Naughty Dog has announced that the next The Last of Us DLC pack, Grounded Bundle, will launch in the week beginning May 5.
It will presumably hit the North American PlayStation Network on Tuesday May 6 and the European one on Wednesday May 7.

The third and final The Last of Us DLC pack included with the game's season pass will introduce a new single-player campaign difficulty level and four new multiplayer maps.
In Grounded mode "the AI is relentless, smart, and brutal, and survival will be near impossible," Naughty Dog says. It will be priced at $4.99 standalone.
The DLC will also include the Reclaimed Territories map pack, featuring four new multiplayer arenas: the Wharf from near the beginning of the game, the Capital in Boston, a Coal Mine in Colorado, and Lincoln, PA map Water Tower. The map pack will cost $9.99 for non-season pass holders.
Four new weapons, the Specter silenced assault rifle, Double Barrel shotgun, Enforcer pistol, and explosive Launcher will be available for free as part of pre-set loadouts, or as part of a $5.99 Survivalist Weapon Bundle outside the season pass. Several new survival skills will be priced at $3.99 apiece.
Sony has confirmed that The Last of Us Remastered will arrive on PS4 later this year. Priced at $59.99, the title will feature multiple graphical improvements over 2013's PS3 original, plus DLC including the Left Behind single-player add-on.
