Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann just confirmed new gameplay and story details on The Last of Us Part II during a live stream Q&A.
The Last of Us was amazing on PS3 but it is on PS4 where this series is gonna reach its full potential. That melee combat was awesome. Can't wait for the multiplayer with all these new additions to gameplay Take your time with this Naughty Doge.
I reckon it'll be 2019, though maybe second half.
Yes, probably fall 2019 at the latest.
Wonder if Joel will show up in the game
I think so. But I am puzzled by this: "This shuts down fan theories that he might have been dead, even." They directly mention "Her Dad" and his strictness when it comes to security. Who did they think the characters were discussing? Also did they think all of his scenes were flashbacks? I bring this up because Baker himself acknowledged he was working on the game and its listed on his IMDB page as well. Some theory these people had. I would hope to get a playable level or two as Joel. I really want him introduced in a scene when Ellie is in trouble and he shows up a little grayer and longer in the tooth and just smokes some people that deserve it.
I wouldn't be surprised if he's morphed into a sort of antagonist and we get different playable characters.
He showed up in the original reveal trailer did he not?
People believed it was all in Ellie's head - nice theory though.
Exactly. It seems to me the story goes like: Ellie and her girlfriend are raped and her gf gets killed while Ellie gets pregnant. Joel came in time to save her. I would have liked some answers about the PGW trailer. I've always had the feeling it might not be a flashback about her mum. In the gameplay we do see the same sort of shit going on with these guys hanging and gutting people
If you read the article, Neil says Joel is in Jacksonville, where Ellie is.
Really legit gameplay.. i hope the dodging is as fluid as it looked in the reveal.
It's Naughty Dog. Smooth animations is exactly what they do best.
That lean back dodge from the knife attack I hope is real and was amazing.
The smooth as butter animation, contextual dodge mechanics and interactive environment is incredible.
Game of the year material
I mean, they won more GOTY Awards than GTAV in 2013 with TLOU. They were even able to beat Rockstar, which is self-explanatory.
I think Rockstar is glad that The Last of Us 2 is not coming out this year :D. Still can't believe they managed to beat GTA V in 2013.
They "beat" them in only awards, though, ay? Not sales? I don't really care, either way. But, I'm sure Rockstar cares more about the sales than the accolades. On a side note, I'm not really surprised to see a game like The Last of Us overtake GTA. GTA is a great game and great franchise but it's been done, we've seen it. TLOU came out of nowhere and blew us all away. It was new, it was refreshing, we remembered it. It stood out. I'm sure that's why it overtook GTA, in Game of the Year.
i feel bad for the ps4 god of war made it in to a jet engine xD i wonder what wil tlou2 do to it lol
If mine melts I want a refund.
Well the PS4 already took off with 80 million sold, so it can only go up into orbit from here with The Last of Us2. Sony always reaching for the stars with their exclusives.
It's telling you to attach wings so it can fly when the time comes.
My ps4 pro doesn't get loud except for when I'm in certain menus on some games, it's only loud in those menus but never during game play. Maybe clean more often your house must be too dusty or have not enough air around the console.
That also happened for me with some PS3 games. I could never understand what the hell is going on in a menu that could send the fan into high speed.
No the ps4/pro is just loud. I keep a clean house weekly vacuuming and I've even taken the lid off my pro and dust everything inside has plenty of room on all sides for air. For me almost all my games make it run like a jet engine. God of war though made it loud enough to hear even with headphones at times. Hopefully sony makes it a point to make it quieter next to around.
Maybe it's not as noisy in a menu screen; and while you're playing you are just distracted by the fun or the sound of the game\music. Like the "My car is making weird noises; but my budget is just telling me to turn up my stero" thing.
Really? Mine was as quiet as always when playing God of War. You people need to dust off your hardware.
So glad they're improving the melee. That was definitely the weakest part of the first game. I can't wait to see how they do multiplayer for this one
Can't wait to see what role Joel will play in the game. The improvements look awesome so far. Fingers crossed for release next year.
Still gotta play this series
you're in for quite a treat.
The Last of Us Part 2 will possibly be game of the generation!!!
This game looks so and so good that the head of Shadow of the Tomb Raider can't believe is real.
I can't blame them, I mean everything in that gameplay reveal looked freaking realistic from Ellie's movements. Little things like pulling an arrow from a corpse, pulling out whatever she got shot with out of her arm while in cover. Seeing emotions and fear from Ellie and the bad guys. The intense gameplay mechanics is the most brutal and most realistic I've ever seen in any game because it looks so freaking real. If u noticed in the end of the reveal at the Sony conference people we're so shocked at the realism and how brutal it was they couldn't even clap because they were still in disbelief that, that was all gameplay. Look at every YouTube reaction to tlou and everyone is just mind blown from what they are seeing. Did u see the explosion in her arrow she crafted? My Lord seeing that body explode was crazy as f**k. The way the brute threw Ellie through the glass. It was so intense and mind boggling. This game is going to push realism and brutality to the next level and I cant wait to play it. Take my money already naughty dog.
What? The Last of Us 2 gets a jump button but God of War 4 doesn’t lmao jk
I wish devs could keep spoilers to themselves.
I'm still sad we're playing as Ellie and not Joel but still the game looks amazing and I just can't get over how awesome and fluid the melee combat looked because that was the only blemish in the first game in my opinion.
Dont be sad, i think after you start playing all will came together and you will be happy.... But ya we need to wait.... But dont be nd knows what to do....
He should have said nothing about Joel and let the players find out themselves.. Lol
Looked really good!
