In the PlayStation State of Play, a new Last of Us Part II trailer was revealed. It had a lot to show, but we finally have a release date.
The Last of Us Part II will debut February 21, 2020.
The trailer showed off more of the story, in which Elli loses her lover to a group of what appear to be bandits. It’s implied they belong to a larger organization, as Elli leaves safety to exact her revenge. We were given glimpses into combat, new clicker variants (giants completely covered in fungus), and the return of Joel, looking gray-haired and world weary. The game looks stunning, and it’s apparent Naughty Dog have been pouring their heart and soul into this sequel. If Part II is anything like the first game (and this trailer is anything to go by), Part II will be a dark game where the humans are worse than the monsters they are trying to survive. Expect gruesome combat, difficult choices for our main cast to work through, and a whole lot of depressing events. All of which playable on February 21, 2020.
You know, exactly what fans would want out of The Last of Us Part II. We’ll share more info as it comes, but for now we at least know when the damn thing is dropping.
