Naughty Dog announced today that downloadable content for The Last of Us, the studio's first ever single-player DLC, will be coming in early 2014.
In the brief teaser trailer for The Last of Us: Left Behind, we see Ellie and her teenage friend Riley discover a merry-go-round that appears to have been abandoned. Riley is a character that appears in The Last of Us: American Dreams comic series from Dark Horse. Where American Dreams explains how the two children first met, the DLC will explore their bond.
The DLC takes place while Ellie is attending a military boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone, prior to meeting Joel and the events of The Last of Us, according to a post on the PlayStation blog. The DLC will focus on the bond between Ellie and Riley "through a series of events that will forever change both of their lives." Gamers will be playing as Ellie throughout the DLC campaign.
Left Behind will be part of The Last of Us Season Pass, according to the blog post. The DLC can also be pre-ordered starting Nov. 19 on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.
The Last of Us launched as a PlayStation 3 exclusive earlier this year. The reveal video for the DLC can be viewed below.
