We all knew it would happen sooner or later – Naughty Dog has finally announced The Last of Us 2, and it looks fucking incredible.
In what is probably one of the most hotly anticipated sequel reveals of all time, Sony finally lifted the curtain during a PlayStation event, sharing a gorgeous trailer that features an older, more hardened Ellie – and it seems she’s learned how to play guitar since the last game.
Let’s not screw around, shall we? You can check out the trailer below.
It seems that Ellie isn’t too pleased with the figure who walks in on her at the end of the trailer. Shall we assume its Joel?
Perhaps she discovered exactly what went down between Joel and the Fireflies during the climatic events of the original game – namely that he slaughtered a ton of them and made off with Ellie, taking any chance of a cure for the virus that destroyed the world in the process.
Obviously all we can do at this point is speculate wildly, but there’s gonna plenty to discover about what happened between Joel and Ellie when The Last of Us Part 2 finally comes to PlayStation 4.
The project is in very early stages right now, but we can all be happy with the fact that The Last of Us 2 is finally, definitely coming – let’s just hope it lives up to the original.
