The Last of Us fans, you have been warned ⁠— huge plot details for Naughty Dog’s long-awaited sequel to their hit 2013 action-adventure title have been leaked online in one of the biggest spills in recent history.

The Last of Us burst onto the scene seven years ago as one of the gaming industry’s biggest hits ever. Fans immediately began calling for Naughty Dog to spin a sequel to Joel and Ellie’s horrifying and gripping post-apocalyptic story.

Bad news struck earlier this month: TLOU 2 was delayed “until further notice.” The title was stripped of its expected May 29 release date. Now an even bigger blow has landed: it looks like the story has been leaked too.

Early Monday morning, a series of videos ⁠— most of which have already been removed by Sony and Naughty Dog ⁠— revealed key elements from the sequel. Among the leaks were the game’s main menu, and gameplay clips.

A string of plot-heavy cutscenes were also among the uploads. Sony acted quickly, binning the original video. It was too late though; the clips had been revealed. Soon after, reuploads began appearing on Twitter, YouTube, and more.

Seriously, The Last of Us Part II spoilers ahead

If you want to avoid The Last of Us Part II plot spoilers, read no further. Some of the leaked footage showed a horse-riding cutscene between Ellie and Dina. Another showed a lengthy conversation between Joel and Ellie.

There were a few pretty huge clips too, including one that contains one of the leak’s biggest spoilers ⁠— Ellie and Dina’s blossoming relationship. The two appear to be deep in pillow talk before they’re interrupted by Jesse.

We will give one last spoiler warning. This is the big one. It looks like TLOU fans’ worst fears have been realized. The biggest leak of all is a clip of Ellie finding Joel caught and beaten by bandits. It could well be his rumored death scene.

Another of the Last of Us Part II leaks has major implications for Joel in the long-awaited sequel.

The general consensus online is this leak came from a disgruntled employee or an alpha tester. This seems to be confirmed by dev messages and prompts which pop up at irregular intervals. It appears to be a March test build.

There’s no getting around it: this is a big leak. It may not be as big as the Valve source code debacle, but it will certainly be a headache for Sony and Naughty Dog. Let’s hope there aren’t any more major leaks on the horizon.

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems.

These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account.
