Naughty Dog has debuted a new trailer for The Last of Us 2, and as you might expect it’s suitably tense. While there are appearances by the infected, the majority of the trailer deals with violence between ordinary people, and it looks like it’s taking an emotional toll on Ellie.
In the trailer, we see how the years of hardship and survival have affected Ellie, who is covered in scars and cuts on her back and has turned into a formidable fighter. She interacts with Joel on several occasions in the trailer and sees some truly gruesome imagery. This includes a body riddled with arrows, as well as several people suspended from nooses in a shopping mall. Ellie is no stranger to violence, herself, attacking someone off-screen with a melee weapon as the trailer cuts to black.
The Last of Us 2 is coming on June 19 to PlayStation 4. The new release date was given after an indefinite delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Fellow PS4-exclusive Ghost of Tsushima was given a July release date at the same time, a delay of a month as it was previously scheduled for June.
Unfortunately the pending release of TLOU 2 has been overshadowed in recent days by plot spoilers that leaked online, prompting a response from Naughty Dog. Sony has confirmed the leaker wasn’t affiliated with either Naughty Dog or Sony proper, but declined to give further details in the ongoing investigation. For its part, Naughty Dog’s statement promised, “No matter what you see and hear, the final experience will be worth it.”
