The Last of Us Part II is the new sequel from Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4.

Set five years after 2013’s The Last of Us, players control an older Ellie, who comes into conflict with a mysterious cult in a post-apocalyptic United States.

Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson are back as Joel and Ellie. It also features the new characters Dina (Shannon Woodward), Yara (played by Victoria Grace), Lev (Ian Alexander), Emily (Emily Swallow), and an unnamed character played by Laura Bailey.

Here is the new trailer. Possible spoilers ahead.

The Last Of Us Part II director Neil Druckman also released this statement:

Thank you for being patient with us. Very patient. Even though we’ve been eager to share more about The Last of Us Part II and tell you its release date, we wanted to wait until we were close to wrapping up production and we were confident in the date itself. We have a bunch of new stuff to share with you today… starting with the fact that on February 21, 2020 the Last of Us Part II can finally be in your hands.

We began working on this game over five years ago. It’s hard to describe the immense pressure of following up the first game. We know how much you love this world and its characters — especially Ellie and Joel. Believe me, we’re fans as well. We love them. Which is why we spent years crafting a game that we feel will do them justice, telling a nuanced story that deals with the core question: how far would you go to exact justice against the people that hurt the ones you love? It’s a highly emotional story with complex themes that befit the world of The Last of Us. What we realized pretty early on is that we were putting together Naughty Dog’s most ambitious and longest game in our 35 year history. To tell this kind of story the game needed to be massive. Without spoiling too much, at the top of this post you can watch the brand-new trailer that we debuted earlier today on State of Play, which just scratches the surface of what the game has in store.

The Last of Us Part 2 will be out on PS4 on 21 February 2020.
