Leading up to the launch of The Last of Us Part II for PlayStation 4 on June 19th, Naughty Dog and PlayStation have announced a new video series exploring various aspects of the upcoming title. New videos look like they will release every week for the next month, starting today. The first of these explicitly explores the sequel's story and narrative, and while it doesn't necessarily spoil anything, folks that are looking to go into the new title with as little knowledge as possible might want to avoid it.
"The Last of Us Part II is by far the largest and most ambitious game we’ve ever made and there will be so much for you to dig into when it arrives on June 19th," Scott Lowe, Senior Communications Manager at Naughty Dog, states in the PlayStation blog post revealing the new video series. "Leading up to launch, we’re releasing a brand new series of videos breaking down key aspects of the game. Each video will feature interviews with members of our team as we discuss the design, technology, and ideas that have shaped the development of our game over the last six years."
