Info on The Last of Us

Very few people in the gaming community, if at all, have little or no idea about Naughty Dog, the creators of the Uncharted series. All the Uncharted games are cinematic masterpieces with amazing replay potential. Everything was spot on with those games and each successive installment outshined its predecessor by leaps and bounds.

That is exactly why everyone was so excited when Naughty Dog mentioned their new IP some time back; a post-apocalyptic survival game going by the name "The Last of Us." We had been hearing a lot about how it was going to be different from the Uncharted series in the fact that it will be more serious and darker. Finally this E3 we got to see it in action.

Naughty Dog gave a lengthy 7 minute demo of the game and it exceeded every one of my expectations. The action is more brutal, the graphics are just jaw dropping and the voice acting and cinematics are what we come to expect from Naughty Dog, perfect.

Little things they have incorporated are definitely going to add to the tension they are trying set up. They are bringing back the non-regenerating health bar, items and ammo will be sparse and from the demo you can notice that even when you try to get something from the inventory, the game does not pause! Yes, they are incorporating a live inventory into the game.

The launch date had not been mentioned even at E3 but, earlier this week Naughty Dog mentioned in Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that the game will officially be coming out in 2013. It seems that majority of the great games revealed at E3 will be launching in 2013. Oh well, till then check out the E3 game demo linked below and trust us to keep you posted about any and all new news about this game.
