Red bands typically indicate that you’re about to watch something that’s intended for a “mature audience,” and the latest trailer for The Last of Us does not disappoint in that regard.
The red band trailer for The Last of Us is an expanded version of the TV spot that aired during the season finale of The Walking Dead over the weekend. Expanded may be an understatement, however, as the new trailer is a full two minutes long compared to the original 30 second TV spot.
As the red band moniker implies, The Last of Us is pretty mature as far as games goes. It’s also looking to be one of the best stories to grace the video game medium this year. Whether or not it can stand up to, or even surpass, the ridiculously high standards set by BioShock Infinite remain to be seen though.
