The lights are on
Update: The cat is apparently out of the bag. Naughty Dog has confirmed the release date via Twitter:
If a banner ad and a now-removed product page are to be believed, the story-based DLC for Game Informer's game of the year should be here in a matter of weeks. We already knew the downloadable story would be coming early this year, but an advertisement for the content on PSN seemed to out the release date as February 14.
Of course, Sony has since removed the relevant images, but they are preserved for posterity on NeoGAF, where the information first leaked out.
Dubbed "Left Behind," the new tale follows Ellie and her friend Riley in a scenario set prior to the events of the main game. For more on the upcoming DLC, read voice actress Ashley Johnson discussing her role as Ellie for the new content.
Our TakeThe Last of Us was a great game, and Ellie is a great character. The sooner we can experience more of her story, the better.
