The Last of Us Part III is not only in development, but Naughty Dog is planning to introduce at least five new characters in the game, according to a new leak that appeared over the weekend. They comprise Lucas, Mason, Val, Ezra, and Gracie, all of whom are said to belong to a group called the “scavengers.” DanielRPK, who leaked the supposed info, also suggests that Ellie will have an important role in the new game, although there’s no word yet whether Abby is also set to return.

According to DanielRPK, Lucas is an “affable” character who “develops a relationship with another young scavenger and will have a turn to show his dark side”. This younger scavenger could perhaps be Gracie, who is said to be between the ages of 18-25.

Mason, meanwhile, is a “former soldier” who must “choose between his loyalty” to other characters in the group when “Val gets put in charge” (with Val being the alleged leader of this group of survivors).

Finally, Ezra appears to be some sort of antagonist, with DanielRPK reporting that they want to “take over the house from Val”.

As for returning characters, fellow leaker ViewerAnon stated that Ellie will be “at least as important” in Part 3 as she was in The Last of Us Part 2. There has been no word, as yet, on whether Abby and Lev will return for the next instalment of the series.
