PGW 2017: The Last of Us Part II Gets a Dark New Trailer

October 30, 2017Written by Chandler Wood

Here you go PlayStation gamers! We’ve been waiting for more information since it was first announced at last year’s PlayStation Experience, and we’ve finally got another trailer for The Last of Us Part II. Go ahead and watch it, I’ll wait.

This trailer shows a very dark new world, highlighting that the human element seems to be far more dangerous than the infected, which weren’t shown until the very end of the trailer. A seemingly religious cult is tortutring and killing those who they deem to be “apostate,” going as far as to hang some of them while cutting into their stomachs and breaking another girl’s arm with a hammer. The trailer doesn’t show Joel or Ellie, but Neil Druckman is remaining silently coy on the who, what, where, and when of the characters featured.

In the interview below, Neil Druckman talks about how The Last of Us Part II will use a further evolved engine that is the next iteration beyond Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Druckman also talks about how The Last of Us is an ensemble story about many characters and this world that they live in, and the trailer above gives a glimpse into the kind of story that they are looking to tell with this follow up to The Last of Us.

Understandably, details are still quite scarce, but there’s a chance we could still hear more from Naughty Dog at December’s PlayStation Experience.

Stay tuned for more news out of Paris Games Week 2017, as the week is just getting started.
