The Last of Us Single Player DLC is “a Side Story,” First Draft of the Campaign Included a Dog

After talking about the decision to split Naughty Dog into two teams following Uncharted 2, Neil talked about how they “made too big of game” with The Last of Us, which caused them to not only delay the release date into June, but also borrow “a bunch of people” from the other team to help wrap up production once Uncharted 3 was finished. - PSLS

US8F2002d ago (Edited 2002d ago )

GTA V... Michael's Dog. I'm all for non human companions, humans can be boring sometimes.

Transporter472002d ago

Dead to Rights always had a main Dog.

yewles12002d ago

"what's next? lol"

A new Shinobi Shadow Dancer sequel?...

zep2002d ago

Unfortunately, it seems Heihachi is the only one badass enough to have a bear as a friend.

For me, I'm still waiting for the day when we finally have Velociraptors (the Jurassic Park kind) as partners. They could be your smart AI partners. They're able to hide really well, and when they see an enemy, RAR!! It runs straight into the enemy and bites its head off!

grailly2002d ago

the last guardian, hopefully.

My favorite playthrough of Dragon Age Origins (of the 5 full runs I did), was the run I called "Just Me and My Dog". Nightmare run, just me (Arcane Warrior Mage) and my Mabari named Bitey. I was proud of Bitey to survive the final battle with the Archdemon. Unfortunately I had to sacrifice myself, but since then I've hoped that one of the future Dragon Age games would be based on the further adventures of Bitey.

belac092002d ago

Final Fantasy 6 had a dog.

badz1492002d ago (Edited 2002d ago )

I want cats, damn it! not like the Kat's one but something like the real one. purrr...

2002d ago

Dogs > Cats for games. Try to give your cat an order or call for its help when you are in trouble... That's right, it'll look you in the eyes, complete ignore your needs and keep going with whatever it was up to.

stage882002d ago

Cannot wait for the DLC. I am already on my 3rd play through. I just can't get enough of this fantastic game!

Prophet1122001d ago

Fable 2 or 3(can't remember which one) had a dog.

THeHoboAcrossYourSt2000d ago

Just like Bow and Arrows. I mean what's the big deal. Assassin's Creed 3 has one, Crysis 3 has one, Tomb Raider has one, Far Cry 3 has one, The Last Of Us. Almost every game has a Bow and Arrow.

Megatron3162002d ago

like crysis says, it's the only weapon every civilization could craft any location any time its the perfect weapon

YodaCracker2002d ago

Please Rockstar, give me a bow and arrow to hunt in GTA V!

baodeus2002d ago

He'll probably get thrown in the pot at the end due to lack of food resource. I'll bet people will flip, but hey, that keeping it reals

ElitaStorm2002d ago (Edited 2002d ago )

on the Thief live coverage, the guys says that they have next-gen dogs in the game lol

play this from 10:08 and you will lol hard

omi25p2002d ago

I hope its about Ishi.


Ishi is the guy in the sewers. You read all about his little underground society and what happens to some of them. But all we know is that he and 4 others escaped after the infected broke in.

trenso12002d ago

i think he might have died with all the infected in the town, you see towards the end of that section, plus there is a drawing of ish and some kids dad, and they are wearing police vests and there are two clickers in one room wearing the same clothing, and are the only two in the sewers wearing that type of clothing. Leading me to believe he is dead or turned into clicker.



LightSamus2001d ago

By that logic we need a game starring a talking dog which is voiced by Troy Baker.

Interesting. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Foolsjoker2002d ago

That comment is in Uncharted territory.

GribbleGrunger2002d ago (Edited 2002d ago )

He's not going to be The Last Of Us to say that.

lnvisibleMan2002d ago

You need to get your 'Cortex' checked out.

A dog would've Jakked the game up to new heights.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry....(*walks out*)

GribbleGrunger2002d ago (Edited 2002d ago )

Theres a lot of ways this could go


It could show Tommy during the time he wasn't with Joel

Joel during the 20 years, maybe some parts after his daughter was killed

More on Ellie when she was taking care of Joel during the rest of Fall/Winter

Marlene's trip with the Fireflies to the hospital

Bill during the time he was with his partner and how he became a little paranoid, less trustworthy, ended up talking to himself etc

A DLC focusing on Henry and Sams backstory

The years Joel was with Tess

Tess before she met Joel starting from the outbreak to when she first met him

I could go on and this was in ONE game. I'd rather them do these short stories as DLC and spin off's then stretch them out as full retail sequels. I really want the Last of Us 2 to focus on the lie Joel told Ellie in the end.

Did anyone see the UK concept art ND did if the game was set in England, they looked fantastic. It would be great if they had to work there way through out England...from London, to Manchester, Leeds, Blackpool, Newcastle then finally Glasgow.

ginsunuva2002d ago (Edited 2002d ago )

Or Ellie's story before she met Joel.

Even though that's what the comic's about.

TrendyGamers2002d ago

Hadn't thought of Tommy being a choice. Interesting.

trenso12002d ago

I'd much rather see joel and tommy seeing them survive up until the point where the decided to part ways.

USMC_POLICE2002d ago

I don't feel it will be half assed like the dog in cod.
