But nothing could have quite prepared audiences for what we got for The Last Of Us Part 2 at E3, with not only a visually stunning story trailer, but our first glimpse at new and improved gameplay. On top of that, enemies appear to be more coordinated now, and Naughty Dog's overhauled engine looks awesome. "We're making a game about the cycle of violence and we're making a statement about violent actions and the impact they have on the character that's committing them and on the people close to them", he told Kotaku. The title was again teased at the Paris Games Week trade show a year ago and at E3 2018, we're getting another - more intimate - look at the promising sequel. While we wait for more confirmation on just who you'll be able to play as let us know if you're okay with just controlling Ellie in the upcoming The Last of Us Part II, or if you'd rather play as someone else. She's had a chance to be a teenager and forge lasting relationships. The original The Last of Us debuted in 2013 and was a huge success for the PlayStation platform.
Obviously, this is a bit of a departure from the last game, which saw you playing as Joel for a large portion of the game before briefly allowing you to take over as Ellie.
