More details on The Last of Us Part II are coming soon. Sony has announced the panel lineup for PlayStation Experience next week, and one of the featured events is a discussion about Naughty Dog’s hugely anticipated PlayStation 4 game. Specifically, writer/director Neil Druckmann, writer Halley Gross, and “key members” of the cast will talk about the making of the thrilling and gory trailer that debuted at Paris Games Week.
A year ago this month, Sony announced that it hired Gross–who wrote for HBO’s Westworld–to write the story for The Last of Us Part II alongside Druckmann. There is no word on which actors will attend the panel. Some of the lead actors include big-name video game voice actors Ashley Johnson (Ellie), Troy Baker (Joel), Laura Bailey (Anna), along with Westworld actress Shannon Woodward who plays an unspecified character.
The PSX Last of Us Part II panel will be streamed live, but if you are attending in person, you can stick around after for a signing session. The panel takes place on Saturday, December 9, starting at 6:30 PM PT.
PSX will also include a panel featuring Sucker Punch developers talking about the genesis of their exciting-looking new game, Ghost of Tsushima. Another PSX panel will see Media Molecule developers talk about Dreams and another will focus on PlayStation VR. You can see a full rundown of PSX panels here on the PlayStation Blog.
In addition to the panels, Sony has teased some news for PSX, though the company also stressed that its biggest news this year was already announced at E3 and Paris Games Week. We’ll report back with all the big news from PSX this year, so keep checking back with GameSpot for more.
