[Community Showcase] Naughty Dog sheds some light on The Last of Us

Posted on December 11, 2011 - 1:00pm by Fandango

TLDR;

The last of us stars Joel, a middle-aged man, and Ellie, a teenaged girl. Both need to survive in a post-apocalyptic world that was struck with a plague.

 

 

Naughty Dog's 'The last of us' has been given a trailer at this year's VGA's hosted by Spike TV. From the trailer alone, people, including myself, began to speculate that this might be set in the Uncharted universe. It's definitely a plausible theory, what with the girl's name being Ellie. This could have meant she was the daughter of Nathan and Elena. Though, my theory now is that she's named Ellie because she looks like Ellen Page.

An official press release teaches us that the game is not set within said universe, and that it stars the heroic Joel, and the teen-aged girl Ellie.

   "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."

Considering that it's Naughty Dog, I'm expecting great things from this game. I'm quite certain that it'll throw the entire genre on its head. At least, that's what I hope it'll do.

An official ESRB rating is pending, and more information can be found over at www.lastofus.com and www.naughtydog.com
