The Last of Us: Left Behind is the game's final story expansion

Naughty Dog confirms "We don't have any more single-player DLC planned."

The Last of Us: Left Behind represents the only story expansion Naughty Dog plans to release for its acclaimed PlayStation 3 action game, the developer has said. Community strategist Eric Monacelli explained on the PlayStation Blog that while new multiplayer content is in the works, "We don't have any more single-player DLC planned."

Left Behind is a prologue to the main Last of Us campaign and focuses on Ellie and her friend Riley. It is described as "playful" compared to the main game, though it will contain "extremely challenging" fights.

Regarding how many hours of gameplay it contains, Monacelli said, "It'll be a good length. Depends on how good you are and what difficulty you're playing at really."

Left Behind, which represents the first single-player DLC Naughty Dog has ever created for any game, launches on February 14--Valentine's Day. It is included with the $20 The Last of Us DLC season pass and can purchased separately. The Last of Us was one of the few titles Sony demonstrated this month during CES 2014 running on the company's new PlayStation Now streaming service, which goes into beta later this month.

I looked on Mark's FB page and noticed the games he plays: Skyrim, GTA and the usual FPS games. No need to take him seriously.

I think we know enough about Ellie. If there needs to be a story DLC for a character, it's THIS BADASS:

While a story DLC is great, I feel like it's unnecessary to focus on Ellie's backstory since she's already a fully fleshed out character by the end of the game.

If there's any character that needs more development and would be awesome to play as, there can only be one person that comes to mind: TESS!

the game focuses too much on the story. I think too, that it is overall unoriginal and overrated. it has no replay value and it is more like a movie than a game. i have always the impression the ps gamers use it as a kind of their own "ocarina of time" or something like that. but that's wrong: only because the story is good, it's not a good game

it doesn't even have a single zombie in the game, Mr. Unemployed Cage. Go get a life then.

Any DLC for TLOU will be great whether it is a SP or MP. The story ended perfectly so I hope they do more work on the MP and add new MP modes. In my opinion this game has the best MP EVER!

It bugs me that ellie already told us what happened to her friend....then they release the dlc about that...I would have preferred tommys or tess. I find now that dlc is more focused on multiplayer than single... and unless your multiplqyer mad the season pass for this game like others isnt worth it

Was hoping for future DLC showing the events of Tommy's part of the story.

Oh this guy again. I swear you just wait for The Last of Us posts so you can flame the game. Do you have a personal vendetta against it or something? Do you dislike this game so much you have to flame it every chance you get? Have you honestly even played it?

I think it was pretty original. I haven't found a game that comes close to it, especially on harder modes.

I love The Last of Us! It's my favorite game..On the other hand I think the story ended perfectly, and that there's no need for more dlc. This story dlc that's coming out speaks about the events that took place before Ellie and Joel met.

Not being able to make a game doesn't mean he can't have or voice his opinion on them.

They could've released 2 if they didn't go the graphic novel route. But I'm more than happy with 1 single player story DLC.

A midquel with Tommy as the protagonist would have been 1,000,000x more interesting than this.

What was the point of this game's "season pass"?

I feel this DLC is really late after release. Its not really one of those games I feel I could get back into after not having played it for months on end....but I'll try.

Just a dude that hates hype behind a great game so he wants to seem all cool by going against it.

It'd be more interesting to see the events from the hunters' perspective. The Nolan North's character's.
