The Last of Us Part II's new trailer is absolutely brutal

New The Last Of Us Part II trailer doesn’t feature Joel or Ellie

This sneak peek into The Last of Us Part 2 does not feature any of the main characters - Ellie and Joel. Then again, when I think back to playing the first game and, for example, having to guide Ellie through that burning building as that insane dude was coming after her and trying to kill her, the game has never shied away from intensity.

"The Last of Us at its heart is about Joel and Ellie and their journey, but it's also an ensemble piece", says Druckmann.

The gameplay opened with a couple women being taken captive.

It's all part of The Last of Us Part II's powerful new footage, which is quite surprising given that we hadn't heard much about the game before now, and then Sony chose to pull no punches with this shocking new trailer.

The newcomer spits in the face of the camp's leader, who smoothly responds, "Clip her wings". He questions that, saying, "But she's one of them!"

Eventually, a young boy, who seems to know the woman with the wounded arm, emerges and asks if she's okay. Is this set at the same time as The Last of Us Part 2? Who is the "Apostate" who almost gets her arm cut off?

In September, a teaser poster was released, which featured a hand holding a hammer.

While the trailer doesn't give away too many concrete details and lacks an appearance from the protagonists of the series, it does show us several new characters. Fans thought it was Joel, but the new trailer finally revealed the true identity of the holder.
