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

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.

Sounding better by the day.



Sounds great! I like some of the details & hints and especially the setting, sounds bleak but with hope. I updated the first post in the thread. Thanks again!

Yup, certainly a game that is right up my street. I wonder if Ellie is controllable. Would be good if you switched characters for certain actions like Ellie crawling through a small gap, then to Joel for some melee combat ;)

That would be awesome especially if its as seamless as the transitions in UC3 which blew my mind at times.

Haha that was annoyingly brilliant those transitions. The amount of times I waited to gain control of Nate after a cut scene only to find that the game hand handed it back to me without me even realising.

Some more screens. Surely these aren't in game shots? The quarantine looking one and the one below look more like artists impressions to me, but the rest do look like they could be in game shots :o

 

 

A bunch of new The Last Of Us Screens and art have popped up on AllGamesBeta from… somewhere. There’s no information but they look a lot like the level covered in the Games Informer The Last Of Us info. They also look amazing. If this is what the game really looks like running on a PS3 then I just don’t know what to do with myself.

Oh those are so nice! I think this is what I've wanted in a game for a long long time ever since I got really in to zombie films as a kid (and I mean really in to them lol) now I know this isn't a zed flick but it shares so many aspects and lacks the cheesy silliness which we get in Resi evil games and other zed games. Anyhow, looking great :D

An interesting post here about the environments in the game and some kool links to photo's etc. I'm a keen fan of urban exploration and decaying forgotten landscapes, from Chernobyl to an old Pontins in Hemsby where tree's are now growing towards upwards through the buildings... kool stuff!

Well done on the post edit :D Looks better and has more info now YAY!

As above i agree its not many games that dont get leaked before the announcement. Although remember before the trailer someone had found that news paper with the last of us on it? That must have been a prety big hint haha although i didnt think it would have been noticed untill the teaser trailer

 

p.s A nice few screenshots over here: http://www.lastofus.com/screenshots

Just as i thought,  " The Last Of Us " has raised the Graphical barr once more.

.

" It’s clear that Naughty Dog has taken it to another level." ( http://gamingbolt.com/uncharted-3-vs-the-last-of-us-character-model-comparison ) Screenshots comparing Uncharted 3 to The Last Of Us.

Though very excited for more news, trailers and screenshots of this game, one thing springs to mind... Based in America... AGAIN. Surely game devs have more imagination than to keep basing games in the same sodding place all the time
