The Last of Us: Left Behind Story DLC Trailer Teases Ellie’s Life Before Joel
Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells took to the stage on the PS4 All Access Event to unveil the first trailer for Left Behind, which will serve as a prequel to the main game. In this DLC, players will find out what Ellie’s life was like before her adventures with Joel, as she explores the post-apocalyptic landscape with her friend Riley. Some might recognize Riley from the American Dreams prologue comic that was released through Dark Horse earlier this year.
In the teaser trailer, we see Ellie and Riley approaching what appears to be a dilapidated fairground, complete with carousel. Much like The Last of Us‘ main campaign, the visuals in the trailer, specifically the lighting effects, are top notch. There are unfortunately no clues as to how gameplay might work in Left Behind – whether Naughty Dog will break from The Last of Us‘ formula, or simply adopt it for a younger version of Ellie – only this brief tease.
