WOW sony i was not expecting this!

 

Basically from the trailer what i picked up is that

 

- The game looks amazing if its gameplay (as you expect from naughty dog)

- Everyone is infected like zombies but one of the zombie things looked like something different

- Set in a city which is deserted and everything is overgrown reminded me of I am Legend

- 2 Characters features one a young girl and one an older man

- Guns (pistol) & knife shown

Totally agree. 

 

The second pic exudes atmosphere. Very 'I am Legend'.... very 'Life after People'.

I love the idea of this game so far and I am really glad ND are pushing the story and character development aspects but the big question is will this be and open world game or linear like uncharted. I love the uncharted series and being linear is what allows ND to do what they have with the story and characters, but a game like the last of us should really have a big open world and if it has will the story and characters be able to develop as well as in uncharted.

 

I suppose only time will tell.

Looks brill. Survival game against nature, very interesting.

 

This could turn out to be the equivalent multiplayer brilliance that Uncharted is for the singleplayer experience.

 

If ND made this an 8 player co-op game against hordes of mutants that'd be epic... but if ND made this a co-op game where you start on your own and can have up to 8 join and leave as they wish over the course of the story campaign they've got not only a AAA title but a potential GotY.

Actually scrap that, it also says GTA V will have no online play, but we all know it will :smileyvery-happy:. They probably just say no online for games that are a long way off.

Does anyone know who developed the story for Last of Us?

 

I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm hoping Amy Hennig is involved. :)

Whilst I don't know whos involved in the story but Naughty Dog claim its going to have a decent plot.

Whilst I don't think uncharteds plot is any good at all I'm hoping ND can really deliver something decent in the way of storytelling here. Personally I think games are an often overlooked, yet fantastic medium for delivering a story.

Yeah right!

 

Fallout wasn't exactly character driven like this will be were you actually feel for them and relate to them having to make emotional decisions . A brutal survivor and a wise teenager having to work together doesn't come close to Fallout. That game never new the meaning 'emotion' ;)

 

Its neither an open world exploration game either, although ND have said its not linear and the environments can be explored to some degree.

 

Its in a separate world to Fallout and only the small similarities cannot be compared as a clone. Its a 3rd person survival horror WITH an emotional story :|

I'd say more more Enslaved with yet to be confirmed, but likely, survival horror shooting mechanics....

Fresh new details from Game Informer. 

 

 

The new issue of Game Informer has revealed a ton of new info on The Last Of Us. Apparently Naughty Dog almost made a new Jak & Daxter but were instead inspired by the Nathan/Tenzin sequence from Uncharted 2, and wanted to extend the idea of building a relationship over a whole game. There’s plot info, AI stuff and talk about the combat. Interesting there’s still some level of organisation in the game’s world rather then the usual ‘it’s all over’ style apocalypse. Read on for more.

 

You can also check out the latest The Last Of screens, see what you might have missed in our The Last Of Us trailer analysis, or find out more about Official PlayStation Magazine UK’s The Last Of Us cover feature


According to the article there are still elements of government and organisation. Ellie is an orphan at a boarding house within a military quarantine zone while Joel runs contraband through black markets. At the start the two have never meet until Joel is asked to sneak Ellie out of the quarantine zone for an unspecified reason. For some reason it goes wrong with the military getting involved and because Joel had been asked by a dying friend to help Ellie, he stays with her when the  ’safe haven’ he was meant to escort her to ‘doesn’t work out’.  As a result they end up travelling across the US.

 

The fungus needs a high dose of spores in a small area to infect a person. In dangerous areas gas masks can counter the threat. Those that test positive at military checkpoints are executed instantly.

 

The demo sees Joel and Ellie being ambushed by scavengers in Pittsburgh. The pair were driving through town in a truck. When an attacker’s attempt to lure them in by pretending to be wounded doesn’t work a bus crashes them into a shop. Here they’re pulled out of the truck and attacked.

 

The combat is mainly melee with Joel wrestling clubs from opponents and Ellie biting someone who grabs her. Both can throw objects like bricks to stun opponents. One of Ellie’s main roles revealed so far is calling out enemy locations while her skill set will develop over time. Gun combat seems limited with Joel only having a couple of bullets to fire. Later he’s able to scavange a few more shells from a defeated opponent. It doesn’t shy away from violence with victims begging for mercy before Joel bludgeons them to death. There’s also plenty of swearing.

 

The AI uses a system called Balence Of Power. Human enemies react according to the weapons you weild. When Joel has a gun they hide and flank. During the demo when Joel runs out of ammo the empty trigger clicks draw opponents in. There’s no recharging health either, damage is persistent and requires health packs to repair.

 

After the battle the two search the area. At one point Ellie crawls through a door as Joel holds it up so she can find something to wedge it open. On the other side they discover possessions, bodies and supplies that reveal the scavengers have been ambushing and killing people for years. When Ellie asks Joel how he knows so much he replies that he’s ‘been on both sides’.

 

There’s mention that you’ll face humans far more than infected and that there are multiple factions, not all of which will be hostile.

I really would have loved a new Jak and Daxter *cries*

 

Thankfully, from the new details it sounds like this is going to be awesome, which is some compensation I suppose.

I thought the same but its nice to know they took a risk and made a new IP rather then another numbered game people know ;)

Sounds like we'll see a new Jax & Daxter at some point, maybe there's a hint at the end of the collection like there was in Sly 3 ;) I just hope they haven't palmed it off to some small time developer like what happened to Sly 4 :Shame:
