A Reference To The Iconic Sniping Gameplay Segment But It’s Different

There’s a similar sniping segment in the game, but the HBO series has several differences; it takes place at night and it has more action and explosions.

A Bloater

A bloater is a type of more powerful Infected in the games. This is the debut of the live-action version.

Sam Gets Infected And Henry Kills Himself

The same thing happens in the game, but in the game, Sam doesn’t tell Ellie about him getting bitten, so it was a surprise to Ellie when she woke up in the morning. In the HBO series, Sam even shows Ellie where he was bitten.
