  • it’s nice to see it as a standalone download but i played the original so i won’t be getting it . nice option though

  • DO NOT PLAY Left Behind without first completing The Last of Us.
    It takes place chronologically before TLOU, yes, but it also takes place during TLOU and reveals some pretty big story information. Unless you’re okay with huge spoilers and broken storytelling, play The Last of Us before you play Left Behind.

  • This is weird. Unless it has separate trophies I see very little reason for most people to buy it.

      Mostly for people who haven’t played yet but also for those who want to play again.

  • I still have not played this game though I have watched hundreds of videos on it. I do not like survival horror and crafting. I have watched all the cutscenes, commentaries, reviews, and analysis of it. It is really an awesome game. I game for story and experience not for skill or completion. Please give Grant Voegtle a job. He is doing a great job keeping this game alive and giving new insights. I loved his video on how the last of us changed his life and I am watching his episodic cinematic playthrough. You should edit his episodic and put it on Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube. I also really love SolePorpoise analysis too. I am tempted on just buying the game digitally to support you guys even though I won’t play it.

  • Im buying this as i didnt get the chance to buy the DLC on PS3

  • Sony, when are you going to fix the Vitas that you broke with the 3.5 firmware update?

  • davionwalker22

    Do I have to own The CD to play this DLC on ps4?

  • death_nation100

    Seeriously their nothing left to spoil about this game even if you only played the original .

  • ND…what are you trying to pull with that image?

  • @3 – People who didn’t play the DLC on ps3 and don’t want to buy the remaster can simply buy this to experience it on ps4. Alternatives are never a bad thing.

  • killercroc119

    It’s says $10 on here but in the store it’s $15. What’s up with that

  • killercroc119

    Nvm Canadian pricing bites me in the ass once again

    • Eric Monacelli
      Eric Monacelli

      Yeah, sorry, every region determines their own pricing.

  • PhantomOranges

    Good game, my only problem is we all know that the reason that it is now split is so that it can now be given out on ps+

  • Gamerzlimited

    So I can just buy this stand alone on PS4 and I’ll be able to play the multiplayer for that system? If so, it’s worth it for me as I already own the full game on PS3 and just wanted to play multiplayer on next gen.

      You’ll have a free trial of MP. You can upgrade to the full version.

  • If you don’t want to play it don’t play it. It’s a game. You won’t be missed. It is however one of the best games Sony has going for it, so don’t play it. Just don’t comment on it. That’s a little elementary.

  • Great release. Does it have a separate trophy list from the DLC version of Left Behind?
