Main Playable Character: The Last of Us Part 2 is bringing the biggest change in terms of the main character as Ellie will be the only playable character in the sequel. While Joel was the lead in the first game and Ellie was only in supporting role, things are changing this time as the girl has grown up and will be doing most of the action in The Last of Us 2 game.
Role of Joel: Everyone thought that Joel has died and Ellie has been avenging his death in ‘The Last of Us Part 2’ but that was proved wrong when the second trailer showed Joel in a limited capacity. There are chances that Joel will come in time and save Ellie when she is pinned down by her enemies.
New Characters: The Last of Us Part 2 trailer released at the 2017 Paris Games Week showed 3 new characters, Yara, Lev, and an unknown woman. Most of the theories predict that the unnamed woman is Ellie’s mother and ‘The Last of Us Part 2’ cutscenes will include flashbacks.
Human and Zombie Enemies: There will be different types of human and zombie enemies in the game sequel and the infected characters from the first part will also upgrade with new powers. The Last of Us Part 2 will have evolved zombies that can infuse you with poison and it will be difficult to fight the new enemies.
NPC and Emotional Killing: The Last of Us 2 makers have teased that it won’t be easy for Ellie to kill her enemies as even the NPCs will scream and reflect their memories on her. The Last of Us sequel will make you feel bad for killing human characters and which will make the game more emotional.
