The Last of Us Part 2 – Secret Easter Egg Discovered
Video game Easter eggs have remained a staple in development since the release of Adventure in 1976. Since then, programmers have enjoyed leaving hints and secret references to other games and pop culture in their work. On Wednesday, fans of Naughty Dog’s upcoming The Last of Us Part 2 discovered a rather unique Easter egg during the latest Sony State of Play.
Nostalgic remains one of the most powerful influences in video games. Fans yearn for subtle anecdotes to history and pop culture, and the discovery of these developer secrets normally sets the internet ablaze. Wednesday was no exception as Sony’s latest “State of Play” had a startling revelation about The Last of Us Part 2.
While we are unsure who Ellie attacks in the aforementioned clip, one thing is for certain: the victim is holding a PlayStation Vita while music from Hotline Miami drips in the background. Ellie searches for a girl named Nora as she rips the headphones from her victims earlobes. A knife fight ensues with Ellie ultimately gaining the upper hand and killing her prey.
Although it is unclear why Naughty Dog included a Devolver Digital reference in the upcoming Last of Us Part 2, the 1980s reference was trending on social media throughout the day. With less than four weeks remaining until release, fans are now more anxious than ever to dive into Naughty Dog’s latest masterpiece. The Last of Us Part 2 releases on June 19, 2020 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
