You're going to want to make sure you take care of your boats and horses in The Last of Us Part 2's massive environments.


Developer Naughty Dog unveiled some new information about The Last of Us Part 2 in today's State of Play livestream. During the showcase, director Neil Druckmann confirmed that the upcoming sequel features "some of the largest environments" Naughty Dog has ever created.

While talking over various gameplay sequences before showing off an extended look at The Last of Us Part 2, Druckmann divulged some interesting tidbits about the sequel and its world. He confirmed that Ellie can perform various traversal movements--including climbing, jumping, swinging from ropes, and swimming--while exploring a dilapidated Seattle and other locations "previously unexplored" in the game's universe. These additional traversal mechanics will allow you to discover new areas, resources, and side missions.
