The Last of Us

[ Edited ]

'The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.'
 
Have Naughty Dog struck gold again? Sure looks like it :)

Woah!!... Possible gold indeed... Looks like ND are moving to another franchise... :D ... not that this means the end of Drake, but Crash and Jak were both trilogies with a 'fourth' racing game... so unless we get Uncharted : Drakes' Racing, I'm not sure where that series can go from here... (except spinoffs from other developers)

Not entirely, they now have two separate development teams. Perhaps that means we'll get a Naughty Dog release every 12 months. :D

There is certainly an arsenal of vehicles to choose from.

Firstly, it looks like they're keeping a few things similar to Uncharted. The girl and the man (which given how the last line she narates is "he tells me..", it's more likely that he's a stranger rather than a relation) fight monsters (a familiar theme in Uncharted, particularly the first game), the father wields a revolver and the two are looking for ammo, which suggests the more resourceful just-pick-up-any-damn-thing-with-bullets method of armaments in the Uncharted vein.

 

Also, I'm guessing that these two will interact in the same way Nathan and a partner interact in Uncharted - you do most of the work, but your partner (Sully, Elena, Chloe etc.) will help open doors or move ledges or whatever. We're not even sure from whose perspective the game will take place (although in the interest of sales it's more likely to cast you as the man rather than the girl). I'd say it won't be a platformer (or loose interpretation of one) because people will simply call it an Uncharted re-skin. But hopefully we'll have more information at E3 2012.

 

I think it's fantastic that there are still new series' being explored even with such a deep lineup already. Overstrike is one to watch out for, and there's a whole slate of PS3 exclusives this year. The Xbox 360 has gone off the rails in exclusives though, everything new is made almost exclusively for Kinest, the only major game is yet another bloody Halo, and now it just seems to be cruising on multiplatforms and exclusive multiplayer tie-ins with Call of Duty every year. Good to see Sony still willing to give gamers a new experience.

You can also find the viral marketing style pre announcement trailers on the official site, and I think the ND parent site as well...

Well... aren't you just a smarty trousers.... :xLol:

 

Oh... and more news, rumour and speculation:

 

- In the pub in Uncharted 3 there are possible easter eggs, with the front page of the newspaper referring to the source of it all, and the calendar has marked down a possible release date..

- predictably people are suggesting that the hero looks like Nathan Drake, lol...

 

My own early speculation.... that 'thing' they kill looks suspiciously like Jar-Jar Binks... :Thumbs:

As soon as the ND logo showed up my interest raised. It looks very nice. The pretty post apocalyptic setting reminds me of Enslaved but a gritty style. Can't wait to see some gameplay.

Curse you Rockstar and Naughty Dog..... Max Payne 3 is becoming my most anticipated early 2012 release, and The Last of Us and GTAV are becoming my most anticipated teaser information games of the year...

It's starting to look a bit different from every other post-apocolyptic zombie game.

But, still not at the top of my list for 2012.

Early days though, still a lot more that might persuade me otherwise.

Check out the new trailer: 




 

Hopefully we get to see a little more at E3, and would I be asking too much for a release date at E3 too? Can only hope.

One thing I'm still not clear on is: How the game will actually play.

The cutscenes are all nice but what do you do inbetween the cutscenes - show us some gameplay footage.

They've shown the gameplay to press recently. Just after the truck ambush cutscene. IGN have made a video describing what the gameplay is like:
http://au.ign.com/videos/2012/05/17/playstation-conversation-the-last-of-us-live-action-reenactment

I bet they show this part of the game at E3 during the sony press conference.

Yeah thats sounds pretty reasonable, You bring out a new teaser trailer a month before e3, with the truck crash ambush and show the aftermath as gameplay stage demo.

 

For the past 3 years or so, the best stage demos at Sony's conference has been, the Uncharted 2,  God of War 3 and the year after it was Uncharted 3
