Sony surprise announced the issuance of a new State of Play. While we wait to have news about PlayStation 5, which looks like they will arrive in early June, players have their eyes on one of the great releases this year. The Last of Us Part II is the continuation of the award-winning first part that came to the end of the PlayStation 3 generation.
As with the past generation, Naughty Dog will be one of the latest studios to squeeze the power of the current PlayStation. As we have already seen so far with its different trailers, The Last of Us Part II is one of the greatest graphic portents that we have seen on console and today it has demonstrated it again.
It has been shown in style gameplay of The Last of Us Part II on PlayStation 4. In this gameplay we have seen that Naughty Dog follows another level when it comes to recreating emotions in the characters, even in those rival NPCs that we will meet once in the game. Here you can see it with Spanish subtitles:
The tension and extreme violence They have also been protagonists in a gameplay that has kept us glued to the screen at all times, while Ellie sought to eliminate all those who wanted to hunt him down.
For its part, the graphic section is again worth mentioning. As we have seen throughout the demo the detail in the characters, settings and effects will be spectacular
The State of Play has started by showing a spectacular trailer for the game, where several shocking scenes from the game have given way so that later it is Neil Druckmann who has taken the reins of the broadcast, mentioning the current situation and sending encouragement to the players who the game will soon be in their hands.
Later we have come to see that the game will start dealing with the events of the end of the first installment, watching as Joel and Ellie move into the community of their brother, Tommy.
Druckmann, the game director, has commented that a dramatic event changes that peace and Ellie is forced onto a solo path that will take her to an area that encompasses Seattle and surrounding areas. These areas can be explored, both those surrounded by buildings and roads and the most hidden ones hidden by forests. Some areas will also require traveling on horseback or even by motor boat for those flooded.
Enemies of all kinds
In Seattle we will find all kinds of enemies, both human and infectedTherefore, we must be very careful when exploring and adapting our style of play to avoid direct conflict with them.
The appearance of new types of infectedThey will make things much more difficult for us than in the first game, so when we have to face them we better be prepared.
On the other hand, humans have abilities to track us, so we can use their new abilities to lead them into a trap, Sure. There will be all kinds of options to adapt our style of play, powered by a character like Ellie, much more agile than Joel.
The character enhancement has also undergone a profound change, so that the customization of weapons and abilities has become more detailed, with options of all kinds for our weapons. We will also return to the crafting system, divided into offensive and defensive, which will allow us to use what we have been collecting to create weapons to destroy our enemy or aid to protect us from their attacks.
To conclude Neil Druckmann’s message, a gameplay fragment of about 10 minutes has been presented that puts us in the shoes of Ellie, fleeing from one of the rival groups that we will meet in Seattle.
In this extensive gameplay we have been able to see what Neil mentioned during the broadcast. Depending on the moment, Ellie has taken different approaches to finish off the enemy, using stealth and its bow, pistols or melee weapons, as well as smoke grenades or Molotov cocktails.
The gameplay depth, which now allows us to cover larger areas, is driven by a level design in which we are forced to move at all times and make use of Ellie’s agility to reach high points or sneak in through vents.
The gameplay concludes with a cinematic scene in which Ellie meets a certain character, to the one who points his gun with the intention of looking for answers.
