The latest addition is Shamblers, a special type of infected character which would have a large role in The Last of Us Part 2 story. Here are more details on the gameplay and release date of ‘The Last of Us Part 2’ and working methodology for Shamblers and intelligent NPC enemies.
The Last of Us Part 2 Gameplay: Shambles will be Hard to Kill
The confirmed addition in part 2 of The Last of Us game franchise are Shamblers. Fans would love the fact that Naughty Dog has planned very crucially about the new creatures and it won’t be just a regular enemy horde. Shamblers in ‘The Last of Us’ sequel will also move the plot for the ever-evolving zombie-filled post-apocalyptic franchise further.
Naughty Dog vice president and director for the second game Neil Druckmann have explained that Shamblers will give an insight to the players that how various stages of infection works and how far the mutation has evolved from the first game.
The Shamblers will make the game more challenging and strategic as they can release gaseous acid which can reduce Ellie’s ability to see and even burn her skin. Hence, it won’t be possible to kill them just by mindless attacks, one has to overcome blinding gas cloud and sneak attack them.
The Last of Us Part 2 Gameplay: Intelligent NPCs will Play Mind Games
Ellie will also meet several human NPC characters in The Last of Us Part 2 and unlike other games, they won’t be just mindless repetitive creatures and will have the intelligence of their own. Naughty Dog has made the NPC interaction much more realistic and they will play with Ellie’s emotions by crying and calling out their family members when she attacks them.
The creators plan to treat violence in a very realistic way and hence Ellie will also see and hear the family and friends of the NPCs grieving when they are about to die. The Last of Us Part 2 will release exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 4 on May 29, 2020.
