Potentially one of the most eagerly awaited games of 2019 next to Death Stranding (I'll get to that later)
Information has been pretty scarce thus far, what we do know is Ellie will be the main controllable character and the events take place just 5 years after The Last of Us 1. Joel is still alive, which more of Troy Baker's brilliant acting (his accent is incredible). How much of Joel is in the game we don't know, as in the gameplay trailer he doesn't really make an appearance.
There is currently no release date, previous trends imply the summer but from discussions on other game boards and other speculation we should be grateful if we even see it this year. Personally looking forward to the return of the multiplayer mode, dunno how many people played it on the first one but it was definitely unique and well put together. MP isn't confirmed yet but I should think given the age of "social club" based multiplayer modes and Naughty Dog making blatant notes from Rockstar's style of games, it is likely we'll see one.
I have been waiting for the game since I had seen the trailer for the first time. I haven't played the first part yet - I wanna play both of them consistently. So I'm waiting for part 2 with double enthusiasm.
