Ellie could have an NPC companion of her personal in The Final of Us Half II
From tag-along to main the cost, Ellie’s maturation from The Final of Us to Half II means she’s totally able to dealing with her personal. (Though, the unique Final of Us left little question as as to whether she may fend for herself.) In Half II, Ellie could have her personal sidekick.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, director Neil Druckmann confirmed a non-playable companion for The Final of Us Half II. “Nicely, so, Ellie was an NPC, however she’s the protagonist on this story, so the participant is controlling Ellie. Umm, it is protected to say with the sport that we made prior to now that there shall be some NPC with you on this story, though we’re not displaying [the NPC] on this demo,” Druckmann stated.
He continued “And our common strategy is to say, once more, ‘How can we deal with them like folks? How can we get them to behave actually as these folks? How can we give them fascinating traits in order that they will navigate the world, make significant actions, and shock you in the way in which folks do?'”
The connection between Joel and Ellie in The Final of Us is what made that sport such an emotional rollercoaster. It might’ve by no means reached these heights had Ellie not spent the vast majority of the sport as an NPC. The 2 always relied on one another and that solely strengthened their bond. That is what raised the stakes at any time when issues received dicey. Count on one thing comparable out of Half II, even when it is not rooted in paternal/maternal safety.
