In the lead-up to E3, we’re counting down with our most anticipated titles. You can find out when all the press conferences are taking place in Australian/NZ times HERE.
In this business, there’s few better than Naughty Dog at penning stories about characters we adore and wish well for. The Last of Us forced us to realise an almost paternal instinct as Ellie became the first and lone priority for gruff protagonist Joel in a post-pandemic world. As gamers, we felt our bond to Ellie grow as his did. With the sequel rumoured to be set in Seattle, let’s hope their friendship isn’t tested by the hardships they’re sure to face in a harsh, clicker-eat-dog world.
WHEN WAS IT ANNOUNCED?
The Last of Us: Part II was revealed the PlayStation Experience event back in 2016, as its trailer showed us that Ellie clearly did go on to learn the guitar. It was a haunting trailer that showed that death, decay and destruction hadn’t stopped following the pair.
