After months of teasing new DLC content for its action-horror masterpiece, Naughty Dog has finally revealed the upcoming single-player expansion for The Last of Us, which goes under the alias Left Behind. The story will follow Ellie and her friend Riley, a character introduced in the American Dreams comic series created by Dark Horse.
Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer wrote a post on the PlayStation Blog touching on the expansion’s subject matter:
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.
Left Behind will hit the PS3 this Spring for $15. Watch the reveal trailer below.
