The Last of Us a “Genre-Defining Experience”; New Info, Screens Released

Developed by Naughty Dog exclusively for the PS3, The Last of Us was only just announced, but now we’ve got more info and more screens, straight from Sony.

Sony described the game, and gave a synopsis of the plot and characters:

The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Abandoned cities are being reclaimed by nature and the remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.

ND’s Evan Wells added:

We are excited to finally unveil The Last of Us, a project the team has been working hard on for some time. Naughty Dog’s mission is to change the way people experience videogames. We are confident The Last of Us will take a leap forward in cinematic gaming and storytelling, providing gamers with an experience unlike anything else in the industry.
