I’m not sure that The Last of Us really needed any story DLC. That story was so complete and spot on, but it’s not my call. The Last of Us: Left Behind is coming on Valentine’s Day, and will be the one and only single player DLC.
According to the Playstation EU blog, the DLC will be of a “good” length depending on how good you are at the game and what difficulty you play it on. However, the real DLC focus is on multiplayer:
There’s multiplayer DLC up next. We don’t have any more single player DLC planned.
We also got a new trailer for the DLC:
For the non-video viewers among you, the trailer shows off Ellie and Riley playing at being zombies and being crazy teenage girls. It’s sweet and endearing and, okay fine – I want to play this DLC now. Stupid Naughty Dog making awesome, polished games that are totally worth the time and investment.
Here is the cinematic interview:
Here we find out that the DLC actually has more narrative density. Wow, so even more story and character. Sure, we know that something terrible has to happen, but I suppose it’s worth seeing what that was, and maybe gaining deeper insight into Ellie’s character. I’m intrigued by the change in gameplay – less combat and more exploration. All in all, it should be a nice extra experience tacked onto a fantastic game. I will definitely miss Joel, though – he was pretty epic in the original game.
