Meanwhile, work continues on the matchmaking issues
Naughty Dog Software has announced that it is giving away two free multiplayer maps as a thank-you gift to fans enduring long matchmaking times in The Last of Us Remastered.
The multiplayer add-on content the studio teased in July - which included a glimpse of new maps for Factions - will be made available for free.
"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 matchmaking issues," says blog post on the Naughty Dog website.
Naughty Dog has deployed LiveUpdates and Patch 1.02 to ease the matchmaking issue, though it says there's still further work to do. There's no date for when the issue may be fixed, but the studio estimates that the timeframe is "on the short side of weeks, rather than months."
In the meantime, players are advised that, "if you find yourself waiting to get into a match, the best thing you can do is exit matchmaking and select 'Find Match' again."
