So, let’s talk about it!
There’s no denying the game looks AMAZING. I’d say it’s on par with the last PlayStation Experience trailer but I’m not completely sure. Guess i’ll have to wait for the 4K trailer to find out.
The trailer leads us to believe something’s gonna happen to Ellie’s girlfriend Dinah and that’s why she’s on this quest of hate and revenge. There’s a shot of Ellie naked from the waist up leading me to believe she may have been sexually assaulted after they killed her girlfriend. This would be reason enough but I have to remember trailers are manipulative so who knows what’s true but this is easily deductible from the trailer.
There’s also another shot of Ellie wearing a gas mask when near some spores which I find weird since she’s immune.
Tommy is still around and looks to be very important to the story.
In the end we see Joel telling her “you think I’d let you do this on your own”. I hope he’s actually alive and not just in her head. After all, we haven’t really seen a whole lot of Joel in the other trailers and in the first trailer reveal for the sequel Joel is seen come out of a while light which a lot of people interpret as him being dead.
Anyways, what you guys think?
