If you've completed Naughty Dog's masterful The Last Of Us , you know how it ended. But as is often the case when conceiving of and writing a story, things change over time.
The developer has released an image of an alternate ending for the game; creative director Neil Druckmann Tweeted : "See how it originally ended." It seems to be a picture of Joel tied to a chair, and a woman is threatening him with a knife. That woman looks a little like Tess, doesn't it…?
We'll learn more about the other endings the team considered during a PAX Prime panel next month. Druckmann has said they thought about "three or four ideas" for the game's climax before they settled on the best possible option. Here's a line from the panel's description, which should intrigue you:
"But really, Neil and Bruce will pull back the curtain to show you their original pitch for The Last of Us… and giving everyone at this panel a look at how close or far the final game ended up from the original pitch."
The Last Of Us tells a great story. I thought the ending was fantastic. But what else might they have done…?
