Naughty Dog: Gamers Will See How TLoU Originally Ended
If you've completed Naughty Dog's masterful The Last Of Us, you know how it ended. But as is often the case when conceiving of and writing a story, things change over time.
The developer has released an image of an alternate ending for the game; creative director Neil Druckmann Tweeted: "See how it originally ended." It seems to be a picture of Joel tied to a chair, and a woman is threatening him with a knife. That woman looks a little like Tess, doesn't it...?
We'll learn more about the other endings the team considered during a PAX Prime panel next month. Druckmann has said they thought about "three or four ideas" for the game's climax before they settled on the best possible option. Here's a line from the panel's description, which should intrigue you:
"But really, Neil and Bruce will pull back the curtain to show you their original pitch for The Last of Us… and giving everyone at this panel a look at how close or far the final game ended up from the original pitch."
The Last Of Us tells a great story. I thought the ending was fantastic. But what else might they have done...?
