The Last of Us: Left Behind Becoming a Standalone Game on May 12th

The Last of Us was already a fantastic game, but it’s DLC ‘Left Behind’ added greatly to the experience. Offering a prequel story of Ellie and her friend Riley, Left Behind was a fantastic look at the character that gamers had come to love so much through the main game. However, since it is a prequel, with only a few scenes taking place during the main campaign, it does hold up well on its own and Naughty Dog is now taking advantage of that by making it into a separate, standalone download starting May 12th. The Last of Us: Left Behind will be available on PS3 and PS4 for $9.99. Players can buy, download, and play Left Behind without owning any other piece of The Last of Us.

“If you haven’t had a chance yet to check out The Last of Us, this is a nicely priced gateway to checking out the world and characters so many people (and critics loved). While part of the story of Left Behind takes place during the main narrative arc of The Last of Us, I think some of the best and most touching moments of any game in recent memory occur during the prequel segments, as we follow Ellie and Riley as they sneak out of boarding school to visit an abandoned mall, getting one final chance to enjoy their friendship before Riley leaves to join the Fireflies.”
