The Last of Us Part II spans the gamut of human emotion

The Last of Us: Part II has been attracting criticism for its violence ever since its Paris Games Week trailer a year ago, and this week's E3 2018 demo prompted a similar backlash.

After some light disembowelment, the game goes into the usual The Last of Us stealth gameplay, confirming Ellie to be at least playable. Ellie's facial expressions, movements, and even the environment are very well done.

The gameplay trailer doesn't reveal too much in terms of storyline, just enough to keep us interested. "We're making a game about the cycle of violence and we're making a statement about violent actions and the impact they have on the character that's committing them and on the people close to them", he told Kotaku. She walks over to Ellie, and it's not long before the girl - who we learn is named Dina - joins Ellie on the sidelines for a few moments before pulling her onto the dance floor for the next song. We know it'll be available for the PlayStation 4 and be a single-player title, but finer details like price and launch date aren't provided.
