A small detail discovered by a fan of The Last of Us Part II revealed that one of our actions is capable of to change slightly, on some occasions, the cutscene with protagonist Ellie, slightly modifying its appearance.
Despite being a game with one narrative already decided, some small details of The Last of Us Part II it takes into account the choices made by the players.
We had already had the opportunity to observe the example in a particular dialogue, where the way we use Ellie changes her tone of voice.
Even the encounter with the first Stalker can end differently, if the player already knows what is going to happen and yes prepare for the occasion.
In this case, the Reddit user sub2pewd1epie he discovered a detail which he himself basically defines “uselessBut interesting nonetheless, since he only managed to find out after 200 hours of game.
If the player can find a way to stop the animation where Ellie lowers the hood, this will remain worn during the next cutscene.
As a result, you will see Ellie with the hood raised during the cutscenes where it was expected to be previously lowered, thus modifying the scene, albeit in a small part.
In the comments other fans explain that the reason so it happens is very simple: the cutscenes of The Last of Us Part II take place directly in-game, unlike the first chapter which loaded pre-rendered video files.
Consequently, if we interrupt an action that should take place before the cutscene officially starts, our operation it will reflect also in the movie visible in-game.
In order for Ellie to remain with the hood up, it will therefore be necessary to quickly take an action that is able to stop her, such as a dodge or quickly use the knife.
This is certainly a very interesting detail, of which many players were not aware: whether it was an effect wanted or not by Naughty Dog, it remains a makeup very interesting to change Ellie’s appearance within some cutscenes.
The Last of Us Part II therefore it continues to hide secrets, despite the many months since the original release: we just have to find out if the community, particularly attentive to details, will soon be able to discover new details.
In the first The Last of Us a preview of one of the locations we would see in the sequel would be hidden: the secret was hidden in a painting in Joel’s room.
In a document leaked on the web, it seems that despite the incredible attention to detail reserved for the game, the Xbox team was not particularly satisfied by the fights, which were even defined as indecent.
