Considered to be one of the best games of 2013, The Last of Us was revered for its expert storytelling and brutal gameplay. As one of the stand-out PS3 exclusives, The Last of Us also received a perfect score of 100 percent in Gaming Illustrated’s review. Though it hasn’t been confirmed, Left Behind is assumed to be the only piece of single-player The Last of Us will receive.
To play Left Behind, players will have to own The Last of Us as the DLC is not a standalone release.
