The Last of Us Ventures Out In May 2013; New Trailer Inside

By Ishaan . December 10, 2012 . 10:15am

Sony have released a new trailer for The Last of Us, Naughty Dog’s next PlayStation 3 game, along with a release date announcement—May 7th, 2013 in both the U.S. and Europe. Take a look at the trailer below:



Pre-ordering The Last of Us in both regions will get you the game’s “Sights and Sounds Pack,” which includes the game’s official soundtrack, a PS3 dynamic theme featuring the game’s cover art, and Winter Joel and Winter Ellie PSN avatars.


Additionally, pre-ordering the game from GameStop (or participating retailers in Europe) will get you the Survival Pack, which includes bonus experience points for the game’s multiplayer mode, a multiplayer melee attack booster, extra starting in-game cash, special customizable character items for multiplayer, and two unlockable bonus skins for Joel and Ellie.


Yes, The Last of Us will have multiplayer, but Sony and Naughty Dog are keeping details on the multiplayer mode under wraps for the time being.

    Will this game be out in Japan too…?

    • Budgiecat

      Yes but with an Anime reskin

    • Aoshi00

      Yeah, should be dual audio as well, like the Uncharted series. Love the cover art here, and Troy Baker’s awesome.. the last of Us, Bioshock Infinity, Catherine, FF13, etc… so versatile.

        Oh okay, I have not heard release news on it so was wondering, I am really interested ^^

        • Aoshi00

          I imported heavy rain and the uncharted series, including golden abyss on vita, they all have dual audio, excellent Jpn dub too especially heavy rain. hopefully Jpn release date for the last of us would been announced soon too :)

  • KingGunblader

    I’m REALLY excited to experience this game. Joel and Ellie seem to have incredible chemistry. I hope a demo comes soon!

  • JustThisOne

    Multiplayer? I wonder how they’ll make that work… Unless they mean co-op.

  • riceisnice

    I like how Ellie is all like, “Fuck you, you fucking fucker!!”

    • Budgiecat

      so hot

  • Mark my words…

    GOTY 2013.

    • Budgiecat

      JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle is GOTY 2013

    • sandra10

      Not sure about that – it has some stiff competition: Bioshock Infinite, Dark Souls 2, Watch Dogs, possibly Bayonetta 2, Ground Zeroes… and it’s not like Kamiya and Mikami make sub-par games.

    • KingRuff

      You mean

      2013 YOTG.

      • So damn true.

    • Elvick

      I’m thinking it’ll probably be one of my faves. I’m thinking I’ll love Ni no Kuni more though.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Ugh, thats a long time from now. Can’t wait.

  • Göran Isacson

    Man, it was almost a shock to see that there ARE big bands of humans in this game who aren’t just scavenging gangs and hostile marauders. It’s all I’ve seen for so long from it that I almost doubted there was any civilization left in this world.

  • Wake

    I love you The Last of Us.

  • YouGusta

    Love the box art.
