If There is a Sequel to "The Last of Us," What are some ideas for the sequel? and does Naughty Dog have enough gumption to really try?
I want to be part of a elite firefly team who's soul purpose is to find Ellie and Joel, yes let us play the bad guys for once! Actually some may say their the good guys... Cross country pursuit of them would be interesting, maybe give Ellie and Joel a group they could belong to aswell.
Interesting Plot! I would think playing as a Bandit in a different area telling a new story would be really interesting! If there is one thing that The Last of Us IP should bring to gamers, is Human Reality.
Think the game should just stand on its own as a great game without a sequel. Wish BioShock and Dead Space would have both been like that too. Not every game needs to spawn a franchise. CoD is the extreme example but having 3 studios work on a franchise to put out a annual game is just wrong. One studio putting out a great game every 3 years is plenty.
With the loose knots at the end of the first one, with the sales, and with the reception, the game will have a sequel.
I think it should take place in another place with new characters in roughly the same time frame as TLOU took place. Ellie and Joel had their story's beginning middle and end and I feel like it would be difficult to top that with a direct sequel. Maybe some references or cameo appearances, but Ellie and Joel should not come back as main protagonists IMO.
Ellie holds the cure so I doubt it'll be the end of her story, the Fireflies (whoever is left) will still go after her for that reason
I agree, this world can have a large number of stories to be told, going back to the same characters is not in my best or worst interest, but preferably would like a new and different experience!
Don't care what other people want ( no offence to any of ye) but any follow up to the last of us in my book will be most welcomed. This game made me buy my ps4 having come from 360, very excited to see part 2.
Me too. But I hope they hire someone great for the AI and prevent friendlies from blocking your retreat with their 'giant invisible forcefield/hitbox' and ending your perfect run on the hardest difficulty after minutes of trouble through no fault of your own :(. I can't remember anything else to complain about since everything else was great, but this would take it to the next level. I get that they'd probably have to lower AI for modes like easy and normal but I'd like a real challenge.
Too many possibilities.... 1.start where they left off and go back to joel's brothers. More infected etc... 2.Prequel~~~~~~~~~~ Lets see Joel in his 20 years of survival.
This, bring back Tess.
Prequels never turn out good. Tess was an awful character shoehorned in while Ellie wasn't there, I was pretty happy she died.
I was thinking prequel as well. Tommy was in the fireflies, they could cover that and what went down between him and Joel to push them apart. We could play as Tommy this time with Joel being a minor character.
The Last of Us 2 open world please.
Well, I would rather have them make a spin off wi the h open world survival with the same mechanics. TLOU2 needs to stay on Ellie's storyline though.
"The First of Us" - Story of how Joel got to survive the initial outbreak and how the first post-apocalyptic cities/forts were formed
Last of Us 2 that features no characters from the first game. Don't ruin the first game by making a sequel.
so now the last of us 2 will come to xbox one and xbox 360 look at the tags :)
Joel gets ravaged by an infected Ellie in the final minutes of the last chapter. Ellie is shotgunned by a random stranger. The End.
It needs Ellie as the main character in the sequel. These people saying "use different characters" don't have a clue how the original was set up. I would be bored as hell if some of the people on here directed the sequel. Pick up 5 years after the first game, Joel gets re-married. Ellie is older. Life is much better than it used to be.. Joel teaches Ellie how to play the guitar, more survival skills and how to fight. The cordyceps have mutated, they can now infect animals. It turns out there are others who are immune The government is going across the county with the fireflies to find Ellie and the others. They run Joel and Ellie out of town, Joel gets infected and Ellie kills him. She's now alone, and fleeing from the government, bandits, and infected. She meets up with a group of immune and survives with them. One girl reminds her of Riley and she develops feelings for her. That's all I got so far.. And much more entertaining than some of the stuff I'm reading here.
They already said their second team is making a new ip and the current one is doing Uncharted 4
There will be a sequel the game has sold a lot of copies and awards.
Ellie -> Main Character. "They already said their second team is making a new ip " No, second Team working on "unannounced IP" (TLoU2, 99%), not New IP.
"The Last of Us" is an existing, previously announced IP. The sequel is the same IP. In this case unannounced does mean new. They mentioned it's similar in scale to Uncharted though.
I honestly prefer a prequel with Joel, Billy, Tommy. Those 20 years are missing.
