Naughty Dog has released a new CGI trailer for their upcoming PS3 exclusive Last of Us.
The footage is the first to be seen since its VGA reveal last year. Both Joel and Ellie, the protagonists of the game, are shown in the trailer where they are ambushed by hunters.
The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic action title, set in a world where the earth’s population has been decimated by a fungal virus that infects human beings.
The majority of enemies could well be uninfected scavengers, much like the antagonist’s in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, a point of comparison to The Last of Us.
The Last of Us is planned for release on PS3 in “late 2012 or early 2013″.
(there’s something wrong with Windows Live Writer, so I can’t embed the video on this post.)
