Although it had been rumoured and talked about for some time, we now have it officially confirmed - The Last Of Us, Part II is happening.

This evening at the PlayStation Experience, NaughtyDog unveiled the very first trailer for the sequel to 2013's game and brought us right back into the action. Players will recall that the end of The Last Of Us was something of a cliffhanger, so it makes sense to bring people back with a first look at Ellie and Joel.

Speaking at the launch, NaughtyDog creative director Neil Druckman said that "while a sequel may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, that wasn’t the case. We knew that it needed to be a story worth telling and, perhaps more importantly, a story worthy of Joel and Ellie."

"After spending years on different ideas (and almost giving up), we finally uncovered a story that felt special - a story that evolved into an epic journey."

Right, that's enough filler. Here's the trailer. Let us know what you think in the comments.
