The Last of Us Part 2 Release Date May Be Announced This Week
The Last of Us Part 2 is one of the few PlayStation 4 exclusive games known to be in development to still lack a final release date. According to rumor, however, this is going to change very soon.
According to Gamereactor, a new The Last of Us Part 2 trailer is going to be shared later this week. The final release date for the game is also going to be announced this week, and it should be sometime this Fall, according to the report.
With the new Death Stranding trailer getting shown later this week as well, it’s not yet clear if The Last of Us Part 2 trailer will also come on the same day. If so, we could be getting a surprise State of Play where the two games will share in the spotlight.
Despite being one of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 games in development, there’s very little we currently know about the game, outside of what director Neil Druckmann revealed a while back.
In The Last of Us Part II, Ellie is now 19 and has found a semblance of peace and normality living in Jackson. She’s had a chance to be a teenager and forge lasting relationships. When that peace is disrupted by a violent act, Ellie is thrust into a brutal journey of retribution, fueled by a need to bring those that have wronged her to justice, pushing her to her very limits.
From the way Ellie plays to the way she navigates through this hostile world, you’re going to feel her physical, emotional, and mental state expressed through every facet of gameplay. We’ve completely overhauled our engine, developed new combat mechanics, created a new analog stealth systems, and revamped our animation system to fully express Ellie’s desperation, resourcefulness, and unique agility.
We’re also upping the stakes and tension of the world. Our environments are broader, more complex, and more detailed–bringing unprecedented realism, verticality, and player choice to the world of The Last of Us. The human enemies you’ll encounter are now more threatening and capable, using sophisticated communication and environmental awareness to create intense, more dynamic stealth and head-on combat encounters.
The Last of Us Part 2 will launch on PlayStation 4 on a yet to be confirmed release date.
