The Last of Us: Part II has been attracting criticism for its violence ever since its Paris Games Week trailer past year, and this week's E3 2018 demo prompted a similar backlash. But now we have an intimate exchange between the game's main character and another woman, and it's played out in front of a massive, mainstream gaming audience. She is on a path towards finding peace in her world-but it doesn't last.

We've been teased with a breath taking reveal trailer of The Last Of Us Part 2, with Ellie killing it on a guitar, then teased again with the more elusive, mystery-surrounding trailer featuring *ahem* Ellie's mum. Oddly enough, Joel - the previous game's protagonist - has not appeared in the game yet. We crafted a molotov cocktail full of questions and threw it directly at co-game directors Kurt Margenau and Anthony Newman at E3, and the details they provided gave us some answers we'd been hoping for long before the PlayStation E3 2018 presentation. Woodward and Ashley Johnson, who voices Ellie, recreated the scene in real life at the Sony E3 2018 briefing.

After some light disembowelment, the game goes into the usual The Last of Us stealth gameplay, confirming Ellie to be at least playable.
