To deal with these threats Ellie will be more agile in moving on the battlefield with respect to Joel. In addition, the spaces will be larger and it will be possible to adopt different approaches to overcome adversity. A great novelty of the second chapter is it "Analog stealth", staying hidden for example in tall grass will not automatically give you the security of never being tracked down. It is up to the player to decide whether to kill everyone or sneak out without being seen.
Naughty Dog was very clear in this: all areas (except infected) can be overcome without killing any enemies. The latter are not unprepared however, from the trailers you can see how they interact with each other to capture Ellie, even using dogs (new in this chapter) to sniff out his position. All characters have relationships with teammates, which will allow them to react differently to what happens on screen.

We continue the guide talking about the progression system of The Last of Us Part 2. In the course of the adventure Ellie can become stronger and learn new skills. It is also possible to customize weapons and craft useful items with resources obtained by exploring the map.

From what we have been able to see, the exploration will be assisted by various means, such as mounts or boats, or thanks to some useful tools such as a rope. However, it will not be possible to upgrade Ellie to the maximum in a single run, a factor that could push you to replay the title from the beginning. On the other hand they are also confirmed different selectable difficulties, just like the ones featured in The Last of Us. This way you can decide if you prefer a light approach to enjoy the story, or a challenge that will push you to the limit.
