The Last of Us has very quickly become a big property on PlayStation 3 and has shot to the top of most gamers hotlist for 2013. With that in mind, fans who have completed the single player campaign and are moving on to the multiplayer aspect of the game will be interested to learn that a new patch has just been released that works to fix a few of the niggling problems that were hampering the online aspect of the game. Check out the list of updated features below.
• 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

Anyone who can actually spot the new texture on the bulletin board in the single player campaign will receive a great deal of fan love by the way! The new update weighs in at just under 75MB, so it shouldn’t break anyone’s broadband limit, or take too long to download. If you are itching to get back into The Last of Us multiplayer then get downloading now! Unless of course you are wise enough to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber, in which case it should be ready and waiting for you already. Isn’t technology wonderful?
