The Last of US: Left Behind To Be Launched As Standalone Release
Naughty Dog has decided to offer The Last of Us: Left Behind as a stand alone digital download. You can get this release on May 12th for only $9.99. But what if you also want to single player mode once you’re done with Left Behind?
After buying The Last of Us: Left Behind, you’ll be able to to upgrade your copy of the game to include the single player offline mode (along with the Treacherous Territories map pack) for an additional $29.99. Left Behind will also include a trial version of the new Factions multiplayer mode, so if you want to get that you pay an additional $9.99. And if you want all of the extra content, you can upgrade Left Behind to unlock the full single player mode, the Treacherous Territories map pack AND the full Factions multiplayer mode for an additional $39.99.
Arne Meyer from Naughty Dog, had this to say:
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.
