Sony opened their E3 conference by showing off The Last of Us Part II. The game looks stunning, showcasing the realistic graphical features we saw in Uncharted 4.

The first thing we saw was a cinematic where Ellie is attending a dance. While everyone has a fun time, she simply watches from the sidelines. A girl pulls her aside to dance and they share a kiss. The video immediately flashes to a much different Ellie, who is now in the forest being shot at by multiple enemies.

Sony showed off how the game plays in this segment. Ellie can stealth her way around enemies, hiding in bushes and ducking under cars. But the enemies aren’t completely fooled. One of them actually checks under the car and finds her. Ellie seems pretty brutal in this game, using everything to her advantage for a fluid combat experience. At one point, she grabs an arrow off of a dead body to craft an explosive arrow, using it to kill one enemy and disorient the others.

The gameplay trailer flashes back to the kissing scene at the dance to bring the video full circle. You can check it out in the video above!

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
