NOTE: Patch Notes and Live Updates for The Last of Us Remastered can be found below in the next reply. Here is a quick link to them.


1.00.057 | PATCH | 06-14-2013


"The autosave issue some of you have been encountering has been investigated thoroughly. We have determined that the cause had to do with a server we were using to capture player stats, which is why playing offline may have alleviated the issue for some players. We have addressed the issue with the server." - arne 


1.00.063 | LIVE UPDATE | 06-25-2013


"All missions should now end properly on their third day." - Eric-ND


1.02.074 | PATCH | 06-28-2013




  • Texture of a phone number on a bulletin board changed





  • Host migration has been improved. Losing connection to the host during a migration should occur less often
  • General crash when leaving multiplayer fixed
  • Intro camera fix for some introductory cut-scenes
  • Connectivity issues while playing have been tuned
  • If you disconnect or lose connection to the host, you will no longer advance a clan day. You will only advance a day if you are kicked from the match, or exit through the menu


  • Explosion Expert level 2 should be selectable now
  • The voting time for match selection has been reduced to 15 seconds
  • "No party" playlist options have been added to both Supply Raid and Survivors, players can only join this playlist solo
  • Melee against a downed character now uses the same range as normal melee


1.02.075 | LIVE UPDATE | 07-03-2013


"We have just pushed an increase in the conversion of parts to supplies for the July 4th weekend! An official blog post is incoming so go enjoy some extra supplies for the long weekend!" - MacGruber310


1.03.078 | PATCH | 08-28-2013




  • Fixes for "It’s me" and "By any means" cinematics in the Cutscene Viewer




  • New game mode - Interrogation

Interrogation is a 4 versus 4, two-part objective game mode where rival factions vie to find and open the other faction’s lockbox, stealing the supplies inside. Each team must first achieve five interrogations of players on the other team. Players can get interrogations by shivving an enemy, or getting an enemy into the down state, then pressing triangle while next to them. Once your team collects five interrogations the location of the enemy’s lockbox will be revealed. Your team must attempt to open the lockbox before the other team can collect five interrogations and open your lockbox first. Whichever team opens the opposing team’s lockbox first wins.


  • Revive range has increased slightly (about 1 meter). It’s more difficult to accidentally crawl out of range when a teammate is reviving you now
  • Players can prevent opponents from finishing Executions/Interrogations so that the opponent does not receive Parts for the special Execution/Interrogation. (The downed player will still lose their life, but this makes preventing Executions/Interrogations more helpful to your team as you prevent the other team from gaining Parts.)
  • Matchmaking update: players should find opponents around their level of experience more often and teams should be balanced more evenly
  • Item cache locations adjusted for balance on University, High School, Lakeside, and Downtown
  • Starting cameras adjusted so they show your player with greater frequency
  • Item cache disbursement tweaked so additional items are given out more fairly 
  • Winning a Survivors match by a count of 4 rounds to 0 now means your team will get more bonus parts for winning the match by that margin. This applies for games with scores of 4-1, 4-2, etc. as well. Rewards are tiered by how dominant your team is. This system is in place for Interrogation mode as well.


1.03.079 | LIVE UPDATE | 09-03-2013


"We just pushed a live update that should be active in about 10-20 minutes that will make matchmaking take a bit longer but improve the overall fairness of who you're playing with. It's ping based and shouldn't really make matchmaking take longer than 1 minute or so but we wanted to give you a heads up. As always let us know what's up and how your dogs are. Thanks!" - Eric-ND


1.03.080 | LIVE UPDATE | 09-05-2013


Explosion Expert –


Level 1 – reduced to 20% for explosives, 10% for Molotovs

Level 2 – reduced to 40% for explosives, 20% for Molotovs


Hunting Rifle –


Base Weapon – 10% increase in scope-in speed

                               8% increase in reload speed

Upgrade 1 –        8% increase in scope-in speed


Flamethrower – Killing efficiency has been increased.


"Keep in mind that Upgrade level 2 Hunting Rifle stays exactly the same, and the reload speed of upgrade 1 is the same as before so that will make the Hunting Rifle pretty sweet." - Eric-ND


1.03.081 | LIVE UPDATE | 09-13-2013


"We're putting out a live update that affects matchmaking. New matchmaking criteria requires at least a 200ms ping to the host. This should prevent players from getting matched with players who have a very high latency. You might see slightly longer search times however, especially in off-peak hours since you're getting matched more regionally. Let us know what your experience is in your region. Game on!" - Eric-ND


1.03.081 | LIVE UPDATE | 09-17-2013


"Today you'll see a live update being pushed to try to balance the weapons a bit more fairly. We're testing these out. Give us your feedback here and we'll see how it goes." - Eric-ND


Semi-Automatic Rifle

  • Base:
    • Clip size reduced from 10 to 8
    • Accuracy reduced 8%
  • Upgrade Level 1:
    • Clip size reduced from 12 to 11
    • Accuracy reduced by 4%
  • Upgrade Level 2:
    • No Changes


  • Base:
    • Rate of fire increased by 10%
  • Upgrade Level 1: Rate of fire increased by 7%
  • Upgrade Level 2:  No Changes


Burst Rifle

  • Ammo Cost reduced from 150 to 120 (3 bullets)


1.05.069 | PATCH | 10-15-2013




  • Tweaks to a couple of art assets in the game.




Abandoned Territories Map Pack DLC

  • DLC playlist added for each game type.  This includes both the retail maps and the DLC maps, but the DLC maps should appear much more frequently in the vote.


  • Fixed an issue where players on the winning team would occasionally get fully crafted items or machetes from caches, while players on the losing team would get incorrect items.
  • Players should no longer get comeback weapons (pre-crafted molotovs / bombs / purchase weapons) when they are winning by more than a small margin.
  • Fixed the consistency of comeback weapons spawning - there should be less comeback weapons in close matches and more consistent spawning in severely unbalanced matches. Once a player receives comeback weapons, however, they will not receive them again until a certain amount of progress has occurred in the match.
  • 2x4 Spawning logic has been adjusted in Supply Raid and Interrogation:
    • Fixed a bug where it would occasionally be impossible for a player to receive a 2x4 in a game.
    • Reworked the initial 2x4 spawning logic to make the first 2x4 spawn a bit later to balance the escalation of the match.
    • Lowered the overall number of potential 2x4s that could spawn in a match by including weighting based on match progress.
  • The additional hit on modded melee weapons has been moved from Brawler Level 1 to Level 2, and the health gain from melee hits moved from Level 2 to 1.
  • Added a Parts bonus for late joiners, based on when you join a match in progress. This bridges the gap between players who started from the beginning of the game and might have a Parts advantage over the late joiner.
  • When late-joining beyond the first 2 minutes that match will no longer count towards any clan progress or missions.
  • Fixed an issue on Checkpoint and Lakeside that had locations where some items could not be picked up.
  • Made a fix to prevent players from being able to climb the tilted flag pole on the High School map.
  • Fixed an issue with level graphics dropping out on The Dam.

Interrogation Mode Fixes

  • Games no longer end in ties unless both teams are on the same section of the unlocking process.  If one team has more interrogations than the other, that team will win the match.
  • The additional parts bonus for winning by a large margin is only awarded when the lockbox is fully unlocked.  Otherwise only the standard win bonus is awarded.
  • Killcard now correctly describes whether your character was executed or interrogated.
  • Fire on the ground (from a Molotov) now damages the player when they attempt to unlock the lockbox and will properly interrupt the unlock process.
  • Sounds have been added to the Interrogation animation
  • Fixed a bug where the end-of-match music was not playing in Interrogation mode.

Technical Fixes

  • Intro speech should no longer occasionally be heard twice at the start of the game
  • A flashing exclamation mark will be shown on DLC option for when new items are added


"That’s just the start as we’re already working on the next patch. For now, hop online, enjoy the new maps and let’s all endure and survive. See you online!" - Eric-ND



"We now have the capability to ban players who are found to be exploiting and/or cheating the game or other players. To enact bans, we need concrete proof that an illicit action is taking place, and that is where you, our awesome community, must step up to help. When reporting someone who you believe to be cheating or exploiting the game we need you to record a brief video clip; this can be done via smartphone, camcorder, or PlayStation Eye. The video must pass the following criteria:


  • Clear and steady shot for at least 15 seconds
  • Must NOT be publically viewable – send direct or non-public links only
  • The cheating described in the report is easily identifiable and recognizable.
  • Video is captured in the following formats: (M2V, MOV, MP4, etc)
  • Must be uploaded to an accessible website (Youtube, Mediafire, Sendspace, etc)


Once you have the video please send a message describing the incident in detail, plus a link to your video, to TLOUPlayerReport and we will investigate the report. Due to the large volume of messages it’s unlikely we will be able to reply to everyone, but we will review every inquiry we receive." - Eric-ND


1.05.082 | LIVE UPDATE | 10-15-2013


"Reconnect to the multiplayer to get a live-update to 1.05.082. 5 customization items unlocked by supplies." - sintax201


1.05.083 | LIVE UPDATE | 10-15-2013


"Once patch 1.05 was pushed there were a few issues with earned parts. We've fixed those via live update and earned parts should be back to pre-1.05 levels. As always keep us posted with any oddities. Thanks!" - Eric-ND


1.05.085 | LIVE UPDATE | 11-04-2013


"Hiya... we pushed a live update to TLOU MP today that fixed some exploits in Suburbs and Downtown. Game on!" - Eric-ND


"Quick update- Suburbs was not fixed yet, we're planning on getting it out by tomorrow morning (PDT). Thanks." - EvangM


1.05.088 | LIVE UPDATE | 11-18-2013




The Last of Us on PS3 The Last of Us on PS3 The Last of Us on PS3


Government Issue Bundle – Available immediately for Season Pass holders, releasing November 19 on the PlayStation Store for $8.99 (individual head items prices vary).


Rally Bundle – Available immediately for Season Pass holders, releasing December 3 on the PlayStation Store for $8.99 (individual head items prices vary).


Bygones Bundle – Available immediately for Season Pass holders, releasing December 17 on the PlayStation Store for $8.99 (individual head items prices vary).


1.05.090 | LIVE UPDATE | 11-21-2013


"Hi! We made some live updates. Certain areas and regions in Bus Depot and Suburbs maps have been patched to prevent exploits. GAME ON!" - Eric-ND


1.05.092 | LIVE UPDATE | 12-12-2013


  • Under the new matchmaking criteria, all players must have a 100ms ping or better to the host.
  • A good ping at the start of a match does not guarantee a good ping throughout the match - especially if your internet connection is in use by other people/devices.
  • Players behind a closed NAT may have (but not necessarily) a higher latency to other players in the match because their network traffic will always be routed through the host, whereas normally much of this traffic will be peer to peer.
    • To check your NAT type, go to Settings --> Network Settings --> Settings and Connection Status List --> Scroll down to NAT Type.
    • Type 3 is closed, Type 2 is moderate, Type 1 is open.


1.05.093 | LIVE UPDATE | 12-16-2013


"We're going to run another trial today - version .93, should be up now. This is one that attempts to find a middle ground.  The new settings will perform a lot more searches with the max ping of 100ms to the host, then it will do some searches at 150 before finally going on to the previous max limit of 200.  This will mean matchmaking times will still be a bit longer than before the trial, but players who could not find matches anymore should be able to again.  Note: when searching for games in these ping ranges, however, there is very little chance of finding players of similar experience." - Eric-ND


1.05.094 | LIVE UPDATE | 01-13-2014


"We updated and corrected some translations. Language update only." - Eric-ND


1.05.095 | LIVE UPDATE | 01-14-2014


"Thanks for the continued feedback on our matchmaking.  While there are some larger fixes coming in the next patch to address latency, in the meantime we are making a change to matchmaking to address another issue, namely getting matched with players who are speaking a different language.  Previously there were 6 stages in the search process that required that the host have the same language setting, now there are 12 (out of a total of 19).  This should make it more likely to get matched with players using the same language setting.  This change is in version.95 and should be live now.


Note that language setting does not necessarily guarantee that players will be speaking your language over the mic.  Players may have their PS3 set to one language but be speaking another." - MacGruber310


1.05.096 | LIVE UPDATE | 01-29-2014


"What we're doing in this update is a change that should hopefully create faster matchmaking times for most players. We've adjusted our geographic criteria for most of the matchmaking stages to return matches that are closer to your location. In theory this should result in finding a match that meets the ping criteria more quickly." - MacGruber310


1.06.123 | PATCH | 02-13-2014



  • Patch 1.06 is required to play The Last of Us: Left Behind chapter
  • Adds "Left Behind" to the Main Menu
  • Adds 10 new Trophies (1 Silver, 9 Bronze) for The Last of Us: Left Behind




Networking - Patch 1.06: Networking Changes Discussions

We've been working hard to improve the latency issues that many of our players have reported. We have made two changes to networking in Patch 1.06 which should lead to improvements in online play. We will keep a close watch on how these changes work out, as it is difficult to effectively test for the real-world environment. We absolutely need to hear your experiences and your feedback about these changes.

  • Network update rate doubled
    • Doubled the rate player movement updates are sent peer-to-peer, reduced latency in game engine to 66ms.
    • Increasing the network update rate will increase network traffic on your Internet connection. Let us know if you are having trouble with your Internet connection after this change and/or if you are hitting our Lag Detection Check frequently.
  • Lag Detection Check now stricter
    • This change is designed to catch situations where a player is lagging significantly and causing severe problems.
    • When the Lag Detection Check occurs, your character will be frozen in place and you will see the Network Trouble icon appear on your screen. This is to ensure the lagging player cannot gain an advantage during this time.
  • Added Network Trouble icon
    • If you are seeing the Network Trouble icon frequently, here are some things you can do to improve your connection:
      1. Use a wired Ethernet connection instead of Wi-Fi.
      2. Avoid any major internet usage while playing. Things like torrents, Netflix, YouTube, etc. will have a big impact on your performance.
      3. Ensure your NAT (Network Address Translation) is not restricted (Type 3).  To check if it is, go to the XMB --> Settings --> Network Settings --> Network connection test). Check with your router manufacturer for specific instructions on how to open up your NAT for your specific router model.
  • Network Lag Detection Feedback
    • Feedback we are looking for:
      1. Are you still seeing severe lag situations, e.g. dying several seconds after you killed another player?
      2. Are you getting the Network Trouble icon frequently? Do you see it almost constantly or only a few times during a match?
      3. Have you tried the above steps to improve your connection?


Interrogation Mode - Patch 1.06: Interrogation Mode Changes Discussions

  • Under certain conditions, the defending team would respawn too quickly and too close to their lockbox, making it too difficult for the attacking team to make progress. To alleviate this condition, we have made the following changes.
    • All players will have a minimum respawn time of 7 seconds, if their lockbox has spawned.
    • A team will not respawn instantly when the whole team is wiped out, if their lockbox has spawned.
    • Spawn exclusion zones around the lockboxes have been adjusted across all maps so defenders don't spawn too close to their own lockbox.
  • Other fixes
    • To improve spawning, reduced time that dead allies affect the downweight on spawn points from 40 seconds to 20 seconds.
    • Fixed an issue where a player could get downed by a bomb just as they open a lockbox, and continue opening the lockbox while at 0 health.
    • Fixed an issue where a lagging player could continue unlocking the box for some time after being attacked or downed.
      • Note: Unfortunately this fix introduced a new issue where a player opening the lockbox cannot be shivved properly. This issue was caught after we submitted this patch and we weren't able to update the patch before going live. This is a known issue and we will issue a fix for this in the next patch.
    • Fixed an issue with the end of match music stinger so it plays when the "You Won" or "You Lost" pop-up appears on screen, before the final scoreboard.


Survivors Mode

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the 2x4 to spawn in the center item cache.


Reviving and Bleed-out - Patch 1.06: Reviving & Bleed-out Discussions

Under certain conditions the revive system can allow teams to get their teammates back into combat too quickly, as when there are multiple players reviving.  To address these issues we've made the following changes.

  • Reduced the speed bonus that a player assisting with the revive gives from 50% to 25%.
  • Reviver skill now only applies for the player who started the reviving action.
  • Parts for reviving a player are reduced from 100 to 50 after that player has already been revived. Resets to default on player death.
  • Supply Raid and Survivors only: Bleed-out time for a player (15 seconds in Supply Raid, 40 seconds in Survivors) is now reduced by 25% each time that player is revived, up to a maximum 50% off. Resets to default on player daeth.


Melee - Forums Thread

  • Fixed where shooting a player who was in process of a melee attack could result in the melee attacker aborting the move after the melee victim already registered the hit.
  • Now melee attacks will only abort when the attacker is in the wind-up phase of the attack.
    • Note: because of latency, you may be seeing a player in the wind-up phase on your machine, but on their machine the attack is already connecting. In this case the melee attack will not abort.
  • Fixed “shiv dance”. If you damage a player, that player won't be able to shiv you for the next 3 seconds. 



  • Fixed an issue where downed players would make it more likely for teammates to spawn near them.


Supply Boxes - Patch 1.06: Supply Box Changes Discussions

  • Fixed an issue where the machete could spawn as a comeback item when the player already has a machete.
  • When spawning a comeback item, a molotov will only spawn if the player already has 2 bombs. If the player already has 2 bombs and 2 molotovs, no comeback item will spawn.
  • Fixed Supply Raid and Interrogation where players with 1 execution and only 1 or 2 deaths would get additional crafting ingredients from a supply box
  • Fixed exploit where a player could fire off a couple shots before opening a supply box and get extra ammo.
    • Players now receive ammo in more precise quantities, so players won't get a box of 5 bullets when they should only get 2 bullets.
    • As a result, more ammo boxes will spawn with varying amounts of ammo.
    • Slight adjustments were made to the ammo given for certain weapons to keep them consistent with the current ammo given under the old scheme.
  • Fixed an issue where players could lose a comeback item or weapon by being killed after opening a supply box, but before picking anything up. Now, players will have the same chance of getting that item or weapon at the next supply box.
  • Fixed issue in Survivors where players could get additional items by opening a box, not picking up the items, then going to another box to open and pick up items, and returning to the first opened box to pick up additional items.
  • Fixed issue where player who was Last One Standing would not get any ammo from a supply box.
  • Fixed issue where Flamethrower could not be picked up when it spawned as a comeback weapon.
  • Re-balanced ammo in comeback weapon spawns to match the amount when purchased:
    • Shotgun went from 5 to 2.
    • Assault Rifle from 20 to 10.
    • El Diablo from 4 to 3.



  • Fixed an issue where two of the supply boxes on Bill's Town would not respawn in Survivors.
  • Fixed an issue in Supply Raid and Interrogation where the supply box behind the Sammy's sign on Bill's Town would respawn while players were still close to the spawn point.
  • Fixed an issue in all modes on Checkpoint where the item cache in front of the movie theater would not respawn under certain conditions.
  • Adjusted regions on High School for supply boxes in Elimination (side boxes) to improve the balance and ensure they respawn at the same rate as the other boxes on the map.


Weapon Balance
We have other weapon balance changes in the works, but with the amount of fixes going into this patch we haven't been able to spend enough time to implement and test them thoroughly. We'll let you know when they're ready.

  • Max ammo for Shorty increased from 6 to 8, due to ammo box spawning changes


Loadout Balance - Patch 1.06: Loadout Balance Changes Discussions

  • Crafter 3 increased from 5 to 6 loadout points.
  • Military Sniper purchase weapon decreased from 4 to 3 loadout points.
  • Machete purchase weapon decreased from 4 to 3 loadout points.
  • Strategist Level 1 decreased from 2 to 1 loadout points.
  • Collector parts bonus no longer applies to gifted items or healing.


We have located one of the more common crashes that occurs when players late-join a match. Unfortunately, this fix didn't make it in time for this patch, but it will be in the next patch. In addition, we are still actively working to isolate and fix other reported crashes.



  • Fixed late-joining players receiving extra parts after a host migration occurs.
  • Fixed where some player outlines (allies or enemies) would fail to draw when enemies were marked using Hawk Eye 2 or 3.


1.06.124 | LIVE UPDATE | 02-17-2014


"Note: on Feb 16 we pushed a live update (1.06.124) which removed the network update rate increase but kept the lag detection tighter than it was on 1.05.  Please read and give us feedback on your experience." - ndi-edaly


Network Lag Detection Feedback - Patch 1.06: Networking Changes Discussions - Part 2

  • Feedback we are looking for:
      1. Are you still seeing severe lag situations - e.g. dying several seconds after you killed another player?
      2. Are you getting the disconnect icon frequently?  Do you see it almost constantly or only a few times during a match?
      3. Where are you located?
      4. Are you using a wired or wireless connection?
      5. What is your NAT type set to? (Check in XMB --> Settings --> Network Settings --> Network connection test)
      6. Are there any uploads, streaming video (YouTube / Netflix), or torrents going on while you're playing multiplayer?
      7. Have you tried exiting matchmaking and finding a new match? Does every match you find have the same issues?

"We just pushed a live update - version 1.06.124.  This contains a fix for the issue where players who revived a teammate that had been revived before were receiving 50% less parts on all actions.  Players will receive full parts (100) for all revives." - ndi-edaly


1.06.125 | LIVE UPDATE | 02-20-2014


"This update changes some back-end settings to allow us to track our player counts more accurately.  There are no other changes to report." - ndi-edaly


1.06.126 | LIVE UPDATE | 03-13-2014


"Since 1.06 with its increased lag detect threshold we've been seeing way more reports of the invisibility bug (players running around killing other players while invisible).


This is a very difficult bug to reproduce and debug (and has many causes). Although our network programmer doesn't think the lag detect kicking in could cause this bug, we're going to try an experiment and change the lag detect threshold to where it was pre-1.06 and see if players are still getting the invisibility bug.


This change should be live now with the version number 1.06.126." - ndi-edaly

1.06.127 | LIVE UPDATE | 03-26-2014


"A couple weeks ago we did an experiment to see if our lag detect threshold (which displays the network disconnect icon when it kicks in) was affecting the frequency of the dreaded invisibility bug (players running around killing other players while invisible).  We appreciate your feedback on this issue (original thread is here), and we've completed the experiment - there were still quite a few reports of the invisibility bug with the more relaxed lag detect threshold.  So the lag detect threshold is now back to the same level as before.  This update is now live - version 1.06.127." - ndi-edaly


1.07.002 | PATCH | 05-06-2014



Grounded Difficulty added for Single Player.

  • Want a challenge? This mode is for the toughest of the hardcore. Super aggressive AI. Bring your best game or you won't survive.

  • The Military Sniper has reduced aim assist.


Feature additions and changes


Melee - Community Discussion


  • Machete now interrupts melee like a gunshot would.  This, combined with the change to a 3-hit swing allows it to beat an upgraded 2x4 in a fight where both players swing at the same time.
  • Machete now has a 3 swing animation and takes 3 hits to down.
  • Upgrading any Melee Weapon now requires 3 items to upgrade (blade, binding and rag).

  • Players wearing certain masks and helmets will now have a muffled filter added to their dialogue.
  • Players will now call out to teammates while in the down state.

  • The depth of field on High School was tweaked to match the other multiplayer maps.

Supply Boxes

  • Supply boxes now only spawn comeback weapons (purchase weapon or machete) when a player is the "Last One Standing". In situations where a player would have received a comeback weapon, that a player now receives a 2x4 (if they don’t already have one).
  • Increased threshold for comeback parts to spawn so they won't spawn when a team is losing by a small margin.


New Maps - Community Discussion


  • Water Tower
    • Set in Lincoln, PA, the Water Tower map features two primary chokepoints for some deadly face-to-face confrontations. It's mainly an outdoor map with a few indoor areas and some very unique lighting. It might seem open but it's really a tight map that's perfect for close quarters melee.
  • Capitol
    • Set in Boston, the Capitol Map features indoor and outdoor gameplay. It encourages the intelligent use of flanking.
  • Coal Mine
    • Set in Colorado, Coal Mine is a winter map that is spotted with abandoned buildings. It's a spacious map that has long lines of sight and a bridge that's a perfect perch for snipers. The dynamic snowstorm obscures the view so be on your toes.
  • Wharf
    • Set in the rusted-out docks where Joel encountered Robert, the Wharf map features close quarters gameplay, two snipers nests, and a giant boat. It's full of good opportunities for climbing, flanking and stealth.

  • Scoped Burst Rifle
    • Scoped version of the Burst Rifle.

New Missions

  • All new weapons have their own missions 

Updated Pre-set Loadouts



PS3 1.08 Patch Notes:

Patch 1.08 File Size: 151MB


NOTE: that all these fixes are already included in The Last of Us: Remastered on PS4.


Weapon Balance

  • Hunting Rifle scope altered to show headshot hit marker.
  • Hunting Rifle scope upgrade level 2 is visually different, like in Single Player.
  • Hunting Rifle now does 70 damage instead of 55.  It's still 2 shots to down but Hunting Rifle players can now finish off wounded enemies more easily.
  • Reduce aim assist of second level zoom on Hunting Rifle and Military Sniper

Bug fixes

  • Fix for buying armor, switching to another loadout while alive, then respawning and losing the armor
  • Fix for buying purchaseable weapon, switching to another loadout which has the same purchaseable weapon, respawning and losing the purchased weapon
  • Fix for being able to spawn on a teammate after switching to a loadout with Strategist 3 before having spawned with that loadout
  • Fix for being able to buy ammo for purchaseable weapon on the waiting-to-respawn screen without the price going up
  • Fix to losing durability on a melee weapon when killing a downed player from more than 1.5 meters away
  • Fix to player going into t-pose when in high cover while holding a shiv
  • Fix for modded 2x4 not downing a player on slopes in certain cases
  • Fix for 2x4 missing player on a slope when doing the horizontal swing animation
  • Fix to not being able to shiv a player from behind on a slope unless you were extremely close
  • Fix to not being able to shiv a stunned player from the front on a slope
    • Note: unfortunately this fix introduced a separate bug where in rare cases of a smoke bomb shiv from the front, the animation of the attacker and victim don't line up properly.  No shiv functionality is affected, this bug is visual only. We are looking into a fix for this.
  • Players using Bomb Expert 3 will no longer be stunned by their own smoke bomb while vaulting or falling
  • Hit sound and enemy flinch reaction for bombs and molotovs now only plays when you actually damage your opponent. The flinch radius was larger than the damage radius on bomb, molotov, and launcher.
  • Fix for late-joiner in a game of Survivors getting additional ingredients and parts at the first supply box in every round
  • Fix for picking up a modded melee weapon and receiving an extra binding / blade / rag
  • Fix for Specter firing sound not playing on University map
  • Fix to Last One Standing not kicking in when players quit a match to leave one player on a team
  • Fix to Last One Standing items not spawning when player had a supply box open at the moment when they became Last One Standing, then picked up the items from that box
  • Fix to Last One Standing items spawning at multiple supply boxes in Survivors under certain rare conditions
  • Fix to 2x4's that weren't picked up sometimes not getting cleaned up when player moves far away from the supply box that spawned it
  • Fix for game ending vox occasionally not playing

Supply Box Balance

  • Supply boxes now adjust for unbalanced teams.  Being on a team of 3 players against a team of 4 players is equivalent to being down by 3 lives in Supply Raid or 2 rounds in Survivors.  There is no reduction in items for players who are on the team with more players. 

Team Balance

  • Improved logic for balancing teams between matches
    • Players are rated based on their combined leaderboard KDR values from Supply Raid and Survivors.
    • Teams are balanced such that the sums of each team's player ratings are as close as possible.
    • This also applies to parties, however when parties are involved the assignments of players are more limited so the team balance may not be as close.
    • Note that Interrogation mode also uses the combined KDR values from Supply Raid and Survivors.  In future updates if we have time we'd like to add a unique player rating for each mode.

TLOUR Patch Notes & Live Updates [UPDATED: 10-18-2014]

[ Edited ]
last month



1.01.004 | LIVE UPDATE | 07-29-2014


"We've pushed a live update to alleviate some of the issues in the matchmaking delays.  We're still working to make the process smoother and looking into other causes for the unresponsiveness.  


If you notice any more oddities, please let us know about them here or in the matchmaking issues thread.


If you don't have the update yet, please close out your application and relaunch it." - sintax201


1.01.005 | LIVE UPDATE | 07-30-2014


"Pushing out another live update to TLOU: Remastered, continuing to work on the matchmaking issues people are having.  Please reconnect to MP to get it.  If you still aren't seeing it after that, restarting the game should snag it.


We're continuing to look into more issues with the matchmaking. Please keep posting here and in our other thread as you experience issues." - sintax201


1.01.007 | LIVE UPDATE | 07-31-2014


"We've just updated the PS4 to help parties find games in matchmaking quicker.  To get onto the newest version, please back out of factions and re-enter.  We are working on a patch to fix various other bugs so please be patient while it goes through implementation, testing and submission.  If you have any problems with matchmaking or finding games, please report them here with as many details as you can. We will continue to monitor matchmaking and we'll provide updates as soon as we can. Thanks." - MacGruber310


1.01.012 | LIVE UPDATE | 08-07-2014


"We've just pushed a live update that should improve matchmaking times. While this is a not a full fix, our update should hopefully reduce matchmaking times. We are still working on a patch which should dramatically improve matchmaking times and we'll get into more detail about that a bit later. Also, in this live update is a fix to the Flamethrower damage. The PS4 Flamethrower should now output damage at the same speed as the PS3 Flamethrower.


Please back out of Factions and re-enter and you should be on version 1.01.012. Also, if you could describe your matchmaking times here it would greatly help us determine how our changes are doing. Thank you!" - MacGruber310


1.02.012 | PATCH | 08-08-2014


"Patch 1.02 will be deployed in North America today. We are working to have the patch deployed in Europe as soon as possible over the weekend, and we expect the patch to be deployed in Asia next week. If you are already logged in, be sure to quit out of the game and check your Downloads notifications that the update file for The Last of Us Remastered has been downloaded and installed.


As many of you may know, especially if you are among the many, many, many people who have been playing our Factions multiplayer mode, that some people have been experiencing long wait times while trying to find a match. We've deployed several LiveUpdates over the past week in an effort to improve the matchmaking wait times. Things have definitely improved but there still remains work for us to get the matchmaking experience where we feel it should be. Patch 1.02 is our latest effort to continuing improving the matchmaking experience.


Once the patch has been deployed, the team here will be keeping a close eye on the time it takes to find a match among our player community so we can continue to address this issue.


One tip: if you've found yourself waiting what you feel is a very long time to get into a match, quit out of matchmaking and go back into "Find a Match". Even though this adds an extra step, we've found that it sometimes helps players get into matches quicker than continuing to wait." - arne

  • Matchmaking updates to improve long wait times some players have experienced to find a match


1.02.015 | LIVE UPDATE | 08-12-2014


"We've just pushed a live update that should help users connect to each other better.  This should improve matchmaking quliaty and times. Please make sure you are on the latest version, play a few games and let us know what kind of matchmaking times you experience and the quality of your connection during the match. Thanks!" - MacGruber310


1.02.016 | LIVE UPDATE | 08-13-2014


"1.02.016 was just pushed that has an updated geopraphy database so you should more accurately find players closer to your geographical location. This doesn't mean that it will only find games with players near your geographical location. This means that during the steps in matchmaking that look for games within your geo location will be more accurate. Of course, if there are no games at the time while you are searching that are in your geo location, matchmaking will move on to widen the search geographically.  Feedback about this latest update will be super helpful to us as we continue to work on improving matchmaking. Remember, the more details the better when it comes to feedback about any issue. We'd like to know what your average wait times are, what playlist you are in, how many players in your party, what country you are in and what time of day you were playing. This information is helpful even if you getting into games quickly as it helps us compare shorter wait times with longer wait times.


We are still working on a patch (1.03) that should reduce matchmaking times and increase the quality of connections.  This patch will also have bug fixes and few surprises :smileyvery-happy:." - MacGruber310

The Last of Us Remastered - Patch 1.04 Notes


Factions Multiplayer

  • Updates to matchmaking


Yes, that's it. It's a very minor patch!" - arne


1.04.020 | LIVE UPDATE | 10-02-2014


"We just pushed out a live update (version 1.04.20) to The Last of Us: Remastered with a couple small tweaks:


  • Removed a couple of the matchmaking stages that were rarely suceeding 
  • Set all maps to the same priority, so Beach and Financial Plaza should come up at the same frequency as all the other maps


We are still working on the more severe issues players are seeing such as being unable to join parties, losing connections mid-match, and sometimes getting very long matchmaking times.  You can give us your feedback on those issues in this thread: Network Issues update [PS4] – Sep 26, 2014" - ndi-edaly


1.04.021 | LIVE UPDATE | 10-18-2014


"Live Update 1.04.21:


Since the PSN server update a couple weeks ago we haven't been seeing as many players experiencing the long matchmaking times that some people were getting during the couple months after the game launched.  As such we have updated the matchmaking settings so in each stage of matchmaking the server returns a larger number of matches (the same number which is used on the PS3).  Previously this number was set lower on PS4 to allow players to help counteract the long matchmaking times.


In practical terms what this should mean is that you have a better chance of finding a match with decent latency since you will be evaluating (pinging) more hosts during each stage of matchmaking.


We are still working on matchmaking in general and hope to have some further improvements to discuss in the near future." - ndi-edaly
