It seems that Naughty Dog and Sony are willing to take away the bad taste in our mouths that the recent internet leaks of the plot and a good amount of images from ‘The Last of Us II’ left us just a few days ago. For starters, just over a week ago, a definitive release date for this exclusive PlayStation 4 was announced: June 19. To follow, Naughty Dog has confirmed that the game is already Gold.
And finally, we have a new trailer. A small teaser promised, in Ellie’s voice (remember, 19 years old, seven after the events of the first part), a story of revenge and the completion of a search that started long ago. The new trailer does not expand that information too much (luckily, after the last spoiler festivals), but it does allow us to intuit that the story that is going to be told this time is going to be considerably darker and darker than that of the first installment. .
The new trailer for The Last of Us II
From the little that can be intuited of the story, which we know is related to a cult of fans that our two post-apocalyptic adventurers stumble upon , you can guess that the protagonism this time will fall on Ellie’s shoulders. We can see a corpse of someone very dear, and how he embarks on a dark mission of revenge. The voice-over of an already very mature Joel, who warns him that there is no going back for certain acts, seems to reinforce this story.
As for the mechanics and the style of play, the trailer does not affect them too much, but it seems to be a firm heir to the style of play of its precedent. Stealth and frontal action phases, elements of terror and combat against humans , as well as solo sequences and with AI accompaniment are intuited .
Everything seems to indicate, reinforced by a spectacular graphic section that seems to show off the two Blu-Rays where it will be seated in its physical version, that this new adventure by Ellie and Joel will give fans of the first game everything they expect from them. .
