Don’t put away or sell that copy of The Last of Us just yet people as Naughty Dog has finally revealed the first piece of story-based DLC. By reveal I mean they’ve released a very short trailer and given some details about what we should expect.
Titled ‘Left Behind’, the DLC is a prequel to the event of the main game. You’ll play as Ellie, but don’t worry you’re not alone as the little heroine is joined by her friend Riley. Check out the official description of the DLC via the PlayStation Blog below.
She’s back! Ashley Johnson reprises her role as Ellie in The Last of Us: Left Behind single-player DLC. Left Behind takes place while Ellie is attending a military boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone, prior to meeting Joel and the events in the main campaign of The Last of Us.
In just a few short months since the release of The Last of Us, you have made it clear that Ellie has become one of your favorite characters in games. Today, we’re excited to confirm that you play as Ellie throughout the entirety of Left Behind.
Joining Ellie on this new adventure is Riley, her best friend and also a mentor of sorts at the military boarding school. Just as The Last of Us focused on the bond between Ellie and Joel, Left Behind explores the bond between Ellie and Riley through a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.
Sadly, there’s no release date for Left Behind at the moment, but we expect it to come out sometime in the early part of 2014. Exciting times! What are your thoughts? Looking forward to playing as Ellie? Have a look at the trailer below, and let us know what you think via the comments section below.
