The video also shed some light on The Last of Us Part II’s story and where you’ll go while playing through it. The game takes place many years after The Last of Us — Ellie is 19 now — and over the course of the game, you’ll explore a number of new locales. The video showed off one area, Seattle, where you’ll have to be on your guard against two warring factions in addition to the Infected.
The Infected look as scary as ever, and you’ll have to watch out for new types of creatures in The Last of Us Part II. One is a gross, pustule-covered creature called a Shambler that expels a spore cloud when it’s near you that can burn you if you’re caught in its wake.
Today’s footage follows the release of the game’s official story trailer on May 6th, which hinted at a dark and difficult journey for Ellie. Joel has appeared in some prerelease footage, but it’s unclear if you’ll play as him.
The Last of Us Part II will finally be out for the PlayStation 4 on June 19th, after numerous delays.
