Naughty Dog has launched the story trailer for The Last Of Us Part II. As June 19 nears, the developers are ramping up the promotion with this latest reveal.

It certainly gives us a more fleshed-out look at how time has passed for Joel and Ellie since the events of the original. It would be difficult to make predictions from this story trailer, but the scope of the story feels as vast as it does harrowing. This is reaffirmed by Ellie’s voiceover declaring, ”I have to finish it,”, before Joel responds gravely, "There's a cost.”

The trailer gives us more glimpses of Joel, to the first signs of vehicular warfare, and a better sense of how large, and formidable, the group Ellie’s set to face, really are.

If you’ve yet to see it, then head on over to YouTube at the link below.

As the caption beneath the trailer reads: “After a vicious and violent event disrupts the relative peace that Ellie has found in Jackson, she sets out to bring justice to those responsible. “

It adds: “As she hunts them down one by one, she is confronted with the devastating physical and emotional repercussions of her actions.”

Plus, if this still isn’t enough to sell you on The Last of Us Part II, Joel’s also playing guitar, and it looks like he’s actually going to sing for Ellie this time. So, come on you've got to buy it now.

Recently, a listing on the PlayStation website announced that The Last Of Us Part II says would need "100 GB minimum" of free space to install onto a console. For that reason, the game's physical edition will be launched on two discs.

The Last Of Us Part II is scheduled for a release date of June 19 on PlayStation 4. It follows two delays, the second becoming an almost indefinite postponement due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
