Is there a trailer?

Yes, HBO has given us a few tastes of the show. The most recent trailer arrived in December.

How scary is it?

It is more thriller than horror, with many intense moments. The infected don’t show up very often – Joel and Ellie have more human survivors than monsters – but are used to great effect when they do.

Do I have to have played the games?

No, the show tells the events of the first game (which came out in 2013) with some storylines and background elements expanded. However, The Last of Us and the sequel in 2020 are some of the most engaging games ever made. You should definitely dive in if the show intrigues you,

The original game is available on PS3, PS4, and PS5 (a PC version is due out on March 3), while the second is currently only on PS4.
