Naughty Dog's brilliant game masterpiece "The Last of Us" has earned a lot of praise from many gamers, including high reviews from Gamespot and IGN. It set a new standard on how game developers should communicate with gamers with powerful storytelling and effective character narrative.

Since then, fans of "The Last of Us" have clamored for a new chapter in the lives of two individuals in a post apocalyptic North America. Joel and Ellie (the game's main protagonists) have already put us in an emotional rollercoaster that depicts what's it like to live in a post apocalyptic world.

According to Trusted Reviews, the game still has no release date because Naughty Dog is still in the early stages of development. With the release of the game's official trailer days ago, we were greeted by an angrier version of Ellie as she looks like a character from the Walking Dead.

Aside from resembling an angsty teenager, Naughty Dog has also released a new artwork that features Ellie's new tattoo. In a post by Gamespot, Tattoo artist Natalie Hall designed the female protagonist's tattoo and hand her hands scanned for the close up shot of Ellie playing the guitar in the "The Last of Us Part II's" announcement trailer.

In a statement by the game's director, Neil Druckmann, gamers will be playing a 19-year-old Ellie in a story driven by hate. By any sentiments, Ellie's angry persona in the announcement trailer seems to say a lot about the game's overall narrative. Gustavo Santaolalla is returning to write music for the "The Last of Us Part II."

Fans will be expecting a lot of things from "The Last of Us" sequel. The new game will probably feature more horrifying enemies, a completely new setting and dialogue choices similar to "Uncharted 4." We might also have to defeat a real human threat like what is shown in Fox's "The Walking Dead" series.
