Wow. So the world premiere trailer (recorded entirely with the in-game engine as we’re told) is here and it looks great. The developer is definitively Naughty Dog and oh, Ellen Page appears to be starring in the game. I’m personally really excited to see the contrast of the lush, jungle environments Naughty Dog is known for in an apocalyptic setting and if anyone can bring true cinematic value to a zombie game–it’s Naughty Dog. What do you guys think?
UPDATE: Naughty Dog has released more details on The Last of Us:
“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.
Abandoned cities reclaimed by nature. A population decimated by a modern plague. Survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on.
Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl [Ellen Page] who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US.”
The more I hear about this game, the more excited I’m getting.
