Welcome to Issue 4 of Game News Rundown! Where we bring you the latest video game news in one easy and convenient article.
During this weeks Game News Rundown we will be talking about, well The Last of Us: Part II mostly. Really, there have been so many updates for this game that we might as well call this Naughty Dog News Rundown. However, we have also managed to gather some news regarding Red Dead Redemption 2, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Death Stranding.
Let’s get started on this weeks video game news.
1. The Last of Us: Part II Release Date and Trailer
Yes, after patiently waiting for the best part of 3 years we finally received a new trailer and release date for The Last of Us: Part II. Shown during this years State of Play event, the trailer takes a deep dive into the overall story and tone this game will be focusing on.
The new trailer gives us a better understanding of Ellie’s actions recently, showing us what the driving force for her revenge could be. It also features some old faces such as Tommy (Joel’s brother) and Joel himself. This was a welcome surprise seeing him alive and well, after some not so good fan theories about the character.
Finally, the end of the trailer gave fans what we have been desperately asking for, an official release date. The Last of Us: Part II will be releasing on 21st February 2020!

5. No Single-Player DLC For Red Dead Redemption 2
The last video game news update this week is kind of a bummer, sorry.
In a recent interview with VG24/7 it was revealed that no single-player dlc has been planned for Red Dead Redemption 2. Lead Production Associate Katie Pica has said “We’re 100% focused on online right now”. This will come as a blow to any fans patiently waiting for some more story mode content.
With the recent zombie sightings in Red Dead Online, many fans had been speculating that an Undead Nightmare 2 could be in the works. Thanks to this interview, we now know that if anything like this is being planned, it will be for Red Dead Online only.
