Both the games are set in a pandemic-ravaged apocalyptic America where the deadly Cordyceps virus has turned a majority of the population into violent, mindless zombies. Released on June 19, “The Last of US Part II” has been described as “groundbreaking” for being a big-budget game from a major developer with multiple lead characters who are unconventional.
The sequel reminds us of that fateful event with Sam & Henry when Joel and Ellie meet the fellow survivors about halfway through the game.
The second game is played from the perspective of Ellie while in the first game you played as Joel.
Henry appeared as a survivor from Hartford and was fiercely protective about his older brother.
The gameplay variety, horror elements and all other features delivered a blockbuster gaming experience.
