Set five years after 2013’s The Last of Us, players will take on the role of a 19-year-old Ellie, who must contend with a mysterious Christian cult in a post-apocalyptic United States, with large portions of the game set in Seattle.
The game has players wielding firearms, utilizing stealth, and utilizing improvised weapons to fight against hostile humans and cannibalistic creatures that have been infected by the Cordyceps fungus.
According to Director and Writer Neil Druckmann:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”We’re making a game about the cycle of violence and we’re making a statement about violent actions and the impact they have … [the idea] was for the player to feel repulsed by some of the violence they are committing themselves.”[/testimonials]
