E3 2018: The Last of Us Part II Gets Gameplay Reveal

12 June 2018

The Last of Us Part 2 was the first game to get the trailer treatment at Sony's E3 conference this year, though not after a short banjo number that outstayed its welcome a little. In a blog post, director Neil Druckmann discussed Ellie and her motivations, while he also confirmed the role of another celebrity who is working on the game. She is on a path towards finding peace in her world-but it doesn't last.

Unfortunately, there's still no release date for The Last of Us Part II.

"When that peace is disrupted by a violent act, Ellie is thrust into a brutal journey of retribution, fueled by a need to bring those that have wronged her to justice, pushing her to her very limits", Druckmann said. Oddly enough, Joel - the previous game's protagonist - has not appeared in the game yet. It took place in a dance hall that looked like the hall in which the actual E3 2018 Sony briefing was held.

There are still many questions remaining, such as the timeline of the events we see above, but we can probably safely say that Ellie will be the main character of this installment. The enemy AI is now more sophisticated as well.

The trailer opens with Ellie at a party, as she watches a young woman, Dina, dancing.

To those who know the series, this moment shouldn't come as a complete surprise: In the expansion for The Last of Us, called Left Behind, it's made clear that Ellie is interested in girls, but it wasn't exactly something that was immediately broadcast in front of such a wide audience.
