The Last of Us, for many (read: most) was 2013’s game of the year and it ended pretty much perfectly. Which is why ‘Left Behind’, Naughty Dog’s new DLC for the game, works as a prequel. IGN managed to get an exclusive sneak peak at the first minute of the DLC and you can watch it here.
It’s a pretty uneventful clip, but sets the tone. Left Behind looks set to tell the story of Ellie and her friend Riley, in the events that lead up to the fully fledged story in The Last of Us.
It looks interesting enough, but I don’t know that I’m too keen on returning to this universe. I just liked The Last of Us as a package. I like the way it ended. This seems a little forced and I’m not too sure if I’m sold on some of the writing, even just the writing in the clip above.
Regardless, I’m sure I can be convinced to play it.
