It has been five years since Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us ripped out our hearts and left us emotional wrecks in the wake of Joel and Ellie’s story of survival in a world filled with monsters–both human and flesh-eating. After winning over 240 Game of the Year awards, The Last of Us has secured its place as one of the best video game stories ever created, and we’re ready to jump back in to the fungus-infested world of Joel and Ellie. At their annual E3 press conference on Monday evening, Sony capitalized on the hype for Part II with a first-look at gameplay from the hotly anticipated sequel since its initial announcement in 2016 and the bone-chilling trailer from earlier this year.
We will learn more about The Last of Us Part II this week at E3, so stay tuned for updates. In the meantime, watch this trailer and think about someone you love.
