Wolfenstein: Youngblood features two female playable characters, Jessica and Sophia, the twin daughters of the protagonists from the previous game, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The game can be played in single player or co-op mode, but we don’t know much about the gameplay just yet. Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be released in 2019, pending an official date.
The Last of Us Part II features Ellie, one of the main characters from Part I, as it’s protagonist. The trailer highlights her lady love interest with as much importance as her ability to brutally dispense with her enemies. This incited a great response from fans who played The Last of Us: Left Behind, the DLC for Part I of the game which originally referenced Ellie’s sexual orientation. Despite this existing canon for her character, it was still met by criticism from some fans. There is no official release date for The Last of Us Part II as of yet, although it is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
