You're right, that is indeed incorrect grammar.  Should be "circumstances," of course.

 

However, doesnt mean its not real. Have you ever read Eric-ND's blog posts and forum posts? That dude uses terrible grammar on a daily basis. Something tells me hes not the only culpruit in the office.

 

Still though, this is something to take into consideration..

Well, that seems like a negligible typo to me. There are WORSE typos in the UC3 MP web stat page.

The whole thing is typed terribly. Random commas and no comma between the words "dangerous," and "post-pandemic." There's no way they would let this slide. Also, the game already has had a well-typed synopsis since the day it was announced. Why would they make a new, inferior one?

lol I did know that he has English Degree. Goes to show you that degrees arent the end all be all.

 

Fair point B02, I dont have a good answer. However, dont stress too much over the lack of comma after dangerous--comma useage differs WIDELY between individuals.

 

Either way, Im glag its (probably) 4v4. 2 player co-op is encouraging too.

"Brought together by harsh circumstance" is a dependent clause that adds to the description of Joel and Ellie. Also "circumstance" does not need an "s". For all we know ONE thing brought Joel and Ellie together.

 

You should go back to school because you obviously need it.

If it was a single thing you would need to say "brought together by harsh circumstance." There's no denying that the sentence is gramatically incorrect.
