Subscribe To Last Of Us: Left Behind Wins Writers Guild Award Updates
Naughty Dog has won yet another award for The Last Of Us. The survival horror adventure's Left Behind DLC was one of the winners at the Writers Guild of America awards over the weekend.
Left Behind won "Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing" during the ceremony. The DLC beat out Alien: Isolation, Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry and Assassin’s Creed: Unity for the honor.
Neil Druckmann, who wrote Left Behind along with Last of Us' main campaign, was on hand to accept the award. He shared a few pictures of the event over Twitter:
This year's award applies to games released between December 1st, 2013 and November 30th, 2014. In order to be eligible for the award, submitted games need separate writing credits. Furthermore, the writers must belong to or apply to the WGA Videogame Writers Caucus when the script is submitted. Those rules might be why your favorite game wasn't one of the nominees.
Left Behind is a prequel to the main campaign. Ellie is still living in the Boston quarantine zone. She and her best friend Riley decide to ditch class and explore a nearby mall. The adventure sheds new light on Ellie's relationship with Riley, who was first introduced in the American Dreams comic book mini-series.
You can purchase Left Behind for the PS3 version of Last of Us for $15. The DLC is also included for no additional charge with the PS4 remake, The Last Of Us: Remastered.
