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.
