All open unmarked spoilers for Last of Us 2 will go here.

 

What we know so far..

 

  • You play the first half of the game as Ellie, and the second half as Abby (the character featured in the PGW 2017 trailer played by Laura Bailey)
  • Joel dies at the hands of Abby
  • One of the surgeons Joel killed had a daughter called Abby
  • The Firefly massacre destroyed her whole life, she's been looking for revenge ever since
  • Knew who Ellie was because of her dad talking about their shot at a cure, figured out Joel from Firefly records
  • Cult attacks Ellie's settlement and she, Jesse, and Dinah are part of the group sent to track down and attack it - Jesse is killed during this
  • Ellie is now violently angry and goes to Seattle looking for the cults home to wipe it out, meets Joel there because he heard about Jesse and came back to help her
  • Abby finds Ellie because she's been in conflict with the cult too, so when Ellie hunts them to Seattle and is set to attack them with Joel her group find them and attack
  • She kills Joel herself, takes Ellie back to camp debating what to do with her since for all her hate she doesn't blame her for the massacre
  • Ellie butchers her group to escape and Abby is now motivated to hunt her down
  • Second half of the game is spent as Abby chasing Ellie
  • Ellie continues hunting the cult while you chase her down
  • Ending is Ellie and Abby fighting to the death
  • You kill Ellie as Abby, and she leaves while realizing she's not really "won" in any meaningful way since all she's done is get more of her loved ones killed for the sake of her killing Joel and then Ellie
  • Ending is "cycle of revenge" with the loose implication Ellie's friends will hunt Abby now in return

Reads like an edgelord teenager's ultimate fantasy. Straight up psychopathic. I almost threw up a little in my mouth.

 

Killing the main characters(s) ONLY to serve some message is what creatively bankrupt writers would usually come up with when they have nothing interesting to say. What's even more bewildering is that you play as the villain! I wonder what ND were smoking!

 

I thought one of the earlier theories of Ellie taking revenge on a religious cult for the supposedly murder of her partner itself was very unoriginal and now I wish THAT was the actual case instead.

THe internet is full with nothing else but hatred towards this game. This makes me wonder what exactly is the reason. Some are saying the story is trash. Well, naughty dog never re-invents the wheel anyways. Uncharted was like Indiana Jones, TLOU was like any other dystopian post apocalyptic story. However what naught dog does best is its presentation. I am 100 percent sure that all of us can anticipate what the story in TLOU2 would be like, but most of us are still excited as we know how genius ND is when it comes to gameplay, character development etc. I am sure even after those leaks, a majority of gameplay mechanics/dialogues/set pieces etc have not been revealed that actually connects you to the characters. More than the story, I prefer gameplay mechanics that ND loads its games with it. As John Carmack once said, "Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It is there, but it doesnt really matter much". Though I am sure TLOU2 still has story sequences that we would love but the gameplay alone would push it towards the coveted GOTY tag.

Abby vs Ellie.

Abby is powerful, breaks the arm just like that. One of my fav. things about joel was the brute force he was, killing dudes with those punches, melee weapons. Seems like abby is right up there, cant wait to play as her.

Yep, it was the gameplay and combat encounters that made me fell in love with this game,  like car pushing sequence while killing clickers, generator room, etc the intensity in the encounters was off the charts. Didnt care about the story at first, but after the second half liked both joel/eliie and how it was presented. And the final scene where joel kill everyone and saves ellie was wtf moment and made me love the game even more.  Most probably ND will do it again. And all these leaks sound interesting to me. But reaching the level of joel's character? Thats going to be a hard one. I just hope that dude dies giving a proper fight and breaking sh*t before going down.

There is one more leak and more interesting and hope this one is true.

114-A722-B-99-A4-40-E6-BBF0-B45968117-EF


Ellie and Diana are left to die by abby. Now there was a love making scene leaked between them, diana had a scar on her face and arrow wound on her back implying it happened after Ellie/abby fight.

Then the leaked cutscene where diana asks ellie not to go out there, ellie is wearing joels jacket. looking for revenge. Most probably happens after the above encounter. Probably farm level as per leaks.

Still epilogue and one more level left. I hope here we get to play as ellie and fight abby or make up for a sequel. I just hope ellie doesnt die and fights abby again.

how long is the game? From the chapter list, it looks kinda short when compared to ND standards.

 

Also, I think the leaks are not chronological. Else ND would have launched the game in may itself. Maybe the stories that are being stitched are not in sync, and that's the reason the official tweet said "the final experience will be worth it"

Yes the sniper mission was just epic. And those elements of crafting weapons, desperation, frantic fist fights, the scale of those maps, lighting effects, clickers attacking...damn, goosebumps already!

They said its the longest one they ever made, so expect it to be at least 20 hrs.

Whole plot seems to be engineered for maximum edge to get praises for le "rich and deep story" from games journalists

>Kill other main character from previous game, brutally, for shock value.

>Have you play the villainous character to make player sympathize with her supposedly.

>Have said villainous character utterly wreck Ellie.

>Leave cheap cliffhanger ending where said villain goes after Ellie again to finish the job.

 

I haven't even played the OG tlou but this is too much, messing the storyline just for awards.

If you play the first game you'll see that Joel is the real villain, or at the very least no one is the good guy. I expected him to die at the end of first game, but ND chickened out and went for giraffes instead :lol:

That 2017 trailer ended with her facing a hoard of clickers with just a hammer. Now that we know she's playable...

It will be God of War ps4 but without the BOI, and without the axe having magic powers.
