joel is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie. As they trek across a post-pandemic United States, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors. As Joel and Ellie struggle to persevere, they must learn to trust each other and work together in order to survive the realities of this new world.
The Abandoned Territories Map Pack will include four new multiplayer maps: Suburbs, Hometown, Bookstore and Bus Depot.

It has long been known that there will be additional packages to Naughty Dog's acclaimed The Last of Us, and many have already purchased a Season Pass for the game - which gives them instant access to expansion packs when they are out. Now Sony and Naughty Dog finally focused on the veil, and the first of three DLC packs connected to the Season pass rules, The Abandoned Territories Map Pack, is hereby announced.
This package offers four new maps you can take on the game's multiplayer mode. The map Suburbs will partly by a dynamic sandstorm, Bus Depot in an urban area that has been taken over by plant and animal life, and while Bookstores different levels allows for vertical tactics, it will be great opportunities for stealth in the dark Hometown. These four maps will be available on 16 October. Sony and Naughty Dog have also revealed that the next expansion pack - which will be available sometime this winter - will be completely single-player focused, and include a new single-player campaign with a new character. The third, however, shall return to the multiplayer mode, but is not scheduled before launching during the first half of next year.
