Probably the biggest announcement at PlayStation Experience was the reveal of a sequel to The Last of Us, the critically acclaimed action-adventure, survival horror originally released on the PS3; you can read our review here.

Naughty Dog has confirmed that Ellie, now aged 19, will be the lead playable character in the sequel and not Joel. The game’s theme revolves around hate; as Joel walks into a house filled with dead bodies, he finds Ellie sitting on a bed and singing whilst playing an acoustic guitar. He asks her if she is ‘really going through with this’ in which she swears revenge as a response.

Some may find a sequel quite controversial as the ending to the first game was seen as so good that it could be difficult for a sequel to live up to it’s standards. However, no release date was given.
