Canines In The Last Of Us 2, Friend or Foe?

While it’s certainly not confirmed but it does seem like, we just might see Canines being featured in The Last Of Us 2. Apparently its pretty much a rumor at bay, but can be treated as something that just might turn out to be true because this rumor does seem to originate from the one and only, Neil Druckmann. So Canines In The Last Of Us 2? Well, this might be a pretty interesting addition to the game.

As mentioned before, this news apparently originated after the director of the game, Neil Druckmann recently made an interesting Tweet from his official Twitter account. He posted his photo, in which he is accompanied by a dog in a mocap suit.

While he did not say anything other than the caption “#YearOfTheDog”, he was wearing the shirt, which has The Last of Us written on it. So of course speculations have been through the roof following the post. Most of the fans are of the opinion that this just might be a tease that implies, who the NPC companion will be in the game.

Still considering the known hostility of the game, it does seem a bit odd, perhaps they are in the game but just may not be as friendly as we expect them to be. All that is mere speculation for now but one thing is for sure and that’s the fact that Naughty Dog, won’t be mocapping dogs for no reason.

Adding to that, we all are aware that Druckmann has the tendency, as well as the audacity to pull such kind of stunts. So we fans have a valid reason to expect Canines In The Last Of Us 2.

Having said that, the hostility in The Last Of Us 2 seems to have been taken up a notch. According to Druckmann, the violence in the game will have a different take towards the audience, it won’t be just for fun, in fact, it would create really engaging moments for players. Perhaps we shall see, how engaging the violence is in the game, soon enough.
