The Last of Us Gamescom Trailer is the Best Music Video of the Year

We haven’t seen much of The Last of Us since E3, thankfully Sony and Naughty Dog have seen fit to release a new trailer hot from the recent Sony conference at Gamescom. It provides yet another look at the violent post apocalyptic world we’ll be guiding survivors Ellie and Joel through.

There’s a lot of stuff we’ve seen before here, the trailer seems to be based partially on the spectacular ambush trailer from earlier in the year. What sets this video apart though is the excellent use of the Hank Williams track ‘Alone and Forsaken’, it provides a surprisingly powerful backdrop to the brutal action seen throughout.

Joel also provides a small revelation at the end of the trailer, stating he’s “been on both sides”. We’ll have to wait till the games release next year to find out more, but it certainly has us intrigued.
