The Last of Us: Part II Is About “Hate;” Players Will Play as Ellie

on December 3, 2016 5:13 PM

During a panel at PlayStation Experience in Anaheim, presented by Sony Interactive Entertainment, The Last of Us: Part II Creative Director Neil Druckmann shared a relevant detail about the newly revealed game.

Druckmann mentioned that if the first game was about the love between Joel and Ellie, the story of The Last of Us: Part II  is the opposite. It’s about “hate,” and players will play as Ellie instead of playing as Joel like they did in the first game.

The game is set a few years after the first title, and Ellie will be nineteen years old. The “Part II” in the title means that the two games together create a larger story, and Druckmann promised that the team is going to do right by the fans, asking their trust in exchange.
