The Last of Us wowed everyone with its surprise reveal at the 2011 Spike Videogame Awards. Since that reveal Naughty Dog was been awfully quiet about their plans for the title, outside of a brief 10 minute demo first shown to the press at E3 and then released to the general public earlier this fall. The good news for everyone wanting to experience the post apoclyptic tale of Joel & Elle is that they’ll be able to get their hands on the game on May 7th 2013.
This new trailer certainly sets the apocalyptic mood right off the hop with twitching zombies, barren urban environment and enough tension to make even the most relaxed person sit on the edge of their seat. It is clear that Joel’s teenage companion, Elle, plays a huge role in the story. While her significance is still a mystery to us I doubt that Naughty Dog would go with the cliché “child carrying the anti-virus in her blood” trope. Knowing them we are in for some great twists and turns.
Check out the trailer below.
