The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC released with new trailer

Naughty Dog has released The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC complete with a brand new trailer to mark the occasion.

Left Behind is the first single-player DLC for the critically claimed The Last of Us, available exclusively for PS3.

The single-player DLC pack should give you around 2 hours of additional The Last of Us content, exploring a period before the storyline of the main game occurs.

It will shed some light on the background relationship between Ellie and Riley, and has a slightly different tone to the main game’s campaign.

You can purchase the Left Behind DLC via the Sony Entertainment Network Store for £11.99 on its own or purchase The Last of Us Season Pass for £15.99.

Unfortunately, this will be the first and last single-player DLC content for The Last of Us, as Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli revealed there would only be multiplayer DLC from here on.

“There’s multiplayer DLC up next. We don’t have any more single player DLC planned,” said Monacelli.

The Last of Us: Left Behind does have its very own music, recorded specifically for the DLC, and even Ashley Johnson, the voice of Ellie, claims Left Behind is more “fun” than the main story campaign.

“It’s definitely a bit different. It’s a little bit more ‘fun’, because you have two teenage girls going through a mall,” said Johnson. “It’s kind of like a post-pandemic version of two teenage girls hanging out.”

Naughty Dog has also confirmed it has plans for The Last of Us 2, but is still “brainstorming ideas” for the follow-on game.
