Post-apocalyptic game The Last Of Us gets screenshots & play details

February 3rd, 2012 by Marc Comments

PS3 exclusive The Last Of Us gets some new screenshots thanks to Game Informer and they look amazing… this could be the game to look for this year..

The game’s official synopsis reads like this: Survive an apocalypse on Earth in The Last of Us, a PlayStation 3-exclusive title by Naughty Dog. Here, you will find abandoned cities reclaimed by nature. Here is a population decimated by a modern plague. Here, there are only survivors killing each other for food, weapons, or whatever they can get their hands on. Here, you find no hope. Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US.

So, apart from the screnshots, what else have we learned? Well, it will involve weapons and melee attacks. The will be breakable weapons and many things will have to be found or scavenged for.

Those sharp eyed among us will have spotted that some of the game happens in Pittsburgh, and developers note that it’s “not one long escort mission.”

Players will not be able to control the Ellie character, but her character will remain integral to both plot and gameplay…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
