Naughty Dog has posted a new trailer for The Last of Us: Part II focused on Abby, one of the new characters in the franchise and one of the most relevant to the history of this game. Played by Laura Bailey, Abby is a character who seeks revenge and this quest will lead her to do terrible things.
Obviously we are not going to do spoilers, the game is already 6 months on the market but there are still many people who have not played it and have diligently dodged spoilers. But we can comment that Abby is a very controversial character and that she quickly became the center of the discussions of the players who finished the game.
Abby and her controversy
In fact all of The Last of Us: Part II is quite controversial, at least it was for users. For the critics, it has been rather one of the best games of the year and just recently it was nominated for 10 categories at The Game Awards, at the same time that it won several awards at the Joystick Awards.
So basically we are facing a title that has divided critics and specialized media with fans and players. This is normal but certainly the division has been more marked this time.
Abby is at the center of all this controversy and the same actress who played her has not had a good time receiving death threats and other comments on her social networks. So you have to take into account that the game touches on topics that generate discussions that go beyond “just being a video game”.
The trailer that you can see below does not reveal the whole plot, but it does reveal the motivations and origins of this character. The Last of Us: Part II is available on PlayStation 4 and is backward compatible on PlayStation 5.
