The Last of Us

“The Last of Us” is a post apocalyptic game currently in development by NaughtyDog (creators of Jak and Daxter, Crash Bandicoot, Uncharted) and set to release late 2012.

NaughtyDog Co-President Evan Wells detailed the game as such:

“The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.”

Here’s the reveal trailer.


Being a fan of NaughtyDog, this game looks cool from the trailer above. I can’t wait for them to release more info on the game and I’ll be updating this thread as best I can when they release more details.

So far, what are your first impressions? Does it look decent in your eyes? (Yes, I know it’s only a reveal trailer)


(I’ll be updating information about the game in the posts below)

It looks good but I’m so sick of zombies. Seriously. Left 4 Dead, Dead Island, CoD, etc. Oversaturation…

I saw the trailer, but all I could think was, “If this doesn’t have some sort of memorable story between the two characters, it’s not worth my time.” Like Trigger, I’m getting really annoyed of how saturated this genre has become, no matter how well-made the game is.

So the story will make or break it for me, and story alone.

I agree the zombie genre is getting boring as the overuse of the zombie games, theres just too many zombie games these days….

PSBlog has written an article explaining a sneak peek about couple of the scenes from the game here

This game looks amazing.

That looks like it’ll take more power to run than The Witcher 2… v-v I’ll never be able to run it.

All of Naughty Dog’s games have been Playstation exclusive, so I doubt it’s gonna be on the PC.

I don’t like the addition of the daughter, I thought a lone wanderer would have been cooler.

I’ve been a fan of Naughty Dog for years. Hope it’s half as good as Uncharted.

Eh… Playstation exclusive?

Suddenly do not want.

watched the trailer, it doesnt look like a very promising game. doesnt help that zombie games have been overdone so you really gotta stand out. this doesnt stand out.

Looks pretty good, but we will see.

You’re like the opposite of me. If I hear it’s a Playstation exclusive, I want it even more.

I have the PS3 and the 360.

I don’t like consoles.

True, zombies are overrated, but supposedly these aren’t zombies, just humans that are sick with some sort of fungus (like in “I AM LEGEND”). Though, I geuss they are pretty much the same thing.

Update (June 3rd)

Whoops, forgot about this thread. Sorry, I’ll try and keep up with the updates.

Anyway, here’s the newest trailer entitled “Truck Ambush” for the game:

Some more screenshots:


Also keep in mind that at E3 Sony will be giving out more information (and possibly gameplay!) on The Last of Us.

Watch the E3 countdown and once they release information on the game, I’ll try and update as soon as possible.

Hm, I really like the “Returned to the earth” look of this game. Also, I"m not sure if it’s really a zombie game… There was only one glimpse of these attacking people, and it looks more like the Infected from 28 Days/Weeks later than zombies.
Anyway, this looks pretty sweet, and I’m a big fan of Naughty Dog as well, so I can’t wait to see more about this.

Yeah, according to this interview, it’s a plague that has taken over the world for the past 20 years. I assume the virus turns them mad and disfigures them. So I doubt it’s just gonna be another generic “oh no zombies.. lets shoot with our big ass shotgun and chainsaws” game. I can’t wait to pick up this one.

It looks pretty awesome so far. I just hope other people learn the difference between “Infected” and “Living Dead”.

This game looks super but sadly when they released the trailer, it was overshadowed by the Dead Island trailer. Let’s home it doesn’t turn out like Dead Island.

My mind has been thoroughly blown

I still wasn’t very impressed after watching it today.

Looks like it’s going to be really linear :\

I saw that version and the live demo elsewhere, it was literally exactly the same aside from a few missed shots on the guy who was playing it’s behalf.
All of those melee events were totally scripted.
