Today, Sony put out a new trailer for Naughty Dog’s next major game, The Last of Us, a survival action-adventure set during the outbreak of a plague. The game stars Joel, a man trying to survive the crisis, and Ellie, a teenager that ends up working together with him. Take a look at the new trailer below:



Sony say that the area shown in the video doesn’t represent the full extent of the damage done by the plague. The world depicted in the complete game will be “much worse”.

    Wow, that surely was a bad day for the bus driver.

    I love the sceneries of this game, remind me of Shambala (Uncharted 2) and the forests of Enslaved:OttW

    •  Yeah reminds me a lot of Enslaved, which was highly underrated…

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      Well the Enslaved Lead Designer is working on this game.

  • PK212

    Is it just me or does the main character look like Drake from Uncharted?

    • AnimusVox

       Haha yeah an older Drake

      • Ronald Bixler

         Looks more like an older version of Alan Wake, after he stole James’ (Silent Hill 2) jacket.

    • Chow

       I don’t know what you look like, but I’m sure more people than just you look like Drake.

  • Chiupon

    Ellen Page is in everything these days.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Troy Baker doing his thang~

    But it looks good as hell – those graphics are flawless. Can’t wait to see some gameplay.

    • brian yep

      I think it looks a little bit overdone with character designs.
      I feel like it tries to make them look too gritty.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Considering the setting and their circumstances, that’s perfectly logical that they’d look gritty.

  • This is looking fantastic! I can’t wait.

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Outstanding! I can’t wait for this to come out > <

  • Nicolas Vasquez

    1st thoughts when looking at characters:

    is that ellen page?

  • Niermyico

    I. *waits for it* ..came.

  • Makes me wonder what their PS4 games will look like. And If I’m not wrong this is the first time Troy Baker get a motion capture? I love this guy and anticipating this game. I’m sure we’ll get to see the gameplay at E3.

  • The_Real_Oyashiro

    I need this… NOW!

  • eliel

    • Ronald Bixler

       That’s just the plague…

  • Guest

     Why won’t they acknowledge it’s Ellen Page? 

    I mean, her name is “Ellie”…

    • Kyle Fedora

      Not anymore, they remodeled her face, she doesn’t look like Ellen Page anymore: http://www.examiner.com/article/the-last-of-us-old-vs-new-ellie-character-model-comparison

  • boundries_san

    This shows that this game is not only vs Zombie ehh?? it is also facing other survivor here. This is going to one of great game here.^^

    Can’t wait for this game and not to forget the song at the last also sounds cool.

  • Kai2591

    Geez why can’t post-apocalyptic people just go along and work together to survive and live happily ever after.
    LOL who am I kidding.

  • Angeru_Lito

    It looks amazing can’t wait to see how it plays , The Last of Us : Ellen Page simulator

  • I’m really liking this trend of Walking Dead-esque post apocalyptic universes. Y’know, the kind of universe where the world has gone to hell and the people with it, and you’re focused on survival. This kind of humanity decay is aweeesssome. I’m glad it’s finally made it to a game.

  • Göran Isacson

    I wonder if those humans were infected, or just trying to rob and plunder whoever came their way. Looks like this struggle for survival is going to be a very brutal one… just the way I like it.
