The Last of Us 2 – Naughty Dog’s Most Mature Game Yet

So it’s no secret that the original Last of Us wasn’t exactly a child’s fairy tale. With children dying, people turning on each other, and all that gore the game got a pretty solid M rating so we don’t expect the sequel to be any different. But it seems that Naughty Dog is pushing that rating even further with the second installment.

The Last of Us 2 won’t be shying away from disturbingly realistic depictions of violence. As the game does revolve around the cycle of revenge. However, this game will also be exploring sexual content and nudity. Though as to how graphic it would be, is yet to be seen.

The summary of the game is as reads:

Five years after their dangerous journey across the post-pandemic United States, Ellie and Joel have settled down in Jackson, Wyoming. Living amongst a thriving community of survivors has allowed them peace and stability, despite the constant threat of the infected and other, more desperate survivors.

When a violent event disrupts that peace, Ellie embarks on a relentless journey to carry out justice and find closure. As she hunts those responsible one by one, she is confronted with the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.

Naughty Dog promises a mature story. A story that blurs the line between hero and villain as our protagonist Ellie makes decisions that puts her morality into question.

Experience the escalating moral conflicts created by Ellie’s relentless pursuit of vengeance. The cycle of violence left in her wake will challenge your notions of right versus wrong, good versus evil, and hero versus villain.

A Complex and Emotional Story

The gameplay is expected to be tense and dynamic. An action survival to be realistically detailed thanks to the newest iteration of the Naughty Dog engine.

Set out on Ellie’s journey, taking her from the peaceful mountains and forests of Jackson to the lush, overgrown ruins of greater Seattle. Encounter new survivor groups, unfamiliar and treacherous environments, and terrifying evolutions of the infected. Brought to life by the latest iteration of the Naughty Dog engine, the deadly characters and world are more realistic and meticulously detailed than ever before.
