Active discussion of The Last of Us Part II has been simmering for several months. It all started with the leak of materials with important plot spoilers. A recent release only added fuel to the fire – users destroyed the game rating on Metacritic. And there was a new reason to criticize the developers from Naughty Dog. As it turned out, the Studio has revealed in one of the trailers of the project, edited the point that in the final version The Last of Us Part II looks different.
On the material there are plot spoilers.
Substitution found edition Kotaku, posted on its YouTube channel comparing the above-mentioned scenes from the trailer and the game. We are talking about the episode where Ellie is hiding from enemies, and suddenly, her mouth closes a hand. In the promotional video shows that it was Joel, and in the final version of the game – Jesse, a friend of the main character. The protagonist of The Last of Us couldn’t be present in that scene, because he died almost in the beginning of the narrative of the sequel.
Users like this move by Naughty Dog did not like. They felt that a demonstration of Joel in the trailer gives the wrong idea about the plot. From this scene it is easy to conclude that the main characters of the first part will once again travel together. The following are examples of a few comments under the video Kotaku.
Batman: “False advertising“.
Mohammad Mureeh: “is misleading. If they wanted to keep the effect of the plot twist, it would show [in the trailer] another scene. It’s simple. Although the game is somehow bad“.
Edskt: “I’m disappointed“.
&Ö& Paneristi: “Lured and changed [the scene]. Is it possible to sue Naughty Dog for false advertising?“
