The lights are on
The Last of Us is getting at least three expansions by way of DLC. One of those will be a single-player content, and the other two will add new multiplayer content. This is the first time Naughty Dog will be adding single-player DLC to any of its games. We still don't know how the multiplayer will work in The Last of Us (it's not co-op) but the two multiplayer DLC packs will add, "multiplayer maps and other expansions." Naughty Dog is promising more details on The Last of Us' multiplayer soon saying, "It’s an experience that continues the themes, tone, and tension from the single player campaign and we can’t wait to tell you more about it."
By purchasing the season pass, which is $19.99, you will also gain access to a number of extras including faster crafting, healing, and reloading on the 9mm. You will also be able to carry more rifle ammo, and watch Grounded, a 90-minute documentary on the making of the game.
You can pre-order the game through normal retail channels, but Sony is also taking pre-orders from players who want to download the game on day one directly to their hard drives. The game will have a special installer so that you can start playing The Last of Us once your download reaches the halfway point.
The Last of Us is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 on June 14.

In all seriousness, this sounds great.
I'm not a fan of buying something that they haven't made, I haven't seen, and I may or may not want hence I have sworn off of "season passes". Otherwise the game looks great.
This is one of the season passes I will pick up right away. Sounds great.
I'll be spending the money to get this. The Last of Us will be played to 100% (Which I very rarely do for any game) So many games, Not enough time. Can't Wait!
Wow... Just wow...
More than likely, the DLC for single player will be $10-15. I'm not interested in the multiplayer, yet. If I think it looks good and can't live without it I will pick it up later.
I literally can't wait for this game. This has been one of my most anticipated games for a long time (Bioshock infinite being the other, which was GOTY imo). But a season pass...really? They are really banking on the fact that people will love the MP that they haven't even shown or said anything about yet. All they've said is that it will change the way you look at MP. Okay, how? Its two weeks from launch and nothing yet. Come on Naughty Dog. You can announce a MP&SP season pass, but you can't say anything about the MP. Rants over.
I'm sure the SP DLC will be amazing. And if the MP actually does end up being good, I might play it (hate MP minus Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3).
