Naughty Dog’s Comic-Con panel included another trailer for The Last of Us, this time introducing us to Bill, a survivalist and someone who owes Joel a favor:
The masked man turns out to be a new character named Bill, who knows Joel somehow and, as you can see in the cinematic, owes him a favor. What for? Well, we’re not talking about that yet but you’ll definitely be hearing more about Bill and what makes him tick in the months rolling up to launch. For starters, we also revealed that Bill is voiced by accomplished Hollywood actor, W. Earl Brown.
Bill and Ellie don’t get along at first, but the cinematic does set up a fetch quest for some car parts. And don’t worry, the infected appear to be right behind them.
The Last of Us will presumably be released sometime in 2013. Not that any of us want to wait that long.
