At Spike’s VGA awards held last weekend, Sony blew the covers off their latest exclusive called, 'The Last Of Us' developed by none other than Naughty Dog, themselves. The story, much like Will Smith’s movie, I am Legend takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where a deadly plague has wiped out civilization, mutating the survivors into zombie-like creatures.
Who will you play as
You play as one of two characters, Ellie, a spunky American teenager or Joel, a hardened survivor as they try and survive every day by scavenging ammunition and supplies. According to Naughty Dog, the game will blend survival horror with their bombastic brand of action to create a “genre defining experience”.
Even though a post-apocalyptic scenario has been done to death a million times by now in video games, it’ll be interesting to see Naughty Dog’s take on the matter. The game has not been given a release date, yet but, don’t expect it before 2013. In the meantime, check out the very first trailer embedded above.
