Last of Us 2 State of Play: Start time, how to live stream new PS4 gameplay reveal

Last of Us 2 fans will be treated to more gameplay footage of the major PS4 exclusive during a State of Play broadcast today. At 9pm BST, which is 4pm eastern time and 1pm pacific time, a State of Play dedicated entirely to The Last of Us Part 2 will air. This Last of Us 2 State of Play is being broadcast a few weeks after Sony dedicated an entire State of Play to another PS4 exclusive – Ghost of Tsushima.

That broadcast focussing on Sucker Punch’s latest became the most watched State of Play ever.

It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Last of Us Part 2 State of Play will go on to even top those record viewing figures for the Tsushima stream.

The Last of Us 2 State of Play was announced earlier this week by the official PlayStation Twitter account.

The @PlayStation Twitter posted: “State of Play’s next episode is dedicated to The Last of Us Part II.

“Tune in Wednesday at 1pm Pacific time for a deep dive and a new gameplay sequence”.

While in a blog post Sid Shuman, Senior Director of SIE Content Communications, said: “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.”

If you want to tune into the Last of Us 2 State of Play then you’ll be able to do so on YouTube and Twitch.

The news comes as earlier this week the Last of Us 2 review embargo was revealed, with critics confirming that they have received review codes for TLOU2.

The Last of Us Part 2 review embargo lifts on Friday June 12 at 8.01am BST.

It’s good news for pre-order customers, who have a whole week to decide whether or not to cancel their orders based on review scores.

While on the flipside, the review scores may push more people to move forward with a pre-order for the big release date.

The Last of Us Part 2 is out on the PS4 on Friday June 19.
