Naughty Dog’s ‘The Last of Us 2’ Going RPG? ‘TLOU 2’ Might Have ‘Mass Effect’ Style
The trailer of Naughty Dog’s “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” has featured a dialogue option for players to choose what to answer or what to do. Will this be the style of “The Last of Us 2”?
While official confirmation is yet to be given about “The Last of Us” sequel regarding its development and release date, there are speculations that made rounds over the net recently, saying it might feature dialogue options too.
In the “Uncharted 4” trailer (which by the way is anything but awesome), it featured a 5-minute long reunion scene of Nathan “Nate” Drake (voiced by Nolan North) and his older brother Sam Drake (voiced by Troy Baker).
When Sam asked Nathan to tell him the best part that has happened in his life, fans could see around 2:53 minutes three dialogue options: “I found El Dorado”; “I explored Shambhala”; and “I discovered Iram of the Pillars.”
Moviepilot noted that this type of feature was a bit unusual for Naughty Dog, Inc., who is set to release “The Last of Us 2,” to include.
Further, the feature is commonly found in RPG games and, so far, the company has not inserted it in some of their previous bestselling game titles: “Uncharted” and “The Last of Us.”
Inserting this feature in the “Uncharted 4” or “The Last of Us 2” (if they ever release it) would give readers the feel of playing the likes of “Mass Effect,” which its progression depended on a player’s choices in certain dialogues or situations.
There were assumptions though that perhaps majority of “Uncharted 4” might not have this feature. However, it was quite weird for some why would Naughty Dog include this option in “Uncharted 4.”
Is this some type of the company’s foreshadowing for “The Last of Us” sequel?
No one knows. However, it could be noted that not all trailers of Naughty Dog, Inc. games should be trusted. This is because Neil Druckmann previously said some trailers were deceptive in order to keep fans guessing, Power Up Gaming reported.
Still, deceptive or not, including a dialogue option for “The Last of Us 2” would definitely give a different gaming experience.
But for the meantime, fans should take them with a grain of salt.
