Tonight during Spike TV’s PS4 Launch Special, Naughty Dog revealed the first tease of what their upcoming single player DLC for The Last of Us will be.
Players will control Ellie in this prequel to what occurred prior to her meeting Joel in the story that we already know.
The PlayStation Blog notes that the DLC will launch in Early 2014. It will cost $14.99, or will be free for those who have purchased the Season Pass. The blog post, written by Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer, expands a bit on the subject matter of the DLC:
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.
For those who need more and more of the world of The Last of Us, you can check out the comic book miniseries that stars both Ellie and Riley and details how they first met.
