The Last of Us - Announcement Trailer

Runtime: 2:39    Author: thelastofus    Category: Trailers

Sony's new game was revealed at the VGAs in the weekend, proving to be - as many people guessed - The Last of Us, a new survival-horror franchise from Uncharted developer Naughty Dog.

It looks pretty cool, what we can see of it (which doesn't appear to include any gameplay), but then we're suckers for post-apocalyptic narrative and Naughty Dog, so they kinda had us from the get-go anyway.

Neil Duckmann, Creative Director at Naughty Dog and Bruce Straley, Game Director, provided this description of the title over on the PlayStation Blog:

"The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States."

An exciting reveal - if perhaps not something no one would believe.

The hype was so much greater than the result. Looks pretty cool though.

I have seen some comments raging about the place in news feeds- "Not another zombie game."

There is details which suggest this isn't another zombie game in the press. The beginning of this trailer supports that...

And then he shoots that monster in the head.

So it's not actually a zombie... But it's still a zomboid.

The last Zombie title I brought was Res4 on the PS2. This is a contender for the next in my collection.

Just another post apocalyptic zombie / mutant game. I'm sure it'll have some people drooling, but to me it's total meh.

I havn't played call of duty, not a FPS fan. Which is a problem with most Zombie games, FPS seems to be their favourite hangout. The exception is Dead Rising (1, 2 or 2 reboot), a victim of my boycott against Capnomnom.

As 'The Last of Us' is a Naughty Dog title, I'd expect 3rd person. Should it turn out to the first person... well...

(Actaully, I do have Dead Nation, seem's impossible to avoid Zombie titles, if you don't buy them you get given them for free!)

Look... if it had almost any other name associated to it, I would dismiss it as the next cliche'd zombie game, but Naughty Dog's record speaks for itself, so I'm optimistic that something good will happen.
