The Last of Us Part 2 – Release Date
The game is still in the early stages of development, There has been no official word on when we can expect The Last of Us Part II to release on the PlayStation 4 – the initial trailer didn’t even carry a year, unlike most Sony reveals.
Story –What we know so far
The denizens of infected we faced in The Last of Us were unsettling to say the least, but never truly terrified us. Unless we happened to be playing on Grounded with no way to defend ourselves. By adapting a new setting, Naughty Dog should also introduce a host daunting new enemies. The infected should be bigger and more challenging.
At the moment we know The Last of Us 2 will take place in the city of Seattle, five years after the end of the original game, with a 19 year old Ellie taking the starring playable role. Joel will still appear in the game but if the teaser trailer is anything to go by, he could be a much more passive presence.
This time around, Ellie is extremely angry about…something. From what we saw from the teaser trailer she wants revenge, which to her appears to be a dish best served deadly.
She does, after all, promise to “kill every last one of them.” It’s not clear who “them” is but it could signal that the Fireflies, the first game’s well-meaning but morally grey antagonists, will make a return. Anger, hate and revenge are going to be key themes this time around so expect to be in for an emotionally heavy ride.
