The Last of Us: Part 2 Shines at Sony’s E3 Presentation

We got our first extended look at Naughty Dog’s next major title.

This latest look at The Last of Us: Part 2 is a perfect example of why surprise isn’t everything. We went into E3 2018 knowing full well that Naughty Dog will be showing this game off and it still delivered. The presentation at Sony’s press conference gave us a more in-depth look at what’s to come for Ellie, and perhaps Joel, in her next adventure, taking place years after the first game. To put it simply, The Last of Us: Part 2 is going to be good. Real good.

After the initial reveal and brutal cinematic trailer that followed, we were left with a lot of questions. The latest trailer gives us a little more and throws in a gameplay sequence, giving us a better feel for what Naughty Dog has in store for us. While the gameplay seems to have a similar feel to The Last of Us, we can see this follow-up has a more polished experience and some new wrinkles to keep things interesting. Let’s face it, though, we’re here for the phenomenal story and characters, which are certainly not going to be lacking one bit based on this trailer.

We don't yet know when you will be able to get your hands on The Last of Us: Part 2, but it will release for the PlayStation 4 exclusively. If quality titles like this do not sell you on Sony, we’re not sure what will! This is certainly a must-play in any case. Will you be getting your hands on this one? This author will certainly be picking this up day one. Let us know what you think of the latest trailer in the comments below.
