E3 2012: Naughty Dog's 'The Last of Us' Gameplay Blowout

If you have been living under a rock for the past seven months and haven’t heard, Naughty Dog is making a new PlayStation 3 exclusive game, The Last of Us. Announced back at the Spike Video Game Awards in 2011, The Last of Us is a dark, gritty, brutal, and surreal tale of two companions surviving in a post-apocalyptic world.

The population has been wiped out by a plague and the few survivors left must survive any way possible. The main characters Joel and Ellie can be seen doing this very thing, surviving, fighting to the death, in this first gameplay trailer we got from E3. Check the video (and screens) out below:

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. – PlayStation

There is no release date time frame at the moment. When we get more details, we’ll bring them to you for sure.
