The Last of Us 2 PS4

The Last of Us: Part II might not be launching until May 2020 on PlayStation 4, but that doesn't mean you can't play it for yourself early at a certain upcoming trade show. That's right, Sony is giving PAX East attendees the chance to play Naughty Dog's epic sequel on the show floor as part of the first-ever public hands on.

Running from 27th February through to 1st March, those heading to the Boston show will be allowed to play a demo featuring a full hour of gameplay within a section named Patrol. Said to take place early in the game, Ellie and Dina will venture outside of Jackson to clear out infected in the surrounding areas.

We have to imagine that the queues to play this one will be very, very long so it would be a good idea to download the Experience PlayStation mobile app where you'll be able to book a time slot on the day and walk straight up to the booth and start playing. It's an application we sampled at EGX last year and it certainly works well if you're quick enough when slots become available.

Are you heading to PAX East later this month? Does the prospect of playing The Last of Us: Part II early excite you? Join the queue in the comments below.
