Players expect once more an emotional rollercoaster ride and a technical milestone.
Few information about the background history

Banghart, beautiful and emotional!
The second part plays about five years after the events of The Last of Us and introduces a now to the young woman Ellie in the center. In addition to Creative Director Neil Stuckmann, Westworld author is also involved in Halley Gross on the script of the Action Adventure. The Last of Us: Part 2 will once again become a very story-based adventure with souring Cutscenes and a rather rectilinear game approach.
What about Joel?
The Griiesbirsti Joel appears only between the lines in the Gameplay material published so far. Other characters speak about the Old Man – ie old man or father – to Ellie s side. Nevertheless, it is very likely that Ellie and Joel take the main roles together again.
Creative Director Neil Printant finally confirmed that Ellie will be the only playable character in The Last of Us: Part 2 . According to rumors, Joel could also be dead or die in an early portion of the game. However, there is no confirmation for these assignments yet.
Where does The Last of Us: Part 2 plays?

Whether The Last of Us: Part 2 also could be such roadtrip is not yet known. Printant explained in earlier interviews only that Seattle would be a scene within the dramaturgy of the game. We expect that several cities form the stage for The Last of Us: Part 2 .
Violence and feelings
Naughty Dog s action game so far impressed mainly through its ingenious presentation and the detail of the detail, with which characters and game world are displayed. At the latest the gameplay and CGI material presented on the E3 did not allow any doubts about the technical quality of the game. Especially impressively impressively impress the controversial kiss scene of Ellie and a young woman known so far. Even caresses are often artificial and wooden in many games, here are countless details – such as lip animations or even the deformation of skin.
On the other hand, The Last of Us: Part 2 places on contrasts. The violent violence of the game also caused some discussions and has almost exaggerated compared to the also bang-hard predecessor. : Part 2 The Last of Us schönt nothing and acts due to the successful graphics and strong presentation almost excessively brutal – no matter whether people hanged alive, beheaded or shot with bow and arrow are.
more freedoms in the fight
But what stands out in the previously shown scenes: Fighting between Ellie and some looters appear far more dynamic, free. The young warrior receives additional actions: She creeps example, a car and attacks from there from their adversaries. In attacks it deviates nimble touch of a button and appears formally under the blows of time.
It also squeezes in through bottlenecks and therefore escapes the gaze of their captors shortly. Overall, the gameplay is not nearly as ponderous and clumsy as he were in. The areas act of expansive, there are more options than before. So the battles reminiscent almost of Shadow of the Tomb Raider – only dirtier and merciless. Especially for slow attacks in the back, the game is generous with pixel blood and hearty actions.
Crafting the go!
Already The Last of Us had some survival and crafting elements, the successor attacks them again. Ellie uses u.a. to pistols, a machete and arrow and bow. You can pick up missed arrows and even pull them out bloody from your victims. In the gameplay demo, however, she also builds a TNT arrow from fifteen shells and an explosive body, which ruptifies several counterparties to the ground. The collecting and using resources for the construction of grenades, arrows or association tools remains an integral part of the game.

But there is currently no release date and according to developers Naughty Dog will probably be announced shortly before the appearance of the game.
