The Last of Us to get free maps as 'matchmaking apology'

Two additional multiplayer maps for the PS3 and PS4 versions of The Last of Us are to be released for free as an apology to fans for the ongoing matchmaking issues.

In a post on the developer's website, community strategist Arne Meyer said that Naughty Dog has "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."

No release date for the maps has yet been revealed.
