Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us Now Available on Amazon Instant Video

Eric Monacelli's Avatar Posted by Community Strategist, Naughty Dog

By now you’ve played The Last of Us and likely have learned more about Ellie’s backstory in The Last of Us: Left Behind. Maybe you’re been wondering how we got Joel’s beard to look so good or why Ellie acts like she does. We’re pleased to say that Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us can provide you with some answers and that it’s now available to watch for free.

Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us

If you live in North America, head over to Amazon Instant Video now and be the first, outside of our season pass holders, to watch the full, ninety minute, in-depth look at the making of The Last of Us throughout its development. We partnered with Area 5 to produce the video and it’s a thoughtful afterword to the game itself.

For those of you outside the US, Grounded will be coming to the PlayStation YouTube channel very soon. We’re working on additional ways for you to view Grounded in its entirety, so be on the lookout for those announcements.

In the next few days, we’ll also be providing a glimpse into the making of the Left Behind and some thoughts from the development team about what it was like to make our first-ever single-player downloadable chapter.

If you haven’t purchased The Last of Us, The Last of Us: Left Behind or our Season Pass yet, it’s best to do so before you dive into watching Grounded. As for our season pass holders, we’ll be adding even more value to your season pass in the coming weeks.

Be sure to check out Grounded and see how the game that’s won over 230 Game of Year awards, The Last of Us, was made.

I’ll be watching this tonight before going back and hopefully finishing Left Behind. I almost forgot how amazing TLoU is, but yeah, it really is that great.

Just a thought, I’d totally buy and play all over again a PS4 version.

Thank you Naughty Dog for crafting the greatest piece of entertainment I’ve ever had the unquantifiable pleasure of experiencing.

Neat, but when can we hear on a PS4 project from Naughty Dog? Hopefully by E3.

Thanks for this. Left Behind was awesome by the way. Appreciate the great single-player added content.

This is wonderful! Now let’s all convince Amazon to create a PS Vita app for Instant Video!

Figboy said:

Awesome! I already have the Season Pass, but I grabbed this anyway! Left Behind was fantastic, by the way! I’d love to see more single player DLC set in The Last of Us universe. Perhaps Ishmael’s story, or maybe something completely unrelated to the events surround Joel and Ellie’s adventures. Basically, I just want more of The Last of Us universe, and I’ll gladly buy all the DLC. It’s a franchise with excellent story potential beyond our two original protagonists.

This video, Grounded, was just another reason for me to Pre-Order The Last of Us Season Pass. It’s a must see to the entire PlayStation Nation! Plus, owning the Season Pass is great! By far, hands down, the best bang for your buck when it comes to great content in what is known as the Best PS3 game. Thank you so much SCEA and Naughty Dog!

Downloading now to my iPad Air, thank you SO much for making this available. I really wanted to watch this, but am not a big multiplayer guy, so buying the season pass seemed wasteful. I will happily get Left Behind now and watch this in the subway on the way how. Thanks again!

A million props to Area 5! They are hands down the best video production on the west coast! They singlehandedly got me back into games with their CO-OP show and is why I bought a PS3. Use them for EVERYTHING! They make video magic!

Best PS3 game I’ve played and one of my top 5 games of all time…. excited that season pass ppl will be getting even more “in the coming weeks” …is the next online DLC coming or is it some other update / patch?? I really want (NEED!) more maps for online! 4vs4 with 2 SMART teams is awesome tactical fun.

What about Canadian customers? Where can I get the documentary? I won’t buy the Season Pass because I already bought Left Behind and I’m not into the multiplayer mode. Thanks! :)

Oops! Sorry, I didn’t read down to the end… ;)

    Sorry that was a misunderstanding with Amazon. Just NA for now. We’ll have it available for others in all regions on other channels shortly.

Canadian customers screwed again!
It’s sad that companies even consider things like where you live when they try to sell things on the internet. Last time I checked, the goal of a business was to make money, so refusing to sell a product because someone lives in a country other than the good old USA, is just stupid and very bad business. I sometimes wonder if Americans even realize the rest of the world even exists…Like daniel3ub said, NO WONDER PEOPLE PIRATE STUFF, COMPANIES WON’T LET THEM LEGITIMATELY BUY IT!!

That was a couple and utter pointless ending to your comment. Just saying.

Opps got stuck in my thinking, that’s why I don’t type at night usually lol.
But what I meant to say was “That was a pointless ending to what you had to say”.. it wasn’t very smart to put on a open-blog. Basically. lol

Stuck on the regional restriction, sigh. Players outside US also like this game…hope there will be restriction-free version of this clip.

Please keep making these behind the scenes videos, I missed it greatly in Uncharted 3. I love to see how the soup is made at ND! :)

Also, Left Behind was amazing! best “expansion” I’ve purchased ever.

I do have the Season Pass, is it under Extras in the Main Menu?

I have played my fare share of games and TLoU is my favorite (which in my opinion should have won the VGA game of the year) nothing doesn’t even come close not even Game of the year GTA 5 which is a very good game. If ND does make a second one don’t rush it make as good as the first one.
