Why The Last of Us DLC Will Be More Playful Than the Campaign

Why The Last of Us DLC will be more playful than the campaign
Left Behind, the upcoming downloadable content for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, will be a bit more "playful" than the game that preceded it, actress Ashley Johnson said in an interview today on the PlayStation Blog.
Johnson played Ellie in The Last of Us and will reprise her role in the DLC. Announced last November, Left Behind will take place before the events of The Last of Us and star Ellie and her best friend Riley.
"It's definitely different," Johnson said. "It's a little bit more 'fun,' because you have two teenage girls going through a mall. It's kind of like a post-pandemic version of two teenage girls hanging out. Definitely not a normal hangout! It's very different — a little more playful."
The differences also apply to the DLC's environment and combat, she said.
"There's a bit of everything in there. You're really getting a new sense of the environment. You'll engage in combat that seems familiar from the original campaign, but there are some new touches and nuances, too."
Yaani King, the actress who plays Riley, echoed Johnson's tonal assessment in an interview with IGN.
"You're going to have a little more fun, I would say," King said. "One thing I can talk about is what you kind of see in the teaser trailer, the carousel scene … you get to be a little more playful, you get to see a side of Ellie, along with Riley, that is a bit more carefree, not so focused on the world that they live in and the reality in which they live in, but you get to explore a playful side of Ellie that you don't necessarily get to see. And you get to see her through Riley, who's kind of bringing these things out of her and loosening [her] up a bit."
The single-player DLC is scheduled to be released for PlayStation 3 early this year.
