The game takes place in a post apocalyptic world, where the population was infected and decimated by a plague, and survivors do whatever they can for food and supplies. We follow the journey of two survivors, Ellie the young but wise teenage girl and Joel, a survivor and her protector in their journey through the United States.
There were several teasers to the game including a clip from BBC’s Planet Earth showing insects infected with parasitic fungi and an in-game reference in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
The Last of Us is the first time Naughty Dog has created a second new intellectual property to the same console generation.
Even though not much is known about The Last of Us, it already received praise for its outstanding visual graphics and innovative gameplay mechanics. It has won a considerable amount of E3 awards.
