Before the game was released I assumed that Tess was an ***hole who would cause nothing but trouble and complaints for Joel. I was pleasently surprised to find that I liked her character, as they made her a part of the overall emotional journey. This "alternate ending" picture does fit into what I originally got a vibe of, so now I wonder less if it was just me, and more if Tess was originally being marketed (via screenshots, vid clips, article blurbs) as the antagonist?
The ending isn't changing, and this isn't turning into a Mass Effect. Druckmann has actually talked about this alternate ending in an Escapist artist here:
remember all those fake spoilers about them getting caught by the main antagonist...?
guess the were true. but they were about the original ending XD
I don't remember those
I do however remember pretty much every single spoiler that fadi posted being true. lol. Just, in different contexts than I imagined.
