It’s been nearly six months since we announced The Last of Us and development has been a beehive of activity. If you have seen any of the coverage, you might have read about Joel and Ellie’s time spent in an abandoned city they have driven to. We are excited to share a fresh video with you today. This video should answer some of the questions you had after reading the stories about what went down inside those city walls. You’ll get a glimpse into the lethality of the world Joel and Ellie are surviving in and what being a survivor in that world truly means.
Joel and Ellie won’t have an easy road ahead on their journey across the U.S. Their path will intersect with other remaining survivors, some of whom won’t be so friendly. In this scene Joel and Ellie continue the journey west in a salvaged pickup truck. The sombre tune of Hank Williams Sr. echoes the desolation of the world of The Last of Us. As they drive towards the next destination on their route, really just another place to find resources that will help them survive, they run into some hunters. What happens next is something you have to witness to understand. Check it out:
What you watched here is only a peek into how alone and forsaken the world has become. Our world is a brutal, lethal place in The Last of Us. Be ready for things to get much worse.
We can’t wait to share this genre defining game with you. The hounds have started to bay. Get prepared for the coming months and look out for more information at E3.
