The Last of Us: Left Behind - First Look - Zombie of the Week

Posted by The Daily Zombies Friday, November 15, 2013

At the PlayStation 4 Launch Event, we are promised a return to the gripping apocalyptic world of The Last of Us by Naughty Dog with a new DLC, The Last of Us: Left Behind. 


Easily one of most critically acclaimed games in years with numerous perfect score reviews and many proclaiming it as the game of the generation, The Last of Us was a stellar success in a great year of video gaming that saw the release of acclaimed titles the likes of BioShock Infinite and Grand Theft Auto V. Which explains our delight when Naughty Dog announced at the Spike TV PS4 All Access show that they will be bringing gamers back into the emotion ally gripping world of their first entry into Survival Horrors sooner than one might suspect.

In the form of a new DLC entitled "Left Behind", the content is a prequel to the main story arc presented in the original game with Ellie serving as the protagonist with her best friend from the military boarding school, Riley. Escaping out of the boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone for the last time, Ellie is in for a hell of a time before meeting Joel and kicking off the moving story in the main campaign. 

Hit the jump for the intriguing teaser trailer. 


And here are the details from Naughty Dog's official press release:

Uncharted on PS4 and The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC on PS3 revealed!

This has been an incredible week at Naughty Dog as we were getting ready for two major reveals - both of which blew up the Spike TV PS4 All Access launch extravaganza this evening.

We premiered our first teaser trailer for The Last of Us: Left Behind, a single-player DLC campaign coming early next year. But we weren’t done with announcements quite yet; we had one more treat for our fans – a teaser video that confirms we are working on an Uncharted game on the PlayStation 4 system!

We also provided a little bit more information about both our announcements during the Spike TV PS4 All Access show, which we’ve posting below. Get excited!

The Last of Us: Left Behind is Naughty Dog's first ever single-player DLC. Bruce, Neil, and the rest of the team are getting close to wrapping work on this new campaign, which will meet the quality and gameplay what you've come to expect with The Last of Us, along with a few surprises. 

She's back! Ashley Johnson reprises her role as Ellie in The Last of Us: Left Behind single-player DLC. Left Behind takes place while Ellie is attending a military boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone, prior to meeting Joel and the events in the main campaign of The Last of Us.

In just a few short months since the release of The Last of Us, you have made it clear that Ellie has become one of your favorite characters in games. Today, we're excited to confirm that you play as Ellie throughout the entirety of Left Behind.

Joining Ellie on this new adventure is Riley, her best friend and also a mentor of sorts at the military boarding school. Just as The Last of Us focused on the bond between Ellie and Joel, Left Behind explores the bond between Ellie and Riley through a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.

Bringing Riley to life through our performance capture process is the talented Yaani King, who we had the pleasure of working with on the DLC.

If you just can't wait until the DLC drops to get more of The Last of Us, go out immediately and read the Dark Horse comic series, The Last of Us: American Dreams - which is conveniently available in the recently released paperback collection. I cannot recommend this series enough and it's even more relevant now, as in the comic you will learn more about how Ellie and Riley first became friends, giving you even more insight into Ellie's story in The Last of Us universe. And it's also just plain great!

The Last of Us: Left Behind will be releasing in early 2014 - we will announce a specific date as soon as we iron out all the details. The awesome news is that Left Behind is included in the The Last of Us Season Pass, which also includes a ton of multiplayer DLC, and is the best deal you can get for all the DLC content we've planned to release - over 75% worth of savings compared to buying all the DLC separately. If you're only interested in the single-player DLC, you can pre-order it starting November 19 on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.

We've also got the polaroid image for The Last of Us: Left Behind in convenient wallpaper sizes. Get them now!

We have great news for all our Uncharted fans - Amy, Justin, and the team are hard at work on an amazing new installment of the Uncharted series to be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 system. Our goal is to continue what we've done in previous console generations and once again deliver the best in storytelling, performance capture, technical innovation and graphics on the PS4.

There isn't much more we can say right now about The Last of Us: Left Behind and even less about our Uncharted project. Believe me - we can't wait to shed more light on both of these projects to our fans.

Just in case you are wondering about the Uncharted PS4 teaser mentioned above, here it is.
