Naughty Dog Reveals The Last of Us


Before Spike Tv’s VGAs aired last night there was alot of speculation surrounding SCEA’s new IP called The Last of Us. With very little information to go by leading up to the big Saturday night unveiling, many believed the game to be in the hands of either Sony Santa Monica or Guerrilla Games. Imagine everyone’s surprise when the makers of Uncharted formally announced The Last of Us during the show.

And they brought a trailer with them!

The Last of Us revolves around a post-apocalyptic world where the population has been infected by a fungus that has driven them insane. Two survivors seen in the trailer, Joel ( voiced by Troy Baker ) and a teenager named Ellie ( voiced by Ashley Johnson ), must try to survive what’s left of the United States in this ‘genre-defining’ new title.

Everything shown in the above trailer is said to be in-game footage, according to Naughty Dog. A seperate team has been busy working on the Last of Us since 2009 but no release date has been given for the new title as of yet. Be sure to check out Naughty Dog’s official website for more details.

    I really hope it doesn’t have the same controls scheme/aiming system as uncharted.

    lol Well played Jason, Well played. Now lets hope Naughty Dog make the best zombie game ever, because honestly, this is possibly the only reason we will buy the game for.

    This isn’t exactly a zombie game, per se. Zombies rise from the dead. The enemies in this game appear to be people infected with a fungus that drives them mad and/or may use the body as a host. Plants are even taking over the world. When was the last time that happened in a zombie game?

    Anyway, I’m sure Naughty Dog can and will make this a game worth purchasing.

    why does everyone say zombies are played to death every enemy type of been played to death. For me i dont give a damn what the enemy is as long as its a good game

    not a zombie fan myself. Looks good though.

    If that truly is all in game footage… sign me up! My guess is that this game will be released on november 2012 since that would put the development cycle at more or less 2.5 years.

    @Eddie: Why so serious? Zombies are something we should ALL be a fan of!

    If you really think about it, the enemies in this game aren’t even that far off from the enemies we’ve had in the uncharted series.

    @Kane112: I think the issue is that there aren’t many new innovations in the ‘zombie’ genre, so sometimes it seems like it’s more played to death than other types of games.

    @isli true but thats not the zombies fault lol blame developers

  11. #11 by mowmow on December 11th, 2011 [ 11160 Points ]

    the game looks like it might be a fun co-op game. well i hope at least from the trailer

  12. #12 by EdEN on December 11th, 2011 [ 131363 Points ]

    @Isli: Dead Island is fun. I’ve played it for a couple of hours and will definitely buy the whole game at the end of next year.

    Looks good from what I can see, though gameplay footage would be nice. ^_^

    I liked, maybe will see another Naughty Dog master piece soon
    I think they are not zombies.
    Probably human being should be changed, perhaps by a NUKE, like that movie THE HILL HAVE EYES.
    Awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. #16 by dragon290513 on December 11th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    from the trailer i think a survival-horror with platforming and cinematic, extremely cinematic cutscene.

    did you watch the trailer in reverse or something?

  20. #20 by EdEN on December 11th, 2011 [ 131363 Points ]

    @Jay: Didn’t you do it like that as well?

    LOL

    IMO I’m glad they chose something not zombie, as Sakinah said, this fungus might make people similar to zombies, but they are not zombies..
    No oness going to be happy with any new games, as zombies, aliens, mutants, etc.. have been used to death.. this game, being based on a real life fungus is a step out of the norm, as much as I think can be done now days..
    Can’t wait to see more..

    Nice trailer and is that girl Ellen Page? Also for a second when they opened the door I thought it was Enslaved 2. :P

  23. #23 by sovarn on December 12th, 2011 [ 719 Points ]

    looks like a great trailer.

  24. #24 by Jay on December 12th, 2011 [ 83111 Points ]

    if the fungus causes the people to act against their will, they’re zombies in that sense. Might not be undead zombies, but zombies nonetheless

  25. #25 by Pedro on December 12th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    i’m actually impressed that all the speculation about the fungus was correct! seems cool and looks great, though i wonder what will it bring to the table.
