The Last Of Us actress Ashley Johnson, who took on the role of Ellie, has spoken to the PlayStation Blog about Left Behind, which is the prequel DLC for our Game Of The Year. It is focused on Ellie and her best friend, Riley, who you may have heard mentioned during the main game.
The Ellie of Left Behind is apparently quite different to the one we’re used to with Ashley saying that she is more playful, and seems to be more like a typical teenage girl in the company of her best friend Riley, voiced by Yanni King. Both are students at a military boarding school too, quite the opposite to being with the Fireflies.
It appears to be based in a shopping mall, at least that’s the impression given by Ashley when speaking about how the DLC feels different in tone to the main story campaign.
“It’s definitely different. It’s a little bit more ‘fun’, because you have two teenage girls going through a mall. It’s kind of like a post-pandemic version of two teenage girls hanging out. Definitely not a normal hangout! It’s very different – a little more playful.”
It will also likely have a view of how Ellie got her bite as she was in the company of Riley when it happened.
