Uncharted on PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC Revealed

This has been an incredible week at Naughty Dog as we were getting ready for two major reveals – both of which blew up the Spike TV PS4 All Access launch extravaganza.

We premiered our first teaser trailer for The Last of Us: Left Behind, a single-player DLC campaign coming early next year. But we weren’t done with announcements quite yet; we had one more treat for our fans – a teaser video that confirms we are working on an Uncharted game on the PlayStation 4 system!

Check out teaser trailer for The Last of Us: Left Behind

Check out the teaser for Uncharted – voiced by a mysterious character-– below.

We also provided a little bit more information about both our announcements during the Spike TV PS4 All Access show, which we’ve posting below. Get excited!

Naughty Dog Reveal, 02

The Last of Us: Left Behind is Naughty Dog’s first ever single-player DLC. BruceNeil, and the rest of the team are getting close to wrapping work on this new campaign, which will meet the quality and gameplay what you’ve come to expect with The Last of Us, along with a few surprises. 

She’s back! Ashley Johnson reprises her role as Ellie in The Last of Us: Left Behind single-player DLC. Left Behind takes place while Ellie is attending a military boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone, prior to meeting Joel and the events in the main campaign of The Last of Us.

In just a few short months since the release of The Last of Us, you have made it clear that Ellie has become one of your favorite characters in games. Today, we’re excited to confirm that you play as Ellie throughout the entirety of Left Behind.

Joining Ellie on this new adventure is Riley, her best friend and also a mentor of sorts at the military boarding school. Just as The Last of Us focused on the bond between Ellie and Joel, Left Behind explores the bond between Ellie and Riley through a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.

Bringing Riley to life through our performance capture process is the talented Yaani King, who we had the pleasure of working with on the DLC.

If you just can’t wait until the DLC drops to get more of The Last of Us, go out immediately and read the Dark Horse comic series, The Last of Us: American Dreams – which is conveniently available in the recently released paperback collection. I cannot recommend this series enough and it’s even more relevant now, as in the comic you will learn more about how Ellie and Riley first became friends, giving you even more insight into Ellie’s story in The Last of Us universe. And it’s also just plain great!

The Last of Us: Left Behind will be releasing in early 2014 – we will announce a specific date as soon as we iron out all the details. The awesome news is that Left Behind is included in the The Last of Us Season Pass, which also includes a ton of multiplayer DLC, and is the best deal you can get for all the DLC content we’ve planned to release – over 75% worth of savings compared to buying all the DLC separately. If you’re only interested in the single-player DLC, you can pre-order it starting November 19 on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.

We’ve also got the polaroid image for The Last of Us: Left Behind in convenient wallpaper sizes. Get them now!

Naughty Dog Reveal, 01

We have great news for all our Uncharted fans – Amy, Justin, and the team are hard at work on an amazing new installment of the Uncharted series to be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 system. Our goal is to continue what we’ve done in previous console generations and once again deliver the best in storytelling, performance capture, technical innovation and graphics on the PS4. We can confirm that the voiceover is performed by Todd Stashwick and he will play a character in the game.

There isn’t much more we can say right now about The Last of Us: Left Behind and even less about our Uncharted project, but feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below. Believe me – we can’t wait to shed more light on both of these projects to our fans.

    Hell yea to both the DLC and Uncharted! I just hope Drake is back with Nolan North as the voice actor please!

    • Arne Meyer

      We’re so excited that all this is finally out there. We can’t wait to spill more details on our Uncharted, but not yet!

  • Very exciting, getting my PS4 in about three hours. Uncharted will be awesome.

  • H1DD3N_SHADOW

    YES. UNCHARTED IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE VIDEO GAME FRANCHISE .
    THE LAST OF US WAS A MASTERPIECE THAT I BEAT FOUR TIMES AND PLATINUMED

    I LOVE YOU NAUGHTY DOG!!!!!

  • Dark_Usurper

    Can’t wait!

  • Thank you, Naughty Dog! Uncahrted is my favorite franchise ever.

    Any chance we might get a longer trailer at the VGAs? ;)

  • *Head explodes*

    • Arne Meyer

      Thankfully *we* didn’t explode trying to hold all this news secret for so long!

  • Double whammy! This is very exciting news.

  • SweetReLeaf

    Is the whole DLC Ellie? I guess I’m asking too much, but I hope so. For some reason I played so much better with her than Joel in the campaign. Never missed a shot with her hahah

    • Arne Meyer

      Well, we do say that you play through the whole DLC as Ellie.

  • Does Left Behind take place after the comic?

    • Arne Meyer

      Yes, the comic introduces Ellie and Riley and how they get to know each other. The DLC explores their bond further.

  • F**** YES!!! uncharted on ps4, double F*** yes!! when they announce god of war for ps4 >_<

  • Pikmologist

    This makes me so happy. I’m such a huge Naughty Dog fan. I love the Uncharted series. I can’t wait to find out more information on this game. It just kills me I can;t get a PS4 right now, I have the money, but I can’t find one anywhere. I work tomorrow, so they will be sold out before I can get one, I will get a PS4 soon, though! UNCHARTED FOR PS4! KNOWING THIS IS INSANE AND I CAN’T WAIT!

    • Arne Meyer

      I hope you find a console out there! I’m sure you will get one eventually. We can’t wait to reveal more either! Thanks for being such an awesome fan.

  • ClutchFactor8

    VERY dissapointed. Been waiting for a new Jak game since 2004. Ive been waiting and waiting, Uncharted fans are really spoiled. I’m done…

    • Arne Meyer

      Awww, sorry to hear that. We’re big fans of Jak as well and we tried to make a new game on the PS3 – but that team ultimately made The Last of Us. Can’t say we didn’t try… you should try our other games perhaps. We think there’s still a lot of that Naughty Dog magic in those too.

  • I was really holding out for Jak 4, but I can’t complain about another Uncharted. Everything you guys do is great.

    • Arne Meyer

      I’m glad you still like us. We did look into doing a Jak 4 with Bruce and Neil and the team who went on to make The Last of Us. There’s a couple of articles here and there talking about why we decided to not do another Jak, along with some concept art. We tried!

  • Another Uncharted game. Yeah!!! Alright, now you’ve given me a reason to buy a PS4. ;-)

  • Hay hay Warhol what oooooh oooooo. Haaaaaa that’s the good stuff. Hay what’s all this white sticky stuff on my hands? Lol

  • TheGuardianFID

    Sweeeeeeeeeet, SOLD!!! 8)

  • justanotherblue

    HOLY CRAP YES. I was just recently wishing we’d hear about a new Uncharted game in the works. And PIRATES?!

    I am SO ON BOARD.

  • UNCHARTED PS4 I cried so hard!!!! This may be an origin story of Uncharted for PS4, meaning Francis Drake anyone???? I can’t express how happy I am. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH NAUGHTY DOG!

  • Shadow-Man_4

    I’m not going to get a PS4 until you ship the PS4 Uncharted bundle. Better hurry up and take my money before I change my mind. ;)

    Lemme pre-order, and give us some incentive to do so! I moved to Canada now and I can pre-order. Please release more information soon.

    Naughty Dog. <3

    • Arne Meyer

      I think you can preorder Uncharted already from some retailers, we were working on getting that setup for someone exactly like you. Check the usual retail spots.

  • StealthReborn--

    Hey Arne!

    Any chance of there being a double parts weekend for The Last of Us? :D

    • Arne Meyer

      Hey now! That’s not on topic! Kidding — we’re focused on putting out more DLC content like the hats for our MP players and, obviously, working on patches and updates. So, no plans at the moment. Sorry.

  • DecadanceFantasy

    The PS4 launch event was awesome! The DLC for the Last of Us looks great, and of course Uncharted is looking stellar. That map looked cool and foreboding all at the same time.

  • All of my yes.

  • BlaqMagiq24

    Naughty Dog dropping megatons. I knw you’re going to blow us away with Uncharted on PS4.

  • dragon_unleashed

    Really really excited.. As I was when I saw the hint in the released European PS4 Launch trailer… With the store, Drake’s Antiques…
    Made a post of it on 4thePlayers.nl and thought this n awesome, this could stir things up, then a few hours later you post the Uncharted teaser…

    Couldn’t you have waited at least a day hahaha ha

    Just kidding really excited for it though, when will the next announcements around Uncharted be made.. Around Christmas and release November next year? Hehe

    Make it so it will blow peeps away.. You made it hard for yourselves by making high quality games.. The stakes are high, but Guerrilla Game made it possible, to top an awesome game and so can you!

    • Arne Meyer

      Well, the European PS4 trailer had references to some games in it as a celebration to all what PlayStation has done — obviously Uncharted has a place, along with The Last of Us. I think we spotted a Crash silhouette in one of the street signs too. It was just too perfect (and entirely by coincidence) that the two videos came out so close to each other! We’ll do our best to blow you away!

  • Cant wait for both! Iv played everything you guys made since you never failed me. Best company ever.

    • Arne Meyer

      Everything? That’s impressive. Glad you think so highly of us!

  • insano_jaco

    I want The Last Of Us multiplayer and this DLC on my PS4, who I need to talk to make it happen?

    • Arne Meyer

      @yosp? Don’t tell him I sent you. Let him know what you want to see. ;)

  • Basing the DLC off the comic is a bit safer than I was hoping for, since we know how it starts (Comic) and we know how it ends (mentioned by Ellie in the game) but I’m still really excited to play it.

    • Arne Meyer

      Ah, but just because you know what came before and what comes after, doesn’t mean the DLC won’t have some great story elements and even some surprises. It’s pretty darn swell when I last played a build here at the studio…

  • ps_n_blog_ac

    Can’t wait!

    As for TLOU i would really love for you guys to make a Joel and Tess DLC…. Tess is my favorite character :3 and i would really love to see how Tess and Joel have met each other. ( Judging by the art work from the artbook it was a rocky start XD)

    !!!Uncharted!!!! <3

    • Arne Meyer

      We’ll let the team know! I think we’ve started building a great fictional universe with lots of interesting characters, relationships, and potential in The Last of Us.

  • Im disappointed to be honest. Uncharted was the last game i wanted from you guys because the last one left such a bad taste in mouth.( worst one in the series imo)

    I was really hoping for u guys to keep ur tradition and give us a new ip.

    Or atleast make jak 4

    I feel like you guys are losing some of your creativity. Making ultra realistic movie like linear games on after another, then when u have a chance to do something completely new, you go back to something you’ve already done.

    What happen to making foreign worlds and characters that inspired wonder and creativity?

  • SeekAndDestroy80

    WOOOOO LOVE IT!!!! :) Uncharted is my favorite Franchise. Cant wait to hear more about it!! Also cant wait to play The Last of us DLC :)

  • WheelchairMan1

    Naughty dog you’re just amazing. you never cease to amaze me a new Uncharted super excited keep up the great work.

  • WAIT

    The Last of Us DLC is free with the Season Pass RIGTH?..
    Because at the end of the trailer says “Reserve” and “Bonus material” ..

    BTW I Love Uncharted, I’m getting a PS4 for Infamous SS and Uncharted :)

    • Arne Meyer

      Yes, The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC *IS* included in the Season Pass.

  • CIausSanAndreas

    Left Behind, ¡Come to me! ¿2013 or 2014? :O
    UNCHARTED on PlayStation 4, oh my God…

  • PlayingwithFireX

    Can’t wait for more info on Uncharted PS4, Francis Drake’s story?

    • Arne Meyer

      We’re not saying anymore for a while. We’re going to let this mystery linger for a while. :)

  • Dear Naughty Dog: Shut Up and take My Money
    (Pitches $60 at Computer Screen)

  • Da_Almighty_Guy

    Naughty Dog does it again.

    Expect Naughty Paws 3.0 you guys. I’ll be sure to get right on it when Uncharted gets released. :)

    • Arne Meyer

      Haha. Thanks for being so great for Naughty Paws to begin with. We really need to get more Dogs to play with you all.

  • PharmBoY044

    Yes! I love Uncharted. I just hope this isn’t a reboot. We want Nathan Drake to come back.

  • Naughty Dog. Thank you, just.. thank you!!!

  • Shadow-Man_4

    You mean some stores already offer pre-orders for Uncharted PS4? I want to get a PS4 bundled with that.

    • Arne Meyer

      Yes, you can find Uncharted and The Last of Us: Left Behind available for pre-order in some retailers.

  • So excited! Thank you Naughty Dog!

  • TheCraZyCloWn

    SHUT UP…WHEN CAN I PREORDER UNCHARTED :) COME ON BESTBUY STEP IT UP

  • Obviously Drake is back! I’m just hope Sony and Naughty Dog will use dedicated servers for Uncharted 4 multiplayer! I love Uncharted multiplayer but hate the lag and the glitches and the messed up leaderboard! Do us a favor and give us dedicated servers! I’ll be paying for the Plus pass, so improve the infrastructure!!! So, glad Drake is back!!!

  • angelspawn77

    I am super excited for both of the announcements, I got so freaking excited when I saw Uncharted! Please tell me that Nathan Drake is back! I know ND likes to start new franchises on new consoles, but I hope Uncharted continues with Nathan Drake on the PS4. I have a feeling that we may have a different main character on our hands though….hope I’m wrong.

  • I’m so excited, I knew an Uncharted game would be coming to the PS4 naturally but to have it officially announced is so gratifying :)

  • Is the protagonist Francis Drake? Or can we at least play as him? I know you cannot answer that but it just would be so great if a game would alternate between Nathan and Francis.

    • Arne Meyer

      But you know I can’t answer! Why do you do this to me. :) Come back later sometime, when we can reveal more info.

  • LuiSpartanMIMIMI

    I love you Naughty Dog!

    Please keep you word about not doing any Uncharted without Nolan North/Nathan Drake. Nate is the face of PlayStation!

  • ClutchFactor8

    Its fine if you guys cant make a new jak, but still. I’m tired of these colorless games. I want a game with a vibrant world. Just like the good old ps2 platformer days.

    • Arne Meyer

      I see. Well, I think we’ve made some really colorful worlds with both Uncharted and The Last of Us. They have their own unique elements of course — TLOU was a bit dark, but there was some great bright colors, the sunset lighting in Bill’s Town I always thought was amazing. The Uncharted games did that too — with the different environments and colorful cities. But we’ll keep that in mind as we build new worlds on a new platform, thanks for letting us know what you like.

  • NaughtyDog is just so godlike it’s crazy. Just like Uncharted 1,2 and 3 and The Last Of Us I can already tell that the new Uncharted will be groundbreaking. They never disappoint.

  • angelspawn77

    Oh and I hope Uncharted 4 releases sometime next year! If it does, I know it will be late next year, probably November, but the fact that no actual footage was shown makes me think that maybe it will be an early 2015 release, say it isn’t so ND! I want this game ASAP! ND has shown trailers at the Spike VGAs, hopefully we can see a little more? Maybe some characters or environments? I am just so excited to see what this game looks like, if Uncharted 2 and 3 looked amazing last gen, I cannot imagine what Uncharted 4 is gonna look like on PS4.

  • Notorious-_-47

    I need to know one thing that I’m sure you can answer positively. What is the trailer about? I’m bad at seeing things so id like you to describe it to me.
