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.

  • A new Uncharted and some DLC for The Last of Us. Thank you for the awesomeness Naughty Dog, keep it up!

  • Yes Yes YES!!! Sony and Naughty Dog = BEST GAMES EVER MADE!!!! :)

  • I can’t wait for the single player DLC for The Last of Us! I really have to get that Season Pass soon. Hopefully it doesn’t get removed by the time Black Friday is over.

    Also excited to see Uncharted on the PS4. After finishing The Last of Us, I just started playing the Uncharted games because I got them a few weeks ago and finished Drake’s Fortune recently. Now starting Among Thieves and really enjoying the franchise so far. Look forward to see more of it.

    • Glad to hear you’ve liked TLOU and going through our back catalog of Uncharted games! I hope you enjoy the rest of Uncharted 2 and all of Uncharted 3 too!

  • I hope that you guys give Uncharted a new twist to keep it fresh, but you guys made the night for me! Looking forward to both the DLC and Uncharted on PS4 :)

  • I think its really awesome you guys are taking the time to talk and reply to your fans… thumbs up to you guys :)

  • OMG!! guys your are amazing.
    just my two favorite games with my favorite character. things like that make me have much love for this industry.

    ND you are my hero.

  • My PSN account is on the US store, but my copy of the game (The Last of Us) is European since I relocated there, if I buy the season pass on the US store would it work on my copy of the game?

  • wow arne i’m impressed how nice you reply…..and often.

    BRAVO !!!

  • 106: UNFORTUNATELLY NOT…it’s region locked.

  • @106,

    you need the EU version of the Season Pass. the game may not be able to detect it if you bought it from US PSN.

  • I’m disappointed with the TLOU news. I really looking forward to playing as an entirely new character.

    Either way, I’m still hyped up for it! Keep up the good work guys.

  • Naughty Dog, one of the few studios I still have faith in. You just gave me a reason to buy a Playstation 4, bundle that bad boy up and I’m even more yours forever more.

    Also The Last of Us is a fantastic masterpiece and I long to set foot on new soil as our protagonist rids herself of the problems that lies in front of her. I think the best part is when you play Ellie and to watch her grow from rather harmless to a cold blooded killer.

    Uncharted is since the first installment of the series a force to be reckoned with and since then just reinforced it’s place as a fundament for a large base of the Playstation community. I wish that it could try it’s feet without numbering, simply Uncharted is a quality mark and also the previous adventures are independent enough to be played in any order really.

    I love what you’re doing ND ( is that okay with you? ) and have been doing that since Crash. You’ve got a fantastic crew going and I just wish that I someday can be a part of something near the greatness of what you guys achieved.

    All my love and kudos!

  • I honestly got chills when I saw the announcement for a new Uncharted. I had to keep checking to make sure this was real and not some cruel joke. Uncharted is one of my favorite gaming series ever, and this is coming from someone who has gamed since Atari. Hopefully Drake, Sully, Elena and the rest of the gang will return in epic fashion on the new console. To simply say, “I can’t wait” would be a major understatement.

    With Uncharted 4, and the other amazing gaming experiences coming to PS4 (such as The Witcher 3), I’m going to be one happy gamer over the next few years. However my social life might take a drastic hit. Eh, oh well. Not like I had much of one to begin with. Ha ha.

    Keep up the amazing work!

  • Treasure Island anyone? Im sensing it’s a pirates life for Uncharted.

  • Really hope that the new Uncharted will also feature Nathan Drake. Though I am worried that I am wrong.

    Luckily I have trust in you, Naughty Dog! I loved Jak and Daxter and they brought a brand new franchise, Uncharted, to life after that and now even brought us the Last of Us and we all love it ND! C:

    Just know that no matter what ya’ll do, your amazing work (both on story telling and especially on graphics) inspire me to finish my 3D visual artist educationa and become a 3D artist for games some day :D

  • Uncharted 2, 3 and The Last of Us are definitely in the top 5 of PS3 games for me. I’m just hoping you guys will be be able to outdo them with Uncharted 4 because that’s no easy task whatsoever.

    I really hope Nathan Drake is back as well and I hope that not adding a 4 doesn’t hurt its sales since it doesn’t seem to be a direct sequel, at least not yet.

  • I’m a 3D artist and a big part of that decision was thanks to your games Naughty Dog,. Hearing the Uncharted news on ps4 just made it clear as to why I’m a PlayStation fan, Thank you guys!!!! and cant wait for the last of us DLC!!!!

  • More games from Naughty Dogs is always good news~! Can’t wait!! Love all your work!! Good times… Your vision and your work have grown so much! From J&D to Uncharted then to TLOU! Just wow…

  • Super super excited! Cannot get enough of Uncharted or TLOU and so happy we’ve been given teasers for both! Thanks so much Naughty Dog! Thanks for working so hard on the games – you’ve given gamers characters and franchises that we can care so much about! I for one can’t wait to get to know more about Nate’s past in Uncharted and the friendship between Ellie and Riley! :D Thanks!

  • can you atleast tell me if the new uncharted will be available on the ps3 as well as ps4?? i dont wanna buy a new system just to keep playing my favorite franchise

  • This is good news!

    I got myself goosebumps when I learned that the next Uncharted was teased on PS4 launch event. I had a great experience playing the trilogy and found myself wanting for more Nathan Drake adventures.

    Not to mention the much awaited story DLC! I’ve been waiting for this!
    woooot!!!! ND I love you!

  • To be honest, I was kinda hoping for tge Story DLC to be focused on Ish but Im still excited to see Ellie again :D

  • @Arne Meyer

    Just like #102, I played TLOU first. I’m a backlogger, having finished quite a few games I just picked up TLOU last June and trusted the circulating good impression of ND because of Crash Team Racing (an old favorite) Uncharted, and to my surprise, TLOU became an instant favorite of mine.

    Then after TLOU, I found myself playing of all the Uncharted games, from 1 to 3. I didn’t skipped Uncharted 1 as I was curious and wanted to know what this game had to offer, that it became very successful. Well, I didn’t got enough of Drake and the rest is history, though I just played all of Uncharted just 2 months back.

    PS. also platinumed all of them.

  • South Africa and Madagascar. Can’t wait :)

  • Definitely made my day!! Jak and the Uncharted series are definitely amongst my favourites and The Last of Us was mindblowingly good, absolutely buzzing for this! Thank you! Keep up the great work!

  • I really thought you were going with Ish, but i’m glad anyway. I really think American Dreams has an abrupt ending because it’s really separated from the game. It would be still awesome to have something about Ish, I think it’s a strong character.

    And I know where you are going with Uncharted haha either it’s Drake’s nemesis talking or you are rebooting for next gen. But sadly I will be wating for Uncharted as I’m waiting for PS4, cause not everyone could afford it on day 1.

    You guys will always be an inspiration since I’m planning on indie game developement.

  • Just so everyone knows, the latin text surrounding the skull translates to:

    “Today you will be with me in Paradise”

    Also, the I St. Mary at the left of the skull is a neat hint… the name St. Mary is usually known for being Catholic, so there may be some religious tones here

  • Yay, good job as always ND, I am still crossing my fingers that Eddy Raja and Rika Raja make an appearance in this somewhere!

    I’ll be getting a PS4 when this comes out.

  • Uncharted 4 1080p 60fps we don’t want that 28fps of this gen.

  • OK now this is good news towards the PS4…although im still having a blast with my PS3 uncharted online…im sure by the time this game comes out for it ..i will be ready to move forward to take the next step on new gen. Anyways…this put the cherry on top of my friday..now all im waiting for is some news on my favorite amazing exclusive games..like GOD OF WAR, GRAND TURISMO, MODNATION RACERS, MOTORSTORM, STARHAWK and SOCOM..please SONY dont forget about SOCOM..this game can sell alot more PS4 systems..just make it like Battlefield in 3rd person and you just cant lose!!

  • Uncharted is Nathan Drake, it cant be Uncharted without him, that being said, i really hope this voice over is in fact the main villain back for revenge for something tied to ND. And that its also set after the events of U3, and can i also add while most ppl felt that u3 did not live up to the expectations of 1 and 2, i do believe nd has addressed this in the fact they set a release date for it a year in advance, something they i believe now regret. U seen it now with the last of us, gta5, the stick of truth, games getting pushed for more polish, i believe u3 could have used that extra time to tweek the game. And while im ranting, this TLOU dlc, i thought would have been the adventures of ish, so much was woven into the main story about him, letters being found, his underground home, i would have really enjoyed playing as him and living his story.

  • I look forward to the next Uncharted game but I really want a new Jak and Daxter game for the PS4!


  • finally a reason to buy a ps4.
    just a question can naughtydog do two game series at a time or does this mean the last of us is over.
    or does mean 2 of 1 and 1 of the other or similar.

  • First time EVER writing a comment in the forum. Uncharted is about the ONLY game my son will play. He has the entire series which he plays over and over and over. We have the PS3 broken into 4 separate accounts (one for each member of the family. He has gone as far as completing each game on 3 of the 4 accounts (not sure if he has on mine) . I will be picking up our PS4 after work today. He will be SO THRILLED to hear a 4th is coming out. Sad that we can not play the games on the PS4 though. Thank you for your outstanding workmanship and creativity!

  • Just on thing Dont take nathan drake out of the game please!

  • Just one thing Dont take nathan drake out of the game please!

  • Hello, it’s the coop-story-girl again :) thanks a lot for your answer, though it’s disappointing that this won’t work for the last of us…BUT what about a multiplayer split-screen like you did in Uncharted 3?

  • I’ll invest in a PS4 whenever uncharted releases. I don’t play shooters except for Uncharted.

    Thank you for posting. I was not going to devote time to watching Spike TV. I need to keep my brain cells.

  • I think you guys should maybe consider handing off Jak to another studio since I highly doubt you guys will ever work on another Jak. :( I mean it’s been almost 9 years since Jak 3 .It’s just that Jak fans have been waiting almost 9 years for the next Jak and Daxter from your guys.

    I mean I expected another Uncharted from you guys but I kind of was hoping for a new Jak and Daxter first, since we just got Uncharted 3 2 years ago. I thought Uncharted could maybe take a break while you make a new Jak and Daxter game and a new IP since you now have 2 development teams.

    Don’t get me wrong, I look forward to the next Uncharted, but me and many people have been patiently waiting an entire generation for the next Jak and Daxter. I mean, I am not mad that you guys for not doing it, I mean you guys tried, but maybe it would be best that you hand it off to another studio, like Senzaru Games, who now make the new Sly Cooper games.

    Anyways, I look forward to new games from you guys! :)

  • I literally almost cried when I saw the Uncharted reveal!!!! I was so TERRIFIED you guys would scrap Uncharted! :( The Uncharted series is my all time favorite franchise and Nathan Drake is my all time favorite fictional character! Yes I said fictional as in not just video games but movies, books, all of fiction! He is the greatest character ever made! I am SO glad you guys decided to continue Uncharted but I am BEGGING you to please not abandon Nathan Drake! As long as you guys continue to make Uncharted, I will buy EVERY SINGLE ONE! I am more excited for this game than I am for my Playstation 4 console itself which is right in front of me! On a side note, The Last Of Us is amazing too and I’m looking forward to sequels there too but no matter what, the Uncharted series can never be toppled by any other franchise :) you guys are the best in the business and without you guys, the gaming industry would be no good anymore to me. I love you Naughty Dog and I hope you never stop making Uncharted games with Nathan Drake!! Sorry for the long comment but I’m ridiculously passionate about Uncharted lol words cannot express how much I love the franchise :p

  • I have never been so excited over a DLC in my life until last nights reveal!!!! Are you kidding me!?!?! I can’t wait!!

  • OMG I’m so excited! The Last Of Us single player stuff sounds fantastic, and I hope to god Drake is in the new Uncharted. Naughty Dog is the best!!!

  • Awesome news….will be waiting for Uncharted to come out before buying PS4 (hopefully there will be an uncharted PS4 special edition).

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH NAUGHTY DOG YOU GUYS ARE SO AWESOME FOR MAKING ANOTHER UNCHARTED! Now I want to get a PS4 even though I got my Uncharted 3 GOTY Bundle almost a year ago. :(

  • are these ps4 exclusives or will they be available on the ps3 also?

  • Why?Why only for ps4 my favourite game…*crying*…


  • i like Uncharted so much,but think that will be available on PS3 after get released on PS4??????

  • Can those people who keep commenting that theyre through with the Uncharted series please shut the F#$%^ up go play Pac Man or so!!!
    ND please continue treating us with the best games and especially Uncharted! If you can deliver us the same quality as Uncharted 1,2 and 3 (and TLOU offcourse) well then you can go all the way up to Uncharted 10 if it’s up to me!
    I have deep respect and take my hat off for ND couse nothing comes even close in terms of storytelling, sphere and visuals!
    I know you guys have made a lot of people happy with your announcement today, just hope the new Uncharted will make it in time for holiday season 2014 but on the other hand take your time as long as you bring us another masterpiece, again!!
    Keep up the good work!!
    A great great fan!!
