Paris Games Week 2017 is going on right now, and Sony shared some treats during their PlayStation showcase. This was headlined by a brand new trailer for a little game called The Last of Us Part II.
It’s no small tease of a trailer, either. Like the reveal trailer we saw almost one year ago now (has it been that long already?!) at PSX 2016, this new peek at the game is over four minutes long. In fact, it’s almost five minutes. Of course, it’s also another cinematic trailer. No gameplay just yet sadly.
You can check it out below, along with some brief character introductions for the new faces we’ll meet in the sequel.
Here’s more on the new trailer from creative director Neil Druckmann on the PlayStation Blog:
After nearly a year since our announcement that we’re working on The Last of Us Part II, we’re finally ready to reveal a bit more of the game. Above is an all-new in-game cutscene on the latest iteration of the Naughty Dog engine, running on a PlayStation 4 Pro. Enjoy!
At its core, The Last of Us is still very much about Ellie and Joel, but for this reveal, we wanted to showcase several new characters that are integral to their next journey. We’re sure you have many questions after watching this scene. We’re also pretty sure that we’re going to see all sorts of theories about whom these characters are, where and when this scene takes place, and how all of this fits into Ellie and Joel’s next story. For now we’re keeping mum, but we’re excited to see what y’all make of this piece of the puzzle.
With all of Naughty Dog working on The Last of Us Part II, we’re making great headway into the project. From art, technology, gameplay, and story, this is by far our most ambitious game yet. You’re in for an intense, beautiful, harrowing, and emotionally moving ride. We’re extremely proud of the game we’re crafting and can’t wait to show you even more – and we promise you won’t have to wait as long for the next big reveal!
Until next time, endure and survive!
