Neil Druckmann has hinted at what to expect in the upcoming Left Behind DLC for the Playstation 3 exclusive video game, “The Last of Us.” In an interview with IGN on Jan. 12, the creative director disclosed that the development team will be going beyond their “comfort zone” with the single-player expansion.

He went on to mention that the Left Behind DLC includes extended scenarios where no combat is involved. Instead, Naughty Dog will try to keep players engage using “other mechanics.” You can take a look at a batch of “The Last of Us” screenshots in the slideshow located to the left of this article and his comments below:

With The Last of Us, we went past our comfort zone by including fewer combat encounters than we had in our previous games. And with our DLC, we’re trying to go even further past our comfort zone. There are a couple of long stretches in the DLC where there’s no combat, and we’re trying to keep you engaged in other mechanics. It’s going to be an interesting test for us to see how people will react to it.

The Left Behind DLC is expected to come out early this year. The expansion is set before the main scenario of the campaign as the story is going to focus on Ellie and Riley. The DLC can be downloaded for $14.99 on the Playstation Store. Alternatively, customers can purchase the season pass, which includes the campaign expansion along with several multiplayer DLC packs, for $19.99.

“The Last of Us” came out last year on June 14th. The survival-horror action-adventure video game was critically-acclaimed, winning many “Game of the Year” awards in 2013. Another development team at Naughty Dog is also working on the next “Uncharted” software product exclusively for the PS4.
