Initial trailer, 2016

Paris Games Week Trailer, 2017
The next trailer for the game was shown at Sony’s press conference during the 2017 Paris Games Week.
This trailer focuses on conflicts between the human factions in the game, showing us that Part 2 is going to have a dark story, perhaps even darker than in the first.
Besides the stunning visuals, the trailer is actually pretty harrowing to watch – you’ve been warned.
Official Gameplay Trailer, E3 2018
An emotion-evoking Last of Us 2 trailer was shown during E3 2018.
This gameplay trailer finally gave us a good look at Ellie’s character in an intimate environment, before cutting to some of the vicious, stealth-based combat that we can expect to see at launch.
This exhilarating gameplay sequence shows us Ellie fighting for her life in the wild, using every possible feature in the environment to help her get out alive.

Success in a fight will clearly require the right balance between stealth and physicality, as damage seems to have a more realistic impact on health than before.
Ellie is able to move quietly between areas, taking weapons from bodies before tactically taking down her enemies.
It’s going to be a whole different beast to the original, but it really does look like something to get excited about.
