While it may not come as a big surprise, Naughty Dog has seemingly confirmed what many already thought: when The Last of Us Part II releases, Ellie will be the only playable character. We crafted a molotov cocktail full of questions and threw it directly at co-game directors Kurt Margenau and Anthony Newman at E3, and the details they provided gave us some answers we'd been hoping for long before the PlayStation E3 2018 presentation. She's had a chance to be a teenager and forge lasting relationships.
The action sequence ends with a machete to the throat as the visual fades back to the dance with Ellie's love interest.
Dina then comes up to Ellie, and the two share a conversation and a kiss before the story trailer seamlessly blends into a look at gameplay.
In The Last of Us Part II, Ellie is now 19 and has found a semblance of peace and normality living in Jackson. 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.
While Joel was the playable character in the first game, Ellie is the lead playable character for the sequel. It took place in a dance hall that looked like the hall in which the actual E3 2018 Sony briefing was held.
