The Last of Us New Character Details
Sony has new details on Tess from The Last of Us. According to a post on the Playstation Blog, Tess is Joel’s partner and is played by former 24 actress Annie Wersching.
“A hardened survivor living in one of the last remaining quarantine zones, Tess operates in the black market of a city under martial law,” Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli explains in the post. “Partners with Joel, they have become known within the criminal underworld for their ruthlessness. Street smart and confident, Tess is a savvy strategist and negotiator. Her ability to generate intelligent plans to secure the contraband for their trade is second to none.”
“Tess and Joel subscribe to the same dog-eat-dog philosophy,” Monacelli continues. “They survive by being willing to do what others can’t or won’t. Her trust in and loyalty towards Joel runs deep. However, secretly, she questions whether Joel shares the same emotions that she feels for him.”
Tess was shown off in The Last of Us trailer at the VGAs.
