During their Paris Games Week 2017 press conference, Sony showed off an extended look at The Last of Us Part II. The lengthy trailer focuses entirely on new characters and the series’ now iconic post-apocalyptic setting. It’s bleak stuff to say the least. In its roughly 5-minute run-time we see bodies strung up and disembowelled, a women having her “wings clipped” using a hammer and a horde of infected descending on a campsite.

The trailer, which you can watch below, reveals very little about the game and it is unclear who the characters on screen are. One thing’s for certain though, there is no Joel and Ellie seen here. We still don’t have any further details on when we’re likely to see the game release but it is likely that more will be revealed during Sony’s PlayStation experience conference in December.

In the YouTube description of the trailer, Naughty Dog did have this to say:

“At its core, The Last of Us Part II is still very much about Ellie and Joel, but for this reveal, we wanted to showcase several new characters that are integral to their next journey. We’re sure you have many questions after watching this scene. We’re also pretty sure that we’re going to see all sorts of theories about whom these characters are, where and when this scene takes place, and how all of this fits into Ellie and Joel’s next story. For now we’re keeping mum, but we’re excited to see what y’all make of this piece of the puzzle.”
