When I saw the title I was thought twice if this was real or not and was like “WHAT THE HECK!”
What we know so far…(according trailer/developer comments 04/12/16) – Scroll Down for updates.
-You will mainly play as Ellie
In the first game we only got to play as Ellie just for certain sections and DLC, we loved her brutal nature and wanted more, in the second game
Ellie is the main character and will be the one driving the story forward.
-Story is about REVENGE!
“I’m gonna find… and I’m gonna kill every last one of them”
DAMN! Something insane must have happened, has Ellie gone blood drunk and talking about wiping the Earth clean of the infected?…
Or is she referring to the Fireflies (militia group?) We don’t know yet and I can’t wait to find out!
-Ellie is 19!
Ellie is has now reached adulthood, who knows what she’s been doing all those years… oh wait, she’s probably been leaving a pile of dead corps’.
The Last Of Us was arguably the best looking game on the PS3 and they already have a new engine at their disposal! I thought Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4 graphics left the PS4’s power drained, I cant wait to see the kind of graphical innovations this game brings, especially to the PlayStation Pro.
Theories and Speculations
–Joel is DEAD
Maybe Ellie is going after the Fireflies for killing Joel, and Ellie is hallucinating. “I’m gonna find… and I’m gonna kill every last one of them”
Now that Ellie is a young women, maybe Joel and Ellie form a romantic bond. I know that’s really weird to think about to anyone who has played the first game, but hey…
it’s a cold, lonely world out there.
-Joel is immune to the virus
Ellie is immune to the virus and Joel has been exposed to Ellie for a very long time, maybe Ellie’s immunity has somehow spread to Joel.
This story could contain a journey in which they are trying to find how to spread or extract the immunity into others.
(Update) 10/31/2017 PlayStation Paris
The epic PlayStation Paris 2017 event featured a new Last Of Us 2 trailer.
We get introduced to all new characters.
The first one is a woman who’s having a rope tied around her neck.
The next is an evil woman who looks in charge of the 2 guys tying the rope. She says to the woman being hung. “They are nested with sin”.
It seems like this woman is part of a cult, maybe their leader.
Next we see 2 generic looking characters that tie the rope. (Spoiler alert if you haven’t watched the trailer)
Up next is a little girl being dragged along by 2 men. The supposed occult woman asks her about the”other apostate”. But this brave little girl refuses to answer.
What happens next is brutal.
The occult woman says “clip her wings”. One of the men who are holding the little girl down takes a hammer and bashed it straight into her arm.
He then gives the hammer to the next guy so he can supposedly “clip her wing”. When suddenly an arrow goes straight through his face.
Whiles they’re all distracted the little girl impales the man with the hammer. Straight through the neck.
Is it me or does this little remind us of Ellie?
We later see the person that shot the arrow. A boy who looks related to the little girl.
They eventually get the woman down that’s being strangled by a rope.
And they all lived happily ever after. THE END.
The trailer ends by a bunch of infected storming in.
If you haven’t played it, then get it NOW! ==>
