The Last Of Us Part 2's New Extended Commercial Features Ellie Singing A Lovely Tune
Maybe if there wasn't an apocalypse in TLOU2, Ellie would start a band.
With a little more than two weeks to go until the highly-anticipated The Last of Us Part 2 hits PlayStation 4, Naughty Dog and PlayStation have shared a brand-new extended commercial for the game.
The spotlight, which is only about one minute long, shows Ellie serenading her love interest, Dina, by a campfire. The song, a brief acoustic rendition of "True Faith" by the synthpop band New Order, is interspersed with a scene of Ellie running from human pursuers. It's a much more sobering look at the journey Ellie will undertake throughout The Last Of Us Part 2 when compared to other trailers we've seen.
Naughty Dog has been much more vocal about The Last Of Us Part 2 in recent months, with the studio showing off 20 minutes of gameplay footage during a late-May State of Play livestream. We also had the opportunity to check the game out during a hands-on preview, where editor Edmond Tran said his experience was satisfyingly brutal and uncomfortable in the same breath.
The Last of Us Part 2 drops on June 19 for PlayStation 4. You can check out our Last of Us Part 2 pre-order guide to learn more about what you can get for purchasing the game ahead of its imminent release date. And don't worry if you upgrade to a PlayStation 5 this holiday season, as PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan has confirmed that The Last of Us Part 2 will definitely work on the next-gen system.
