Gross, that is functioning as narrative lead and also co-writer on The Last of Us 2, disclosed some understandings regarding Ellie throughout a meeting with PlayStation Magazine (using WCCF Tech). It’s this certain quote from Gross which is getting hold of the headings: “We’re all working toward a vision about how do you make the most complex, nuanced character in a video game? Everybody’s putting their particular smarts toward that, and you get to just watch these incredibly brilliant people and go, ‘How the fuck does your brain work?’ Wizards. They’re wizards.”
This “complex, nuanced” personality is none apart from Ellie, Ashley Johnson’s returning hero from the initial video game. Of program, the interaction in between Johnson’s Ellie and also Troy Baker’s Joel in the initial video game belongs to what made The Last of Us its track record as one of the most effective and also most psychological video games of perpetuity.
“What we’re really trying to do is challenge Ellie to see who she can become when she grows up in such a hostile environment,” Gross takes place to state, teasing what Ellie will certainly be up versus in the following video game. “And part of writing is, very unfortunately, torturing your characters, putting them in hard situations, and testing their values and testing their drive. So while we love Ellie, and we’re really excited to see her grow up, we’re certainly not going to coddle her.”
We anticipate seeing the following phase in Ellie’s tale when The Last of Us 2 releases following year. Here’s really hoping that Naughty Dog can elevate bench also greater in regards to personalities and also feelings, confirming once more simply exactly how solid both of those points can be, also in a zombie-stuffed activity video game.
