Last of Us E3 2012 Gameplay

Runtime: 7:23    Author: PlayStation    Category: Trailers

Naughty Dog today showed off The Last of Us at the PlayStation E3 press conference.

Joel and Ellie are attempting to get to the bridge and out of the city. They are tourists in an area that's controlled by hunters. They are hunted and yet they too are hunters. Everyone is willing to do whatever it takes to survive. What you'll see here is something that we're calling Balance of Power AI. Enemies will react realistically to whatever situation your combat style forces them into. Playing as Joel, Ellie's help and whatever weapons you can scavenge are your best shot at progressing in this brutal, violent world.

The Last of Us is genre-defining experience blending survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who's braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.

The Last of Us is exclusive for PS3. Stay tuned for more details as E3 kicks off.

I'm jumping on the hype wagon here. I've never been good at survival type games though.

I wasn't that impressed by the post apocalyptic setting or zombies when it was announced, but I can't deny that is one amazing trailer. I'm on board now.

I'm picking from what ND have said themselves that the 'zombies' will have a very minimal role... it won't be a zombie shooter, but their presence will always be around you.

I'm not saying there won't be setpieces where you don't try and kill them, but the trailers we've seen so far have pushed human conflict more..

Oh hells yes, do want. Plus the protagonist is Joel and that's pretty much the bossest name ever *totally not called Joel*. One thing I will say is her voice and attitude is seems too old for her size and age.

Looks good. Hoping it will be a little bit less linear than the uncharted games. Will definately have to give it a blast when it drops..

yea I'm picking up this is more survival in a "zombified" world rather than a zombie shooter. Which is an interesting & good way to go IMO

Uncharted has an awesome story with great gameplay, just what did Uncharted "fail on"???

At first view this looks like it was 100% scripted, but then you realize this is real game footage which will have many permutations.

Definite day one buy.
