To kick of Sony’s E3 2018 showcase, a new trailer for developer Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II was shown. The trailer begins with a cinematic, which then segues into our very first look at gameplay footage.
And brutal gameplay footage it is, as you’d expect from the game. In it Ellie finds herself dealing with a swarm of enemies, utilizing stealth, improvisation, and straight-up blunt force as she moves through the environment trying to survive the nasty encounter.
The gameplay trailer is nearly 12 glorious minutes long, and you can watch every second of it below right now.
Another Piece of the Puzzle
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.
Weâ€™re sure you have many questions after watching this scene. Weâ€™re also pretty sure that weâ€™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 Joelâ€™s next story.
For now weâ€™re keeping mum, but weâ€™re excited to see what yâ€™all make of this piece of the puzzle.
With all of Naughty Dog working on The Last of Us Part II, weâ€™re making great headway into the project. From art, technology, gameplay, and story, this is by far our most ambitious game yet.
Youâ€™re in for an intense, beautiful, harrowing, and emotionally moving ride. Weâ€™re extremely proud of the game weâ€™re crafting and canâ€™t wait to show you even more â€“ and we promise you wonâ€™t have to wait as long for the next big reveal!
