No New The Last of Us Story Content Planned After Left Behind
Savor the experience in The Last of Us: Left Behind, because Naughty Dog says it’s not planning to make any more single-player DLC.
As spotted by IGN, Community Strategist Eric Monacelli took to the PlayStation Blog post featuring The Last of Us: Left Behind trailer to answer a few questions, including whether or not more story content is in the pipeline.
“There’s multiplayer DLC up next,” Monacelli stated. “We don’t have any more single-player DLC planned.”
So it appears this is the end of Ellie’s adventure — at least for now. Naughty Dog has stated it will “explore” making another game in The Last of Us’ infected world, if not a direct sequel, and Sony has already trademarked The Last of Us 2 and 3.
As for what we’ll be getting in Left Behind, we already knew it was the prequel story of Ellie and her friend Riley Abel and how the pair become connected to the Fireflies. If you read The Last of Us: American Dreams comics, then you already know what’s coming story wise. In the video interview above, Naughty Dog also shared some additional gameplay details:
- Left Behind “exceeds the level of narrative density” in the core game.
- There is more emphasis on exploration and non-combat gameplay.
- The main area the DLC takes place in is a shopping mall, and Ellie and Riley will find a “playground of lost history.”
- Combat will showcase new multi-faction combat. Fights will no longer be against either the infected or other humans. Players will face them both in areas and can pit the factions against one another.
We’ll all get take a trip to the infected shopping mall when The Last of Us: Left Behind is released on February 14.
