Currently going back through TLoU again (Survivor NG+) and I love it so much, such an awesome game. I will buy the shit out of the single player DLC. And the PS4 version too, its coming right, right? :)

Never bought DLC on my PS3. But this will make me break that streak.

After reading the comics, I guessed this was the direction they would go, and I'm excited as hell. The different perspective and the lack of Joel means there's going to be completely new environments, unique npc interactions, and different approaches/flow to combat and gameplay. I really hope there's a glimpse into actual school life in a quarantine zone and things that they showed in the comics. Couldn't be more excited.

True that. I hate all those hollywood-american stereotypes, be it in movies or in games. I have no connection with that shit.

Ah I was just messing around guys. There is a stereotype that teenage girls, when they get together, are the most annoying entity on earth.

Very true, playing the main game and comparing the voices of both Ellie and Sarah is like night and day.

It will. What it means is that it's not a separate application but something you boot up from the main game and under its license.

I'm very excited about this and it will be the first DLC I buy.

Do you think there's a possibility they will surprise us with a glimpse of what happens after the main story?

You know, will Ellie ever find out that Joel lied?
I'm still not sure if I'd like that. Some part of the magic of the game is that you can make you're own story at the end of what happens next...

This takes place before the events of the main game, so no. Besides, Ellie already knows that Joel lied to her. The core of her "okay" isn't that she doesn't know whether he's lying, it's that she accepts Joel's lie.

maybe not. More likely they are simply assuming knowledge of what happens in the main game, and referencing those in the prequel.

played and loved TLoU, but traded in now. I'd rather not rebuy for this but it is tempting. Come on PS4 version (but doesn't ND working on this DLC reduce the likelihood of a PS4 port soon?)

Amazing how many people fail to realize this, that's what makes the ending so great.

Not necessarily.

As with (all?) the HD collections, it's probably going to be outsourced if they do decide to make it for PS4. Naughty Dog didn't make Jak & Daxter HD collection either.

There is new music happening yes! Itís equally incredible.

Whatís the estimated play time for this DLC? Iím wondering how many hours Iíll get out of this.
Can I still buy the season pass? I donít see it in the store but Iím gonna start searching again.

The season pass is still available globally. Check the PS Store in your region.

Ellie returns as new light is shed on her relationship with Riley, her best friend from the military boarding school they both grew up in. After inexplicably disappearing for weeks, Riley reemerges in Ellieís life with a surprising revelation. The two sneak out of their school for the last time, leading to a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.

Naughty Dog continues to explore the themes of survival, loyalty, and love in their first ever single player DLC with The Last of Us: Left Behind.

I know most implying a possible relation between Valentine's Day release date and the relationship between the two were only half-serious, but this is getting really intriguing.

I don't think there will be anymore single player DLC after this. They probably want to start on their next project.
