Grounded Bundle, the third and final piece of DLC for The Last of Us, will be released on the week of May 5, which just so happens to be next week. The release window was revealed my Naughty Dog’s Twitter account.

Grounded Bundle DLC will include a new difficulty level for the single-player campaign, called Grounded mode. In this mode “the AI is relentless, smart, and brutal, and survival will be near impossible,” according to developer Naughty Dog.

In addition to this new difficulty level, Ground Bundle also introduces players with the Reclaimed Territories Map Pack. This pack features four new maps: the Wharf from the beginning of the game, where Joel and Tess fight the arms dealer and his men; the Capitol, a map set in Boston; Coal Mine, set in a mining town in Colorado during winter; Water Tower in Lincoln Pennsylvania, a tight map with lots of close quarters combat.

The Survivalist Weapon, Situational Skills and Professional Survival Skills Bundles are all included in the Grounded Bundle, offering four new guns – the silenced Specter rifle, the Double Barrel shotgun, Enforcer pistol, and explosive Launcher – as well as new skills.

You can still purchase The Last of Us season pass for $19.99, which will net you the Grounded Bundle together the Abandoned Territories and Left Behind DLC – all for a price lower than what you’ll pay for just the Grounded Bundle.
