Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us


By now you’ve played The Last of Us and likely have learned more about Ellie’s backstory in The Last of Us: Left Behind. Maybe you’ve been wondering how they got Joel’s beard to look so good or why Ellie acts like she does? We’re pleased to say that Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us can provide you with some answers and that it’s now available to watch for free.

See below for the full, 90 minute, in-depth look at the making of The Last of Us throughout its development. Sony Computer Entertainment partnered with Area 5 to produce the video and it’s a thoughtful afterword to the game itself.

If YouTube watching isn’t your thing, we’re working on additional ways for you to view Grounded in its entirety so be on the lookout for those announcements.

If you haven’t purchased The Last of Us, The Last of Us: Left Behind or our Season Pass yet it’s best to do so before you dive into watching Grounded. As for our season pass holders, we’ll be adding even more value to your season pass in the coming weeks.

Be sure to check out Grounded and see how the game that’s won over 230 Game of Year awards, The Last of Us, was made.
