Hm, their strategy seemed to change then? Usually those preview events are closer to launch, like a month or at most two.
Part II's marketing in general is very different from anything they've done. They've only shown it once a year. Once in 2016 (PSX), 2017 (PGW) and 2018 (E3). I think this is just the start of the marketing ramp up for the game until it releases.

god no, not this game again....
Every websites are going to do news about this game EACH HOURS, EACH DAYS...

We already are spammed by death stranding and Cyberpunk while many others are ignored....
I know, right? All these PRESTIGE GAMES ruining gaming!

Real gamers play non pretentious games like Fire Emblem Three Houses with the superbly written and complex Edelgard von Hresvelg.


I’m excited. I wonder if TLOUPII will also have MP. Factions was one of the few MP games I actually put effort in.

Ellie is such a great character and has grown close to my heart. I really want to know how her story continues.

I am looking forward to the event and hoping for a demo or beta.

Awesome! Just gimme the release date! :D

I trust ND won't spoil much of anything from the story. I don't really need any more gameplay videos or anything really, what they've shown is enough, but I'll take a peek of what they want to show :P

I have a good feeling about this game and in particular its story. Excited to hear when the hell its coming.

Maybe a PS5 launch title? How many systems would that sell? A lot, thats how many.

Do we now know if this is press only or for everyone to see, since Geoff tweeted it?
it is a press only event, but we will obviously get preview impressions and b-roll footage out of it, most likely a release date too.

if it was a PS5 title, they wouldnt have been holding a preview event.

This. I do not want a ghost of Joel and Ellie remembering him in cutscenes only. I want Joel gameplay.

And please not too much cutscenes, this is still a game we are playing.

The official soundrack is awesome ! Even at the first hearing I'd say it's as good as TLOU1 main theme !

So excited!!!

And I'll echo the other voices here: TLOU MP is fucking amazing and it better be present. In fact, the MP mode should be an independent release altogether and be playable for all PS+ members next gen.

i think the role will be reversed between Ellie and Joel...in the first game, it's 90% Joel, 10% Ellie. This time probably switched.

We still need to know what caused Ellie to go bonkers and going on a killing spree as shown in the trailers....

I hope the amount of what's shown is substantial and more gameplay. I want to see how dynamics between infected, bandits and Ellie have changed including A.I, improvements to puzzles beyond the first game. The music so far has been incredible.

Why would you want the same game as TLOU1, just with better graphics? Play through TLOU1 again for "Joel gameplay".

That's how sequels should be done. Change things. Do something different. Although, to be honest, I don't think Ellie's gameplay will be much different... She's older now. She will use firearms. It won't be like in Left Behind all the time.

What else could it mean, lol?

While it's not impossible - sending out invites to press to come to a location just for a gameplay hands-off for TLOU2 at this stage of a marketing cycle would be a bit.... awkward.
I’m just blown it’s gonna be actually hands on! That’s awesome and it definitely paints good Things!

PS5 gameplay without properly revealing PS5? Nope.
Well they could show off a small snippet of PS5 footage to the press as a teaser. TLoU II is big enough for that.

We still haven’t seen his current gen face. Just the back of his head.
You're point being? Fact is Joel has already been revealed. Druckmann also tweeted filming for Joel is wrapped with a picture of Troy Baker. Joel is in the game.

It is quite surprising that they are already doing hands on demo's, was expecting it much closer to release like God of War and Uncharted 4. Game must already be pretty polished!

They are clearly setting off a new game for us to be hyped about. They can't have a single day without a hit to look forward, with a release date, otherwise they lose sales in the most important part of the year. With Death Stranding coming out in November, they needed to do this in late October. I'm sure Ghost of something will have an event before TLOU2 launches.

We know he's in the game but not what he looks like. People want a reveal of Joel's character render to see what he looks like on current gen consoles.

Anyone mentioning PS5 will be disappointed. Just because people are going to this event =/= gameplay for us. It means journalists will see the game. All it means is the game is on track for February or March

Still kind of wish they went with brand new characters and a brand new story away from Ellie and Joel, but still HYPE
That’s how I feel. There was a lot of potential in this setting wasted focusing on Ellie again. Her girlfriend gets killed and she goes on a revenge rampage, it’s not looking nearly as interesting as the first one. BUT it would be interesting if her mother is playable (when she was alive) as long been rumored.

What really looked interesting was other cities or factions or countries even, or focusing on the collapse of society as we saw in the very beginning from Joel’s perspective. But the main draw for me is multiplayer and playing this on survivor/grounded.

For those on the fence about watching new gameplay, I'd say go for it just to see how closely it resembles their 2018 showcase.

I don't get it. Why is everyone hyped for a "Prestige" game? I thought we decided those were all bad.

Feel kinda dumb - its 5am and I can't sleep. Head is full of ideas about how they will elevate interaction with the infected, as well as human enemies / npcs getting mixed up with them.

Nah we decided that blog writer was basically just shitposting about how they dont like a game a lot of people love and that makes them better than you.
