We are a few weeks away from the launch of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II after Creative Director, Neil Druckmann confirmed the game had gone gold. In a new story trailer released on YouTube, we see a dark and violent story which gives an insight of what is to come for Ellie and Joel.
The Last of Us Part II is the sequel to the 2013 award-winning The Last of Us. The sequel follows five years after what happened in the first game. Ellie and Joel have settled down in Jackson, Wyoming. Living amongst a thriving community of survivors has allowed them peace and stability, despite the constant threat of the infected and other, more desperate survivors.
When a violent event disrupts that peace, Ellie embarks on a relentless journey to carry out justice and find closure. As she hunts those responsible one by one, she is confronted with the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.
Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann calls it “the most ambitious game we’ve ever made”. The game is out on June 19 after a couple of delays here and there. Be sure to avoid spoilers from the leaks that originated online last month.
