The Last of Us Part II spans the gamut of human emotion

During its E3 event this evening, Sony has kicked things off with an extended look at The Last of Us 2, a sequel to the hit 2013 game. "We're making a game about the cycle of violence and we're making a statement about violent actions and the impact they have on the character that's committing them and on the people close to them", he told Kotaku. The story trailer showed an older Ellie and her girlfriend having a nice heart warming chat before it cuts to gameplay, with Ellie cutting some guy's throat out and sneaking through a very pretty jungle.

In The Last of Us Part II, Ellie is now 19 and has found a semblance of peace and normality living in Jackson. The title was again teased at the Paris Games Week trade show past year and at E3 2018, we're getting another - more intimate - look at the promising sequel. However, it was creative director Neil Druckmann who apparently spilled the beans, confirming that "Ellie is the only playable character in the game". He sat and began to pluck at the strings, and soon, it became apparent that this was a part of the OST and main theme of Last of Us Part II. Woodward and Ashley Johnson, who voices Ellie, recreated the scene in real life at the Sony E3 2018 briefing.
