If you had any doubt about the excitement and hype building for The Last Of Us Part II, these numbers really don't lie.

As of writing, the official five-minute trailer for The Last Of Us Part II has crossed 1.5 million views in less than 24 hours and will likely amass 2 million by the end of today. The gruesome trailer is somewhat light on story, but it perfectly captures the sheer violence that's rampant throughout the story and contextualises just how hopeless things are in the world.

Not surprisingly, there's been a number of complaints about it already - particularly the bit with the hammer - but it's powerful nonetheless.

See for yourself. The Last Of Us Part II is expected to arrive in 2019, exclusively on PlayStation 4.
