After conquering the video game world with the Uncharted series, Naughty Dog is ready for their next challenge, and it of course involves zombies. Possibly. The one good glimpse we got at the infected in the Spike TV Video Game Awards trailer for The Last of Us wasn’t conclusive either way. Though they were definitely cannibals.
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.
Zombies or not, The Last of Us is one PS3 exclusive that looks like a game you can play until the world ends.
