The Last of Us Live Performance Included Previously Unseen Epilogue
The Last of Us: One Night Live was used to reveal a cut epilogue for the game.
Set several years after the game’s official ending the epilogue began with Joel and Ellie now living in Tommy’s community at the dam. Joel is now dating a woman named Esther while Ellie, traumatized by the events of the game, is till behaving distant and somewhat depressed. Joel gives Ellie a guitar which he promises to teach her how to play and the two crack a joke before Joel leaves. The epilogue closes with Ellie strumming her guitar.
According to fans in attendance, the sequence was acted out by the game’s voice cast similarly to the show prior. Druckmann, in turn, that this would be the only time the epilogue would ever be performed and asked those in attendance to refrain from recording the epilogue on their phones. Thus far it would seem that the audience honored his wishes as we haven’t been able to find any recordings of the epilogue. That said, the performance prior was streamed and is now available to watch in full at various online venues.
