We take advantage of the broadcast last Monday of episode 7 of The Last of Us, adapted from Left Behind, to replay this DLC live on Numerama’s Twitch channel. And in realistic mode, of course!
The adaptation of The Last of Us is a huge success, at the start of 2023, which appeals to both game players and those starting out with the series. The latest episode, Left Behind, adapts the DLC of the same name, released in 2014.
There’s no better time to replay this additional content featuring Riley and Ellie. Numerama invites you to (re)discover Left Behind this Wednesday, at 13h, on our Twitch channel. We will take the opportunity to compare the game and its adaptation – the differences and commonalities.
To add to the adventure, we will put Left Behind in “realistic” mode, the hardest difficulty in the game – without listening mode or ATH and with few resources available.
A faithful, but emancipated adaptation
The HBO adaptation is a masterpiece, as detailed in our Season 1 review. in episode 6. But it also emancipates, offering new characters, fewer infected, and some rewrites. The adaptation of Left Behind is thus quite refined, but faithful to the events linking Riley and Ellie.
