Watch 'The Last of Us Part II' Trailer From E3 2018

The deepest look we got at the game yet is equal parts heartfelt and brutal.

Sony’s E3 press conference started with slow banjo music that preceded a trailer for The Last of Us Part II. Like its predecessor, The Last of Us Part II looks like a mix of well-crafted story and brutal combat. We didn’t see any of the infected— The Last of Us’ fungus zombies—but we did see series protagonist Ellie murdering a dozen of her fellow humans.

Ellie is older and Joel—her surrogate father—is nowhere to be seen. She’s living a life, seems to have a girlfriend, but there’s something unsettled in her. The gameplay shows us why. She's a brutal killing machine—stealthing through the environment, shooting people in the face, and cutting men down in a way that sometimes feels a little too real.
