Fans just can not wait for The Last of Us 2. E3 2018 gave us a new trailer for the game that made it very clear that Ellie will be the main character in the new story and it has now been revealed that Ellie will also be the only playable character in The Last of Us 2. So if you were looking for more characters to play, this is not good news.
Joel was the main character in the original game and players had control over him for most of the game, while in the later parts of the game, you had to complete some tasks with Ellie.
Well, a demo of The Last of Us 2 was showcased at Sony’s E3 2018 event which showed Ellie taking part in combat against the Seraphites who are one of the enemies in the game. An extended version of the demo was also shown behind closed doors to a selected audience where Naughty Dog was asked if the game includes playable characters other than Ellie.
Even though co-lead game designer Richard Cambier at first dodged the question by saying “We aren’t saying anything about that yet”, creative director Neil Druckmann later decided to confirm that Ellie will indeed be the only playable character in the upcoming game. So I hope you like Ellie.
