The upcoming DLC for The Last of Us have officially gone gold.

Left Behind, the upcoming story based DLC, has gone gold, meaning the game is now fully ready to be released. Game Director, Bruce Straley, posted what seem to be a picture of the game’s main menu with the tweet ready “GOLD!”

Announced last November, Left Behind is a prequel to the events of The Last of Us and follows original co-protagonist Ellie and her best friend Riley, a new character, as they attend a military boarding school in the Boston quarantine zone. Players follow their adventure through a series of events that changes them both forever.

Ashley Johnson, who won the Spike TV VGX Award for Best Actress, will be returning as Ellie whilst Yanni King will play Riley.

Lead Game Designer, Jacob Minkoff, recently promised the DLC will feature “extremely challenging fights” and also a new combat skill called “Multi-faction” which enables human enemies and infected to fight each other.

Left Behind is the only story based DLC planned, according to Community Strategist, Eric Monacelli, with future DLC revolving around multiplayer.

Last week, Sony also released 3 minutes of the game’s opening cutscene.

The game launches on February 14th.
