In E3’s latest trailer from Naughty Dog, we get a moving and savage look at what has been going on in the world of The Last of Us since we last saw Joel and Ellie.
We are introduced to an older Ellie at some kind of ho-down where we see that Ellie has a new love interest who doesn’t seem to fully grasp the amount of death and war she has seen and taken part in.
Flash to, Ellie puncturing someone’s jugular and her infiltration and slaughter of a compound full of baddies.
It’s a great trailer, the brutal nature of The Last of Us seems to have upped its hardcore violence game. There is no sign of the infected as of yet, but that is something I’m completely fine with.
Eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the trailer shows that Ellie is wearing her girlfriend’s bracelet while slaughtering the camp. It’s possible that she lent it to her but in this world, it’s even more likely that it’s a keepsake following her girlfriend’s death. Get the tissues ready, to catch your tears.
We are probably still a ways off from this Playstation release, just hopefully not too long.
