Last of Us story DLC revealed

Left behind

I adored The Last of Us – I thought it was a brilliant game. However, I had no desire for them to make a sequel, or add any DLC. The story feels complete to me. The new story DLC goes in a different direction – it’s a prequel.

Here is the video reveal for the DLC titled The Last of Us: Left Behind, launching early next year.

Based on the trailer, it seems that you get to play through events before the main game, when Ellie was hanging out with her friend Riley. However, for those who played the game, we know what ends up happening between Riley and Ellie. I’m not sure I want to play through that emotional roller coaster when I know how it will end.

I honestly think they could have picked more interesting characters to explore. How about letting us play through the story of Ish? Or find out more on Bill – how did he end up owing Joel a favor and what exactly happened with Frank? This seems like a poor choice of side story to tell; I don’t need yet another game playing on a Riley effect.

    DLC is the norm now even as much as we don’t want it. In this case I will avoid is as I agree the story is complete for me.

        If it beats the original I will feel I have been cheated rather than rewarded for continuing support, as this then should have been the original story.

          That’s a weird point of view…. Sort of like saying: I’m stopping watching Walking dead because Season 2 should have been incorporated into Season 1.

            Not really, if you consider the DLC was already planned and if omitted as content from the original game to be DLC,

    I’m going to go with “I don’t have a PS3, I’d be happy with just playing the original game.”

    I just hope that it’s a meaty addition to the Last of us lore, but since I love this game, I would have gotten the DLC any ways.
