A sequel to arguably one of the best games in the past decade has been announced during the PlayStation Experience. The Last Of Us Part II is the newest game Naughty Dog is working on, and its a direct sequel to The Last of Us. Set five years after the events of the original game, players will now play as Ellie instead of Joel.

Like many of you, we have a deep love for the world of The Last of Us and its characters, and while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, that wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie. – Neil DruckmannCreative Director at Naughty Dog

Both Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker return to reprise their respected roles as Ellie and Joel. A teaser trailer was shown, revealing of course The Last of Us Part II. During this reveal trailer we got to see a much older Ellie, who looked rather angry. Joel made a brief appearance, but the main focus was on Ellie. Who performed a chilling version of Through The Valley on a acoustic guitar. The reveal trailer gave us a good glimpse of what the tone of the The Last of Us sequel might be like. What ever story Naughty Dog has us awaiting in The Last of Us 2, we’re sure it will be worth the wait.
