At this year’s Playstation Experience, Sony unloaded all the trailers we could want. Aside from the new Uncharted game, it’s the one with Ellie strumming a melancholic song that is getting me excited.
Are you as keen as I am? I have loved Naughty Dog and their games for a long time now – since the original Crash Bandicoot. Now they are giving us a sequel to The Last of Us, a game that has really messed with my heartstrings: The Last of Us Part Two.
In the trailer we see an older and bloodied Ellie sitting on a bed, playing an acoustic guitar in a house filled with dead people. From what I can gather, Ellie and Joel are part of some group – perhaps the fireflies – and she wants to kill: “I’m going to find and kill every last one of them,” she says.
This 4 minute trailer is beautiful, setting up a great premise for the next game which looks to be a harrowing and emotional ride. With Ashley Johnson (Ellie’s voice actor) singing us a lovely song throughout the cinematic, it’s safe to say I am unbelievably hyped for this.
No release date has been announced as of yet.
