Overall, it is estimated that The Last of Us 2’s main story would be about twenty-five hours, almost double that of Uncharted 4. Below is the release date reveal trailer:

This gameplay sequence gives us a look at Ellie’s daily routine while she is trying to survive in the wild. To defeat enemies, she would have to acquire the right balance between stealth and all-out attack, as one can’t just sneak past everything. This type of gameplay cannot be done by Joel – it is tailored to Ellie as she has a more agile build. With stealth, Ellie can sneak between areas, gather weapons from bodies and take down enemies by surprise.

The Last of Us 2's gameplay is somewhat different from that of its prequel, however, its quality is not something to be doubted. The sequel brings back many old creatures from The Last of Us along with a few new ones, with more complex mechanics and challenging gameplay.
