Sony has released a brand new extended commercial for The Last of Us Part II which focuses a lot on Ellie as she sings by a fire with action shots spliced in to show two different sides to her. The full trailer is around a minute long but if you want to avoid even the smallest footage from the game then you should exit this article now. For the rest of you click play and enjoy.
Jim has been spending time with The Last of Us Part II for review and has wrote some impressions about the gameplay. They are spoiler free and you can see what he wrote below:
This is by far Naughty Dog’s best-looking game to date. Next to Uncharted 4 the two appear evenly matched in terms of visual fidelity when comparing still images, but that four year gap has allowed them to flex, especially when it comes to character animations and the sheer amount of tiny details. If bloody violence is your bag, you’ll revel in how enemies can be torn apart, limbs flying and heads bursting like watermelons.
In short, Naughty Dog have made sensible yet inventive refinements to that core gameplay from The Last of Us. What’s particularly interesting as a fan of their work is seeing how design choices from Uncharted have clearly bled into Part II, lending that same degree of immersion of experimentation that manages to feel fresh and original.
