The Last of Us Part 2 Announced

Naughty Dog says The Last of Us Part 2 is still "early days," so don't expect a release any time soon.

Sony closed out it's PlayStation Experience event over the weekend with the reveal of a very hotly anticipated title: The Last of us Part 2. The game is a direct sequel to 2013's The Last of Us, and will see zombie hunters Joel and Ellie return for another romp through spore-infested territory. Check out the reveal trailer to the right.

We can take a few things from this trailer. First, Ellie is considerably older than she was in the first game, so we can assume that some years have passed. Second, Joel is still around, meaning that he hasn't been killed off between the two games.

At some point in the trailer, he asks her: "What are you doing kiddo?" he asks. "You really gonna go through with this?" to which Ellie replies: "I'm gonna find and I'm gonna kill every last one of them." This suggests the game will be a kind of revenge story, and will possibly see the main protagonist switch from Joel to Ellie.

No release details as of yet, as Naughty Dog says that the game is still "early days".
