A new extended trailer for The Last of Us Part II focuses on Ellie’s violent journey in the sequel set to arrive next month.
Although The Last of Us Part II has been surrounded by controversy after leaks supposedly ruined the plot of the game for players, a new extended trailer focuses on Ellie’s journey across the post-apocalyptic world. The new CG spot doesn’t reveal any gameplay, instead focusing on the violence that Ellie has to engage in if she wants to survive. Fans already know that her journey takes place after some kind of attack that leaves her wanting revenge.
The extended trailer shows Ellie fighting humans as well as the infected, clearly offering a visual commentary on who the real monsters are. It’s all shown to Ellie’s moody acoustic rendition of New Order’s 1987 classic song, True Faith. The Last of Us Part II trailer shows that the monsters hiding in dark corridors will be no less frightening than the first game. Take a look below.

The first The Last of Us video game centers on the relationship between a smuggler named Joel and 14-year-old Ellie, the latter of whom may be the key to curing the deadly pandemic that resulted in the post-apocalypse world of the game. Hired to smuggle Ellie out of a quarantine zone, Joel finds himself relying on the teenage girl just as much as she relies on him as they fight to survive on their journey across the United States.
The HBO is currently developing a television adaptation that will cover the events of the first game, with the upcoming sequel titled potentially serving as the basis for additional content. Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann will pen and executive the series. The HBO adaptation will be a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and in association with PlayStation Productions.
