We Have a Trailer for The Last Of Us‘s Ellie-Centered Story DLC

The Last of Us has been fuel for a number of posts on this site beyond our basic review of it. From developer Naughty Dog’s insistence that focus testing include women and that their co-protagonist not be relegated to the back of the box simply because she was female to a two part discussion between me and Becky Chambers about the recent trend of male parental main characters with younger female child/helper secondary characters in this year’s video games. Naughty Dog just released this trailer for the game’s first story DLC, a bit of a prequel chapter featuring Ellie and her friend Riley in the days before she met Joel. That makes it an expansion of a very serious and very well recognized video game’s universe and story that appears to revolve entirely around the lives of two teenage girls. And that’s pretty cool.
