The Last Of Us Patched To Remove Inappropriate Phone Numbers, Multiplayer Tweaks

by Kyle Hilliard on Jun 29, 2013 at 11:30 AM

The Last of Us is getting a patch today that will tweak some aspects of the multiplayer, but it will also remove a pair of phone numbers that appear on an in-game bulletin board.

The two phone numbers appeared on a flyer for pest control, and they were both for phone sex hotlines. The Last of Us's creative director Neil Druckmann confirmed to Kotaku that the inclusion of the numbers was a mistake. The patch, which goes live today at 5 PM PST, will remove the numbers.

You can see the full list of changes below, or on Naughty Dog's website:

Single player

  • 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
