As if the confirmation of one rumored, and hotly anticipated, video game wasn’t enough for one day, Sony’s PlayStation Experience concluded with the announcement of the sequel to “The Last of Us.”
The reveal trailer for Naughty Dog’s “The Last of Us Part II” introduces an adult Ellie — to the cheers of the event’s crowd — playing an acoustic guitar and singing a song whose lyrics, “I can’t walk on the path of the right because I’m wrong.” When Joel walks past dead bodies and enters the room and asks, “Are you really going to go through with this?” Ellie hoarsely responds, “I’m gonna find, and I’m gonna kill, every last one of them.”
There’s no release date for the sequel, as PlayStation cautions it’s “still early days for the project.”
Debuting in 2013, “The Last of Us” is a third-person survival horror game set in a post-apocalyptic world populated by hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures. Players control Joel, who must escort Ellie (then a teenager) across the United States.
Released to near-universal acclaim, “The Last of Us” sold more than 3.4 million units within its first three week on its way to becoming one of the most-awarded video games of all time. Despite that overwhelmingly positive reception, Naughty Dog indicated in 2014 that a sequel wasn’t a foregone conclusion, but would instead be dependent on the developers finding a story “really worth telling.”
