Even though there’s not a ton of new footage in Sony’s official Gamescom 2012 trailer for The Last of Us, it’s still a neat little recap of everything that we saw at E3 2012 this past summer. Opting for a more artsy style, the newest trailer provides a montage set to the tune of “Alone and Forsaken” by country music icon Hank Williams.
It’s a fitting tune for the game in general, as Hank Williams’ music has a penchant for creating a terrific atmosphere.
Notably, a small piece of information about Joel’s past is given a moment at the end of the trailer, with the following exchange between him and Ellie:
“How did you know?”
“About the ambush?”
“Because I’ve been on both sides.”
Check out the footage below, courtesy of Sony’s media rounds for Gamescom 2012. For those who need a reminder, The Last of Us doesn’t have a set release date yet, so we’ll just to keep waiting on Naughty Dog to wrap things up.
