Oh, sh*t! The PlayStation Experience is happening today and it was announced that one of my favorite games of all time, The Last of Us, is getting a sequel!
The first game came out in 2013 from Naughty Dog and was a post-apocalyptic shooter that focused on Joel and Ellie as they fought to survive in a world ravaged by a fungal viral outbreak. Don’t trust the fungus, folks. I’ve been anxiously waiting for a sequel but I wasn’t sure if it would ever happen. A live stream last year accidentally unveiled Naughty Dog was working on a sequel but even Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckman wrote on the PlayStation Blog that the studio spent “years on different ideas (and almost [gave] up), [but] we finally uncovered a story that felt special.” Thank goodness they found the right story!
The game isn’t coming anytime soon but the announcement and trailer are enough to keep rabid fans like I content.
So Ellie (Ashley Johnson) wants to kill a bunch of people. This should be fun. And hello, Joel (Troy Baker) *wink, wink.* What? I can find a video game character hot.
