The Last of Us Part II – PGW 2017 Trailer | PS4
From the trailer, we get four new characters. Yara, Lev, Emily, and mysterious new women. Some people are theorizing this new mysterious figure to be Anna, Eli’s mother. Emily is being dragged to be hung, and later Yara is brought in and questioned. From there the action gets bloody and a bit gory.
The Creative Director Neil Druckmann for Naughty Dog said this about the game;
“At its core, The Last of Us Part II is still very much about Ellie and Joel, but for this reveal, we wanted to showcase several new characters that are integral to their next journey. We’re sure you will have many questions after watching this scene.
We’re also pretty sure that we’re going to see all sorts of theories about whom these characters are, where and when this scene takes place, and how all of this fits into Ellie and Joel’s next story. For now, we’re keeping mum, but we’re excited to see what y’all make of this piece of the puzzle.”
“Instead of giving you an adjacent puzzle piece about Ellie and Joel’s journey, we wanted to go somewhere else and give you something else and see how people make the connections. But as far as who these characters are, what their conflict is, where this takes place, when this takes place, going to leave it up to the fans for now,” Druckmann said.
