The Last of Us 2 will be “a story about hate.”
Naughty Dog unleashes E3 Uncharted 4 footage to the public
Warning: This articles describes parts of the end of The Last Of Us, including one of the climactic scenes. If you plan to play the game, you have been warned.
I crouch down and listen carefully. There are six of them, moving slowly around the abandoned office space I’ve entered, trying to find a way through to the center of the city. Four of the enemies are Clickers. They’re blind, so if I move very quietly, they won’t spot me with their echolocation. But then there are two Runners. Still in the first stages of infection, they can see me coming. Using a gun is out of the question: That will bring every single one of them all down on me immediately. Not only that…I don’t have enough bullets.
The Last of Us is the upcoming PS3 game by Naughty Dog, makers of one of my favorite game series of all time, Uncharted. Uncharted is the light-hearted adventure of Indiana Jones-esque Nathan Drake and his globetrotting pals, and it takes us from one dazzling destination to the next. The Last of Us’ mood and mechanics have almost nothing in common with the award-winning Uncharted, but from the hour I spent with it, it looks like a worthy successor.
With their Uncharted series, Naughty Dog proved they could do Indiana Jones-style adventures right. After watching these particular three minutes of gameplay of The Last of Us, which will be released on May 7, 2013, it doesn’t take long to see that the game company will be conquering the zombie apocalypse genre too.
For those of us who like our world a little more post-apocalyptic, Naughty Dog is bringing the fun(gus). The Last of Us, the highly anticipated title for the PS3, will show the world that a plague of endoparasitoid Cordyceps is every bit as deadly as a zombie one. In fact, the results are pretty much the same: desperation, a struggle for survival, and slipped standards in personal hygiene.
