Initially released in 2013, The Last of Us introduced players to the iconic duo of Joel and Ellie, who quickly became some of the most loved characters in the history of the platform.

A huge critical success and hailed as beautiful and “heart-rending” by articles such as this one by newspaper, The Guardian, The Last of Us also struck a cord with players, securing a solid score of 95 on Metacritic, who have eagerly awaited more information since the sequel’s announcement back in 2016.

Ellie is shown in a stunning CGI sequence before viewers were thrown into a montage of brutal and grotesque clips of fighting and combat. Then a familiar hand saves her from being discovered by a convoy of vehicles…

We can’t wait to get our hands on it!
