PGW: The Last of Us 2 Trailer

PGW: The Last of Us 2 Trailer

Sony closed their Paris Games Week press conference with this rather impressive and very brutal cutscene of The Last of Us Part II. The real question now is who are those characters of course!
Update: Added another video where the game's director Neil Druckmann explains a bit more about the game and this trailer.

Dang. Kinda disappointing that Sony is only providing these trailers in relatively low bit rate 1080p. They're in 4K on their YouTube channel...

Thank you Gamersyde I love you guys.

That doesn't really mean anything when the bitrate is lower on youtube. Just because it says 4k doesn't mean "better". Youtube vids are always lower quality than these.

I dunno about that. I was doing side by side comparison of the Ghost of Tsushima trailer. It's kinda subtle but I'm pretty sure the 4K Youtube trailer looked a tad cleaner than the 1080p download from here. Plus it ain't like the bitrate on these 1080p vids are mind blowing. Considering they're just standard h.264 mp4, 10-18 mbps isn't that high...

People are speculating it is Ellie's Mammy in the video. It does look very much like her without it clearly being her.

I don't think Sony "provided" this trailer, I think Gamersyde captured it using their own methods since it has the Gamersyde logo at the start. Also they did that thing where they captured it at 60fps not to miss any frames even though the trailer clearly is running at 30fps.

Its strange you would go straight to ridiculing Sony like that. Yet this 671mb sized capture is still a larger file size than the 400mbs 4K version on Youtube so the quality of between both is fairly clear. And 18mb is still over 3 times higher than the Youtube 5mb/s standard.

don't worry guys, half way through the game we will take control over Joel and Ellie. There will are multiple playable characters. :)

Sorry for spoiling that. ;p

Gamersyde puts their logo ahead of most of the content they post. These trailers, though, are generally always provided by the publishers. And if it WERE an instance of them being at the show and capturing the videos, then it would still be on Sony for not providing 4K feeds.

Is this real-time? It looks way more advanced than U4.
Yes it is. At least, it sure seems like it. ND made the claim when U4 came out that they were done with pre rendered scenes. They said their rendering tech was finally good enough and the PS4 powerful enough to not need to do that anymore. In the interview posted here Neil Druckmann talks about how they've made significant leaps with their tech since U4.

Sony had a better Paris Games Week than E3 this year! My emotions are already going wild for The Last of Us Part 2.

Ellie's pregnant mom?

No they don't, they don't do that with any publisher sent/acquired videos. They just put up the video unaltered. The Gamersyde logo is for all of their own custom made content. If you were a fan of Gamersyde you would know this.

Shadow of the Colossus Remake TGS Trailer from 6 weeks ago

Red Dead Redemption 2 Debut Trailer from 12 months ago

Uncharted 4 Debut Trailer from 3 and a half years ago

I can link to more but it would be EVERY single publisher video that Gamersyde has got in well over a decade now.

Gamersyde do not out their logo on press/asset website videos or publisher sent videos but they do on all their custom videos like this TLOU Part II trailer or like this one here

And no, it is not "on Sony" that you built up some expectation that their should be 4K videos of their trailers or stream anywhere. I don't even recall them mentioning such a thing in their hype for the event

After checking out the videos they posted, yeah it's clear that Gamersyde captured them from the show. Most likely in a similar manner to how they've done with past shows. However, that being the case, as I said earlier, it still lies in the hands of the company throwing the event (in this case, Sony) to determine what quality outlets such as Gamersyde are able to capture in. They were able to capture in 4K from the MS E3 conference because MS made that possible. Sony did not make that possible here, even though they are clearly 4K ready as their entire presentation was being streamed in 4K and their individual video uploads on their Youtube channel are also in 4K. So, the only disconnect here, since we KNOW that Gamersyde is able to capture in 4K, and we KNOW that Sony has all these assets available in 4K, is the interface that Sony made available to the press for video capture. So I maintain that it's on Sony. These captured videos could have been in 4K if Sony wanted to make that possible. But clearly it seems the priority is their own Youtube channel. Hopefully they'll release source files in the coming days.

They weren't kidding about their updated engine. This looks insane even for a cutscene, and its an in game cutscene not pre rendered. There is a lot more to speculate this time also

"tongue click" NICE

I really hope these are NOT playable characters. I would really hate if it wasn’t Joel or Ellie the entire game.

Thisgame is the reason I own a PS4 Pro and will be buying a 4k TV near it's launch. :) Day freaking 1 purchase.

Watched it again.I can't believe this is real-time. This is too big of a step from U4.
tbh it's not that far off from what was in U4, it's just a lot more atmospherically lit. and if they say they've made a year or so's worth of engine improvements i can see it being real time.
Commented on 2017-10-31 10:36:00 In reply to KORNdog
What makes it look so different from U4 aside from engine improvements is the different artstyle. U4 is much more stylized with very vibrant color palet, tlou is way more photo realistic which makes sense

in general yeah, but then last of us could be a very vibrant game too, it's just in this instance, it's basically pitch black and the only light source is a fire. there were similar times in U4 where due to lighting conditions things seemed to jump more towards a realistic image than an exaggerated one, such as this scene

i think in terms of baseline asset quality there isn't much separating them. where the last of us looks better is it's animations, they were already stellar in U4, but they've been raised another level here. but again, if they've made big leaps in terms of facial rigs and facial musculature to better mimic the performance capture, then that's to be expected. remember this is a game coming potentially 3 years after U4.
