Left Behind, the prequel DLC for The Last of Us, will be available as a standalone download from May 12.

The price of the Left Behind DLC will drop that day as well.

Included with the standalone release is a two hour trial of The Last of Us’s Factions multiplayer mode, and those keen to continue the experience will be able to buy access to the full Factions experience and/or the full The Last of Us game.

Left Behind follows The Last of Us’s young heroine Ellie through events that run before and parallel to those of The Last of Us.
