‘The Last of Us: Part II’ Trailer Revealed at the Playstation Experience

A trailer for Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us: Part II was released at the Playstation Experience and it looks absolutely amazing! It opens with Ellie’s shaking hand coming to a still as she then tunes and begins playing a guitar while singing a melancholy song. As she sings, a figure enters the house where she is playing and walks past several corpses, each one mutilated. As this figure comes to the room where she’s playing, it’s revealed from behind to be Joel, who asks if she’s serious about continuing her journey. She states with steadfast resolution, “I’m gonna find and I’m gonna kill every last one of them.

I honestly got chills seeing this. I played The Last of Us later than most people as I got the remastered version on the PS4 several months after it came out. But when I played it, I was drawn in deeper than pretty much any game I’ve ever played before. It was a magical experience, one that rarely happens and that should be appreciated when it does. It’s a story that is so rich and developed that it’s hard to imagine how a sequel could match up.

However, seeing Ellie a little bit older (but still voiced by Ashley Johnson) and hearing Troy Barker as Joel once again only inspires and excites. Naughty Dog has yet to release a game without an incredible story and considering the amount of eyes that are attached to this title, I doubt they’ll fail any time soon.

What are your thoughts of the trailer?

    OMG NO F’N WAY AHHHH ELLIE

  • Adam Clifton

    I was late to the game as well, playing the remastered version. This game definitely is one of the best ever made and I can’t wait to play the sequel

  • Hopefully this one will move at a slightly quicker pace than the first one. The most frustrating thing about the first one was how painfully slowly you could move IMHO.

    • PsychoMantis18

      Fuck that; added to the level of realism. Just suck in those gorgeous environments.

        I loved the clunkyness(done on purposive) and slow/heavy aiming and fighting. They made it feel so real.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Definitely felt different to playing Uncharted’s.

      • I’m afraid I found not being able to move more quickly quite gruelling. It made parts of the game really frustrating and a little boring, I am hoping this one allows you to at least move around more quickly.

    what makes this trailer IMO so good is the cheering/fan reaction when we see the 2 respective characters. i admit it gave me chills (in a good way of course!)! i also admit i’m from a generation who’s “hottest new” games were Ms. Packman, Qbert, Frogger and even Atari’s Pitfall and Space Invaders…so needless to say even though i bought a PS3 just over a year ago and it came with THE LAST OF US, i am still yet to get through even half of it. i mention Frogger, etc. because it was ONE JOYSTICK AND 1 BUTTON for firing guns/missiles! rather than today’s game controller thingy where you need 10 hands working said controller thingy just to move left/right/forward/etc./etc. LOL.

    yes, i feel idiotic and completely stupid because i just haven’t gotten that part down (apparently i’m not the most patient person ever. lol) and i’m still stuck down in those water tunnels/drainage tunnels in the LAST OF US game and that’s on the novice/easiest setting! i keep getting frustrated and just stop playing games altogether. lol.

      I take it you don’t want to seek help to get through it?

      • J Jett

        Stefan, do you mean professional help or …??? (just kidding. lol).

        i just need to try to get into gaming in general. when i bought the PS3 that came with LAST OF US, i also bought THE WALKING DEAD (Telltale) and DEAD ISLAND thinking playing the games would be as fun/non-stressful/easy to navigate through/etc. as it was WAY back a million years ago when i played my brother’s Nintendo system but i quickly learned that is not the case. lol. my bad. i just need to be patient when trying to get the hang of the gamepad (joy stick?) and to keep at it. 🙂

    • PsychoMantis18

      Did you grow up playing games or are you a newbie to the artform?

      • J Jett

        PsychoMantis18, growing up i enjoyed playing games (like the games i mentioned above) but they weren’t something i’d do very often (i’d usually spend most of my free time learning/playing bass guitar/keyboards/etc.). i think my family only had an Atari game system

        until my little brother was born and he (being the gamer in the family) had Nintendo. so my gaming experience is Atari and one or 2 games on Nintendo (like Super Mario Brothers 2). god, typing this out & reading what i wrote here i feel so freaking old. LOL.

        • PsychoMantis18

          Well I think it’s much harder for people who haven’t “grown-up” on a steady diet of VG’s to play a lot of the new stuff cause it’s become much more complicated than it use to be. Similar to how older-folk find stuff that seems so simple to our computer-gen so difficult and confusing. Hardwiring it into your brain in the developmental days probably helps. Good job giving it a crack though.

          Makes you feel any better, got a mate (25 at the time) I tried to force Half-Life 2 onto and he couldn’t manage to comprehend how to use the two analogue sticks to move and view, had difficulty leaving and entering rooms. One of the most shocking things these eyes have ever seen.

      J if you need help watch YouTube walk through videos, I’m a gamer so it comes naturally however you have to experience this game because it’s amazing! Just watch YouTube videos to help you if you need it, only if you really do so it doesn’t take away too much of the experience for u.

      • J Jett

        thanx Vic! i really appreciate your advice. 🙂

      • James Allard

        Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has a full “movie” version that is better than all of the Indiana Jones franchise entries (IMO). I use those things occasionally but only after I have died several times.

    • Adam Clifton

      The trick is try to avoid conflict with the Bloaters. They’re too nasty to take on

  • Michael Josef Kappel

    Two of the greatest games ever got sequel announcements this year(Red Dead Redemption 2 is the other) Fuuuuuuuuck yes! Once these two games come out and Game of Thrones ends, I’m down for the zombie apocalypse, there’s nothing else to experience.

  • Rohan Sorensen

    Sequel? Well, Joel’s dead.

      Why does a sequel seal that he dies? Lol

      • Ben Russell-Gough

        The meme appears to be that the only thing that could turn Ellie into a vengeance-crazed killing machine would be to lose Joel in tragic circumstances.

    • Trent Owens

      thats the first thing i thought lol

    • Adam Clifton

      I don’t remember him dying. Last thing I remember is that Joel was going to tell Ellie the truth about her would-be fatal operation would have worked to stop the plague, but chose not to

      • Rohan Sorensen

        It’s a joke. He is GOING to die.

  • Halloween_Vic

    When I saw this I got so Damm pumped!! Kinda unexpected but such an awesome reveal and tease!!! Ellie’s older so I’m excited to see where it continues, and I wonder what’s gonna happen to Joel. Either way with this and “Days Gone” on the way we got some awesome titles to look forward to.

    Is that an original song?
