Naughty Dog developed an adventure game called “The Last of Us” back in 2013. It was published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The whole game is played from the viewpoint of a third person. The game has harmful humans as well as creatures infected by a mutated strain of a fungus. Two actors do the voice acting and motion capture for the two main characters of the game, Joel and Ellie. The Last of Us game has been repeatedly praised for its visuals, sound design, and female character depiction. It is one of the most successful video games of all time, as it has sold over 1.3 million units in the first week alone. Many accolades were also awarded.
What is the game about?
The game is not for the lighthearted. The player has to survive many horrors in a post-apocalyptic setting. There are many options for defense, a player can make use of firearms like shotguns, rifles, weapons, and stealth to fight against hostile enemies. Weapons can also be upgraded. Players can use a heightened sense of listening to detect enemies through “Listen Mode”. The player can control Joel. Joel happens to be a young man charged with the duty of escorting Ellie, a young girl, through the United States. This action-adventure packed game is also available in multiplayer mode, allowing up to eight players.
Will there be the next part?
Taking the enormous sales into account, the third installment of Last of Us seems very likely. But no official announcement has been made yet. According to the director of these games, Neil Druckmann, these games are not only providing action and violence, but the story of Ellie and Joel also makes a significant impact on the audience. So, there is a need for a story that would fit perfectly as the sequel. The gap between the release dates of parts one and two was almost seven years. So if there is a part three, there would be a long wait. Perhaps, the next part would follow Yara and Lev (two characters from Last of Us part 2) and their sibling bond.
Is there a trailer?
Unfortunately, no trailer yet is available for part 3 of The Last of Us.
