New gameplay and story details about The Last of Us Part 2 have been revealed.
Writer and director Neil Druckmann, along with co-game directors Anthony Newman and Kurt Margenau, shared new information about the highly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive during an E3 Coliseum panel, hosted by IGN’s own Lucy O’Brien. Margenau noted that the game’s new and improved traversal and stealth mechanics that allow Ellie to interact with the environment in a much deeper way than the first game add an extra sense of realism to the experience.
Ellie’s ability to move around the environment will be key to survival. A jump button is included this time around and the new dodge mechanic shown off in the recently released gameplay demo is an important part of the combat.
