The first chapter of story DLC for The Last of Us will be available on PlayStation 3 from February 14, Naughty Dog has announced.

Left Behind is set before the events of the main game, and follows Ellie and her friend Riley as they explore an abandoned shopping mall.

Ellie is attending a military boarding school in Boston, and Riley is her mentor of sorts. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Riley has a big role in The Last of Us' comic prequel, The Last of Us: American Dreams.

Left Behind is available for pre-order on PSN now for AU$28.
