The Last Of Us DLC Left Behind Going Standalone This Month

This month fans will be able to download the much-loved DLC of the Last Of Us.

Nuaghty Dog’s smash hit The Last Of Us‘ DLC called Left Behind is gearing up to be released as a standalone game this month.

This DLC will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 via the PS Store and will come with a two-hour demo of the Factions multiplayer.

A post on the Naughty Dog website said the following:

“If you haven’t had a chance yet to check out The Last of Us, this is a nicely priced gateway to checking out the world and characters so many people (and critics loved). While part of the story of Left Behind takes place during the main narrative arc of The Last of Us, I think some of the best and most touching moments of any game in recent memory occur during the prequel segments, as we follow Ellie and Riley as they sneak out of boarding school to visit an abandoned mall, getting one final chance to enjoy their friendship before Riley leaves to join the Fireflies.”

The Last Of Us: Left Behind is developed by Naughty Dog and will be available as a standalone download on May 12th for $9.99.

Part 2 Of Black Mesa Half-Life Remake Coming Soon?

Something form the Half-Life universe is coming very soon, though signs are pointing to the next part of the Black Mesa fan remake project.

A source engine remake of Half-Life called Black Mesa has been in the works forever, though we may be very close to its release.

The first part came out in 2012, though now the Black mesa website is redirecting visitors to an external countdown timer. This timer is pointing to 10:47 on May 5th, though a time zone is not indicated.

These fan remake projects that eventually combined to form Black Mesa were first revealed in 2004, just to give you a bit of context of just long these things have been in the works.

Of course, this is to be expected as the people who are working on this game are simply a group of volunteers doing this in their spare time. Tackling a series as big as Half-Life is no small task, especially considering how demanding its loyal fans are.
