At this year’s PSX, Neil Druckmann, co-writer Halley Gross, and members of the cast teased some details of The Last of Us Part II.
After the Paris Games Week trailer in October, the game has a very dark feel to it at the moment – with Druckmann saying, at the first trailer reveal last year, it was “about hate.”
He added this year that, “There is hope, there are light-hearted moments.” Though to counterbalance that, he also said, “No one is safe, not even [Joel and Ellie].”
Check out the full panel:
Druckmann’s writing partner Halley Gross, who worked on HBO’s Westworld, has provided plenty of “awesome ideas” according to Druckmann.
He said, on the subject of her input, “After the first day, Halley goes home and talks to her husband, and she’s like, ‘I think I got someone pregnant.’ And you’ll see what that means.”
With regard to the popular rumours around the setting for The Last of Us Part II, Druckmann confirmed Seattle will seat a large portion of the game.
He also commented on how much had already been completed, saying, “We’ve handed off a bunch of levels…. We’re like 50 to 60 percent? I don’t know how far.”
Finally, Druckmann also confirmed that more of The Last of Us Part II will be shown off at E3 in 2018.
