This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise but The Last of Us Part II will be at E3 2018. The news was confirmed by Neil Druckmann during a PlayStation Experience 2017 panel. We just saw the game at Paris Games Week last month, and now we know that players will get to see even more midway through next year.
Check out The Last of Us Part II E3 2018 announcement below:
In case you missed it, check out the Paris Games Week 2017 The Last of Us Part II trailer as well. Here are some additional details on the divisive trailer:
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.
The Last of Us Part II is currently in development exclusively for PlayStation 4.
