Sony has revealed a new character players can expect to see next year in Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us. Her name is Tess, and she is a black market negotiator who is a longtime partner of main protagonist Joel. Described as “strong, smart, and street-savvy”, Tess is an expert at concocting plans to secure the contraband she and our hero need.
Tess will be portrayed by 24 actress Annie Wersching, both through voice acting and motion-captured animation. Sony has released a behind-the-scenes video showing a conversation between her and Joel, from the live actors’ performance to the final ingame rendering. You can check it out below.
The Last of Us is currently scheduled for release on May 7, 2013. We will keep you updated as more media rolls out.
