I can’t believe this is actually happening!
Playstation recently closed out its Keynote Experience by announcing that a sequel to hit video game The Last of Us is currently in development. The announcement came in the form of buzz chatter and the unveiling of the first teaser trailer, which I have included for you below.
The Last of Us 2 will be a direct sequel to the first game by Sony and Naughty Dog. It will take place several years after the first installment and will feature Ellie, now as an adult, as the central character. And don’t worry. Joel is there, too, though he didn’t sound the same to me?
In the teaser trailer, grown Ellie sits on a bed, bruised, bloody and battered. She finds a guitar and plays a morbid folk song before vowing revenge and to kill all of them. Just who is all of them? The fireflies? The zombies? Something new? Looks like we’ll have to wait until late 2017 or early 2018 to find out.
The Last of Us was one of the biggest releases of 2013. It received near perfect reviews, sold over 7,000,000 copies and was the recipient of over 240 game of the year awards. Let’s hope the sequel sees the same success.
