It finally happened! The Last of Us was not only one of the best games of the last console generation, but of all time. With great characters, great graphics, cinematic excellence and a haunting atmosphere rivaling any game ever, it was a defining video game experience in a year packed with amazing titles such as Bioshock: Infinite and Grand Theft Auto V. Clamor for a sequel has raged ever since. Naughty Dog delivered at The Playstation Experience 2016 in the form of a trailer for The Last of Us: Part Two.
Taking place well considerably after the first game’s ambiguous ending, the highly anticipated sequel continues the journey of Ellie and Joel. The trailer features an older Ellie tuning a guitar before singing “Through the Valley” by Shawn James and the Shapeshifters in a dilapidated house filled with dead bodies. Joel enters the house and makes his way upstairs to her, where he asks about her willingness towards some plan. Ellie responds that “she’s gonna find and she’s gonna kill every last one of them.”
Check out The Last of Us: Part Two’s amazing trailer below:
The theories have already started flying around, but one thing lies beyond doubt; this looks incredible. Graphically it is everything you’ve come to expect from Naughty Dog. The voice acting sounds great. The cinematic feel again appears impeccable. Few video game developers have earned the level of trust in their product as Naughty Dog, and this trailer gives yet another reason why. They knock it out of the park just about every single time, and look to have done us again here.
