UPDATE: The Last of Us: Left Behind Confirmed for Valentine’s
UPDATE: Naughty Dog has confirmed the date and pricing for The Last of Us: Left Behind.
ORIGINAL POST: Valentine’s Day. A time for love, cards, chocolates, roses… and scavenging to survive a horrific monster-filled apocalypse.
At least this year that last bit will be added to the fun, because according to a posting on the Sony Entertainment Store, The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC is set for release on February 14.
The $15 add-on, first spotted by NeoGaf, is the first new story DLC for Naughty Dog’s latest, and if you pre-order, you’ll also receive the “Ellie Dynamic Theme” and a digital copy of the first issue of American Dreams, The Last of Us four-issue mini-series from Dark Horse.
If you’ve read the comics, which were originally released in July through October 2013, you know what you’re getting into in Left Behind. The DLC, set prior to the events in the core game, will tell the story of Ellie and her teenage friend Riley Abel and how the pair become connected to the Fireflies.
It appears the release date posting was made in error because Sony and Naughty Dog have yet to officially announce it. I contacted Sony to confirm and will update this post with their response.
Whenever it arrives, I’ll be grabbing it. I might not be able to play it on Valentine’s Day because I actually enjoy being married to my wife, but The Last of Us was my 2013 GOTY and I look forward to getting more of it.
