For those of you who haven’t been following the VGA’s, you might not have heard about the newly announced “The Last of Us,” the upcoming Playstation 3 exclusive zombie game by Naughty Dog (makers of the PS3 series Uncharted). After a few days of speculation, we’ve finally got some concrete details about this awesome-looking post-apocalyptic zombie game.
Check out the trailer, which shows a middle aged man and a young girl (who suspiciously resemble Gerard Butler and Ellen Page) scavenging through a derelict building in search of supplies. They encounter and do battle with infected and, after being overrun, burst out into daylight, revealing a decidedly post-apocalyptic setting.
Here’s what Naughty Dog themselves had to say about The Last of Us:
Abandoned cities reclaimed by nature. A population decimated by a modern plague. Survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US.
