New, spoiler-prone footage of The Last of Us II has surfaced on YouTube. Some important plot points are shown in the videos, among other things. The images have since been taken offline by Sony. The developer has not yet responded.
Spoilers will not be mentioned in this article, and the linked source articles. Be careful with the comments below the articles. The videos feature never-before-seen gameplay footage, multiple cutscenes, the game’s main menu, and possible multiplayer code, PushSquare reports. The multiplayer will be added to the game upon release. The videos have since been taken offline, but there is a chance that users have downloaded the images. It is unknown exactly how the videos were leaked.
According to DualShockers, the images are already being shared on social media. The risk of spoilers therefore remains high. Gamers wishing to avoid such spoilers should therefore remain vigilant on social media platforms and YouTube. It might be wise to mute words related to the game series on platforms like Twitter.
Naughty Dog and Sony have not released a statement about the recently leaked footage at the time of writing. Sony postponed The Last of Us II indefinitely earlier this month due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. At the same time, gameplay footage also leaked out.
