Sony’s May 27 ‘State of Play’ is all about The Last of Us Part II

A deep dive before the big launch.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

Sony’s next ‘State of Play’ this coming May 27 will feature entirely on Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II. This will probably be the last and big reveal before the game’s launch date on June 19.

According to PlayStation’s official blog, the video will clock at approximately 20 mins, with a good 8 minutes of it focusing on new gameplay material. The Last of Us Part II director himself, Neil Druckmann will provide the commentary during the broadcast.

From Sid Shuman Senior Director, SIE Content Communications:

Hi all – we’re putting the finishing touches on a new episode of State of Play that will air this Wednesday, May 27 at 1:00pm Pacific Time / 4:00pm Eastern Time on Twitch and YouTube.

Naughty Dog Vice President and The Last of Us Part II Director Neil Druckmann will give you a special preview of The Last of Us Part II, coming to PS4 June 19. Neil will walk you through details of the gameplay experience and story.

The current cut is clocking in a little more than 20 minutes, ending with an extended sequence showing off about eight minutes of never-before-seen gameplay.

And no, there won’t be any PS5 news or updates in this episode, just a deep dive into the world of The Last of Us Part II.
