Where Is Joel In The Last Of Us 2?

Cultured Vultures: He's yet to make a proper appearance, but we have some ideas on where the gruff Texan Joel is in the events of The Last of Us 2.

hopefully we get to play as Joel also. I think TLOU is about Joel and Ellie both.

At the beginning of the trailer, the guy said to Ellie about her “old man”. That would be Joel.

I have a feeling they are going to pull a DMC4 here. You play the first 33% as Ellie, then you play about 33% as Joel, Then you finish the game as Ellie. 

They touched up on that formula to a lesser extent with the full game, I could see them expanding on it in part 2. We know Joel is alive, and he plays just as major a role in the overarching franchise plot as Ellie. Do we really believe that he is just going to sit by idle and twiddle is thumbs while his "daughter" is out there on this quest for vengeance? 

He will play a major role in this one way or another.

I 100% agree with you on this. I do not want Joel pushed to the background. I want to play as both.

But Niel did confirm that in LOU 2 we will be playing as Ellie

@ Ceaser...

That doesn't mean that we won't play as Joel, hopefully.

Yeah I want an equal amount of each character for this game

I'm going to say the new religious looking group kill her girlfriend

"I'm going to of them"

She goes off on her own

The levels will split between Ellie and Joel

Ellie on her personal mission consumed by rage

Joel trying to find Ellie

If it is a revenge quest thing, then splitting it up between Ellie sections and Joel sections would definitely help the narrative along. And I would like to play as Joel again. Can't say I'm not disappointed that so far it seems like Ellie is all you play as.

J-DARKnes189d ago

I hope is much deeper than this but you're probably spot on.

-Foxtrot189d ago (Edited 189d ago )


Oh it probably will be but I'm guessing that's the general, early plot to get the story started.

I'm thinking that the religious nut jobs from the trailers are brand new and were created or came into more followers to become what they are today from ex-fireflies, who's leader was killed and most of them wiped out. Almost dissolving they either joint these people or some of them went a different way of thinking and gave birth to the group.

That would mean Joels decision and that Lie he told Ellie will really come to bite him on the ass...and if these people killed Ellie's girlfriend and she finds out Joel killing Marlene along with half the fireflies to save her in the first game gave birth to them then she'll blame him with her girlfriends death aswelll

You know...something like that. Most likely bullshit but it's a cool thought of Joels actions creating something far worse.

what wrong you? I say you he dead.

The_Sage189d ago

Did you write that like that on purpose?.. If you did, that's hilarious. Lol

yeahright2189d ago

Family guy obscure reference. Peter trying to meet colonel sanders at a random KFC in Kentucky.

The_Sage189d ago

Lmao! I remember that now. Well done.

Gamist2dot0189d ago

I think the next trailer will be Joel. In the video where Ellie was chatting with the Asian dude, they were talking about her "old man" who was giving him orders going on runs and when to be on watch. I think Joel got promoted lol.
